Review--The Lost Saint by Bree Despain


Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process.

Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot, a newcomer to town. But as the two grow closer, Grace's relationship with Daniel is put in danger - in more ways than one.

Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her - not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

Bree Despain delivers sizzling romance and thrilling action in the heart-pounding sequel to the The Dark Divine.

Bree Despain's The Lost Saint was an incredible followup to The Dark Divine. Of course it's been so long since I read the last book that I forgotten some of the details and whatnot, but I was soon caught up enough to become immersed into the story.

It's been nearly a year--10 months--since the events of The Dark Divine, Daniel is cured and now it's Grace who is battling her wolf. She trains with Daniel in order to get a handle on her wolf, to be the one in control. But one night things suddenly change between them and Daniel stops training her, not giving her much of a reason. The two become suddenly distant and Grace is at a lost to understand what happened.

Grace is determined to find her brother, Jude as well. He's been gone for 10 months, and she hasn't heard from him since he run off that night. But someone has, April. April and Grace make amends and soon they are both set to find Jude, for Jude had been contacting April. Leaving her anonymous comments on her blog that just sound like Jude, text messages that also resemble things he would say.

The new character on the block is Talbot. He too is like Grace, able to control his wolf from escaping, yet using his powers for good. Sounds a little corny, right? But the story is done well. Grace secretly trains with Talbot and learns how to control her amazing abilities.

But there's something big on the horizon. Something sinister and dark. And it's out to ruin everything Grace holds dear to her. And shocking secrets are soon revealed by the ones she thought she could trust most.

Overall this was a fabulous read! I really fell into the book, being back in Grace's world. All the shocking surprises, were actually pretty shocking. A few things I got an inkling of beforehand, but it wasn't necessarily a bad thing. The ending was really outstanding too. Things come to fore that leave a bit of a cliffhanger, so the wait til March 13, for The Savage Grace is going to be a little difficult. Thankfully I have so much to read still that it shouldn't be a problem!

Overall rating 4/5 stars
