Book two in the series was...disappointing.

Braedyn was stubborn, hard-headed, disloyal and a whole slew of other adjectives that really annoyed me. In fact, I'm highly disappointed in Lucas's frame of mind at the end of the book. I thought Braedyn was also completely, and more frustratingly, willfully oblivious to things.

Fortunately, there were a few interesting developments in this book, so I do still think reading #3 is worth it - I'm hoping so, anyway.

The only inconsistency/oversight I found

It has been more than a year since I first read Incubus. Now that I also have Sacrifice and Guardian, I decided to reread the first two books as well.

I must admit, I was not as happy-go-lucky as the first time I read it. But it does not mean it was not a good experience the second time around.

So how was reading it the second time different?

Which book did I like better? I definitely like Thrall better. It was a bit better rounded and I enjoyed some characters, Braedyn mainly, more. Incubu

Jennifer Quintenz why do you do this to me? Sleep is good for people, I speak from experience. But somehow your works always have me telling off sleep until I am ready to collapse. It was not a good idea to go to bed 4.30 AM, when I had wake up at 7AM…

So after reading to the early hours of the morning I have now finished “Incubus”. I admit it might not have been nice of me to wake up my visiting sister at 4AM with a loud shout of: “I knew it! I didn’t know it, but damn it, I knew it.” For people

So since the first book blew me away, I knew I had to read the sequel. At first, the story seems fine. Then I hit the last few chapters.

Mind Blown!

Plot: If you have not read the first book, I strongly suggest you do. This story carries over with what happened in the first book. It’s action packed, lots of great plot twists and turns. Nothing is ever boring nor confusing. I fell right back into the story as if I never left. It’s just really awesome.

Love: This love is soo complicated. And no, it h

One of the best books I have ever read!

When I started reading this book I couldn't stop reading it. I read this book the whole day. :D It was fun to read. It have everything in it, romance, drama, mystery, fantasy, and it will be a great book for teens. I love the character-most of them. If I would have to pick my favorite character it would maybe Lucas. I don't know. I love the character and I can't choose one. :D

Incubus was an amazing book and I enjoyed every chapter, page and word of it. After I read the first book of the series Daughters of lilith, I didn’t think that the second could be any better. It was! It really was.

The plot was good, and the events that take place are really unexpected. I think it was great, because I was shocked and really just wanted to die at the same time. The thing I love about the work of Jennifer Quintenz is that she manages to make the characters so real that you find yo

Book two opens around nine months after the events of book one came to a close; an immediate sense of dejavu being set off by the mentioning of winter solstice. Despite the instinctual ways in which Braedyn and Lucas stood in the face of danger and ran to the fight instead of from it, their inclinations to protect the innocent and those they love, have left their mark; most typically in the dreams that plague them. Lucky for Lucas, and Braedyn too, she has a power over the dreamscape, not that t ...more

If you haven't yet read book one of this series, Thrall (Daughters of Lilith), STOP HERE and go read that book first. This series builds each book upon the foundation of the prior book, which means that this review contains spoilers for the first book in the series.

Incubus is the exciting sequel to Thrall (Duaghters of Lillith #1) and carried on just where we left off.
Following the events of Thrall, Braedyn is given a glimmer of hope by an angel, if she can keep herself from doing wrong, there is a chance she can be made human. This is great news for Braedyn and also for her loved ones, giving hope that she can be with Lucas properly, never guarding her love for him, being able to kiss him,

I read Thrall the first book in the Daughters of Lilith Series some time ago and I remember thinking it was pretty good, so I readily agreed to read the second in the series. I wasn't disappointed, in fact, I was delighted to find a (for me) rare 5 star read. Incubus has everything needed to make a top book - strong, well-drawn characters with real relationships and motivations that tug at our heart-stings; a unique concept; immediate and engaging writing, and a riveting plot with an unexpected ...more

I liked this one a bit less than the first one. Here's why:

1. When someone is an ally, they deserve to be treated as an ally.

The Guard still treats Braedyn as a question mark, which is laughable given the events of the first book. She's done everything for them, given up everything for them. For them to ask more is ludicrous. A freaking Angel has given his stamp of approval? What more do you judgmental asshats need?

