Book Review: Incubus by Carol Goodman
It reads like a paranormal romance with all kinds of fae and creatures from both folklore and the paranormal. I like vivid description and fairytale mythology as much as the next person, but this does not make a novel.

Some things I figured out early on but even when its revealed there was some nice added twists.
