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.From Goodreads
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.

Buy the Book - Thrall (Daughters of Lilith #1) by Jennifer Quintenz
I picked this up for my kindle on one of the free opportunities. Seriously it's a great way to find books you might not have heard of or considered before, definitely recommend having a look.
After reading a lot of vampire type stories recently I decided to have a complete change and head into the demon world. As a YA I was after an easy read to get me into a different form and this was just perfect. I was absolutely taken by the story and the intensity of the story kept me reading on and on. I wasn't able to stop thinking about what was going to be happening next and even read when I was making dinner. Hazard ahoy!
The story takes us into the world of Liliths and the main character Braedyn is at first really hard to like but eventually I came round to liking her. Far too much teenage angst stuff in the first part of the book. The relationship between her and her Dad is endearing but the romantic aspect with Lucas was a bit limp I thought. Fans of the Twilight series will like this one and whilst I probably wouldn't have read this normally I did enjoy it.
The second book is due for release April next year. I think this story has got promise but it's not going to dazzle those who do not like the Twilight genre type of book. Those that do, will love this!
