Buzzy Reviewer
A horror novel that had plot elements I've never seen before. I've been reading horror fiction since the age of nine so you can imagine that makes Incubus very unique. There are unusual beings to be found in the course of this story. They exist in mythology and may have been talked of in other horror novels but I cannot remember. There also exist unusual explanations for more common horror mythology. I truly enjoyed discovering this book right along with the lead character. 4 STARS

Here is a story which is soon careening along like a jeep on a mountain trail. There are all kinds of twists and turns, the truth is well buried in the jungle, and it is a terrific ride to the end. Ms. Dobson handles her characters carefully, keeping them from being simple cut outs. I enjoyed the book greatly and would recommend it to others. Incubus gets four croaks from this frog! Recommended!

If horror is your interest--and if snakes don't weird you out--then grab this eBook. It is thrills, chills, and action all tied up in a tidy plot. The protagonist is well developed--especially for a tale told in first person--and the background has been thoroughly researched. The research is used to enhance the book, not overpower it. All in all, it is an excellent read--one that still has me carefully checking my surroundings for wiggly creatures that want my heart. Shudder. Highly Recommended!
