An Awesome Addition to the Series

Sacrifice (Daughters of Lilith #3) by Jennifer Quintenz (Secret Tree Press, 2014, 290pp.)

In Incubus, evil incubus Seth succeeded in opening the Seal between the human and Lilitu worlds. Sacrifice begins two weeks later, where we find Braedyn Murphy and the rest of the Guard watching the Seal 24/7. As if things weren’t bad enough, a mysterious new cult has shown up in town, and claimed Lilith as a figurehead for their feminist cause. But are they really a cause for good, or something more sinister?

How would I describe this third installment? In a word: awesome. Seth is a spectacular villain, the kind you love to hate, but also love to read about. Cassie is given a much bigger role when she volunteers to go undercover and spy on the cult, and the interactions between Braedyn and Karayan really adds texture to the latter’s character. Sacrifice has just the right amount of drama and romantic tension to keep the pace flying, with a dreadful climax that will have you glad that there’s a fourth book in the works. Recommended for Ages 16-Up.
