The Dark Divine has been highly anticipated since I first heard of its release... and I must say that it did NOT disappoint! Bree Despain's debut novel has easily made its way onto my favorites of 2009! The story spiraled into a darkly, thrilling romance with twists and turns that keep you captivated from the very first LINE of the book! Our new author has clearly made an entrance! Through our heroine, Grace Divine, you're with her every step of the way as she tries to understand the mystery behind what had happened to her brother and the disappearance/re-appearance of the boy she loved 3 years prior to the story. The story unraveled in a quick, but not hurried pace, which made this one a real page turner. The story was wrapped up cleanly... but not without some loose ends... but not enough to feel unsatisfied at closure. It just leaves you dying for more! I have not heard whether or not The Dark Divine is the start of a series or if this will be a stand alone, but I could almost bet there will be a follow up! Because I know I won't be the only one wanting to find out what the future has in store for Grace & Daniel!

BLah

I don't get why everyone is saying this book is so great. It wasn't. The characters weren't original. Daniel was in my opinion just plain weird, and he's so problemed obviously he needs some mental help. He doesn't even seem to care for Grace. And Jude, I knew there was...
I don't get why everyone is saying this book is so great. It wasn't. The characters weren't original. Daniel was in my opinion just plain weird, and he's so problemed obviously he needs some mental help. He doesn't even seem to care for Grace. And Jude, I knew there was something not right about him the whole time. The ending was awful! It just wasn't anything new to me. You want a fantasy/romance with action? Read Vampire Academy, Twilight, Need,The Morganville Vampires, The Mortal Instruments series!

    The Dark Deception more like it

    I've been DECIEVED!!
    I came into the book store thinking I was reading a book about a NORMAL, troubled teenager and his "problems." But noooo.. 185pgs. into the book i realized it was all about supernatural beings. Werewolves? What?! where in the summary does the book talk about werewolves? If i had known i was reading about werewolves i would've put the book down immediately but there was no way of knowing the book was about werewolves. I wanted to get away from all these "creatures" and read about normal humans that aren't possessed by any demons especially after the whole "twilight" phenomon but once again another supernatural book was regurgitated back to readers.
    and btw the ending totatlly sucked! In the dark divine, it isn't a good thing to be a werewolve. It's actually a curse because the wolf inside of you supposedly possesses the person and forces it to do "horrendous" things such as kill. A bit bizzare, different from other werewolve books because in those book being a werewolve is actually a good thing. And teh only way to get rid of this curse is to be killed by a true loved one. O.o? yes that was my expression. The only tradition this book has is that when bitten my a werewolve the victim becomes infected also.
    If you like werewolve drama.. go ahead and indulge yourself into this book but otherwise.. if you want to read a book containing normal people who don't possess supernatural powers like me.. then this book isn't your pick!
