Rating: To Be Read

So, even though I didn’t outright love the first book The Dark Divine, the ending  made me want to read the sequel. Let me just say..I have a feeling the sequel will be so much more interesting. And judging by the synopsis from Good Reads below, Grace our heroine does appear to be taking a darker and more interesting road in this book. I’m very much looking forward to reading this!

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. When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do. She must become a Hound of Heaven.
Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot—a newcomer to town who promises her that he can help her be a hero. But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her 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.

So I initially loved this series. The first book was really intriguing, getting to know Camelia and Ben, and having that stalker freeking me out. The sequel was less so, simply because it was too similar to the first book. Yes, we learned about Camelia’s ability here, but I would have loved the story to have moved on more, rather than having another stalker following her. Anyway, I’m still intrigued about the conclusion to this story. I wonder what that family tragedy could be about, possibly her aunt? Will Camelia and Ben be able to use their abillities to help or will the story take on a different direction?

See synopsis from Good Reads below:

Camelia and Ben have discovered a powerful bond: They both possess the power of psychometry, the ability to sense things through touch. For Ben, the gift is a frightening liability. When he senses a strong threat or betrayal, he risks losing control and hurting people. Camelia’s gift is more mysterious. When she works with clay, her hands sculpt messages her mind doesn’t yet comprehend.

Before either teen has a chance to fully grasp these abilities, an unresolved family tragedy resurfaces in Camelia’s life, irrevocably changing everything she cares about…
