The Dark Divine by Bree Despain is Munch-Worthy

The Dark Divine

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.

What is it with me and these types of books? We seem to attract each other (or at least the books attract me) with their mysteries, some kind of dark and/or evil magic, and some kind of dark, twisted romance.

I seem to like the dark. At least in books.

In all honestly, I don't have a very good reason for why I want to read this book. The summary is okay. The cover art has too much purple for my taste (that gauzy material and the toenails) and the paleness of the girl's skin is quite creepy. I might've heard someone that this novel was getting good early reviews, but come to think of it, I think that someone worked for EgmontUSA. And he/she just might be a bit biased.

Releases December 22, 2009 from EgmontUSA.
