The Dark Divine - Bree Despain

Monday, June 28, 2010
Grace Divine—daughter of the local pastor—always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared and her brother Jude came home covered in his own blood.

Now that Daniel's returned, Grace must choose between her growing attraction to him and her loyalty to her brother.

As Grace gets closer to Daniel, she learns the truth about that mysterious night and how to save the ones she loves, but it might cost her the one thing she cherishes most: her soul. 

It took me a while to get into this book because Grace annoyed me a bit. She had a few Mary Sue like qualities, but being a preacher's daughter, I guess that she couldn't help that. I put the novel down and came back to it a couple weeks later. I was a bit intrigued by Daniel, but I wasn't compulsively turning pages to find out more. Some of the other characters fell a bit flat for me, like her best friend...who basically ditched her when she got what she wanted.

The way the author had history/mythological feel in the books was neat, and the way she weaved them in didn't feel boring to me. The ending threw me for a spin and I appreciated that, since I can usually predict the ending of books.

Overall I enjoyed it and will get the second book, but it fell a little flat for me.
