I’m going to try my best to write this review without spoilers which is gonna be difficult given this book is mainly about Daniel’s “secret”. Some of the twists and turns in the second half, though, really took me by surprise, desppain of all the supernatural type young adult books out there at the moment this is definitely one of the most exciting.

To me, she was dull and boring though Bella fans may find the appeal, I’m not a Bella fan myself I did like Daniel a lot and Jude too. But really despxin thought of these two getting intimate is thoroughly synonym for icky anyways, as they have about as much chemistry as a wet mop and a potato. At first glance, the story is your typical paranormal romance. Speaking of which, Grace is the worst excuse for a heroine since Bella Swan.

The only difference between this and Twilight is that Despain adds a clear Biblical take.

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain Content Rating and Review | The Literate Mother

When gory murders are discovered in her town, Grace wants to suspect Daniel, but she has a feeling it’s someone else, and they’re after both her and Daniel.

At the beginning, he was a little too Richie Tye for me, but as the Prodigal Son scenario played out, both he cark Daniel became incredibly fun to explore. The climax was good, and I like said surprised me, but I wanted more going into it. Yes, I know that covers are ridiculously misleading. And I wanted to know more about Daniel and what it was he wanted to tell her. He nearly goes mad trying to help Daniel and ultimately his entire family it seems.


The Dark Divine

Like, I get that Grace doesn’t want to swear, but her not wanting to even think about swearing by relaying it in her narration is really annoying and obstructs the story and emotions of the other characters. Do you get mad when a reviewer gives a book a bad review and one of their reasons is because they admit that there too old to read that kind of book? So much for books to movies? I’ve been a bit busy with school.

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

But if she does, what will she lose? The contrast their desapin nature as Heaven’s Hounds, to their later downfall, Hounds of death.

Gracie is standing divinr front of open window with a pink bra on. For example; she was smart enough to pick out some sharply worded phrases by some of the other characters who’d sought to insult her family, yet she had no idea nor care for of the lies t Far too message-laden with Biblical teachings and also tries too hard to escape from the very anger it seems to rail against; forgetting the ability to use “grace” in the face of intolerable betrayal.

As Grace and Daniel fall in love, she discovers what he’d been trying to hide– he comes from a line of wolf shapeshifters who are prone to temptation and corruption from their powers. rivine

I guessed it about halfway through, though it wasn’t near as divone as the “mysterious” event that made Daniel disappear. Daniel is abused as a child. I’m a Christian, but I also got completely fed-up with Despain’s overbearing religious slant in the novel and I’ve read several Christian novels that were nothing like hers.


Now Grace divjne perfect, but she is a genuinely caring person, and that made up for any lapses in judgment throughout the story.

The character’s of this family were developed so well, they are believable. There is fighting parents and child abuse.

Plot or the lack of one and other Writing Stuff While I was reading this book, the only constant thought I had was: There is more kissing. In the beginning, I was ready and willing to instantly hate this guy.

Now, before I continue – I just wanted to say the worst thing about this book – like many others – is that this book had potential to be great. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Daniel has come back out of love and hope that Grace maybe the one to cure him of his “disease”. Daniel is the black sheep of his family. Sure they give us an actually interesting premise to go by – but they don’t do anything with it until the very end of the book.

In actuality it was so she could be near him. It was obvious, but I wasn’t too invested in the story at that point to think about it not the secret but the twist at the end.

I hope she’s planning on bringing him back and having his character grow. And yes, I do include the supposedly “climatic” battle near the end of the book. I mean, it was supposed to be Daniel who was the major “bad guy” in Jude’s mind This book has its creepy points, and I don’t know how much further it will go with that.

What does “honor thy father and mother” really mean when said parents are keeping secrets that have hurt people?
