Desire roused the demon within him...

Wanting to live freely as a human, half-incubus Tristan flees the Wardens. Broke and starving, he accepts Cory's offer of a paid photo shoot, never dreaming he'd find a man with whom he could be aroused and erotic in his own body without having to submit to his demonic half.

Psychically sensitive Cory didn't meet Tristan by accident; he

humm... I'll be gentle explaining why I didn't enjoy this book

Cory, the main character is a slut, a whore, and will became a pimp.

Yes, that's the most gentle way to say what I think.

The Idea
Is very good... and certainly reading the blurb I was so excited about this release that I specific ask for Carina Press to have the pleasure of read and review this book. Half succubus used to please humans, and humans with special ability taking care of them...
It’s rare for me to bother reviewing a book I found disappointing, but this one warranted getting up on the ol’ soapbox for. As a number of previous reviewers point out, the premise is excellent. However, like many people who wade into the precarious waters of ‘moral ambiguity,’ the author completely tripped up on the follow-through.

The trick to writing moral ambiguity successfully, is to portray a character acting with nobility under less than noble circumstances – i.e. objectively admirable c

01/18/13: Revised rating after a couple of years of reading m/m: from 3.5 to 2.

Tristan is a cambion, born from a human mother and a sexual demon, an incubus. After his mother’s death his life is entrusted to a Warden, a human belonging to an order devoted to hunting demons and protecting their half-human offspring. Tristan's Warden ends up betraying his trust and abusing him and Tristan decides to flee from the institution who’s entitled to his care to try to live as a human.

This story was pretty good but not as good as the cover suggests. Tristan is a cambion, half human and half incubus, who desperately wants to have a normal life. The trouble is that without medication and a warden to look after him and fill his sexual needs, his demon side takes control and kills. Tristan escapes his warden and "finds" a young sensitive/psychic in Cory who can somehow keep the demon at bay. The story flows well and the characters are well shaped and likable in their own way.

Okay. This one was. Odd. Still trying to figure out how I feel about it. Narration was very good, but the story, well, the romantic in me was not overly happy with events in the book, or the ending. *sigh*

These characters all seem to be dis-associative and into whatever they do for self-serving purposes only. I may not be understanding the author's intent, but. I don't think I really liked it very much.

I will say I liked the symbolism of the dolphins, fluid and gentle. And the way gentleness w

This one is a tough book to review. I enjoyed the basic concepts - the half-demon, half-human cambion with a Warden protector to help them control their incubi side - but the parts I didn't like overwhelmed that demon storyline.

First off, the blurb didn't give the clue I expected. The blurb reads rough with long, long, long sentences. The prose is better, and I read the story quickly with no stumbling or confusion.

Second issue with the blurb is (view spoiler)
1.5 stars

The blurb for this story was interesting and I was looking forward to reading it unfortunately it turned out to be the best part of the book for me. Of the three main characters, Blanco, the leader of the incubus Wardens, Cory, a young photographer and Tristan, a half human/half incubus runaway only Tristan comes across as a likable guy. I frankly couldn't stand either Blanco or Cory and didn't enjoy the plot line of this story past the first couple of chapters. Although both said they

You know, with the power off at the house for about 16 hours I pulled this book up on my Kindle and read it again. Surprisingly, it was much, much better than I originally thought. I actually have to up my rating considerably.

It's still not the best thing I have ever read, but there is more to it than I originally realized. I think that there were two ideas that I had trouble getting around. One was the awful scene of Tristan's betrayal by Laurence. The other the idea that using any creature, mi
While this book wasn't bad, it wasn't great either. It wasn't one of those that I struggled to get through, but there are some definite negatives. The basic concept of an abused cambion (a half-human, half-incubus) struggling with his demon half and trying to make it on his own is good, but some of the players are morally questionable, creating a teetering balance of enjoyability. It could just be that this book isn't my cup of tea, but read ahead and make your own decision.

I'm a bit torn on how to rate this book. It was a good read, flowed nicely, had interesting characters and plot, but nothing that really stood out to make it awesome and for some reason I wanted it to be awesome. I guess my best description is underwhelmed.

A quick review: Tristan is a cambian (part human part incubus)that has lead a very troubled life. He comes together with the human "Sensitive" Cory under the watchful eye of the mysterious warden Blanco. We learn a lot about the characters an

Review Excerpt:

"Demon's Dance" by Evey Brett is a tastefully touching tale of healing and acceptance amongst the chaos of duality.
More of a 3.75. It was dark, heart breaking and weird in a good way.
