Ezra didn’t exist as far as his kind were concerned. The shameful circumstances of his birth meant he wasn’t even on the ladder of the demon hierarchy. Use or be used were the only lessons he’d learned at the feet of his fellow supernaturals.
Bonding the only vascellum in existence should have brought the status and wealth he’d craved in the endless darkness and pain of his youth. Instead, Finn had brought love and loyalty he didn’t deserve and the demons who sought to pull him back into the night.
An incubus should treasure and protect his vascellum, but what happens when it’s the demon who needs protecting?
3rd part of Incubus, an m/m novella series. Graphic material with plenty of angst. NOT a standalone.
I swear every time I think I have down where I think Emma Jaye is going to go with this series she throws me for a loop. Not that I am complaining because each book in this series keeps getting better and better and more twists are thrown in even while you are reading it. I love a read where it is almost impossible to see where the author is going with the book. It makes it that much better when there is definitely the elements of surprise throughout the read, especially in a series such as this one.
This book picks up where book two left off with Finn being taken by the Alpha wolves and whom he thought were both his and Ezra’s friends. That is the thing though. Even though they believe they are helping Finn they still consider him and Ezra both friends. The unfortunate circumstances surrounding everything is whether Finn gave consent to being with Ezra willingly or not so willingly.
Though Finn and Ezra both try and tell everyone that consent was given no one is listening. Worse yet when Ezra reveals parts of his past to his captures, though they want to believe him they are unsure of whether he is telling the truth or not.
Unknowingly because of bringing the allegations to the council, they have placed both Finn and Ezra in danger and now it will take some old friends and unlikely new friends to protect them from the harm that is quickly coming their way.
The true question is will Ezra and Finn be able to pull it together in order to protect one another if not themselves from the new threat or is their fate already sealed for them and they just do not know it yet?
I have found myself wavering back and forth on whether I like Ezra or not and if his intentions with Finn are purely selfish or if he is truly in love with him and does not realize it yet. I have not finished my opinion on this just yet but I am starting to lean more one way than the other. This book has by far been the best out of the series as of yet and I truly cannot wait for the next book. If it is even half as good as this one we are in for a lot of surprises.
