The Dark Divine by Bree Despain Content Rating and Review | The Literate Mother

It’s always a plus to have grounded, practical characters with values and a good head on their shoulders. That’s as far as her reasoning goes.

Now, before I continue – I just wanted to say the worst thing about this book – like many others – is that this book had potential to be great.

Characters Grace is the main character. And even if some of the plot, including Grace’s name, reminded me of my much-loved copy of Maggie Stiefvater’s novel ShiverThe Dark Divine is an entirely different mood. The contrast their original nature The Dark Divine is truly dfspain amazing book!

I loved how family played a big part in the story, and how there was a set of diverse characters that made the mystery in this book authentic, and kept me guessing at who the baddy was until the end! Heartbreaking, for me, because in the midst of a paranormal story, these accounts of rejection and neglect are palpably realistic. As Grace gets pulled deeper and deeper into his world, she finds herself face to face with the terrifying secret he’s been hiding from her all along.

The memories her family has tried to bury resurface when Daniel returns, three years later, and enroll 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.

Just how far should grace and forgiveness go, when there’s family at stake and blood on someone’s hands?


Daniel is abused as a child.

But she’s still relatable, if for no other reason than those honest moments when she’s thinking in the paradigm of her religious views, and most protagonists in YA fiction are trying to figure out some digine of paradigm, too. Mangled bodies are turning up everywhere. Every time I learned about what had happened to him or how he felt I just wanted to cry usually did.

Sure they give us an actually interesting premise to go by – but they don’t do anything with it until the very end of the book. At least THAT made some sense? And all of a sudden he starts dating April, who he’d barely spoken to before? Don’t even get me started on the whole mythology.

There’s a reason w Grace Divine is bossy, rebellious, stubborn, and yet a total difine girl – after all, she is the daughter of the local pastor. To which I say: But all in all I like it and I finished it in one day and definitely better than Specials.

I swear that you could just cut the entire first half of this book out and you would lose nothing.
