A family destroyed. A love threatened. An enemy returns.
Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process.
Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot, a newcomer to town. But as the two grow closer, Grace's relationship with Daniel is put in danger - in more ways than one.
Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her - not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

It's difficult for a second book to be better in every way, shape, and form than the first book in the series, but The Lost Saint has definitely topped The Dark Divine by a long shot.
In this second installment of The Dark Divine series, you meet Grace (again) who has transformed from her annoying, human self to her almost-as-annoying, werewolf self. She is struggling to learn to control her new werewolf powers and behaviors, but as her teacher and lover, Daniel, keeps disappearing and seeming to "avoid" her, she finds Talbot, a handsome, suave, mysterious guy she's just recently met. Too bad you shouldn't be reeled in with simply looks.
I have to say that this blew my mind. Sure, I rated The Dark Divine with 3.5 stars, but I was anticipating the sequel, and when I discovered that I won a contest, I jumped right in to the world of Grace and her werewolf menio-I mean buddies again.
The characters' development that was left off of The Dark Divine picked back up, and I liked The Lost Saint because, for one, it seemed to concentrate more on the story with Daniel out of the picture for some of the book. Grace focused more on her learing and adaption to the "wolf" as the book so cleverly puts the urges of the werewolf.
That's about all I can say about the book without ruining it for all you wonderful people.
Why are you just staring at the screen. READ THE BOOK!!!
