The Savage Grace by Bree Despain

The Savage Grace:
A troubled soul. An impossible choice. A final battle.

Wrestling with the werewolf curse pulsing deep inside of her, Grace Divine was finally able to find her brother, but it nearly cost her everything.

With her boyfriend, Daniel, stuck in wolf form and Sirhan's death approaching, time is running out for Grace to stop Caleb Kalbi and his gang of demons. If she fails, her family and hometown will perish. Everything rests on Grace's shoulders.

The final installment in The Dark Divine trilogy brings Daniel and Grace's love story to a breathtaking conclusion.

In the beginning of The Dark Divine trilogy, Bree Despain created an ordinary girl and put her into extraordinary circumstances; and throughout these books that girl has come up swinging every time she was knocked down. Bree's unique and refreshing mix of Christianity and werewolf lore grabbed me from the beginning and wouldn't let go until the very end. Thrilling and heart-breaking. Romance and charm. Deception and secrets. This was an incredible and all consuming end to this trilogy, and throughout the book I was kept guessing about what would happen next. Bree never made anything easy for her characters and I think that is why I enjoyed these books so much. She definitely put me through the emotional ringer during The Savage Grace and I'm devastated to say goodbye to this world.

Throughout this trilogy Grace was one of those characters that anyone could easily relate to because she wasn't always perfect, what made her such a wonderful character were her flaws. After becoming infected with the Urbat (or Hound of Heaven) curse, she wants to use her powers to help others, but the demon wolf inside of her constantly pulls her in another direction. And for a while there she listened to it, but she managed to turn things around, and it wasn't until she learned to let go of her anger bottled inside and forgive, that she truly reached the potential she was destined for.

Daniel was the perfect anti-hero from the first to the last book. He never wanted to play the "hero," all he ever wanted was to have a normal life with the girl that he loves. But they will have to fight every step of the way to be together: against his father, Caleb, leader of a fiendish pack of Urbats and demons, and against the largest pack of them all: the Etlu Clan. When Grace restores Daniel to his human form, they discover that he is a true Hound of Heaven, no longer plagued by the inability to forgive himself. And a final battle will test everything he is, and everything he is going to be, in order to put an end to Caleb's reign of destruction.
