WOW! Talk about an emotional roller coaster.

I was a fan of The Dark Divine, but I have to say that I think The Lost Saint may have topped it. And how perfect was the title "The Lost Saint" such perfect metaphorical use. It could have easily described several characters in the novel. Genius!

Despain does a wonderful job intertwining the mythology within the aspects of religion. It's a refreshing experience.

I must admit I was expecting the conflict between Grace and Daniel, but it didn't exactly p

Is there some kind of rule that say the second book has to be an emotional roller coaster?
This one was filled with drama and major emotions. Grace saved Daniel. Thinking everything was okay, things all of the sudden began to change. Daniel becomes more distant leaving a wide open space for a new boy to come in. Grace is lonely and that is bad. Grace begins to lies and falls into a trap that she doesn't see.

First off, major emotions. Poor Grace. After all that she has done, Daniel goes and treats

Although an engaging follow-up to its prequel, The Dark Divine, I have to say, I was a little bit disappointed by this book.

Perhaps my expectations were just too high for this book, but I found the plot line rather predictable compared to the awesomeness of the first one. Daniel aggravated me until the very end of the book, and despite my unwavering support in The Dark Divine, I felt his withdrawn, secretive nature was a bit too much when applied to their situation here.

The Lost Saint is even better than the first book. It's full of fun twists and turns and ends with a shocking cliffhanger, which is my favorite kind. I still don't get the legs on the cover but this is a great story and I look forward to getting my hands on the next one. It's a really fun series.

When Grace Divine saved Daniel from the curse of the werewolf, she was bitten by her brother, Jude, and was burdened with the curse, as well. Now, Daniel is training her to balance the wolf side of her self, her superpower side, and her normal human side. But when Daniel becomes distant and doesn't think it's a good idea to train anymore, Grace turns to a new guy in her life.

Talbot thinks Grace needs to train and helps her learn how to use her power. And al
No more pondering. CLEAN CUT after 59 pages. And I simply use of my status comments as my review (which feels like re-heating yesterdays dinner somehow, but also fits since the book itself seems to be reheated and rechewed, too):

What an ending! O_0
It was a great book even though I wanted to punch Grace and Daniel in the face for acting like total losers around each other.
I felt sorry for Talbot. Hopefully we will get a chance to see more of him in the third book.
Good but not as enjoyable as the first, 3.5 stars

Earlier this year, I devoured Bree Despain's debut novel, THE DARK DIVINE, in one sitting and loved it. While I enjoyed THE LOST SAINT, it didn't quite live up to its predecessor.

Grace made the ultimate sacrifice to save Daniel's soul and lost herself to the werewolf curse. Ten months later, she and Daniel are still together, but Grace's family is falling apart. After Grace receives a cryptic phone call from her brother, she knows what she must d

3.5 stars. Honestly, I do not know why I am giving this book a 3.5 rating when it deserves a slightly lower one.

Not to jump on the "let's bash paranormal romance by labeling it as a Twilight ripoff" bandwagon, but I have to admit, The Lost Saint was exactly the same as New Moon. Once in love boyfriend grows distant with a mysterious secret, girl is completely clueless and relentlessly questioning, new guy shows up to test the girl's affection for the original guy... yes, it is all here.

The wolf deep inside Grace threatens to break free. Some say let it out, some urge her to control her dangerous dark side before it consumes her body and soul. Unsure of what is right and what is wrong, Grace does know one thing for sure- she won't sit around idle while her brother Jude is lost out in the world by himself. Swallowed up by an unforgiving city, she knows she must find Jude before it's too late. With her mother grief-stricken and her father constantly on the road, Grace decides to ...more

My Thoughts

For those of you who were around last year and remember reading my review of The Dark Divine, you'll probably also remember that, despite it's popularity, I wasn't a big fan off the book. However, since I thought the author, Bree Despain, had a lot of potential, and because I'm a firm believer in second chances, I decided to give The Lost Saint a shot when I was asked to review it.

Oh how I enjoyed The Lost Saint! As I've said before, I'm not always a fan of the second books in series, as the characters sometimes make choice (that I know the need to make) that make me cringe and more often than not, it breaks the main character and it either breaks up the main love interests or leaves their relationship in jeopardy. This sequel has all that and more. Not only does Bree deliver a darker journey for Grace to take, as she learns to control her inner wolf, but she th

The Lost Saint takes us on a fast ride of jealousy,betrayal, revenge, vulnerability, self revelation, redemption, and of course, unconditional love.

