Taking place shortly after Incubus Dreams Anita finds herself called out of town to help out a co-worker and raise the dead. Because of her growing needs with the Ardeur one of her lovers has to accompany her, and that job falls to Micah, the one lover I could stand to hear less about.
Sex is less of a plot point, and more point of the story here, and all the talk about his size made the few pages seem impossibly long. So much emphasis is really not needed, I get it, the small guy is huge in the pants, but they have been together for a year and this is suddenly an issue seems a little reaching. His history is also greatly explored, but it wasn’t great enough to have its own book, it wasn’t even good enough for this tiny novella.
Micah is not only short in pages, its short in plot. For new readers, it’s a great as a standalone book and a nice introduction into Anita’s world, but for current readers its pretty much a throw away novel. Compared to previous novels is completely subpar. All in all the book is pretty boring, with little payoff in the end, and none of the previous plot points even remotely touched.
