Review: The Lost Saint by Bree Despain done by Autum Frailey

The non-stop sequel to The Dark Divine delivers an even hotter romance and more thrilling action than Bree Despain's first novel.  Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi.  She gave her soul to the wolf to save him and lost her beloved mother.  When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do.  She must become a Hound of Heaven.  Desparate 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 begins to crumble.  Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace becomes prideful in her new abilities - not realizing that an old enemy has returned and deadly trap is about to be sprung.  Readers, raveous for more Grace and Daniel, will be itching to sink their teeth into The Lost Saint.


You know I didnt really get into this book like I did the first until the last half of the book. Its still a good book dont get me wrong but I had to make myself keep reading for a while. I did like how the book ended up. The sacrifice that Daniel made for Grace was amazing and was definitly a surprise when I realized what had happened. I will definitly be getting the next book though because I want to find out what happens next. I just hope that it doesnt start out as slow as this one did.
4/5 Stars

Review: Once In A Full Moon by Ellen Schrieber done by Autum Frailey

Beware of a kiss under the full moon. It will change your life forever.
Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves—Legend's Run is famous for them. She's used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend's Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.
Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who's from the wrong side of town. But she can't deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste's hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend's Run.
Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.


Ok I know a lot of people really did not like this book but I really enjoyed it. Yeah there was a couple things that could have been added but maybe it is that way on purpose. There is obviously going to be a second and possibly third book in this series and who know maybe Ellen will be doing more in the next ones to make it easier to understand for some people. I thought it was a good story. I like the way she desirbed Legends Run. The whole East Side and West Side thing defintily makes sense to me. I grew up in a town in South Dakota that fits this description almost spot on. They had two different middle school and elementary schools. Only in my hometown it was North Side versus the South Side and then all of us meet in high school and it still is segregated. Hell we even have 2 colleges that are completely separated like middle school. I like the way she plays this and I thought it turned out amazing. I loved the characters, Celeste and Brandon and I know where Brandon is coming from since he lives on the wrong side of the tracks. I will definitly be picking up the second book whenever it comes out cause I cant wait to find out what happens next. I just hope that other people out there can also see the potential in this series like I can.

3.5/5 Stars
