I do love my strong female leads. And Brenna didn't disappoint. She lost her family as a young kid only to one day accidentally find them shortly after finishing college. She didn't let it totally overwhelm her and she was willing for the most part to learn about her family but not give up her freedom. She was strong, funny, sexy, mature, intelligent, and has many Gifts. We don't even get to know ALL of them really yet. It's not everyday a young women finds out she's a succubus and this book mostly focuses on the succubus one. Obviously! Haha. But we do get to learn about a few of her others in the book.
The clan itself is really awesome and so are the people in it. All the clan members are really interesting to learn about and get to know. I really liked them all. People get asked all the time 'If you could have dinner with a fictional character who would it be?' and I would have to seriously think about if I would choose the clan or only 1 other character. That's how much I enjoyed them.
You have a guide to help pronounce the names and she included their meanings too. That was fun to read. There is even a guide at the end of the book that covers the full list of telepathic gifts and their descriptions. Which even by itself is really interesting.
B.R. Kingsolver did an amazing job at creating this world. It's got mystery, action, romance, and of course sex. It is with more then one partner but so far it's one on one. But it does have some scenes where the heat level could have set this book completely on fire and held back here and there just a little bit. Don't mistake me it has PLENTY of naughty with an awesome story. I almost didn't agree to read it because even though the cover is pretty it just didn't draw my curiosity. Charge me I'm guilty! It would have been been a mistake as I Really like this book! Did I mention the moment I finished it I bought book 2?
Book 1 of the Telepathic Clans Saga.
The history of the Clans, called the Sidhe by the Irish, stretches back to antiquity. The Goddess blesses Her people with 25 Telepathic Gifts. In addition to Telepathy, the Gifts include command over Air and Fire, Telekinesis and Teleportation. In over 2,500 years, She has never bestowed more than 15 Gifts on a single person.
Brenna Morgan was orphaned at eight when her parents were killed in a plane crash. Through one foster home after another, she carried the ornate, carved wooden box her mother had left with her, keeping it always a secret. Then one night she stumbles over a man who claims her as family.
Brenna’s life isn’t the same after she discovers her unusual and mysterious heritage. In addition to being a telepath, Brenna learns she has the Succubus Gift.
That’s just the beginning of her problems. Someone is stalking her. Then there’s the tall, dangerous woman who shadows her and hints a Goddess has linked them. And what is she going to do with a handsome, charismatic, womanizing man she knows she should avoid?
Some days a girl just wants to pull the covers over her head and stay in bed -- with a willing young man of course.
Urban Fantasy with a dash of romance. The Succubus Gift is a completely different take on the succubus myth. Beautiful women and hot men in a world with a hidden telepathic subculture
