Braedyn Murphy used to think nothing important ever happened in her sleepy town of Puerto Escondido. But that was before she learned she was a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons. Now Braedyn fights to protect humanity from the Lilitu - the beautiful, souls-stealing daughters of Lilith.

As she fights the Lilitu, Braedyn must also fight her growing love for her boyfriend Lucas - because even a simple kiss could end his life. Their only ray of hope is an angel’s offer to make Braedyn human, but it’s an offer she can’t accept until the world is safe from the Lilitu.

Braedyn knows she’s a key player in this ancient war... but she’s not ready to believe she just might be humanity’s best hope of surviving the final battle for Earth.

So since the first book blew me away, I knew I had to read the sequel. At first, the story seems fine. Then I hit the last few chapters.

Mind Blown!

Plot: If you have not read the first book,  I strongly suggest you do. This story carries over with what happened in the first book. It’s action packed, lots of great plot twists and turns. Nothing is ever boring nor confusing. I fell right back into the story as if I never left. It’s just really awesome.

Love: This love is soo complicated. And no, it has nothing to do with another guy. It’s just the situation that their in. Braedyn has to watch her back for everything. They can never have any small amount of peace for fear that Braedyn might hurt someone. It’s like it within her reach yet soooo far away. And because of this, it leaves Braedyn desperate for a change…

Ending: Braedyn struggling in who she is and what she wants really takes over this story. I felt her emotions just charging at taking that chance of life that she never thought she get. And then when it all slipped out of her hands…NOOOOOOOOO! Ugh. Heart broken. The ending really did a number on me. Not only in my head but my heart. What just happened here? And why didn’t I see that coming???

It’s awesome. If anything this story just begs to be read. It’s combines some great fantasy elements with everyday struggles of a teenager. It’s also carries over so much emotion that you feel invested in the characters. It’s makes me feel so sad about that ending and how I need the next book already. Incubus is a successful sequel that really took me for a wild ride. Strong and entertaining, Incubus is fantastic.

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    Uh oh, that sending sounds stressful Savy! I haven’t read the first book in this series, but I’m at least glad to know there’s no love triangle. The romance sounds painful nonetheless, but not in a frustrating just-make-a-romantic-decision type of way, just more of a rip-your-heart-out kind of way. I’m always a glutton for that kind of punishment!

  2. Oh no! I’m not liking that ending! Still, you make this sound so good. Oh 5 bites… I’m sold.

    I’m going to have to look up the first book. And I love when an ending just blows your mind!
