Summary: A family destroyed. A love threatened. An enemy returns.

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process.

Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot, a newcomer to town. But as the two grow closer, Grace's relationship with Daniel is put in danger - in more ways than one.

Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her - not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

Bree Despain delivers sizzling romance and thrilling action in the heart-pounding sequel to the The Dark Divine.

My Thoughts: I loved The Dark Divine, so I was more than excited to read The Lost Saint. While I did enjoy it a lot, I didn’t love it quite as much. Maybe there was just too much of  gap in between reading them, I’m not sure.

We are back with Grace Divine, and her boyfriend and true love Daniel. She has cured him of his wolf curse and he is now fully human.

There are also a lot of old characters in this but also a new guy named Talbot. Talbot starts training Grace and he says he is like her so she feels a great bond with him.

Is it bad that part of me wanted her to be with Talbot instead of Daniel? I still like Daniel but I just could feel that chemistry between those two.  And Daniel has more jerk like tendencies in this book.  Why not just explain what is going on with yourself instead of drifting away?

Of course Grace is still looking for her brother Jude and that is where most of the plot lays.  And Grace has so many struggles she has to deal with on her own.

I did like the funny moments with April. She’s always a funny kind of girl and makes things interesting.

Uh, I also wasn’t thrilled with all the religious tones in this one. It just seemed like more than the first book, which didn’t really bug me at all.

Grace is a strong character. She refuses to give herself to the wolf, she wants to bring her brother back safely, and keeps herself in check with the boys.

After reading this book, I’m left with wanting Grace to admit her feelings for Talbot, and wanting to know what is going to happen with Daniel and with Jude now that things are changing for everyone.  Glad the third book is already released so I don’t have to wait forever to find out what is going to happen.

Overall: The Lost Saint just felt really long, a lot of details that didn’t really need to be added.  While I did enjoy this book a lot, I hope I like The Savage Grace more like I liked The Dark Divine.

Cover: Love it! Love these colors, they are so bright!
