A book that - despite three star rating - is hard to put down. The writing is clumsy at first but improves. A little cheesy but also a little different. It's just not something easy to look away from for some reason.
After the beginning, there is no real main character besides perhaps the incubus. Marcus fades into the background, and different characters share page time. Some are likeable, some are annoying, which is the way these things usually go. Most of them end up damned in some way or another to where it loses a little of the oomph effect.
Marcus is definitely the best character. He has compassion but temper. He's not annoying like the family who shunned him for being gay. I disliked the vamp angle because really it just became annoying. I didn't want so many changed and sticking around. The stereotype was obnoxious. And while Conrad was supposed to be this intimidating and scary creature, no one seemed scared of him for long. That almost made it comedic, but it probably wasn't meant to be.
This isn't a real incubus feel unfortunately, but the book is worth a read. I expected a more complex twist at the end and not everything added up.
