I really like Dunbar's Imp series so I bought this book way back when it first came out. Only took me a whole year to finish... I'm giving it three stars but I rounded up from 2.5... I really HATED the narrator for the audio version and eventually had to switch to kindle.
Obnoxious narrator or not, I found Amber to be a pretty frustrating character. She doesn't read like a 21 yr old (what 21 yr old says "I hadn't the foggiest idea"?). She thinks and acts like she's human and stubbornly denies reality. She constantly comes off as a TSTL Mary Sue.
At one point Amber makes a HUGE deal about how Irix is "amoral" for wanting to help her friend get an internship (the nerve of him!). I guess this is supposed to show us that she has "morals" blah blah blah but I didn't feel like her character was very consistent (aside from being consistently obnoxious). She claims total ignorance in the ways of demons yet the author slips up a lot and has her telling the reader that demons always do this and demons always do that. She doesn't seem to find the idea of having sex with icky strangers in a bar bathroom at all distasteful yet she finds the idea that she's sucking up people's sexual energy (and possibly tying them to her) so abhorrent that she just flat out refuses to ever have sex (regardless, she seems to spend the entire book acting like she's trying to get laid which frankly, gets boring fast). Her refusal to "recharge" makes her seem like a spoiled brat, as it means she has to leech off Irix, which puts them in constant danger, yet she seems to make no real effort to figure out how to "recharge" without hurting people. Why can't she just go to a strip club or something and suck up the lust there so she can be done with it already?
I also wasn't digging how Amber was supposed to be so helpless! She's like "i would be no use in a fight because all I had was lightening" (as if shooting electricity is a totally useless power?). And it didn't make a whole lot of sense to me that Amber, the 21 yr old college coed suddenly became the representative of the New Orleans supe community despite the fact that she's not even from NO herself.
Irix mostly seemed like a series of physical descriptions, and I was left feeling like I'd missed something because Amber is basically already in love with him by the time the book begins (sucked cause I was actually looking forward to seeing them meet). He doesn't seem to have much of a personality, instead, the author just tells us that he's a "playboy" and that Amber is in love with him, but I couldn't see why either of them liked each other. Still, I liked the events at the end of the book and will probably continue to read this series due to the fact that it's loosely connected to the Imp series.
What's the risk? Getting hooked! Yep, I've bought into yet another of her series. I don't even remember it all but I know much of it stems from the Imp Series so if you haven't started, start there and then read ALL of the books in Imp and everything related.
Oh, the story line? Nope, you won't get that from me. Buy the book or download a sample and then you'll buy the book... maybe. If you've read the background books, you will buy this one. Me? I've already got Half Breed #2.
Amber is half Succubus and half Fae. The Fae have put out a contract on her life. No halves allowed.
Amber was raised by a human family and until her teens, had no idea she was more than human. Her Fae half gets her out of serious scrapes and aides her in regenerating dying swamps in NOLA. She does not like her Succubus half. She detests sucking the males for their sexual energy laving them either dead or forever thinking only of her when they have sex with another woman.
Irix is sent to educate her on all things succubi. She' rather just go into a sleazy frat house or bar where sex is occurring and get her feeding that way. She is truly starving that side of herself. Irix has given her 24 hours to have sex with someone. She actually tries, but you'll have to find out what happens. Irix understands and gives her another 24 hours or he will take care of her himself.
Amber has a giant crush on Irix and would love that, but no, just not going to happen, she would want him all the time, like permanently, and he only does one-nighters.
She finds herself in the company of some good witches and a small group of vampires. The vampires are not evil in this story, but kinda pathetic. Although they do help Amanda and her witch friends.
An altogether fun story and I will try to find the next story in the group, hopefully the one where Irix and Amber get together. I gave this one 5 fun to read stars!
