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 Review: This is the kind of book you spend all night reading and taking the next out of work! I loved this book, yelled at it, laughed at stuff, and was ready to jump in. This book reminds me so much of a series I finished a while back. Though this book brought me more feels than the series did.
Okay so Braedyn is only 16, and goes through intense things and is so addicting. There is hotness in this book, and I love every second of it! It’s just page after page of awesome. Now let’s get into the book….
Braedyn and her friends are justdealing with high school and all the things that come with it. The teachers, kids, popular, geeks, work, etc. So Braedyn is at home and is getting new neighbors, where Lucas shows up. This really cute guy that is taking Braedyn’s heart. They have more in common then she thought. He and her both belong to a guard that takes care of evil, or Lilitu if you want. Now that she is getting older, it’s time for her to learn what’s going on and what she can do to help.
So you may have read that there is good and evil happening in the book. Uh it was used really well and then really odd. The good is just what you expected. The the evil…is not exactly what I was expecting. Some evil people don’t even think they are evil. It makes things interesting, since you wouldn’t expect a character to be like that. I was entertained at many point in the book, so no way can anyone get bored when reading this book.
I really really enjoyed this book! I can’t wait to read all the books!
