The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

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. Desparate 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.

Paranormal books will be the death of me. I loved The Dark Divine. I couldn’t get enough of it, but I could have done without reading The Lost Saint. It was addicting and it was full of action, which I love. But it seemed like it was just another paranormal book. I’m sick of just normal run-of-the-mills paranormal books. I want something that pops! Something that isn’t reminiscent of Twilight and other Paranormals that are popular.
The ending of The Lost Saint surprised me a lot. I think the ending was my favorite part of the whole book because I wasn’t completely expecting it. The Lost Saint was predictable. It was a good sequel, but there wasn’t anything special about it.
People who really enjoyed The Dark Divine will most likely enjoy The Lost Saint. I just don’t think it was my particular cup of tea.

I'm sorry you didn't like it as much as you thought you would.

I just recently read and reviewed the Dark Divine and I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to read the second installment. Hopefully it's good, though I doubt it will be as good as the Dark Divine.

Also, aren't the covers just so beautiful?!
