Goddess Fish Presents The Incubus Saga Tour by Amanda Meuwissen






Amanda will be awarding a digital copy of both Incubus and Changeling to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Follow the tour and comment; the more you comment, the better your chances of winning. The tour dates can be found here: 






BLURB:

INCUBUS:  Nathan only ever wanted a normal life, but for him, life, family, and love are anything but normal.

On the other side of the Veil, dark and light fae exist outside the knowledge of most humans. Nathan Grier was born human, but his twin brother Jim is a changeling. On the run since they were children, time for both of them is running out. Turning to fae hunter Sasha Kelly for help, Nathan must soon face his growing feelings for the other man while trying to save himself and his brother from a fate worse than death.












CHANGELING:  Nathan Grier’s dark fae bounty looms overhead. As he faces the very real threat of becoming a slave to the bounty’s owner, his brother Jim uses his changeling abilities more and more trying to save him. Every changeling throughout history turns evil once their powers manifest, meaning time may be running out for both of them as Jim nears True Awakening.

Fae hunter and incubus, Sasha Kelly, is prophesized to save Nathan, but while Nathan has embraced his feelings for the other man, he fears their time together will be cut short—either from his impending fate…or Jim’s.

EXCERPTS:


Changeling 

Nathan Grier was exhausted, his body drained entirely of energy from his days spent recovering from an unfortunate shotgun blast to the chest. Sleep was a welcome friend as of late—well, some of the time. A part of Nathan feared the drooping of his eyes and what might be waiting for him in the darkness. But he needed rest. Craved it. The comfort and warmth of the bed beneath him. The quiet of a room that wasn’t in the hospital. The gentle touch of Sasha’s fingers trailing up his thigh.

Nathan sighed. His thoughts were vague, hazy. He was definitely in a bed, in a quiet room, but he wasn’t surrounded by the comfort of covers; he was lying naked on top of them, displayed for Sasha to see. Nathan knew the hand caressing up his side belonged to Sasha Kelly—of course it did. He knew the soft skin of the incubus too well after their night together to imagine it was anyone else.


It had been a week since their run-in with Gabriel, the sealgaire who had murdered Nathan’s parents—and who had turned out, in the end, to be family. Nathan hadn't told his brother, Jim, about Gabriel being their uncle, and he hoped he never had to.



Incubus Excerpt:

Nathan Grier hit the ground hard on his hands and knees, gasping for breath. Traveling through the Veil with Jim had always been so effortless. Nathan had forgotten how much his brother’s presence protected him. Without Jim, even a brief trip just hurt everywhere.
          
Pushing up from the ground and sitting back on his heels, Nathan gulped down air to steady his pulse. He looked around quickly, taking in the dark landscape. It was still night but there was light steadily growing on the horizon.
          
He did not have much time. 
          
Nathan struggled to his feet and took a few pained steps forward to the edge of the cliff. Below was St. Brides Bay, empty of divers and kayaks at this early hour. Normally, Nathan would be able to clearly see the lush green hills, steep drop-offs, and spattering of flowers that had not yet died with the growing autumn cold, but for now the world was covered in darkness.

He pulled his jacket more tightly around him, swallowing hard as he peered down the long expanse to the beach below. The wind was whipping harshly through his short black hair as if it desired nothing more than to see him blown right over the edge.
          
Turning back to the Veil doorway he had come from, Nathan saw that it was no longer visible, though he knew it was still there. He had crossed the ocean in search of a Power Point strong enough to summon a Messenger. The doorway was where the Messenger would appear.

The Manic Monday REVIEW
5 stars on both books!




Incubus (The Incubus Saga, #1)

Holy cow. I’m not going to go into this too much because I don’t want to give stuff away. Just let me say holy cow. I’m a fan of scifi and fantasy for a reason: the world building. Let me tell you now the world building is exceptional. Then throw in fae myths and legends, and I’m good to go. Oh, don’t forget twists and turns!

Too many times stories in the genre can turn into info dumps, but thank God that didn’t happen. Nathan and Jim Grier face danger over and over. They are twins, but you see, there is a twist. Remember the twist thing I mentioned, lol? Nathan is human and Jim is a changeling. As Jim comes into his powers, he’s in danger. Nathan is willing to do anything to save his brother. Of course they have to be careful who they trust, and the action is non-stop.

Seriously, you can’t go wrong with this book.



Changeling (The Incubus Saga #2)

OMG, just buy the book, lol. If you liked book #1, you’ll love book #2. In this, we see the characters grow closer. We are drawn deeper into the world of fae and monsters the author created. Desires are realized and barriers are broken. Again, I’m not going to go into this too much because I don’t want to spoil the plot. And what a plot.


Oh, there is a book #3 lol! ;) And ohhhh... those are some of the coolest covers I've seen in a while. I loved these, can you tell?

  1. First of all, thank you so much for hosting the first stop on my Goddess Fish Promotions tour. It's so great to be here. And I am just thrilled to discover you enjoyed both books so much. World building in a way that doesn't mean page after page of exposition means so much to me, and I am thankful to see that came through and that you were sucked into the story in a satisfying way. I hope when book 3 - Sidhe - comes out next year, you'll be interested in continuing the series.

    I encourage some of you great readers out there to consider giving these titles a chance! And thanks again to Decadent Delights for letting me stop by!

    1. I absolutely did love the books lol. I write M/M scifi and paranormal. When I find books that cover the topic as well as yours, it makes my day! :)

    2. Same here! Oh, I love reading all sorts of things, and have read absolutely everything on BigWorldNetwork.com where I post The Incubus Saga serialized before the books come out. But finding more M/M sci-fi/paranormal romance makes my day too. I'll have to check some of your work out as well now that I've had the pleasure of stopping here. :-)

    1. Thanks so much! In this case, it's the opening paragraphs from both books, so I hope that if you can get hooked from there, you'll be eager to try the rest. :-)
