Check out my review on the first book in the series, Thrall.

Expectations

I liked the first book in the Daughter of Lilith series a lot, especially the main-character. I expect this book to pick up the story-line from the ending of Thrall, and continue to unravel the mysteries. I really like that the story is based on mythology, so I'm looking forward to reading one!

Review

Alright, I just finished reading Incubus, like two minutes ago. What a great second installment this is. 
One of the strengths of this book I found to be the character-development.  The main character Braedyn is a strong female, but doesn't always makes the right decision. That happens to all of us right? 

There's a constant battle of good and evil within Braedyn which Jennifer Quintenz describes very realistically. Braedyn struggles to do the right thing and has difficulty finding what's right. 

Lucas is a very well-written character as well. Lucas is such a good guy with a good heart. He want to help and gets very frustrated when he can't. I love that he has so much confidence in Braedyn, even if she's insecure. 
Her two best friends are a bit more in the background then in the first book.
Royal is a great friend and has the tendency to see right trough his friends when something's wrong.  Cassie is also a great side-character. She's still slowly healing from being hurt in the past, which adds a realistic feel to her character.

I also think the writing-style needs to be mentioned here. The beautifully written sentences are just a joy to read. Also love the funny comments in the book, mainly made by Braedyn. An example:
Quote:
"You think we'll be fighting again soon?" Dad sat next to me at the island. He studied his hands, trying to keep his voice light. "It's possible."
"Possible like it's possible we'll go for ice cream today - or possible like it's possible there are aliens living on Mars and we don't know it because they're just really good at hiding?"

The plot twists were amazing!! I really didn't see any of them coming at all. 
I liked that the possibilities made me think about what might happen, but the twists were beyond my possible outcomes. 

I'm really glad I own the third book, because I can't wait  to read it and continue with this series. As a sequel this book deserves my 5 star-rating.

Synopsis

“Welcome to Braedyn Murphy’s life. She’s a typical—if shy—sophomore navigating the slings and arrows of high school life with her two best friends, Royal and Cassie.  Then a new boy, Lucas, moves into the house next door, and Braedyn finds herself falling in love for the first time.

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.”
