Rating
The exciting sequel to paranormal romance The Dark Divine, from Bree Despain. True Love's First Kill ...Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure the boy she loves - Daniel. She gave her soul to save him, but in the process she lost her beloved brother, Jude. Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Tal - a newcomer to town who promises that he can help her be a hero. But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her relationship with Daniel begins to crumble. Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace becomes prideful in her new abilities - not realising that an old enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung. Join Grace in the enthralling story of The Lost Saint, perfect for fans of Twilight and the latest trend for vampire books and werewolf books. Praise for The Dark Divine: 'A book that had everything I wanted: a bad boy, a complicated romance, and a mystery that made my heart beat double-time right up to the last page. Darkly comic and surprising' - Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times best-selling author of Hush, Hush.

Reviews

Gr 9 Up-After offering herself as a sacrifice in order to rid her boyfriend of his werewolf curse, high school senior Grace Divine has absorbed some of his lycanthropic abilities. As she trains with Daniel in an attempt to achieve mastery over her powers, she meets another young man who urges her to embrace the anger that triggers her strength and encourages her to join him in the fight against evil demons and vampires. Push back from Daniel, her family, and a visiting pastor lead her to question the benevolence of her new friend; however, Grace's passion to save her brother-whom she fears has been absorbed into a cohort of evil supernatural creatures-leads her to defy those closest to her. Like A Dark Divine (Egmost USA, 2009), The Lost Saint is a lengthy supernatural novel that, at its core, is a traditional romance. Chapters further divided into sections headed, "Later That Same Day" and "After Lunch" ensure that no detail of Grace's life-including her obsessive ruminations on Daniel and their relationship-goes undescribed, and it is this content that makes the book difficult to read and less satisfying than, for example, Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver (Scholastic, 2009). A religious tone distinguishes this novel from others of its ilk and complicates the discussion of war and retribution-supernatural or otherwise. That said, it is not distinguished by its pacing because of its superfluous narrative content.-Amy S. Pattee, Simmons College, Boston (c) Copyright 2011.
