WOW! Talk about an emotional roller coaster.
I was a fan of The Dark Divine, but I have to say that I think The Lost Saint may have topped it. And how perfect was the title "The Lost Saint" such perfect metaphorical use. It could have easily described several characters in the novel. Genius!
Despain does a wonderful job intertwining the mythology within the aspects of religion. It's a refreshing experience.
I must admit I was expecting the conflict between Grace and Daniel, but it didn't exactly play out like I anticipated it would. It seems like there is a theme in YA... there is alway conflict in the second novel. Surprisingly I found myself forgiving Grace for her actions and being upset with Daniel for the lack of his! Which when I take a step back and look at it, doesn't make any sense at all. They were both keeping things from each other, and neither was less at fault. I think that just shows how truly talented Despain is... she was totally manipulating me!
The Lost Saint was action packed... there is something happening at every turn and Grace is constantly learning something new. I felt like this whole other world opened up to us in this novel. Demons... and death, wolf packs and alphas... wow. Let's put another WOW, in there.
And let's not forget the ending. I think my mouth about hit the floor with that one.
Overall, The Lost Saint will not disappoint fans of The Dark Divine. You'll be drooling for more! Eh, that was a bad pun... You'll be begging for more! Ha, I crack myself up. You know, because those of the canine persuasion, drool and beg...? Anyway, this is a captivating continuation to a well written and unique series and I can't wait to read the next book!

The Lost Saint is even better than the first book. It's full of fun twists and turns and ends with a shocking cliffhanger, which is my favorite kind. I still don't get the legs on the cover but this is a great story and I look forward to getting my hands on the next one. It's a really fun series.

When Grace Divine saved Daniel from the curse of the werewolf, she was bitten by her brother, Jude, and was burdened with the curse, as well. Now, Daniel is training her to balance the wolf side of her self, her superpower side, and her normal human side. But when Daniel becomes distant and doesn't think it's a good idea to train anymore, Grace turns to a new guy in her life.
Talbot thinks Grace needs to train and helps her learn how to use her power. And all Grace wants is to use that power to find her brother. But using her wolf-ish powers can have the very effect that she doesn't want to have happen.
I have a truly horrible memory when it comes to remembering plots of books and movies. And while sometimes, once I start to read a sequel, it will all come back to me, unfortunately it didn't happen with this book. So after a couple of chapters I had to go look up a spoiler summary of THE DARK DIVINE. And once I did that, I remembered why I had loved the first book so much.
This book was a roller coaster of emotions. I loved Daniel and Grace together, and then I didn't like Daniel because of his behavior and I was starting to like Talbot more. There were times I felt both hopeful and hopeless about Jude. Yeah, I was never sure which guy to trust and like. It made for an intriguing and gripping story.
I don't think I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first in the series, but I think that's because Daniel and Grace's relationship was kind of strained in this book. And I felt that there was a lot more action in the book and not so much a character-driven storyline. But that doesn't make it bad. It definitely makes it a gripping read and one that I couldn't put down. And the end...Oh boy, I definitely didn't see that one coming! And how I want the next book now so that I can find out what happens next!
Once again, the cover is absolutely gorgeous. Both the cover for THE DARK DIVINE and the cover for THE LOST SAINT are so totally striking. I just love the coloring!

3.5 stars. Honestly, I do not know why I am giving this book a 3.5 rating when it deserves a slightly lower one.
Not to jump on the "let's bash paranormal romance by labeling it as a Twilight ripoff" bandwagon, but I have to admit, The Lost Saint was exactly the same as New Moon. Once in love boyfriend grows distant with a mysterious secret, girl is completely clueless and relentlessly questioning, new guy shows up to test the girl's affection for the original guy... yes, it is all here.
For some reason, I still liked this book though. Probably not because of its originality, because it barely has any, but some mysterious factor I cannot seem to place. Maybe just the overall story itself.
Well, I am too tired to provide adequate reasoning for my rating of this book, but I'll end with this note: read this if you liked The Dark Divine or Twilight, do not read this if you did not like The Dark Divine or Twilight. That simple.

A lot more happened in this book but not enough for me to rate it any higher than a three stars.

