The Dark Divineby Bree Despain
Synopses & Reviews
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 his own 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 boy'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.
Grace Divine, almost 17, learns a dark secret when Daniel Kalbi, her childhood friend--practically a brother--returns, upsetting her minister-father and the rest of her family, around the time strange things are happening in and near their small Minnesota town.
The latest title from popular Forgotten Realms(R) author Richard Lee Byers.
The dead are restless in the magic-rich realm of Thay, and an evil necromancer begins to gather them to his cause--a cause that will change the face of Faerun forever.