2. When you don't share info with your team, expect them to make mistakes. See po

Ms. Quintenz does a fairly good job reminding us where the first book left off but the recaps were brief and my memory is not as sharp as it used to be, so I floundered around a bit. However it didn't take too long to regain my footing.

I just have one small complaint so I will get it out of the way now before I get to the good stuff. This is about a style choice the author made when she chose to use digits instead of writing out numbers. These numbers referred to seconds, minutes, hours, months,

Visit my blog post about this review:

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!

Alright, I just finished reading Incubus, like two minutes ago. What a great second installment this is.

Despite thinking that Thrall was a bit meh, I really enjoyed Incubus,it was a definite improvement on the first book. Whereas Thrall set the scene, Incubus is where all the action and the mystery happens. I also started to really like the characters and the romance, which I didn't feel so keen on here. The best thing about this book was that it kept me guessing, since I thought Thrall was pretty predictable. We know the bad guy is an incubus, but we have no idea what powers an incubus could have ...more

Review: Incubus (Daughters of Lilith #2) by Jennifer Quintenz Uh, Oh, Things are starting to get real for Braedyn. Coming out of Thrall there was a lot of sky high ups, like saving the day but there were a lot of unanswered questions to be answered and Incubus just made things a lot more complicated. Honestly I mean complicated in the best sense because the world expanded by leaps and bounds here. We find out there is a male version of succubus called incubus and that not much is known about him ...more

I was really confused with the sudden turn of events in here. One moment I knew who the enemies are, but then, there are those who are not what you think they were. It was a little bit frustrating for me, because with the first 10 chapters, I was really a little bit bored. I was actually afraid that I won't be able to finish this book, but after the 12th chapter, the story started to kick-up. The story started to be way too interesting to put down. And I just realized I was able to finish it no ...more

Since book 1 had me reeled in, I immediately started this book. You really do need to read book 1 before reading this so you can get the feel for the entire story. Plus this book begins where the last one left off, so that is always great for the reader to be literally sucked into the world of the Author.

Once again one of the underlying factors in this book is love. Again the love between the father and daughter is beautiful. The love between the two teens has likewise grown and matured. Braedyn

Things are gettin’ demon-y up in here. Braedyn and her assorted crew are back and are getting ready to prepare for the big showdown, but there’s a pesky incubus in the way.

This story, much like the first one, contains contemporary issues with a lot of paranormal aspects thrown in. Does that make sense? I’ll explain. Braedyn is trying to survive high school, and a bully, who we’ll get to later, a boyfriend, old and new friends, and a creepy teacher. Then you throw in her Lilitu background and th

First, I will start by saying I was on goodreads looking at the "giveaways" a couple of months or so ago. I have found in the past year, it is one of the best places to look for new books to read.I came across "Incubus" ,I saw it was the second in its series and decided to check out the first book and see what it was about. I became interested enough to where I purchased in the next 10 minutes and began reading.
If you love books within this genre read this series.(Angels,Demons,tales of Lilith)

We are back with Braedyn and the impending war with the Lillitu. She knows something big is planned and that she is an essential tool in the upcoming battle, but no one is quite sure exactly what is going to happen. Then word gets out that an Incubus is in town, this causes major panic in the guard, not only are Incubus very rare but also very dangerous. They sort of work a

Jennifer Quintenz reminded me in Incubus why exactly I loved the first book in this series so much.

Puerto Escondido is again threatened by evil, this time the town is terrorized by an Incubus. No one has heard of one in centuries, the Guard doesn’t know who they can trust anymore. On top of this threat they still have to prepare for the upcoming battle with the Lilitu.

Braedyn has the hardest time of all she’s an official part of the guard, but there are s

I was given this book free in exchange for an Honest review, so here goes.

I am a picky but voracious reader, when I find something I'm interested by I envelope it. This character Braedyn has captured me. I am fascinated by her day to day struggle to be a normal kid under anything but normal circumstances. I am also fascinated by her struggle to be the human her dad raised her to be instead of the deom she was bor to be. I have tried recently through a few free book email rings & websites to find
I received a copy of this from the author in return for an honest review.

Because of my lovely new schedule, I have had very little time to read lately. I was only 50% through this book at the beginning of this weekend. Part of it was because it's been a while since I read the first book, and I forgot about what happened. It's kinda hard to get into the action when that happens. Luckily, at least, the story picks up months after the last book.

I didn't really like this one as much as I liked the l
