The Lost Saint by Bree Despain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book 2 in the Dark Divine series
I actually liked this book a little better than the first one, as there was a bit more action in this book. Grace is discovering her powers and testing out what she can do, and while they are still in love Daniel feels he can no longer protect her and starts becoming even more secretive and distant. Enter Talbot, who befriends Grace at a club, understands what she is going through and tries to help her. Talbot is a mysterious character and it takes us a while to really find out anything about him, but I loved the tension between him and Grace (and I love a good love triangle!) Grace's goody goody-ness actually became a little annoying in this book though, and I did want to scream at "stand up for yourself" a couple of times, especially with her mother. Grace is the angelic pastor's daughter, and willingly does her chores and obeys her parents. Grace's brother Jude is missing and the hunt for him is the biggest part of the storyline and the reason Grace is constantly in trouble! The relationship between Grace and Daniel is very intense but sweet, and the character of Talbot is interesting because we get to see a completely different side to Grace.
There are plenty of twists and turns and unexpected surprises in this book, as well as lots of action and romance. The ending definitely leaves us hanging and I now have to wait until next year for book 3!
