Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her - not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

Bree Despain delivers sizzling romance and thrilling action in the heart-pounding sequel to the The Dark Divine.
Review: I loved The Dark Divine and I was eager to continue Grace and Daniel’s adventure in The Lost Saint. TLS begins some time after TDD ended. Daniel is now helping Grace control her powers and become stronger. Though he doesn’t want her to use her powers, he wants Grace to be able to control it. This is sometimes very hard when people are being killed again and the absence of Jude is broken when Jude tells Grace not to trust him. Where is Jude and who shouldn’t Grace trust begins to be the main focus point for a lot of the book.

I liked the plot but it reminded me a lot of TDD, which bugged me a bit. Talbot, a new character, was rather interesting and he actually helped move the plot along. Other characters contributed heavily to the plot and honestly, I think it was the characters that made the plot as awesome as it was. I was also surprised at some of the things because I wasn’t really expecting it.

Daniel was rather annoying with his bi-polar way of acting. He wants Grace to be safe but he doesn’t want to teach her to fight. I did understand his actions somewhat but his whole secrecy thing really, really irked me. Grace was considerably better in this book as she learns more about what is happening.

A great way to continue an awesome story, The Lost Saint is dark, secretive, sometimes funny and sometimes sad, it’s a great read!

Overall: 4/5
Cover Comments: 5/5—I love how it sticks to the first cover and how it just changes colors and which side it's on.
