Review: The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

Potential Spoiler For Dark Divine Alert

The Lost Saint by Bree Despain is the sequel to The Dark Divine. Grace is flexing her new werewolf powers, but also growing slightly apart from boyfriend, Daniel. Meanwhile, Jude, Grace’s brother is still missing. The Divine family is on the search for him. To further complicate matters, Grace is growing very close to a mysterious stranger.

Filled with tension, The Lost Saint is worthy of it’s predecessor. I know I was on edge quite a few times, as I could tell a person was bad, but could not predict what they would do. Plus, well you know Grace is a teenager, so she’s at that stage where she is exploring her options and well, bad is sometimes quite appealing. Either way, I KIND of liked the love triangle. Although, we all know there’s no real contest. DANIEL KALBI HOLLAAAA. Despite the lack of contest, there’s still sexual tension, but no actual sex occurs. Plenty of kisses though.

I tend to harp a lot on character development. I thought we saw more development of Grace. I do like her character arc so far. I mean, she’s pushing her limits. She’s constantly being watched, because she’s the pastor’s daughter, which is a different dynamic for me. I like that Grace’s reputation as being the daughter of a pillar of the community is further explored. I like that in this book Grace takes on some independence. I like that she thinks for herself and doesn’t always toe the line with orders she has been given.

I would have liked more about Grace’s father, because he is an interesting character. He risks so much to save his son and really gives a shiz about his family. Yet, he’s also got faults. I mean, he gets so caught up with what’s going on with Jude that he pretty much ignores everyone else in the family.

The pacing of The Lost Saint by Bree DespainΒ is break neck. It’s one of the last books I read while on my vacation, because I thought it would take me a long time to read. Nope. I think I read it in a day. Seriously, good book. I guess I just need to trust that Despain will provide a good story and not be skeptical of the amount of pages.
