But Braedyn’s normal life comes crashing down around her ears when she learns she’s a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons - and that she might play a critical role in an ancient war between the Sons of Adam and the Daughters of Lilith. Turns out the right answers aren’t always clear or easy. And as for “good” and “evil” – it all depends on how you 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.
Ooh, I really liked this one, guys. I was immediately sucked into the world of Braedyn, the daughter of Lilith. It has all the typical elements of a paranormal romance book and the battle between good and evil. The storyline won't surprise you. Average girl suddenly takes on freaky new powers, finds out she isn't who she thought she was her whole life, meets a hot boy that is forbidden, sets out to save the world... See what I mean? Not a new storyline at all. BUT...
This is a solid, well told story. The characters are well developed and full of life. I could picture them in my head and I could feel them. The story was forward moving at all times. It engaged me as a reader and I wanted to keep reading. That is how I know I've got a good book in my hands. :)
Braedyn is your average girl in the beginning but when faced with the knowledge that her whole life has been something other than she believed it to be, she doesn't spend a lot of time wallowing. She trusts in the love she has always known and she figures things out. She is stronger than she thinks but that knowledge comes as she works hard. I liked that. I also liked that Braedyn made mistakes and learned from them. Braedyn has a good heart and she is loyal. She has to struggle against some natural Lilith tendancies and channel her powers to do good but she does it because she believes she can. She is a strong (not just physically) lead character and one I was fully behind as a reader.
I loved the supporting characters and I'm really looking forward to getting to know them even better in the next books. Thrall is the first book in this series. The next two books are already out and available to read so you don't have to wait! Sweet!
