E-copy from the author for my honest review


All Kyle Prideaux wants is a normal life.

But with a serial killer in town, murdering women the same way her mother died seven years ago, and a silent stalker watching her during the day and invading her dreams at night, normal is impossible.

After she's attacked at work one night, Kyle wakes in the hospital to discover things of nightmares exist and walk among us every day.

And she's the only one who can stop them.

My Review

This book is the first part of a series by Rachel Bateman, and it is set up like a television series, made up of several 'episodes' that are novella length, and would be approximated to 20 minute tv episodes. And so, as with a tv series, you only see/read a fraction of the whole story. Just enough to pique your interest, but not enough to completely satisfy you.

This won't be a very long review as Incubus is just a very small part of a greater whole. The  main character is Kyle who is a teenage girl who keeps having strange dreams about her mother's murder. I thought Kyle was a cool character but her name kept throwing me off as I kept expecting her to suddenly morph into a guy. I have known several Kyle's, but none of them have been women. Apart from that, this book was quite good.

I really liked the murder mystery part of this book as I grew up watching and reading Agatha Christie and I still really enjoy a good murder! (Err.. not a real one of course!)

This first installment gives us a brief look at a terrible string of serial killings, with no seeming cause and things start to get interesting when the paranormal elements of this book come into play.

3.5/5 Whales
