What its about:

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.

What I thought:

This is the second time I've read The Dark Divine, but I realized I never wrote a review the first time. 

The first time I read TDD it took me  about 3 hours and I read it straight through unable to put it down.  So my intentions in reading it this time was to slow down and really take my time, but again I couldn't put it down. 

I love the character Grace.  She feels like someone who could truly be friends with everyone. I love how Bree is able to make Grace feel like a real teenager and still give her great values and morals.  And of coarse who couldn't love Daniel.  You can feel his struggle and growth as he better learns who he is and learns to accept his feelings for Grace, and her feelings for him. 

I love the sweet love story that's intertwined with the twists and turns of this story.  The way Bree is capable of writing details and story lines, is what keeps me reading nonstop, even though it invokes a lot of jealousy in me from a writing stand point, I absolutely love her style!

TDD is definitely one of my favorite books and I can't wait to hear what's in store for Grace and Daniel next!  The Lost Saint comes on on Tuesday so make sure you pick it up along with TDD if you haven't read it yet! You'll be glad you did!  Also if you live in the Salt lake area, I expect to see you at the release party on Tuesday at Kings English, 7pm!

I Give The Dark Divine:
