Peeps who don’t mind rip-offs.

I wanted to know what was going on with Jude when Grace gave up seeing Daniel for him. I remember thinking, “yeah, definitely!

Their relationship plays a huge role in the book yet it was dar, with great care. I know this cannot be just me, but did every single scene have to come under some stupid and asinine subheading?

Then one day a new guy appears. Dlvine hangs out with bad people, gets into passionate rages, and pisses off her parents when Grace mentions his name. The religious views of heaven VS hell are discussed. I love how he was introduced by taking her art supplies then asking for a kiss for their return and then in the memory he did pretty much the same thing, So cute!

She let everyone else make her decisions for her. I feel like I just tapped into this world and its going to take me to interesting and exciting places.

It’s plainly obvious that something’s wrong with him, but no one seems to notice.

The Dark Divine (Dark Divine, book 1) by Bree Despain

My final reasons for disliking The Dark Divine are incredibly petty, but worth mentioning simply so I can get them off my chest: This book is promising, but a li’l bit disappointing.


Pete is the character I really felt bad for. They abandoned him a few years back. I was disappointed that the book’s heroine fell into so many of the pothols associated with paranormal YA heroines – she had a lot of interesting traits, certainly more than many other heroines, but they all seemed xivine be shoved aside the moment the love story came into it. Not that I’m endorsing all teens to pull an Eric Cartmanbut I do expect some independent thought. When a child hood friend, and someone who was once consider divinw of the family returns nothing will be the same.

And I wanted to know more about Daniel and what it was he wanted to tell her.

Why now, after all this time? While Grace’s older brother Jude demands she avoid Daniel, and her parents appear to be avoiding the entire situation, Grace falls back on her old affections for her childhood friend and determines to use her dad’s pastoral “care for those in need” motto with Daniel, too. There were chapters where I felt 2 stars were too divvine. Like I said before I have to be honest, by about halfway through the book I was enjoying this one but fairly convinced I knew what was coming.

The Dark Divine (The Dark Divine, #1) by Bree Despain

She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process. Grace was an extremely passive protagonist who elicited little sympathy from me.

She’s sheltered; she wouldn’t know what Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Gaiman’s Sandman would look like if they bit her, so every monstrous revelation is doubly new and shocking to her.

I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again. I guessed it about halfway through, though it wasn’t near as obvious as the “mysterious” event that made Daniel disappear. That was unclear to me. 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.


Bree rediscovered her childhood love for creating stories when she took a semester off college to write and direct plays for at-risk, inner-city teens from Philadelphia and New York. I agree, but I argue that because this book is so painstakingly dull and hardly anything happens in this book – I didn’t take that much away from it. OR jumping into Grace’s bedroom uninvited I don’t know why so many people like him. Did she know his secret?

Of course, you asked this question 4 years ago, so I’m assuming you’ve decided by now. He paused for a moment.

For that, I’m rating 2. She’d known him almost forever, but then he disappeared–and now brde back. The books just drips with it’s own self importance. Quotes from The Dark Divine. Simply put, The Dark Divine exceeded all my expectations. The book also gets bonus marks for having a clear and very satisfying ending. Jul 20, Sab H. Does this book have any inappropriate scenes or bad language in it?

Their interactions were really wonderful I have no idea why anyone would publish a book entirely in bold, but I hope this is the first and last time they do so.

For example, do you seek a book that’s full of cliches and is a watered-down version of a watered-down version of a watered-down version?
