The Dark Divine by Bree Despain

Its funny because when I first saw the book, I thought the cover was gorgeous - if not a little pale - but when I read the first chapter...everything kind of fell flat. I kept thinking I was gonna hate this book and I kept myself from reading it for awhile. But then I got further into the story and well...I was hooked!

The main character Grace Divine has to live up to certain expectations she would rather not, especially those set by her religious family. But when the mysterious Daniel Kalbi comes back to town after disappearing, things go bump in the night...literally. Wow, that last bit sounded corny but its true. Honestly, I wasn't crazy about Grace and Daniel at first - I mean come on, they felt sooo cliche. Grace, the typical good girl who tries too hard all around and Daniel, the mysterious bad boy with a past and an attitude. But they GREW on me. Grace realized that she needs to break certain rules and not be what everyone expects her to be, and I think we've all been there done that. And finding out what actually happened to Daniel in the made me so sad. I was super excited when the plot picked up and I felt Jude was instantly likable.

Basically, I'm super excited for the sequel, which I now currently own :D and I'm dying to see where Grace and Daniel's relationship goes and what happens to Jude!
