Review: The Lost Saint

Genre: Young Adult-Paranormal/Fantasy
Author: Bree Despain
Publisher: Egmont USA
Release Date: December 28, 2010
Book: Bought

"The non-stop sequel to The Dark Divine delivers an even hotter romance and more thrilling action than Bree Despain's first novel.  Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi.  She gave her soul to the wolf to save him and lost her beloved mother.  When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do.  She must become a Hound of Heaven.  Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot - a newcomer to town who promises her 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 realizing that an old enemy has returned and deadly trap is about to be sprung."

Is there some kind of rule that say the second book has to be an emotional roller coaster?
This one was filled with drama and major emotions. Grace saved Daniel. Thinking everything was okay, things all of the sudden began to change. Daniel becomes more distant leaving a wide open space for a new boy to come in. Grace is lonely and that is bad. Grace begins to lies and falls into a trap that she doesn't see.

First off, major emotions. Poor Grace. After all that she has done, Daniel goes and treats her badly. He stops answering calls, stood her up on dates, and just become different. Grace becomes agitated. She is hurt a lot and let her emotions play her. Instead of doing rational things, she allows her emotions to over run and is always putting herself in danger. I was glad for one that she wanted to be strong, that she can prove that she didn't need Daniel. But I felt like Grace only responded that way because of Daniel. His fault.

Daniel leaves for the same reason all guys leave in the second book. They don't want to hurt the girl, they are better off without them, blah, blah, freaking blah.  Seriously, I'm so over this plot. Daniel is dumb and need to get his head out of his butt.

Even though the plot is overplayed, I still enjoyed it. The writing and the way the emotions played out was good. The characters were brought to life as the emotions flowed freely through her writing. The new boy in the book made for a great change. He certainly was cute and an eye opener for Grace. Although I am sad that it had to end badly. The secrets in this book did have me gasping. I couldn't believe the things that were happening. I was just taken back and WOWed.

As I said before I didn't really like the plot between Grace and Daniel. But the rest of the book was good. The family betrayal I had not seen and I admit I was even hurt by it. It was shocking and was good.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. Emotional roller coaster aside, I loved this book! I thought that it was a gazillion times better than the first... As for the end? What a shock! I cannot wait to see how Bree plays that out in the next book. Great review!

  2. I have yet to read this series, it looks just ok for me though =/

  3. I haven't read this series, but it looks like I might need to read it. Loved the paragraph about Daniel. :D

  4. I really need to read this book! Got it from the library but TDD was just okay for me so I'm having a hard time committing. :)

  5. I actually just bought this book. :-)

  6. I really enjoyed this book. I thought Grace's character really evolved from the first book. I did miss Daniel, but am interested to see where the plot will go in book 3! :)
