A prodigal son
A dangerous love
A deadly secret . . .
I stood back and watched his movements. Daniel had that way about him that could shut me down in an instant. . . . I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again. “Tell me . . . I mean . . . why did you come back? Why now, after all this time?”
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 really held. And when Daniel returns three years later, Grace can no longer deny her attraction to him, despite promising Jude she’ll stay away.
As Grace gets closer to Daniel, her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind Jude and Daniel’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.
This is not just your typical “good girl falls for bad boy” story. Grace is not a weak character. Her major flaw is innocence but she makes up for it with being stubborn yet open-minded when necessary. You can’t help but feel for Daniel and what he had to endure growing up. He is fighting to prove he’s better than where he came from. Throughout the book, I really felt the characters’ emotions & was deeply drawn into the amazing story Bree created. Although much is wrapped up plot-wise & there’s a satisfying ending, you can’t help but wonder what happens next and it’s easy to see that Bree has so much more in store for these characters.
I give The Dark Divine 5 out of 5 bookies.
