An incubus who feeds off the sexual desires of others, Roth de Lis has never been denied the pleasure of a woman’s body…until now. Lilah, once a warrior maiden in the service of a goddess, languishes on earth after being cast out from the slopes of Mount Olympus.
Lilah will do anything to return home, including betraying Roth. As she spins her web of lies, Roth begins a slow, wicked seduction that eventually threatens to consume them both. But when Lilah’s deceit comes to light, will their torrid love affair be able to overcome a pact with the darkest of gods?
ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.
Lilah was a warrior maiden. Once a warrior for Artemis, she was now banished from the Forgotten Forrest to roam the mortal land. She found a way to get back to the goddess’ good grace, but the simple task might end up proving difficult.
Roth de Lis had an endless supply of females. As an incubus, getting lost in pleasure was his nature. But an encounter with a feisty female made him crave something more. He didn’t know how she could possibly seal his fate.
I am already aware that Celia Aaron is versatile in her writings, so I was excited to see what she could do with mythology/fantasy. Considering I love Greek mythology, I definitely enjoyed this one.
I was just another one of his conquests, another notch for his bedpost, if he even had any bedpost left after his lifetimes of lovers.
Roth was not how I expected him to be. Like how he was flirty and commanding, but he also quite soft on the inside. I love reading about his background and his incubus. However, for most of the book, I felt him and the incubus was too detached – like he was talking about something that’s not related to him.
I knew I could take care of myself, had done it all my life, but Roth was the only male who’d ever made me feel like being wrapped in his arms was where I belonged.
I like how Lilah was badass. She could certainly took care of herself in any situation. She’s willing to trust within reason and not afraid to put her heart out there even though she had every reason not to.
The overall storyline was light and even though nothing surprising, it was entertaining. I love a lot of the supporting characters. My favorite was definitely cheeky Apollo lol! I love the mythological elements but as a book with fantasy setting, it could use a little more elaboration of the “world”. Oh also with him being an incubus, I wanted him to be more dirty haha!
Incubus is a tale of inner strength and rising up to one’s full potential. It would appeal to readers who enjoy stories of fantasy and mythology.
