(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Although I’m not familiar with this series, not having read the other Telepathic Clans books, I found this to be quite easy to understand. Although I couldn’t see all of the details about the different Gifts the characters had, I thought there was enough explained in the narration and dialogue that I didn’t get confused.
I did like Rhiannon’s character, though I did think that she seemed quite high-powered at times and less so at different points in the storyline. I would have liked to have more details about how the different abilities worked. I wasn’t very clear on why succubus was such an offensive word, though… or why Rhiannon kept using it even knowing it offended the people she was interacting with.
I thought it was interesting to see the way people’s actions affected the colour of their souls. I was intrigued by the fact that it affected Rhiannon’s moral compass. I also found it interesting to learn about the succubi and how they had to recharge by sleeping with men.
I thought there was a lot of tension in this book. The concept of broken dolls kept cropping up and it was interesting to see it as a running theme throughout the plot… even though I thought the references were a bit disrespectful. There was also a lot of intrigue going on… and not a whole lot of nice people in the book.
I liked the fact that Rhiannon did come across as caring quite a lot about the girls who were being taken and used. I also thought it was good to see some of the details about how abilities were passed on… and I liked the opportunity to see how the succubi ‘hunted’.
There were a few things that I found a bit unexpected in this book, but there were others that I felt were a bit harder to follow. This book was quite short, but I think it could have been expanded… and I would have liked to see a lot more details about characters and their relationships to each other.
In the future, I’d be interested in reading the other books in this series and getting to know more about the world and the characters.
