Editorial Reviews


"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

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.

I'm glad that I finally had a chance to finish this series. I enjoyed watching the characters grow and come into a future they never thought the see.
1. Plot. The plot moved quickly. If you have not read the first two books, I suggest you do. Since this book dives in right where the last one left off, its important you read the other books so that your not confused. Still, the plot has lots of action, fights and a lot of solving mysteries.
2. Back Round History. This book contains lots of history dating back to Egyptians times. I enjoyed all the history that is mixed in with the present tense. Still, at times I felt like some of these parts through the present story off. Like, you had to have know what happened in the past in order to know whats going on now. Know what I mean? I get that you had to go back, still I felt like it took away from what was happen with the characters now.
3. Love Interest. No insta-love. Instead this love grew over three books and left me very satisfied I like that despite all the trials they went through, they always made it.
4. Parent Involvement. You know, not that many YA books have their parents involved. I like that in this story, the parents helped. They were involved in every step of the way. I adored that.
5. Ending. It's not a HEA but it left off on a realistic note that I can enjoy.
The ending to a great series is satisfying and fun. Impressive and action-packed, The Savage Grace fulfills an ending that is intense. Consuming and moving, The Savage Grace is great!

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.