Dark Divine è stato in assoluto uno dei migliori libri dell'anno scorso. Ricordo di averlo praticamente divorato, e una volta finito ero perfino tentata di leggere il seguito in lingua. Ma l'anno scorso l'inglese per me era ancora una lingua completamente sconosciuta, cosi ho deciso di aspettare fino alla sua pubblicazione italiana.
Quando venerdi mi è arrivato Lost Grace, ho fatto letteralmente i salti di gioia, e l'ho iniziato quella sera stessa, anche se un pò titubante.
Perché titubante?Perché sono davvero tante, forse troppe, le serie che partono con un primo libro originale, innovativo e ben scritto, ma che scadono e deludono i lettori con il secondo volume.
Il sequel, come dico sempre, è il ponte che unisce il primo e l'ultimo volume di una trilogia, è il classico libro "di mezzo", e io lo considero come una vera e propria prova per l'autore/autrice. Se il seguito riesce a conquistarmi, termino la serie, altrimenti la abbandono.
Lost Grace ha decisamente superato la prova, anche se per me in questo sequel mancava quel qualcosa in più che caratterizzava e che mi ha fatto amare Dark Divine.
Con questo non voglio dire che il libro non mi sia piaciuto, anzi, mi ha completamente trascinato nella storia grazie a una trama ricca di azione e colpi di scena, e soprattutto grazie ad un'eroina che ha cacciato finalmente un pò di forza e carattere.
In Lost Grace infatti non troveremo la buona e innocente Grace che avevamo conosciuto nel volume precedente, ma al contrario vedremo questo personaggio crescere e diventare più forte, la vedremo imparare a combattere e a sviluppare i suoi poteri, tutto per unico scopo: salvare Jude e riportarlo a casa.
Infatti ora che suo fratello è scappato, dopo averla morsa, Grace si ritrova con il lupo dentro di lei, ed è Daniel, ex-licantropo, che l'aiuterà a tenere a bada il mostro che ha in sé sviluppando al tempo stesso le sue abilità per proteggersi. Ma quando Gabriel, appena arrivato in città, suo padre e Daniel stesso, iniziano a pensare che l'allenamento non sia più una buona idea, Grace deve vedersela da sola.
Sa che l'unico modo per trovare Jude è allenarsi e sviluppare i suoi potersi da licantropo, cosi si rivolge a Talbot, un nuovo e misterioso ragazzo che le insegnerà a controllare il lupo.
Ma niente è come sembra, e dopo delle sconvolgenti scoperte e criptici avvertimenti da parte di Jude, Grace dovrà scegliere di chi fidarsi. In gioco c'è la vita delle persone che ama.
Come ho già anticipato prima, questa nuova Grace più sicura di sé e più "oscura" mi ha definitivamente conquistata. E' disposta a tutto pur di ritrovare Jude, e non esita un minuto nemmeno di fronte alle pericolose situazioni in cui si ritroverà.
Il suo allontanamento da Daniel però mi ha spezzato il cuore. Speravo con tutta me stessa che in Lost Grace non venisse introdotto un triangolo, ma l'autrice invece cosa fa?Introduce un altro inutile triangolo!
Ammetto che l'ha costruito molto bene, Talbot è un personaggio fantastico che ho davvero amato, ma era davvero necessario?Secondo me no, visto che sappiamo bene chi è il ragazzo che Grace ama veramente, e che, per quanto misterioso e affascinante sia, Talbot non potrà mai competere con Daniel!
Normalmente io odio i triangoli, soprattutto perché finisco per affezionarmi molto al terzo incomodo, e per starci male quando poi la protagonista sceglie il suo primo e unico amore. Questo quindi non l'ho apprezzato molto, anche se ripeto, l'autrice l'ha costruito molto bene.
Il finale mi ha scioccata. Ma quanto odio questi cliffhanger finali?Tenendo presente i tempi di pubblicazione della Sperling (abbiamo aspettato un anno per Lost Grace), molto probabilmente non vedremo The Savage Grace prima dell'autunno 2013!
Voto finale, 4 stelline!Come tutti i sequel, anche Lost Grace non è all'altezza del primo volume, ma è stata comunque una bella e soprattutto avvincente lettura, che consiglio assolutamente a chiunque abbia adorato Dark Divine!
