Wow! Can I just say, it was truly a joy to read this novel, the third in The Telepathic Clans Saga by BR Kingsolver. Ms. Kingsolver has created a vast and dynamic world, full of beauty and adventure, but also danger and intrigue. It is a world I adore jumping into time and time again. All of the original crazy O’Donnell Clan is back, along with their allies, and a few new ones to get to know. The story moves so incredibly fast I personally found it very difficult to put down. It is a perfect addition to the fabulous Telepathic Clans Saga, and one that will take readers on a grand adventure around the world.
Brenna and Rebecca are back. After several difficult experiences (in the other books), Brenna and Rebecca are just seeking time to enjoy themselves. That time is short lived. When a South American Clan approaches O’Donnell about an alliance, Brenna and Rebecca are right in the middle of it. And when open war is declared against the O’Donnell Clan and their allies, no one is safe. To add to the danger, Rebecca and the heir to the Ecuadorian Vargas Clan have really hit it off. Brenna’s heart has already been captured, but what of Rebecca’s? In the midst of the battle, Rebecca will discover more about herself and her past than she could have ever hoped to know. And as a new O’Donnell, that knowledge will come in very handy in the coming battle. Join Brenna and Rebecca on their journey of self discovery. It is an adventure you will never forget.
The Goddess has plans for Brenna and Rebecca, and the Goddess has a wicked sense of humor.
Rebecca Healy is a true wilder, growing up with no contact or knowledge of other telepaths. Discovered by a Clan member on the streets of San Francisco, she felt like she’d hit the jackpot. Finally, she knew what she was, or at least she thought she did.
When Brenna O’Donnell, long-lost heir of the O’Donnell Clan, and the strongest telepath in history, is returned to her family, she and Rebecca form a tight bond. Brenna has it all, looks, money, power, and men falling all over her.
Rebecca isn’t jealous, but it would be nice to find someone who would really love her and stick around in the morning. She’s intrigued by a handsome South American general, but of course, he has his sights set on Brenna. Carlos de Vargas wants more than love. His Clan has its back to the wall, and they hope for an alliance with O’Donnell. An alliance that would lead to war.
The story began in The Succubus Gift and continued in Succubus Unleashed. In Succubus Rising, questions are answered and new mysteries are revealed.
