Review: The Lost Saint
The Lost Saint by Bree Despain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It’s ten months since the end of “The Dark Devine”. Everyone is looking for Jude…especially Grace’s Dad. He’s been spending more time away than home. Meanwhile Grace’s Mom cycles between extreme lows and manic highs. Grace is trying to get Daniel to train her to use her powers, but he is reluctant.
Grace makes a new friend in Talbot who is more than happy to train Grace…he takes his “Hounds of Heaven” demon killing responsibilities very seriously. It’s also painfully obvious that he has feelings for Grace that go beyond Teacher/Pupil. Meanwhile Daniel is keeping secrets from Grace which is driving a wedge between them.
So many of the reviewers, below, thought this book was better than “The Dark Devine”…It was definitely more action packed, and built upon the mythology revealed in Devine…but I think I prefer the first story. As is typical, Grace and Daniel are past the blush of “new love” so they have moved onto lying and keeping secrets from one another to save the other. Cliched, I know…but the story was good, if a touch on the predictable side. And the cliffhanger was a good one! I am looking forward to see how the series finishes.
