This is the first book I read about werewolves. The fact is, I didn't realized that this book is related to werewolves at all. I started to wonder why it's called The Dark Divine and the definition of the cover. Anyway, let's begin with the review.

The Plot. The book really gets me intrigued. I loved this book so unexpectedly and surprisingly! The storyline was very different, it is like a script that determines the actual scenes like: Lunch Time, Dinner, At school something like that and it was newly fresh for me.

The thing I really love about this book is at the art class! Ohhhh... I do entirely love things connected in art and this one really gets me driving to read it! I was speechless! Goodness, I had a lost for words this time. *laughs* The details of this book are well constructed and definitive, I was able to pick up and understand everything. Of course, in every book they never lost of humor, drama and suspense, and this one carried all the way! There's this surprising revelation that makes my eyes wide. You'll be too when you read this one!

I finished this book in one sitting and to myself, I was so surprised! Awesome! :]

The Characters. I do love the characters in this book. Grace Divine, Daniel Kalbi, Jude Divine so on, everyone has it parts and story to share. And for Daniel Kalbi? He's my favorite of all. He's so intensely dark though with kind heart. It giggles me when Grace and him were together, especially at the tree part. It was great and I fell in-love with them. Though, I haven't expected it to be werewolves-like story as I said earlier, but I instantly loved this one!

Tiny Flaw. Does it? Yes, in my opinion. The cover. I don't get it at all but I do like it. It was sexy and eye-catching. Though I don't get the point of it, maybe there has a reason and I wanted to find out. Help me out here guys! :]

If you want to read something very intense suspense and dark action, you'll be needing to get a copy of this one. It is surely a worthy book and you won't be sorry. I do recommend this one for every people who loves werewolves. I'll be getting myself the next copy of this story, The Lost Saint, I wanted to know what happened next! :]

So glad to know you enjoyed this book :) Like you, I loved Daniel... he was my favorite character in the book! & to be honest, I also don't get the meaning behind the cover? I'm guessiong those are Grace's legs, but what are they trying to say? regardless, TDD was a GREAT read! Can't wait to see what you think of The Lost Saint.
