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.
Warning: The characters in this book are sex-positive feminists.

I wasn’t new to the subject because I read about succubi before, but I have to say that BR Kingsolver presents a total different myth from the one I used to know and it surely is a world full of intriguing talents/gifts to discover. Your attention is divided between the Clans of Telepaths’ conflict and Brenna’s story, where you assist to her change and where you probably find your curiosity to be on the highest level.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have that particular ‘click’ with any of the characters, but what bothered me the most was the rush of the events, especially at the beginning. Something was off and everything was all too immediate that Brenna’s reactions weren’t particularly believable to me. However, it was an interesting read and adult fantasy readers should give it a try.
