A prodigal son
A dangerous love
A deadly secret...
I stood back and watched his movements. Daniel had that way about him that could shut me down in an instant... I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again. “Tell me... I mean... why did you come back? Why now, after all this time?”
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.
“Reading THE DARK DIVINE feels almost like following a trail of moonlight into the heart of a forest at midnight – at once spooky and compelling. Bree Despain takes familiar myths and legends and wraps them elegantly around a haunting story of love, loss, family and forgiveness. Beautiful.” – Lesley Livingston, author of Wondrous Strange
