    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    The Succubus Gift by B.R. Kingsolver is the story of Brenna, a 21 year old girl who has been raised in foster homes since she was 8 years old. She has telepathic abilities and has never met anyone like herself. The story begins the day she does find someone like her who turns out to be a family member. We get to watch Brenna learn about herself, her family, and her gifts as well as make friendships and struggle with relationships and coming to terms with her gifts/abilities.

    I enjoyed the story very much, but felt the succubus part strange. Maybe it is just me and because I have never read a succubus story before. It just felt odd and out of place to me. For some reason I had a hard time feeling anything for the characters. I liked all of them. I just didn't really care about them, and I'm not sure why. I do know that my lack of caring for them made it hard to get through the book, even though the story itself had potential.

    I'm glad that the story had a definite ending with no cliffhanger. I'm not sure I would read another book in the series based on my lack of feeling toward the characters. It wasn't a bad read, just not one I would read again.
