Apr 11, Megan rated it did not like it Shelves: The door was marred by several claw-like gashes – like the way Daisy would leave scratches on my bedroom door when I fhe her home alone, only these scratches were much larger and deeper.
Whatever animal had been kept in here had apparently gotten out. Yet our protagonist, Grace Divine, doesn’t figure out the mystery until she is very blatantly told on page Upon discovering being told the supernatural secret of her childhood friend and long time crush Grace rushes home and But Grace, upon learning that mystical beasts do exist, simply runs home and blames herself.
Long Time Crush told her that his, er So she should understand about complicated things such as genes, yes? Yet she spends the following morning crying and reflects, I felt like such a fraud. My father told me my name meant sark, help, and guidance. But he was wrong.
All Grace Divine meant was blundering, meddling, disappointment. Everything I touched – everything I tried to help – fell apart and slipped through my fingers. Why did I have to press the issue, refuse to stay ignorant? Why couldn’t I stop myself from creating this mess? If I had just stayed out of things, if I had just minded my own business for all these years, would everything be the way it used to? Would Daniel still be the blondhaired boy next door I gave up on this one a few pages after reading the above pity party.
Seriously, when someone tells you they have an unwanted genetic condition, what sort of person runs home and blames herself???
Unless of course you are the parent ; But if you’re not the parent As someone who spent my teen years rebelling as much as possible including rebelling against my Catholic schooling by discovering atheism I simply cannot relate the pastor’s daughter and perpetual good-girl Grace Divine.
Not that I’m endorsing all teens to pull an Eric Cartman th, but I do expect some independent thought. Speaking of which, Grace is the worst excuse for a heroine since Bella Swan.
The Dark Divine Series
Actually, I believe I hate Grace a little bit more than Bella. Grace doesn’t figure out anything for herself and frequently takes “no” for an answer when she questions Daniel, her dad and her brother as she blunders her way through this book.
My final reasons for disliking The Dark Divine are incredibly petty, but worth mentioning simply so I can get them off my chest: Yes, I know that covers are ridiculously misleading. But this one is so pretty, and a little sex-ay. Although I quit on page out of I am certain that the book will not live up to the cover.
Despite the above gripes, the bottom line is that her story bugged me, so I am done. View all 39 comments. Okay, I know it’s dorky to add my own book to my to-read list, but I was giddy about it being listed on GoodReads and I couldn’t resist! View all 34 comments.

Then one day a new guy appears. She is immediately drawn to him like a synonym for prey to a synonym for predator. His name is select a name no one has given a child in the last years. To prove it, he drives a motorcycle. Through pick a number morethan 1 chapters dadk girl dsrk stalks this guy she claims to loathe with her head pick a place one might shove their head if they were quite stupid.
But really the thought of these two getting intimate is thoroughly synonym for icky anyways, as they have about as much chemistry as a wet mop and a potato. Tje you get it filled out?

I stood back and watched his movements. Daniel had that way about him that could shut me down in an instant. I kick Rivine Grade Plot: I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again.
Why now, after all this time? But she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night really held. 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. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it—her soul. This book is written so well it all flows amazingly well and keeps you guessing what will happen next. The ending was handled wonderfully. I enjoyed this entire book. Setting The town is said to be near Apple Valley. A lot happens in the art class, the parish, the Divine house and backyard and downtown. I particularly enjoyed the tree climbing and finding baby James the best.
And the angel memorial: The tone is unique in a way that makes me second guess myself each page turn. I hate figuring it out before the main character. I had my guesses but so did Grace but neither of us knew until it was there.
