The Dark Divine by: Bree Despain

Publication Date: December 2009

Overview: 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 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 boys' 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.

My thoughts: This one was frustrating. One because they paint Pete as evil, and OK, I know he gets handsy or whatever. But really what teenage boy isn't handsy at some point.
Then they place Don, a well meaning mentally challenged guy in the picture. And he he only gets to give us hints of things before he dies.
The Divine family is quite the group! But you have to love the dynamic they have. Daniel and Grace, I love the story of 2 childhood friends who fall in love with one another. Even if they have challenges to face I still want them to be together in the end.
I believe that there is more to Grace being bitten they they think. 

My rating: 3 stars
