Editorial Reviews

Review

"Oh my goodness, talk about a book that had everything I wanted: a bad boy with a dark, tortured past, a complicated romance, and a mystery that made my heart beat in double-time right up to the last page. The only thing I can hold against this book is it robbed me of a night's sleep. Do I regret it? Not one bit. Darkly comic and surprising, this paranormal rises to the top." -Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times Best-Selling author of Hush, Hush and Crescendo

"Bree Despain takes familiar myths and legends and wraps them elegantly around a haunting story of love, loss, family and forgiveness. Beautiful." -Lesley Livingston, author of Wondrous Strange

More About the Author

THE SHORT VERSION
Bree rediscovered her childhood love for creating stories when she took a semester off college to write and direct plays for at-risk, inner-city teens from Philadelphia and New York. She currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband, two young sons, and her beloved TiVo. THE DARK DIVINE is Bree's debut novel.

THE LONG VERSION
As a kid, Bree would staple folded papers to make her own "novels." As a teen, she wrote stories in notebooks while her friends waited for the next page to be finished. Her teachers told her she should be a writer. But Bree thought only special people could be writers, so as the years past, she settled into the idea of becoming a lawyer or something else just as ordinary.

Bree rediscovered her childhood love for creating stories when she took a semester off college to write and direct plays for at-risk, inner city teens from Philadelphia and New York. With a renewed passion for story, and the young adult audience, she returned to Brigham Young University, filled her schedule with creative writing and literature classes, and started writing stories again. But regular life kicked in, and she soon found herself married with a new baby, working full-time, and with very little writing done.

That's when the universe threw a pick-up truck in her path. The car accident left Bree with an understanding that life was too short to not do what you absolutely love. A few days later, her husband brought home a used laptop computer, placed it by her bedside, and said, "You'd better start writing." Her life has never been the same since.

In a moment of karmic perfection, Bree received the offer to purchase The Dark Divine on the 6th anniversary of the car accident that put her back on the path to becoming an author.

I think this the best series ending I have ever read.
Fall Into Books
Bree Despain truly knows and loves her characters, and that is obvious when you read any installment of The Dark Divine series.
MangaKindaGirl
With all action and the big fight that takes place near the end of the story, there needed to be some casualties.

Wow. I think this the best series ending I have ever read. The only reason it got an A- instead of an A+ is because of the many grammatical, spelling, and typing errors that were in my purchased Kindle copy. If this had been an ARC, then I would have overlooked it (obviously), but since it was a finished edition from a major publishing company, I thought that an editor would have looked at it. I've never had this trouble with a book by Despain or released by Egmont before, so I'm not sure if someone sent the wrong copy to the Kindle making people or if the print book is like this as well. However, the story was fantastic.

I have enjoyed this entire series, and while I normally don't like literature that focuses on faith, these books never felt preachy. The faith is woven into the story, much like any other mythology is used in a story. Therefore, it should appeal to readers of various religions. Also, Grace is just a good character. Sure, she's flawed, and she has to overcome a TON of internal and external battles in this novel, but she grows and she her goodness is always apparent, even when she is struggling. I also enjoyed how we got to know the other characters better, and the secondary characters who have been present throughout the entire novel also evolved over the course of this narrative. After seeing Grace's battle with her wolf first hand in The Savage Grace, I understood the horrible things Jude did in the previous novels. That made me like him much better.

Grace and Daniel's story is a sweet one, but instead of being all sugary, gross, and co-dependent, they always treat each other with mutual love and respect. It's a healthy relationship, which is very uncommon in any YA novel these days.

Format: Hardcover
The Savage Grace is the final book in the Dark Divine Series and it picks up right where the second book left off. Daniel is stuck as a white wolf and Grace is desperate to change him back to the human Daniel she loves. Unfortunately, she isn't quite sure how to accomplish this and she feels that Daniel is running out of time.

Not only does Grace have Daniel to worry about but her problems are piling up. She still has Talbot texting her asking if she needs him and keeping her guard up for Caleb and his demons. Sirhan's death is coming. Not to mention her family problems, both her parents end up in the hospital in this book. Her mom ends up in the hospital because she had a nervous breakdown after she was told the truth by her husband and Pastor Divine ends up in the hospital because of being caught in a bomb blast in the warehouse where Grace and Daniel were captured. Of course there's Jude to worry about too. Grace is hesitant to trust her brother after he handed her over to Caleb so Jude's stuck in a cage in the church basement.

Grace also has to deal with some personal problems, them mainly concerning Daniel. She's angry that because he saved her he's stuck in wolf form when he was suppose to save himself instead and because he's not human he can't be with her. Her inner wolf now talks to her frequently since she lost her moonstone and Grace has to do her best not to give in to her inner wolf knowing what will happen if she does. In addition Grace admits to Gabriel that she has lost her faith in God.

Boy did Grace have a lot on her shoulders in this book but because she faced her problems and dealt with them I liked her as a character in this book. However, and I hate to say it I really do, but I felt she was pulling a Bella Swan in some places in this book.

My Thoughts: We are once again united with Daniel and Grace. But this time, Daniel is stuck in wolf form after the last encounter in The Lost Saint. Grace is trying her best with the help of her friends to find a way to get him back to being a human. They are still in danger, with being hunted. In more ways than one.

So many new characters, which was awesome. Talbot is still around to make Grace's life confusing and frustrating. Actually liked him a lot less in this one!

Grace has a lot of tasks she has to do in this novel. She must find a way to help Daniel, keep her family safe, and find Caleb and his gang and do something about them. She also must think about college and what she is going to do.

By this point, you've read the others in the series, you know the characters, you know the plots, and you just want to know how it's all going to end, so I'm not going to go on and on and ruin it for you. Just read the novel to find out what happens to Grace and her crew.

The Savage Grace was a nice conclusion to the series. It was action packed, and I'm glad it ended the way it did. It was wrapped up nicely, almost in a big fat bow.

Overall: Really enjoyed it a lot. Still didn't love as much as The Dark Divine, but it ended how I hoped it would. This is one of the best werewolf series I've read. And the books are freaking long, so very much worth the money for those who don't like to spend $15 on 200 page books. haha.

Cover: Like it! Like the red. These covers are all pretty. Love the dress.

What I'd Give It: 4/5 Cupcakes
