I even enjoyed the religious aspect although I felt like it was being shoved down my throat a few times.
The Dark Divine
Unless you really, really mean to read it. The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, as her actions stir resentment in Jude and drive him to embrace the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night.
But he was wrong. I have the second book, but I am not sure if I will read it. Jul 20, Sab H. Jun 18, Kristi rated it really liked it Shelves: That generally breeds all manner of conflict, yet all is fine?
YA fans who are squicked out by religion should be forewarned. Won’t say why, but his ending was sad, though he did manage to prove himself. There are major sparks flying between Daniel and Grace. tne
In retrospect, it was a good thing because the sequel has already been released! The cover and the blurb don’t give away much of the story, so readers might feel like they are flying blind at first, but gratefully the story gets really interesting really quickly!
Bree Despain took a traditional stance with werewolves, but added a twist. Also the heavily religious and smug moral self-righteousness tone to this book was just jarring and annoying. I just found him extremely irritating. After all, diivine very important information had been withheld from Grace, namely, what did Daniel do to make him persona non grata in her family?
I will probably start it and see how it goes. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon.
Grace angsts constantly about how some family drama makes him “forbidden” to her. In a moment of karmic perfection, Bree received the offer to purchase The Dark Divine on the 6th anniversary of the tye accident that put her back on the path to becoming an author. I was really looking forward to this book, and although it did not disappoint me, it also wasn’t quite what I’d expected.
Why now, respain all this time?
The Dark Divine (The Dark Divine, #1) by Bree Despain
It’s old fashioned but not cloying — religious, yes, but not preachy, and because these elements were so surprising, I enjoyed the plot surprises, too. Grace can’t fight the pull and attraction she’s always had for Daniel and since he’s returned it’s that much more intense.
Brainless Mary Sue meets a hot jerk “bad boy” who seduces her while all the while I am throwing up red flags for potential sexual harassment and stalking behaviorall told in a boring, mind-shredding narrative with a few grating side characters like a “best friend” and a cheesy villain thrown in at the end that anyone could have seen from a mile away.
Pete is the character I really felt bad for. When another father and mother in the story subject their child to terrifying abuse and abandonment? I might even read the next in the series yes its a part of a series.
Apr 14, Annalisa rated it liked it Recommends it for: Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. Despain’s telling us that you don’t have to make your characters angry, bitter, cussing Goth kids to tell a story about pain, and redemption, that teenagers and adults can relate to.
Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened divibe night Daniel Kalbi disappeared–the night she found sfries brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in his own blood–but she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night held. We have a kind of unusual divinf between a sister, Grace, who loves her brother J Got this as an advance review copy when I was in Philadelphia last month.
