Synopsis:A family destroyed. A love threatened. An enemy returns. Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with he 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.


*shakes hands desperately beginning to plead* Bree... your killing me here. Please please please. Too much background. Good storyline. But it focuses too much on the first book. I loved the first book. But honestly this was a sequel problem that constantly occurs. A hundred pages wasted on catching the rest of the newer readers up and refreshing the old ones. I loved. I repeat LOVED The Dark Divine, and I really did enjoy this book. But this is a moment of EPIC facepalm. You had a great hook. Made me hate myself for starting it in Geometry. But it took too long for us to get to know Talbot, to find out about Jude and urgh... I dont want to mention the usual "I know you hate me but lets be friends again" thing....No superhero stuff. Other than those few things (I cant help it. Best friends annoy me) I loved the book. Honestly. So amazing. Im dying for the next one. Especially after an ending like THAT. Secrets oh secrets! I love this book Bree. Just irritated the usual sequel mistakes  occurred. Hoping you dont pull an Eclipse and make sequel mistakes on the third book. Great story line. Great everything. Love. Love. Love.
