By M. Leigh Marriott
In the underground, darkness is alive. Fae exist! Creatures encompassing our deadliest nightmares, and our deepest daydreams, seek to feed on us, to subjugate us for their own, nefarious purposes. Sol and Sandford are brothers with very different viewpoints on humanity. They are incubi: a Fae that feeds on emotion while we sleep. Sounds pretty cut and dry right? Well, what do you think would happen when a Fae tries to stray away from the night, from the intoxication of human fear? You are about to find out.
M. Leigh Marriott embraces the seedier side of fiction with a unique look into the world of vampires, succubi, fairies and more. I enjoyed the poetry of Dark to Dust. It felt as if Edgar Allen Poe had briefly stepped into the mainstream. The characters, Sol and Sandy, were especially likable; however, I would have enjoyed seeing a wider variety of Fae, and delving a little deeper into the brothers story. I felt the pacing was off, at times. Still, Dark to Dust managed to get back on track and keep me hooked.
I highly recommend this book and I hope to see more stories set in this universe.
The night mingles with golden joy...
