Bree Despain delivers sizzling romance and thrilling action in the heart-pounding sequel to the The Dark Divine.
As you know, I reviews The Dark Divine (#1) earlier this week. Click here for that review. I suggest if you haven't read The Dark Divine you don't read this review. It may contain spoilers to the first book! Sorry!
The Lost Saint unfortunately disappointed me. Everything I liked about the first book disappeared.
Grace's family is ripped to shreds. Jude disappears. There's a dreaded love triangle. Daniel starts acting like an a-hole.
This just didn't live up to my expectations. Grace also become's more whiney and reckless. She doesn't quite think about what she's doing.
Grace's parents are very dysfunctional in The Lost Saint, unlike the Dark Divine. Grace's mom seems to be exhibiting some type of PTSD or Bipolar-like symptoms. Which seems very strange because her mother was very rational in the first book.
Also, Grace's dad becomes obsessive over finding the 'cure.' How bizarre, considering he cares so much about his home life.
Also, the romance is so blah in this book. It's non-existant, unlike the previous book which focused on intense love.
Talbott was someone I disliked through the whole book. I sort of predicted the ending when it came to him. And Daniel.
For all of these reasons...I don't think I'll be reading the final book, The Savage Grace. Even though I wanted to love this book...I just didn't. Hopefully I didn't ruin anyone's plans to read this book!
