The non-stop sequel to The Dark Divine delivers an even hotter romance and more thrilling action than Bree Despain's first novel. 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.
I loved this book! It was so awesome. Much better than The Dark Divine!! The plot was quick, intriguing and fun to read. It's the total package.
We start off I think about 8 months after the events in The Dark Divine. Grace is being trained by Daniel, to no avail. She is no closer to getting her powers to work on her will than she was a month ago. School is normal, her ex best friend is not talking to her, and her brother vanished. Now her mother walks around the house as if she were one of the living dead and her father is on a wild goose chase half the time looking for Jude. Things are definitely not right in the Divine household. Give it a few weeks and things will start getting even weirder when a man named Gabriel pays a visit and Daniel starts acting all sorts of strange.
When I started this book I didn't remember half of The Dark Divine. Seriously, I was half lost (hehe I was kind of like the lost saint) but as I read this book I started remembering the bits and pieces of the previous book. I will not go into so much details about this novel (I don't want to spoil it) but I just gotta say that it was great. There was a lot of ass kicking performed by no other than Grace! Her relationship with Daniel was tested by secrets and another man who comes into Grace's life called Talbot. This book though is definitely more plot driven, action packed, and less romancy (though there is romance). It didn't make me swoon, but it did make go to "Hell yeah!"
Most of you have read it by now and know what I'm talking about. But for those of you who haven't I gotta say you have to. I was a little nervous going into the book because I didn't know how the end result was going to go like, but it was so worth it. I would read it for a second time. And maybe a third time... It was just that good.
