Book Review: The Lost Saint

Title: The Lost Saint
Series: The Dark Divine #2
Author: Bree Despain
Published: December 2010

* Spoiler alert if you haven't read The Dark Divine!*

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She gave her soul to the wolf to save him and lost her beloved mother. When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do. She must become a Hound of Heaven. Desparate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot - a newcomer to town who promises her that he can help her be a hero. But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her relationship with Daniel begins to crumble.

Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace becomes prideful in her new abilities - not realizing that an old enemy has returned and deadly trap is about to be sprung. Readers, raveous for more Grace and Daniel, will be itching to sink their teeth into The Lost Saint.

My Thoughts:

The Lost Saint may be even more dramatic than it's predecessor! Mystery, murder and werewolves are mixed with drama, romance and doubt, into a fast-paced novel with non-stop action.

Grace and Daniel's roles as human and werewolf have been switched in this novel, which obviously caused both jealousy, desperation, problems and huge fights between those two.

As the wolf inside Grace grows, she slowly learns how to use her new abilities; like speed, strength and great hearing. But along with Grace's new super powers comes the voice of the wolf inside her head. A wolf who is encouraging her to fight, murder, take revenge and make bad decisions...

I didn't like The Lost Saint as much as I loved The Dark Divine, mostly because of the way Grace's personality changed under the influence of the wolf. I was mad at her for making such bad decisions and being so mean and suspicious of the people around her!

Rating: 4 of 5
