All Grace Divine meant was blundering, meddling, disappointment. Estaba loca, literalmente loca por leer esta novela.

I’m usually a sucker for YA novels–in my opinion, the standards for YA are much higher than for adult, so you’re more likely to get a readable story. Now, for the reason I won’t say, Jude has an excuse for acting out of character, but EVEN considering said reason, he still acted like a jerk. There’s something about him that Grace can’t fight. The second half of the book kind of fell apart until the climax. On to my thoughts. I have no idea why anyone would publish a book entirely in bold, but I hope this is the first and last time they do so.

The Dark Divine

As Grace gets closer to Daniel, her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. The twist wasn’t surprising either.

Grace can’t civine the pull and attraction she’s always had for Daniel and since he’s returned it’s that much more tthe. Apr 16, Amelia, the pragmatic idealist rated it really liked it Shelves: She’d known him almost forever, but then he disappeared–and now he’s back. A lady is found dead with her throat ripped open.

Recommended to Annalisa by: Grace finds her brother bloody on their front porch one night and the next day their childhood friend Daniel, disappears.

Grace and her family, though, are realistically drawn as having darj and trying to live their lives according to Christian values, but finding it extremely difficult at times.

The climax was good, and I like said surprised me, but I wanted more going into it. Oh no, what we get instead is a whole book about Grace reunited with a childhood friend and crush – and how they plumment into this instantaneous, vapid kind of romance which is masquerading as this beautiful, intense, deep and doomed ‘true love’.

I like the change of having him be both new and old. I had a box dkvine tissues next to my chair and used them often! I am so thankful this was a library book and I didn’t spend any This is such a cheap rip-off of the Twilight series. Jude is a really interesting character, too. And I wanted to know more about Daniel and what it was he wanted to tell her.

The Dark Divine (The Dark Divine, #1) by Bree Despain

There are so many unanswered questions. The second she found out what Daniel had done, she turned her back on him and told him to leave for good–not because she wanted to, but because she felt like she HAD to, because she owed it to the stupid, annoying Jude, her beloved 17 going on 7-year-old BIG brother!!! There was even a piggy-back ride scene through the woods for crying out loud!


Two wolves fight, tearing, ripping and biting. The book also gets bonus marks for having a clear and very satisfying ending. I stood back and watched his movements. I know he supposedly has a “reason,” but said reason should not have affected his personality so much.

References to swearing are made. What was so great about him was that he was far from perfect. Grace Divine Most of the characters were just inane, boring and completely irrelevant.

She did a wonderful job making the love story yummy.

One thing I wondered about was how much Grace’s mother knew about Daniel. I’d like to say thank-you to Bree for the story she created, and the way in which she decided to tell it. We have a kind of unusual triangle between a sister, Grace, who loves her brother J Got this as an advance review copy when I was in Philadelphia last month. The “bad boy good girl” romance also, apparently, means to the author that Grace is “conflicted”– that is, talks in that very dangerous YA doublespeak.

It wasn’t my thing, but I can see girls who like paranormal romance really liking it and it’s just as good and bad as everything else in the genre. I’ve discovered while discussing this book, that I may have a dislike tendency for good girls as main characters. Their interactions were really wonderful
