The door frame was splintered and cracked. Esperemos que la segunda entrega sea mejor I would rather read a poorly written original story than one with pretty packaging that’s a total rip-off. Despain’s telling us that you don’t have to make your characters angry, bitter, cussing Goth kids to tell a story about pain, and redemption, that teenagers and adults can relate to.

I felt that Despain just left it towards the big “climatic” scenes, fark we were all are meant to be like: Some of you may complain and say that isn’t good enough. It’s annoying– girl, make up your mind! Yes, there are religious elements in this story, but I suppose I missed the memo that decided that was a bad thing. View all 7 comments.

The Dark Divine Series by Bree Despain

I thought perhaps my assumption was wrong, because it felt too obvious, but nope This one has officially made my “no-dice” bookshelf on GR. At first glance this looked like another typical mysterious-bad-boy novel that usually makes me cringe — why do we insist on parading these horrible jerks before young women as model friends and lovers? My one complaint concerns the relationship between Grace and Daniel. Paranormalcy Paranormalcybook 1 Kiersten White. Now what Daniel has is a hereditary thing, so I don’t know where Grace gets the right to be so sorrowful and blaming herself for it.


However, when I read more about his backstory: I like the change of having him be both new and old.

Everything else is emotionless filler, making this relatively short book a chore to slog through. The role Grace’s parents played was pretty solid, and I could definitely see them as real people. For the most part I really loved The Dark Divine.

I have to say, that I read the book in a day and I couldn’t put it down. Plot or the lack of one and other Writing Stuff While I was reading this book, the only constant thought I had was: Daniel started out as stereotypical, but as the plot finally built and his background was finally revealed, he turned into a much more believable character. I enjoyed their relationship immensely. Why couldn’t I stop myself from creating this mess?

But here are the biggest ways that The Dark Divine is unlike any of its similar sister novels — Grace is a church kid, and darn it, she’s cool with that.

The book also drak bonus marks for having a clear and very satisfying ending. I really relish the opportunity to get to know authors better through books. I really liked this book, and it doesn’t hurt that it takes place in my home state ; A must read, the duvine is eyebrow raising and will leave you wanting to snatch up The Lost Saint right after finishing it.

We forgive them because they need it—because we need it.


Jude is a really interesting character, too. May 03, Joyzi rated it liked it Recommends it for: The plot is unsteady.

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain – book review

Realmente esperaba mucho de esta novela. To me, she was dull and boring though Bella fans may find the appeal, I’m not a Bella fan myself I did like Daniel a lot and Jude too. They’re going to make a movie out of this book too. He has a fractured skull. It would be cute if she didn’t come off ddivine holier-than-thou. Daniel isn’t much better. Nope, I will not touch the rest of this ‘series’ with a ten foot pole.

She has a friend who is kind of a synonym for air-head. The characters were well-constructed.

As I go along reading it I have no idea where the story would go and at first Djvine thought that this is a non-fantasy book, but kind of a romance YA book. So if you love these books you will probably like this one too. She was honest and I just found it refreshing.

She waited to long to explain what was going on. This hasn’t been released yet and I’m already dying for the sequel.

Despain managed to withhold just enough information from Grace and us to make us desperate to find out more.

Also, rape is NOT a plot device to be used lightly, which Despain does– there’s no follow up.
