March? Are you kidding me? Ugh,I want it now!

Why? Oh, why? This book was bittersweet. A lot of good and bad people/werewolves died. There were some things which bothered me, especially those about Talbot. I really wanted them to go differently.

As much as I love this trilogy, THE COVER IS RUINED.
When I saw there was a cover, I could've screamed but when I enlarged it, it was like I was on a high and then I was suddenly in a deep depressed state. (I have no idea what that is like, but it's what I felt like when I saw this cover!!)
First of all, you do not have the body in the cover, only the legs.
-The title name doesn't go across the figure, espeically not that big, it goes nicely to the side. With the same font as the previous editio

I was asked to do an official blurb for this book so here it is!

THE SAVAGE GRACE is the action-filled race-to-the-finish last book of the Dark Divine series. The twists and turns in the plot fueled an adrenalin rush that propelled me forward until I reached the tenderly romantic and emotionally gripping conclusion.

I love this book. I freaking love it!

Warning: This review contains spoilers.

Grace kills it! She is a superhero! She is the Divine One. Powerful and determined and strong-willed and at the same time helpful and soft and a healer.
After Daniel's transformation she is searching for a way to turn him back into a human because she feels that the Daniel she loves is slowly disappearing. She actually finds a way.
Grace was always a fighter but in this book is turns into a real superwoman. She is amazin

I am really looking forward to the release of this final book in the Dark Divine series by Bree Despain. Release date is Dec 27, 2011.
Book 2 left us really dangling, and I can't wait to see how it all wraps up.

Totally fake cover.

Edit: And now that I know it's not, I'm totally pissed.
It felt sort of rushed at times and Grace was stupid, only for a little bit of the book surprisingly,but stupid nonetheless. I mean it was so obvious (view spoiler) from the beginning. I only read this series for Daniel, and the fact that I liked the fi ...more
Well, where to start?


*ahem* Excuse me, I don't know what came over me.

It is amazing. The books, starting from The Dark Divine to The Lost Saint and now ending with The Savage Grace, just got better and better throughout.

No boring time wasting plots; no characters that are unrealistic personality wise (I say that as I'm pretty sure that werewolves and Ahks etc are difficult to come by.); and basically, no dull moments.

Not only do we have probably on
This was my favorite out of the whole series, and I was glad it was a long read in fact it could have even been longer I wouldn't have minded. I was that caught up in the story and the emotions of the characters. Mrs. Despain writes these amazing characters that you really feel, whether it's their joy or their pain and it is intense with all those big werewolf emotions are concerned lol. This story did make me laugh out loud and cry which I was a little surprised by. This story is full of action ...more

The Savage Grace by Bree Despain is the final chapter of The Dark Divine series, which follows the spiritual and paranormal journey of Grace Divine and her family and friends.

What drew me to this series initially was the Christian element in the books. It is very, very rare that you find a young adult book that deals with the subject in a way that is not poking fun or being flat out disrespectful. I remember reading through half of the first book and immediately texting
This is one of those guilty pleasure young adult books, written by a local author. But by reading this book I'm supporting a local author and thus helping our local economy, I'm supporting mom-trepenuers, and having a little me-reading-time altogether. So I'm totally justified.

This was the 3rd installment of The Dark Divine trilogy. I really enjoyed the first book and read it as a breath of fresh air in the YA fantasy genre. The second book, The Lost Saint, I really had a hard time reading becau

Well I have waited for the final book in the Dark Divine Novel Trilogy, The Savage Grace, for quite sometime now! I have loved Bree Despain's writing and I have enjoyed this series so much. I have a thing for werewolves, and the Dark Divine series has been so fun to read. I wasn't sure if The Savage Grace was going to be good as the last two, just because it is so hard for me to keep reading about the same story. I found that The Savage Grace wasn't as good for me as the first two. It was pretty ...more
This is a review of the entire series, not just this third book.

First, I have a confession to make: I'm not much of a reader of paranormal romance. There. I've said it. Phew! But perhaps I should take another look...

Okay. Short Review. Here it goes: I LOVED all three of the books! There, now that you know my bias, here's my reasoning.

Faith: It was refreshing to see a Christian protagonist and family in an honest light. While there were a couple of odd moments for me in the first book - mostly wa

Are you shocked that I’m still reading this series? Yes, I am, too. After the two books, I had to continue on. It’s like the Twilight series. I didn’t care about Breaking Dawn but I came that far. I had to know how it ended. This book picks up very quickly after the end of the second book, which is nice for continuation, but the more I think about it the more it makes me realize how much Despain packed into three books.

