*[Blog Tour Review] The Succubus Gift (The Telepathic Clans #1) by B.R. Kingslover


The Succubus Gift (The Telepathic Clans, #1)
 
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.

I was so excited when the blog tour invitation for this book turned up in my inbox because I had actually been wanting to read it for a while before that and thankfully this one lived up to my expectations.
 
I haven't read any novels with a succubus as a main character so I really enjoyed that Brenna was my first succubus/telepathic character and you know what I liked her a lot. I loved that even though she was a little closed off at first that she was able to open up later on in the novel especially after learning who and what she is.
 
This book had everything that I look for in a paranormal romance. There was mystery, intrigue and lots of sizzling romance between the characters. I really enjoyed the story line that this book offered and I gobbled it up. I honestly couldn't get enough of Brenna's story because she was really smart and although fate dealt her a tricky hand she was still kick ass in her own unique way.
 
What I really appreciated though was the amount of humour B.R. Kingslover added into her novel. I hate reading paranormal romances that are far too serious so I'm very glad that the author decided to infuse the story line as well as the characters with her sense of humour because it worked out quite well in the end.
 
My only wish is that the author hadn't rushed the beginning as much but other than that there are no complaints from this blogger. B.R. Kingslover offered up a great read in her novel The Succubus Gift and I am very much looking forward to her next novel in the Telepathic Clans Saga. Hopefully I can get a copy of book 2 soon.
 
I would recommend this novel to fans of Urban Fantasy and/or Paranormal Romance novels  because there are things in the novel that will appease the appetites for both types of readers. Plus with the holidays coming up this would make a wonderful addition to some one's kindle to spice up their reading life!
 
*I received a complementary copy of this book in exchange for my FREE and HONEST review.
Really Liked it!

About the Author:
 
I write books combining Adult Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, and Science Fiction. I believe in fiction as an escape, with devastatingly beautiful women and incredibly sexy men.

In my books, you will find characters with psychic abilities, such as telekinesis and telepathy, and a completely different view of a succubus than you've ever encountered before.

I made silver and turquoise jewelry for almost a decade, ended up in nursing school, then took a master's in business. Along the way I worked in construction, as a newspaper editor, and somehow found a career working with computers.

I love the outdoors, especially the Rocky Mountains. I've skied since high school, with one broken leg and one torn ACL to show for it. I've hiked and camped all my life. I love to travel, though I haven't done enough of it. I've seen a lot of Russia and Mexico, not enough of England. Amsterdam is amazing, and the Romanian Alps are breathtaking. Lake Tahoe is a favorite, and someday I'd like to see Banff.

I have a very significant other, two cats and two Basset Hounds. I'm currently living in Baltimore, nine blocks from the harbor, but still own a home in New Mexico that I see too infrequently.
