The Story:

The non-stop sequel to The Dark Divine delivers an even hotter romance and more thrilling action than Bree Despain's first novel.  Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi.  She gave her soul to the wolf to save him and lost her beloved mother.  When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do.  She must become a Hound of Heaven.  Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot - a newcomer to town who promises her that he can help her be a hero.  But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her relationship with Daniel begins to crumble.  Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace becomes prideful in her new abilities - not realizing that an old enemy has returned and deadly trap is about to be sprung.  Readers, ravenous for more Grace and Daniel, will be itching to sink their teeth into The Lost Saint.

My Review

I loved the first book in the Dark Divine trilogy, The Dark Divine, so I could not wait to get my hands on 
The Lost Saint! And I was not let down!

Tag Line:

A family destroyed

A love threatened
An enemy returns

Opening Line:

"You can do this, Grace," Daniel said between sharp breaths. 


The premise of 
The Lost Saint was alluring! Grace gave up her soul to save her one true love. Then had to learn to hone her power without becoming a slave to it. Insert smooth, mysterious Talbot who gets along great with Grace and tries to help her with her new gift. And alas ... This go around it was all about the love triangle. Honestly, I have never really been into the whole love-triangle bit -- it usually is not done well in my experience. However, I would be remiss if I did not admit how Talbot was definitely a worthy opponent. Daniel was not so bad-boy anymore -- losing his werewolf edge -- and now things seemed up in the air between him and Grace. So, throwing Talbot into the mix spiced the plot up some.

The pacing of 
The Lost Saint was was great for the plot of the story. There was a new wicked enemy, loss, new journeys, a rift between Daniel and Grace and the delicious Talbot. 
The writing was just as good as the first go around. Despain's storytelling was enticing and kept me wanting more!

All in all, while I loved The Dark Divine more, I gobbled up The Lost Saint and enjoyed it. If you have read The Dark Divine, definitely read The Lost Saint. You will not be sorry you did! This is my favorite werewolf series and Despain does not disappoint.
