Review: Thrall (Daughters of Lilith #1) by Jennifer Quintenz

Title: Thrall (Daughters of Lilith #1)
Author: Jennifer Quintenz

Book Description:
Braedyn is a normal girl just trying to survive high school with her two devoted friends, Royal and Cassie. Together they’re doing a pretty good job of shrugging off the slings and arrows cast their way by the popular crowd when a new boy, Lucas, moves into the house next door. Suddenly Braedyn finds herself falling in love for the first time.

But as her sixteenth birthday approaches, Braedyn discovers humankind is at war with the Lilitu, an ancient race of enticing demons that prey on human souls. Her father is a member of the Guard fighting against the Lilitu - and so are the new neighbors, including her crush, Lucas. 

As her world starts to unravel at the seams, Braedyn learns the right answers aren’t always clear or easy. And as for “good” and “evil” – it all depends on how we choose to act.

Inspired by the ancient Mesopotamian myths of Lilith and her offspring, Thrall explores first love, strong friendships, and taking on adult responsibilities against the backdrop of powerful supernatural forces and life-and-death stakes.

My Thoughts:

First of all, I would like to thank Ms. Quintenz for the ebook copy. Now on to my review. *winks*

I have to admit that the blurb didn’t really catch my attention that much (especially the “falling in love for the first time” part. This book was assigned to me for review and although I was a bit skeptical about it, I still went on to read it. And now, I’m glad that I did.

Thrall takes us into a whole new world where beautiful creatures known as Liliths exist. I love how Ms. Quintenz used the idea and weaved her own, unique plot out of it. This is definitely something different from the usual “paranormal creatures” I’ve read in other paranormal novels. This is quite a refreshing novel with its smooth writing, good pacing (although the first parts were a bit of a drag for me), interesting storyline and great characters.

At first I thought Braedyn will be one of those “annoying heroines” but she turned out to be a likeable character as the story progresses. What I most especially love is the father-daughter relationship of Braedyn and her dad. I can really feel how much her dad loves and cares for her. Although Braedyn and Lucas’ relationship is sweet, it didn’t give me any “giddy” feelings at all, so… yeah.

Over all, Thrall was a great and enjoyable read and I recommend it to all paranormal/romance fans.

I give this book 4  jumping whales.


  1. This sounds very interesting. I've heard a tiny bit about the myths about Lilith (I love mythology ;)) and this really caught my attention. It look like it would be a pretty good read.

    1. You should definitely check this one out, and I hope you'll enjoy it as well :D
