“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.”
Before you even start, this review. Put down anything you are doing and go read Thrall. It’s AMAZING!
BREATHTAKING! It’s makes you want to fall to your knees and beg for more. Yes, I want more. And I want it now.
Now, what hooked me into this book is that the plot is holy freaking intense! I mean, right from the start, I am enthralled till the end. Each chapter the reader faces more action, more secrets and much more hottness! At some points, I couldn’t take it anymore. I was fighting against myself to hurry up and finish the book cause I was dying to know how it was going to end. And I figthing myself cause I didn’t want to finish it. Cause I knew the minute I be done, it wouldn’t be enough.
The characters also add some awesome elements to the story. Along with the plot, we have characters that are kept out of the loop. I LOVE this! Characters that hold secrets about themselves from others, specifically when it can jeopardize a relationship makes my heart race.
The love interest as you can tell is one that I want to bloom but faces many trials. This relationship I know can be strong as long as they are strong together. Their love is fierce in the beginning, but UGH, it does make my heart break some. Believe me when I say that you will be so invested in these characters, you feel every waking emotion.
Thrall is a fab beginning to an ultimate legacy! With a thrilling beginning, I can’t imagine what the second book will be like. It raises you up yet brings you down. It’s makes your heart pound yet stop at the igniting love it sparks. Thrall accelerates further into the heart of things, bringing the reader with it. Engaging and smart, Thrall leaves you speechless!
I give it 5 BITES!