Oh gosh. Could this ending be any more perfect? Although I wasn't too thrilled with the second book in this trilogy, this is the best finale ever! It had everything I wanted and more. The only thing that really bugged me was that in the second half, there were a bunch of grammar mistakes. But besides that, I'm absolutely satisfied. Although there are things that are bit

I read the third and final book and was not too happy with this one either.

My patience finally snapped when it came to Grace's mother, really.
She was a horrible mother.
The author wanted us to feel sorry for her but I couldn't.

This was a great end to the series. If you liked the first 2 books then you will obviously want to read this too. If you haven't read those no sense in reading a review for book 3 and anything I will say will just be a spoiler.

Content: language, violence and making out
Bueno, ahem, secándome las lágrimas de los ojos, comenzaré.
Esta saga la empecé en 2011 y Dark Divine pasó a ser de mis favoritos enseguida. No pude encontrar la continuación sino hasta 2014. Volví a leer el primer libro, en diciembre el segundo y ahora este.
Saliendo de mis datos personales, esta es la primera trilogía que leo y le pongo 5 estrellas a todos los libros.
Dark Divine empieza su rollo con la llegada de Daniel Kalbi, un amigo de la infancia de Grace Divine y su hermano Jude. Aunque t
What happened to the gorgeous covers of the first 2?! Don't get me wrong; it's a "nice" cover but there is some awkwardness to the image. And why the hands when the first 2 didn't? And that darkish coral-colored dress? Okay, maybe it's a bit more vibrant than actual coral, but....still.

But aside from the 1 or 2 annoying references to CORAL, the Dark Divine has captured my heart. I need to ride up to the top of a skyscraper and confess my adoration...although no one would probably hear me from th

The Savage Grace is book three in the Dark Divine Series. Over the past two books readers have followed this dark and twisting journey for Grace and Daniel. After uncovering that Grace's brother was alive and well; they must come to grips with the knowledge that he has also become their enemy. With Daniel stuck in the form of the white wolf; Grace is on her own to uncover how to save him and everyone else she loves. This was a very character developing story for Grace. The changes in her since t ...more
I received this book first from winning it from Bree's blog, and then I received it again from Random house. I put off reviewing this until the release date was a little closer, and I had some time to think over the events of the book. This is one of my all time favorite trilogies, and I wanted to give it a fair review. There were a lot of things I really like about this book that made it quite different from other YA books, but there were also a bunch of things I didn't like and made this book ...more
I enjoyed The Dark Divine trilogy. It’s nice when a series ends and it feels like each book serves a purpose and leaves you craving more rather than overstaying its welcome. The characters show growth throughout the books, and there is a good mix of romance, suspense and paranormal intrigue, along with spiritual themes. The final installment The Savage Grace is action packed and bittersweet, and delivers an emotional punch. The conclusion gives some closure to the werewolf curse storyline while ...more

An amazing end to the Dark Divine trilogy! This book wraped up the series so well! I was captivated by Despain's writing and how she used so much detail and description when she wrote about the battles that took place through out this book. At the beginning of this book I was a little skeptical because of the absence of Daniel,since he was still stuck in wolf form, but this minor absence made it even more exciting when he came back to his human form. The difference between the Savage Grace and t ...more
Despain's back in action for the third installment of her Dark Divine series.

Fans of the author's previous works might notice a slight shift in the general tone of The Savage Grace as our Were heroes face off film-style against Akhs, Gelals, the Shadow Kings...and Caleb Kalbi himself in Despain's most action-packed title yet.

A host of likable sidekicks is introduced, which adds a new and interesting dynamic to Grace and Daniel's tale, but the introduction and subsequent portrayal of such a large
I cannot wait for this book to come out!!!! This is a highlt anticipated book for me. I just wishshe would release the title and cover. The covers on these books are beautiful!

After over a year of waiting I've finally got my hands on it. I loved it. But that was expected. Although it wasn't my favorite book in the series I was still pretty impressed by it. It started off slow, mainly because of Daniel's significant absent. Well he's there but only in wold form and Grace can't talk to him. When D

“I guess its time you officially met the lost boys," I said to Daniel.
"Lost boys? You mean like that old Kiefer Sutherland movie?
"What? No, I mean like Peter Pan and the lost boys."
"Is she calling us fairies?" Asked Slade.
"No," Brent said. "She means the lost boys that never wanted to grow up, and got into mischief with Peter Pan."
"Still sounds like fairies to me." Slade crossed his tattooed arms in front of his chest.
"Still sounds like that Kiefer Sutherland movie to me." Daniel smirked.
"We were in the play together, like, seven years ago. You were mad because my mom made you wear tights, but you wanted to be a pirate."
Daniel held his hand up. "Partial amnesia here, remember? I must have blocked out any and all recollections associations with said tights."
Brent, Zach, and Ryan laughed. Slade almost cracked a smile.
