Just when Braedyn Murphy thought she understood the danger descending on her little town of Puerto Escondido, a new threat arrives. A cult devoted to Lilith has taken up residence in town, led by a charismatic old woman with more than one secret. When Cassie gets tangled up in the mystery, Braedyn realize her two worlds are colliding. But if she's going to stop Lilith and her Daughters from reclaiming this earth, Braedyn might not be able to protect her friends.

As her duties to the Guard become more difficult, Braedyn turns to Lucas for Solace. They begin to wonder if now is the time to claim their one night together - knowing that one night is all they may ever have.

Darker forces have their own plan for Braedyn and the Guard. No one ever told Braedyn this battle would be easy - but how much can one girl be asked to sacrifice in order to save the world?

Sacrifice, the third book in the Daughters of Lilith series is as good as the other. I first fell in love with this series when I read the first book. Quintenz knows how to caption the attention of her readers.  Book after book she keeps surprising you with all the plot twists she has in stall for your.

This book is perfect for me, it’s a great love story, there are some kick-ass fight scenes and there is still some normality added to it. Everything is relevant in this book, nothing is there just to fill up the pages in between. Throughout the books everything adds up and together it makes an awesome plot.

I can never express enough how great Braedyn is, I really like her as a character. She has some insecurities, like every teenager, but she’s willing to step up and fight for what she wants. It’s easy to relate to her, she has to make some tough choices throughout the book. And clearly we will never be in the same situation but you can easily make the comparison with you own life.
Royal’s and Cassie’s part in this book was bigger again, I missed them a bit during the previous book. I loved to see how they were a part of the fight against the Lilith, especially Cassie.

There were some heart wrenching moments in this book.  So much did happen that I had never expected. And I can’t imagine how it will affect the characters and the storyline of future books.

Sacrifice is a unique fantasy book. It’s different than a lot of books I have read so far and I love it. The world of the Lilith captures your attention and it won’t let you go until the ending. I hope that more books will come, I believe there will, and hopefully we won’t have to wait too long. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves YA urban fantasy.
