“The Lustre” by Kate Policani.

I won this book through a promotion that Kate was running. If you purchase it you will not be disappointed. The author had me hooked by page four. Her ability to show and not tell will be one
reason I will be passing this book for others to read like I normally do. Just this time I will be keeping the book. The examples in this book one can draw from is priceless.

The book is about a young woman by the name of Angelina who at a young age knows she is different. She has this gift of absorbing pain from others while giving them pleasure in return. She is special among her peers. Each chapter dives into a different POV from the men who come across her path.

And by the way, she is not human.

This is a wonderful book. It is fast paced and can be read relatively quickly. ( )
