Review quote

This is a wonderfully clever and inventive tale of magic, yet still contemporary and believable. The author's subtle yet very effective use of foreshadowing keeps the reader engaged, and the surprising ending has a lovely dose of bittersweet romance and a good dash of optimism * Romantic Times * Love the Twilight series? Then read Carol Goodman's new vampire thriller, Incubus * Stylist * successfully bringing together a welcome injection of gothic mystery back into a supernatural romance story. I very much enjoyed reading this book and without a doubt can say that Goodman's Fairwick Chronicles have a lot of potential for future reading * Fantasy Book Review * Incubus is a fabulous mixture of classic Gothic themes, paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Hugely enjoyable and highly recommended, Incubus gets the Fairwick Chronicles off to a great start - leaving this reviewer already looking forward to the next instalment of this series * www.lovevampires.com * Hopelessly addictive...definitely the season's guilty pleasure * Time Out *
