Have you ever read a book that was incredibly awesome yet you can't review it because words will never be enough only high pitched squeals are? For me that book is The Dark Divine by Bree Despain. Daniel *sigh* he is bad boy heaven for me. I love them dark and brooding. He was nice and swoon worthy. I'd say on the yummy scale he was tippy top top!
I liked Grace off and on. Let me explain. When she was making Daniel happy I loved her, when she wasn't-I HATED HER FREAKING GUTS! All in all the characters were very well rounded. I liked most of them actually no I didn't, I liked Grace's younger siblings and dad but Jude who is her older brother, her mom and her best friend April I hates them, a lots. Not that they gave me reason I just really did. Don I heartz him. He was just a touch of sweetness and innocence.
Bree Despain also told a story that unfolded very nicely. It was very well timed. Everything came out at its right time but she dropped hints of the outcome from the very beginning.
YA romance magic? TDD has it. Page 199 had be lightheaded and screaming, "THAT IS SO FREAKING HOT, sweet, romantic!" I actually contemplated rushing into the nearest forest and demanding that the first wolf turn into a man and cuddle me in his freaking arms. Then I realized that it would sooner bite me than love me also how painful and embarrassing it would be to explain what exactly I was trying to do. So I decided to pass on that idea. I suppose I will be back in Daniel’s arms when The Lost Saint is released. The best things in life are worth waiting for; besides there are plenty of book boys to fall for in the mean time, right. But Daniel will always be special to me.
