The Dark Divine by Bree Despain

This book took "it" to the next level. I don't know what "it" is . but The Dark Divine is practically bathing in "it". I am sure of one thing though, and that is that "it" is a good thing.

Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared--the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in his own blood--but she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night held. The memories her family has tried to bury resurface when Daniel returns, three years later, and enrolls in Grace and Jude's high school. Despite promising Jude she'll stay away, Grace cannot deny her attraction to Daniel's shocking artistic abilities, his way of getting her to look at the world from new angles, and the strange, hungry glint in his eyes. The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, as her actions stir resentment in Jude and drive him to embrace the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind the boy's dark secret...and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it--her soul.

I loved The Dark Divine; it was addicting, beautifully written, and something I will always remember. Bree Despain is an author that you must watch out for, she is sure to be a hit!
The characters in this book were incredibly realistic. They had understandable and real-life emotions. Daniel was possibly my favorite character... he seemed real, mysterious, and bad. *swoon*

The Dark Divine is a book everyone should read. it is simply amazing and a novel the nobody should miss. I would go out and buy a copy at the next possible chance!
