Ok so, this book was basically my dream come true. I mean, it was a m/m/m menage-esque relationship that included both a vampire and an incubus—my top two favorite paranormal creatures! Seriously I couldn’t even snatch this book up fast enough when I saw that in the blurb.
But of course a book still has to have good characters and plot and writing and all that in order for me to like it… and thank goodness it did or I would’ve been so disappointed!
The characters were easily my favorite thing about the book. Each one of the three was different and unique, and each one was likeable. Anders (the incubus) was funny just because of who he was, because he was so crude and crass and gruff and said the most ridiculous, inappropriate things. And Curtis (the wizard) was funny because of his actual sense of humor and sarcastic remarks. However, Luc was still my favorite. (I can’t help it. I’m partial to vampires. So sue me.) He wasn’t all that brooding or tortured, but the little references to his past, being bullied by the other vampires, really made me feel for him and also made me so happy for him that he finally found his own unique, little coterie. And he was also funny in his own way because his refinement and general vampire-ness gave him his own brand of snark, though he usually kept it to himself rather than saying things out loud. So altogether this group of characters really had me smiling and just enjoying the time I was spending with them, and I enjoyed getting to see things through each one of their POVs.
The plot was also great—it made sense, it flowed well, and it had a nice medium pace. And there was a fantastic, action-packed climax and a resolution that left me satisfied but still looking forward to more.
I also liked how much thought the author put into the supernatural society and even the way each creature worked regarding their souls and abilities. It was complex, but in a good way, and I was fascinated every time I got to learn more.
I do have to admit that I was actually bummed there weren’t any real sex scenes between the three guys because, come on, vampire and incubus, but maybe in the next book… (A girl can hope!)
Overall, this was a fun, well thought-out, supernatural-filled book with super likeable characters whom I can’t wait to see more of!
Anyone who likes M/M(/M) urban fantasy, vampires, incubi, wizards, likeable characters, and fun books.
