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 held.
The memories her family has tried to bury resurface when Daniel returns, three years later, and enrolls in Grace and Jude's high school. Despite promising Jude she'll stay away, Grace cannot deny her attraction to Daniel's shocking artistic abilities, his way of getting her to look at the world from new angles, and the strange, hungry, glint in his eyes.
The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, as her actions stir resentment in Jude and drive him to embrace the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind the boys' 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.
At a Glance: This book has everything in it. It has lots of romance, action, fantasy... I love that about these books, Oh' I forgot about the werewolves. This book was very well written and I love that the characters grow on you immediately!


I love the covers, the colors and the romantic wispy feel to them.

The action was brilliant! These books have lots of blood, and a lot of tense moments. That's what I liked about these books, all of the action was just awesome. Lots of drama, drama, and more drama.

RomanceYes, Lots of romance! I love all the romance between Grace and Daniel, in these books, it was just really sweet.  

Heroine: Grace Divine, she is a smart 16-year-old, wants to be an artist, like Daniel and she finds her true love. Daniel and Grace end up madly in love with each-other.

Hero: Daniel Kalbi, he is a smart, 18-year-old with an amazing artist talent. Daniel was Grace's best friend, comes back to her town and falls for Grace hard.

Favorite Supporting Character: Probably, the answer would be Gabriel, or Graces' dad.

Something I loved:
I loved all of the different characters, there were not many in the series, I love all of their personalities  They were all really funny. I love the lost boys in that series, they add a real  good laugh in the books.

Something(s) I hated:
I can't really think of anything of what I hated about it, but I can think of one person in the book's that really annoyed me the most, that would be Pete. He starts out as a hansom  good friend to Grace, but then turns out to be apart of Celeb's army. And also I didn't really like Talbot.

Would I recommend it?
Definitely! Its a really fun read, good for teens, funny, bloody, and most important werewolves (If you like that kind of stuff)!

Did my friends like it?  
Yes! My mother, Amy, loved the series, you can check out her review at the top! Anyways, my mom told me to read it because its a clean-read for younger teens.
