Paranormal, bad boy and ordinary girl – who hasn’t seen that before? I am totally dadk absolutely awestruck by this apparent reveal which was just ignored all of this time for complete plot fodder and wankery! Bree Despain really knows how to create her characters, and give them personalities that make them shine. Daniel comes back after three years of being gone. She’d known him almost forever, but then he disappeared–and now he’s back.

I guessed it about halfway through, though it wasn’t near as obvious as the “mysterious” event that made Daniel disappear. As a kid, Bree would staple folded papers to make her own “novels. Somewhere along the way, Despain got a solid grasp on dviine pain and injustices teenagers suffer at the hands of the very family and adults who are supposed to protect them.

As Grace gets closer to Daniel, her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night.

The Dark Divine Series

I thought the main topics of interest in the story came from the religious aspect and the idea despani dark secrets in a family who are looked upon as truly divine. Did she know his secret? Pero si ustedes cree que la autora hizo una buena novela con estos ingredientes, se equivocan medio a medio.


Grace must discover the truth behind Jude and Daniel’s dark secret.

Grace angsts constantly about how some family drama makes him “forbidden” to her. Suddenly, Daniel pulls a fast Heel Face Turn and I don’t even notice nor care – because at that point, I was just grateful for anything to happen in the ‘dark and deep abyss of nothingness’ that this book is drowning in. The plot is unsteady.

She has no personality or dxrk of her own whatsoever and is just so goddamn gullible. The main girl’s name is Grace Divine and her dad is a preacher and we got to hear over and over and over again about dsspain she needs to live up to her name.

I like the idea brse the end that true, unselfish love, freely given, can change everything.

A very dull, cliche book with its share of Twilight tropes and a jerk love interest. He starts out as a jerk, then turns into a paranoid, crazy jerk. I won’t even begin to go into all of the similarities; it’s not worth my time.

Refresh and try again. No wonder Fitzpatrick endorsed this book!

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. On one hand, it’s fine if Grace is a goody-goody. I have to be honest, by about halfway through the book I was enjoying this one but fairly convinced I knew what was coming.

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain – book review

I mean, it was supposed to be Daniel who was the major “bad guy” in Jude’s mind These are priceless, centuries-old letters from the Crusades that her dad is borrowing from a freaking MUSEUM, yet Grace just casually tosses them into the bottom of her bag like they’re old homework papers. Hardcoverpages. If Jude’s fate was a little easy to predict, I’ll allow it given that I didn’t find it so until a good pages in, and that was enough for me.


For example, do you seek a …more Look, dude. Quotes from The Dark Divine. But whereas many of the YA paranormal romance books out there these days fall flat on their faces when it comes to the characters and the plot, this one does not. I just thought this was just the author trying to make them deep, substanial and less threatening characters in Daniel’s case with intellectual prowress without actually, you know, showing it.

Does Grace annoy anyone else????? I had my guesses but so did Grace but neither of us knew until it was there. It is remembered how Jude was attacked and almost killed. Grace asks herself, if Daniel’s the prodigal and Jude’s the “good son,” then doesn’t the parable infer the good son is the one in the most danger?

Everything was covered and it ended well wrapped up. I liked that idea alot. Would Daniel still be the blondhaired boy next door Grace and her family, though, are divinr drawn as having faith and trying to live their lives according to Christian values, but finding it extremely difficult at times. I think it’s pretty clear how I feel about him.

The second half of the book kind of fell apart until the climax.
