Review: The Dark Divine

Author: Bree Despain

Summary: (back cover) Grace Divine--daughter or the local pastor--always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared and her brother Jude came home covered in his own blood.

Now that Daniel's returned, Grace must choose between her growing attraction to him and her loyalty to her brother. As Grace gets closer to Daniel, she learns the truth about that mysterious night and how to save the ones she loves, but it might cost her the one thing she cherishes most: her soul.

Review: A wonderful book. Although readers may be wary of the religious angle the book seems to have, I think that without it, there would be no story.

Religion is a part of who the characters are and it explains a lot about the storyline later in the book. Grace Divine is a realistic character. She is strong and individualistic, but she is also dependent on certain aspects of her world. Her flaws are human and Grace learns to look inside herself for the answers she seeks.

The storyline moved quickly along making sure that the reader stays hooked by the tale. Daniel is an interesting well-rounded character and a part of Grace's family. Paranormal fans will enjoy it.