Everything Grace has known her life and world to consist of is tested in book two. With Jude missing, her mother has a bit of a mental break down, leaving Grace to shoulder more responsibility in the home as her Father sets off on a search to bring Jude home.

Okay, so I admit when I started reading this I was thinking to myself, " Here we go again, I'm going to know every twist and turn and have no suprises." Well, on a positive note, I was wrong. I was pleasantly suprised along the read. Did I love the book then? Not-so-much.

I was suprised with Daniel's Father's role. You knew he was going to come back about midway through the story, but still his character seemed so juvenille.

Okay, the first book was interesting and intriguing.
In these books the werewolves are shown from a different perspective. There is another myth behind this story and the author researched it very well.
This book is not like e.g. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. It seems very similar at some points, but at the same time it is completely different.
While the other book is smooth and more like a fairy tale this one is full of tension and strong, powerful feelings and actions!

This review is also posted on my blog, In The Good Books.

The Lost Saint had an amazing plot - I could never see where the story was headed. Part of that unpredictability probably stemmed from being locked in Grace's head, with the first person narration, and having no idea which other characters you could trust or couldn't.

The werewolfism (I don't care if it's not a word - you know what I mean) in this series is so unique in lore to other werewolf books. I especially liked how it was seen as mor

I have never felt this disappointed in a second book of a series. I read it really fast just after it came out and was extremely disappointed. I had originally planned to read it again, give Bree a second chance. But I’ve had it on my Kobo for a month and have not had the stomach to endure it again. The characters, plot, predictability, pacing and setting were just all wrong. It felt like she wrote it really fast, but could have used another year to get this one right. It just feels wrong to me. ...more

I must say, I rather enjoyed The Last Saint! It started off a bit slow for me and at times I felt some scenes were forced, but overall it was a fun read.

Grace has her hands full in the exciting sequel to The Dark Divine. In The Last Saint she not only struggles to hold onto her relationship with Daniel, but also resisting her inner wolf. Violence, once again, threatens the good city of Rose Crest and nothing and no one seems to be as they appear.

I read this book as a follow up to The Dark Divine that I just read and reviewed. I did not review this book for content for The Literate Mother. But, if I had, it would receive about the same sort of review.

In this book, the plot thickens, more players are brought into the game and we see Grace, Jude and Daniel evolving into different people/things.

As we all know Grace's a wolf now and Daniel is teaching her to use her power and to be human at the same time . And then something strange happens . Jude calls Grace to warn her and then a series of strange activities

Don't you just hate it when you are smarter than the main character? When all arrows point this way yet the main character spirals the other? I felt like murdering Grace when reading this book. Her obvious stupidity was infuriating and the fact that all the clues were SCREAMING at her she just couldn't get it. In The Dark Divine she was smart articulate and strong headed yet in this one she was ditsy and air headed.

I didn't like this book as much a I loved the first one but it was still really good. Although I would've liked to read more Grace/Daniel moments. The characters were really good even though people lke Talbot and Caleb, I just didn't like their role in the book. The ending was really good and unexpected but I almost cried when I found out what happened to Daniel :(

This was a little bit better than the first one, but just a little bit.
I had a lot of theories and all of them turned out to be true (even tho I really didn't expect for ALL OF THEM to be true, but they were lol)

I have to say that I find really comical and annoying (mostly annoying) everytime Grace describes April as a Cocker Spaniel, if she does it one more time... istg

I read 2/3 of these books so I might as well finish the trilogy, at least it makes me laugh a lot and keeps me entertained.

I loved absolutely loved this book. It picks up where the last one left off. Not necessarily the exact date but with the same circumstances. Jude is still missing, Grace is dealing with the curse of the Urbat, and Daniel is adjusting to be cured. Or so we think!!!

I loved the first book in the A Dark Divine series, so I knew I would love the second, and I was right. The story about how Grace Divine's life and how it completely started changing after Daniel Kalbi came back. Now Grace knows new things that many people don’t know about which is about werewolf's, and it’s destroying her family and her love with Daniel. There's a lot of surprises in the book and a lot of trust being tested. If you like a good fiction book about supernaturals, love and adventur ...more
