The Succubus Gift (The Telepathic Clans #1) - B.R. Kingsolver
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.
I was offered to review this for the author.
When I started reading this, it set me back to when I read [author:Richelle Mead|137902]'s Succubus series. I loved the characters. The strength of Brenna and the fun but serious Rebecca. I have cried and laughed at some of the antics of the characters. It's been really nice getting to know Brenna. I loved the grandfather Seamus, Aunt Callie. Collin is gorgeous and so into Brenna and the way Brenna was introduced to her Gifts was sometimes complicated, but made me turn each page. I even took on the trips when Brenna was going all over the place.
My only question I have 'Is Brenna and Rebecca long lost sisters?' So I can't wait til I can get the next installment as I have to know where they are going next.
