The Succubus Gift (The Telepathic Clans, #1)The Succubus Gift by B.R. Kingsolver

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book Summary:

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.

My Review:

***I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I love how the Author creates a world where "gifts" exist, the abilities are all wonderful even though some of them are frightening...unlike the Vampires and Werewolves, people with gifts doesn't need to drink blood or do anything to maintain their gifts..which is so kick-ass and hassle-free. I love Vampire and Werewolves stories but this is pretty refreshing for me.

I love the idea of having a succubus heroine, so I totally expected some sexy scenes being a part of it, I was actually excited lols..but even though I'm cool with the idea of a succubus needing to have sex "a lot", having a lot of sex with different guys (too many different guys) didn't go well for me or maybe I'm just a little too conservative ><.

All in all, I can say that I liked the world building and the idea of the gifts but I wasn't able to connect with the characters.
