So jasmine is being haunted by a ghost in here dreams. She does not know what is wrong with the girl. She just know she needs to rescue her. Then there is the problem of all the missing women. They are suspected to have joined this cult called the Sanctuary. The cult leader though let's them stay and talk to whoever and look wherever. Are Jasi and her team going to be able to figure out what's going on? This was the third and final book in the series. I didn't read the first two but was able to follow along. I am planning on going back and reading the trilogy from the beginning. Anyway it was an amazing story. The author writes in a way that keeps you enthralled and wanting more. There is so much suspense but the ending was worth it! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Exciting final book in this thrilling Divine Trilogy, kept me reading non-stop! I loved the first two books in the Divine trilogy, I am thrilled to be reading this, the third and final book. It is also with sorrow at leaving behind the characters that Cheryl Kaye Tardif has given us. This book can be read as a standalone but reading the first two will enhance the experience. The Prologue takes us into the past of Jasmine or Jasi as she prefers, the main character, as a recurring dream, vision or could it be a ghost, always featuring the same girl but this girl ages with time. First seen in Jasi's closet as an abused child, now she appears anywhere, anytime. Jasi is a member of the PSI branch of the CFBI. This special branch is comprised almost entirely of agents who have psychic abilities of various types. In Jasi's case, she is a Pyro-Psychic, able to feel what a pyromaniac feels as he kills by fire, her skills brought to the fore when she smells smoke. Thus, she has to approach a suspect fire after breathing pure oxygen to keep from contaminating what she is smelling. Her team works as a tightly-knit group, each with their own abilities...except Brandon who is an arson expert and brings his own set of skills to the table. A heart-wrenching call from a friend sends the team out in search of a missing woman, a well-known reporter who has been out of touch for five days. She had been investigating a story about missing women, and had gone incognito into the 'Sanctuary.' The premise of the Sanctuary is to rescue the homeless and downtrodden, but does it? It seems very much like a cult. The leader appears to sincerely believe what he is doing is helping people. But does he? Is he really the sincere person he seems to be? Jasi's group has free reign to search the grounds, in fact she and Brandon are even given the use of a cottage in the compound. Granted, many of the women act afraid to talk to them or else flatly refuse to, but the team has no trouble talking to most of them and they can't really find anything. The story revolves around trying to find a foothold to learn about so many missing women who may or may not have been at Sanctuary. But secrets may be buried deeper than anyone imagines, even the members of Sanctuary. A horrific murder has taken place within the compound, supposedly the result of accident, but Jasi has seen something different, another in the group, Natassia who is a Victim Empath and 'sees' what the victim's last sight was agrees with Jasi. The body in the walk-in furnace, was it really an accident? The shattered bones discovered, are they really from bears hunting other animals? I love the author's way with expression, description, and energy in her books and this is no exception. These people come alive. Through the PSI group's interaction with their special gifts the search moves outside, their psi-impressions have shown horrible and terrifying deeds very quickly a mind-blowing chase is on. The pace picks up to excruciating time-crunching as the horror of what is really happening begins to be realized. With all the horror and life-threatening sport going on, with all the sorrow around, there is some good to come out of it all, almost missed but fortunately there is an overwhelmingly stubborn ghost in connection with the also stubborn Jasi, and the end of the trilogy is surprising and satisfying. I cried.

Seems like I have been waiting FOREVER for Divine Sanctuary to come out. Let me say it now, it was well worth the wait. With so many twist and turns, this final entry in the Divine trilogy will keep you on the edge of your set guessing until the very end. Let’s start I am not a big mystery fan. However, I do like a good PNR story. It doesn’t have to have to be a vamp kind, humans that are ‘different’ will do me just as well. So knowing that this is a PNR mystery what is about this book and series that drew me in? I like Ms. Tardif writing style. She spins a good tale and creates characters that I can find myself interested in. Our MCs, Jasi and Brandon, I have been following along and just love. Jasi is tough and smart but not completely infallible. Brandon is a nice balance to her a both a work and relationship partner. As they work together on this case I found myself not only interested on what they were investigated but as well as how their relationship progress. The secondary characters of Ben and Natassia were great as usual, but it was Natassia’s interactions with ‘Jay’ that had me cracking up and wishing for more. As for Father Jeremiah and all his cult followers, I definitely did NOT drink the Kool-Aid. I knew one of them had to be the killer especially with their stepford wive/ blind minion following but the actually one. Yup didn’t see it coming. But I’m getting ahead of myself. So on to the mystery. Did I see the whodunit coming? Absolutely not! I was guessing the whole time but all the reveals definitely had me out in left field wondering how did I not see that come?! For you the reader, I suggest trying not to guess the who/what/how and just enjoy the story. Because even if you do figure it out, there will be a few strange twists that will have you scratching your head wonder how did I miss that. I got to mention the cover. When I first saw it I was curious to its meaning. The gates almost resemble something you would find at a cemetery. Mix it with the title I was thinking…some sort of religious aspect (?) I was missing. Now that I finished the book I look once again at the cover and the gates. Oh yeah I get it now. Am I going to explain? Not without giving a spoiler so you will need to read the book for yourself. But I do suggest once you finish Divine Sanctuary to go back and look at the cover. It definitely will give you a new perspective on what it means. So this is the finally book in the Divine Trilogy. I know because it’s in the Message from the Author. I’m not exactly disappointed. Ms. Tardif did a great job finishing out all the linger issues I had. Now while this book can be read as a stand-alone there are a few lines running through the whole series that won’t make sense unless you read all three titles. This is definitely a must read series for anyone who is a fan of the author as well as anyone who likes PNR mysteries. I received this book from the author for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars– 5
