Review: The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

Book: The Lost Saint by Bree Despain
Pages: 416
Publisher: Egmont
Release Date: December 28, 2010
Source: Bought
Grade: A
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.  Readers, raveous for more Grace and Daniel, will be itching to sink their teeth into The Lost Saint.
My Thoughts: 

  I reviewed The Dark Divine a little while ago and since this is such an awesome series, I figured I’d review book two too.
  One word: Phantasmal. Most sequels that have romance in them are hard for me to read because the characters usually go through a break up where afterword the protagonist is depressed and won’t do anything with life until their lover comes back. Yeah, that didn’t happen with this book *hurray*. I have to say that I actually like The Lost Saint more than The Dark Divine. Bree’s writing seemed to get a lot better and she was already an awesome writer, especially when writing about her characters.
 Grace Divine showed her skills in this book, I mean she was totally kick-ass! SPOILER I liked how she didn’t let Daniel’s ignoring her and not trusting her get in the way and she still loved him no matter what, but still did her training with Talbot SPOILER OVER Daniel wasn’t really in a lot of the book, but I didn’t feel abandoned because *tah-dah* out popped Talbot. I thought Talbot was a great character and I liked how he and Grace meshed.
  The Lost Saint is definitely my favorite sequel of 2010 and I can’t wait until the third and FINAL book comes out! If you don’t read this series out of my recommendation, at least read it because of the pretty cover.

Grade: A


  1. Looking forward to this one, really enjoyed the first. Great review! :)

  2. Ok so... I really, really liked The Dark Divine and am anticipating reading The Lost Saint. So I sort of skimmed over your review and tried to resist super hard to highlight that blacked out spoiler. I must remain strong. :x I'm totally going to trust you on TLS being better than TDD. I seriously hope it is! I'm anxiously awaiting my copy to arrive from the mail. COME FASTER! xD Great review, m'dear ♥
