A Prodigal Son


A Dangerous Love


A Deadly Secret

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.~Goodreads
Fantastic. Paranormal. Romance.
That is all. End of Review.


Nah... I’m just playin’! The Dark Divine is fast paced, thrilling & a little scary. It had me not only sitting on the edge of my bed, desk chair and toilet seat, it also had me cheering for my home state again! Score 2 for Minnesota!

So that leads me to A) Why isn’t Minnesota actually as cool as Bree Despain describes it?
And B) Why have I never ran into Daniel Kalbi?!
Oh yea... this is a work of fiction. *sad face*

But anyway. .. no more moping! The characters in this book were awesome. Especially Grace & Daniel. Grace is a strong willed teenager that struggles with the fact her family is put under a spotlight. She wants to live her own life & find out things on her own, but with her dad being the town’s pastor she ends up feeling held back and torn on how she should act. 

Then Daniel comes to town & EEEP! He is just one big mystery that is all witty lines & dark sexy eyes! Ah, LOVE! I like how him & Grace have a past. It’s like a mini-reunion but things have changed & Daniel’s not telling, but Grace is determined to get to the bottom of it! So i pretty much loved how their relationship developed, getting to know each again! I personally loved Daniel from the very first time him appears in the book. but other characters seem to have a slight problem with him, like Grace’s older brother Jude.

Jude is wonderful.. . at first. He is the protective older brother, who does charity & helps at the church, plus he is hot. No denying that! But as the storyline progresses we fine some things out about him that aren’t very nice. . . or protective. Yikes. Read this book to find out what I mean! (tease! I know!)

The only thing that slightly bugged me was April. I just questioned her friendship at times. I feel like she was only there for Grace to get close to Jude. I hope she is better in The Lost Saint…which I need to read asap!

If you like hot, mysterious boys with devious smiles & the nice girls who fall for them, then The Dark Divine is for you!




SPOLIER: HOW FREAKIN’ SWEET & GENIUS IS DANIEL’S MOONSTONE NECKLACE!? SO WHEN THERE IS A FULL MOON HE HAS A PIECE OF MOON CLOSE TO HIM TO HELP CONTROL HIS WOLF TENDENCIES?? AMAZE. JUST AMAZE! HOW THE HECK DID BREE EVEN THINK OF THAT!?
