The Lost Saint by Bree Despain is a Must Read in YA Paranormal Romance

The Lost Saint (Dark Divine #2)

Author: Bree Despain, released 12/28/2010

Book Review by Holly Simmers, Immortal Fiction

The Lost Saint (Dark Divine #2) by Bree Despain is hands down, the best book I’ve read in a long time.  A must read for anyone who enjoys this genre, I was intrigued and captivated by book 1, but then book 2 had me so engrossed from beginning to end that I had to take time to review it (at 4 in the morning!)

The Lost Saint is a riveting, compelling and engrossing Paranormal Romance Thriller unlike anything I’ve read in the young adult realm, though most comparable in appeal to The Wolves of Mercy Falls (Shiver, Linger) by Maggie Stiefvater.  With character and plot development that rivals Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson and Rachel Vincent’s Werecats/The Shifter novels (all favorites of mine) I anxiously await the next novel in this series with thin restraint.

Unlike many YA-PR books, The Lost Saint remains clean enough for young teens so the “hotter romance” description above is a bit misleading compared to The Wolves of Mercy Falls, Vampire Academy, Twilight and The House of Night novels (other YA favorites of mine). The yearning and sensuality are comparable to Eclipse (my fave of The Twilight Saga) as well as the inspirational perspectives on love, honor and social responsibility woven in, but its best features are the captivating, memorable and well-paced storyline packed with well-developed relate-able characters, delivering a complex plot that’s not hard to follow but keeps you guessing from the edge of your seat.  The Lost Saint is a highly recommended must read!  Buy the Hardcover edition

Equally compelling is the spectacular job of narration (acting!) that Eileen Stevens delivers, bringing these characters to life with movie-quality substance especially throughout the climactic scenes.  A rare performance of a Best YA-PR Book of the Year contender.  Listen to a Sample of the MP3 Audiobook

—- excerpt from blog —-
Laurell and JayFlirt that comes out February 2nd 2010, is an Anita Blake novel, but its a surprise book. I got the initial idea, and it was a new idea for Anita. Now I get ideas for Anita all the time, but ideas that become books usually take months, or years to make their way to the front of the que of novel ideas. This idea hit me and I was writing it as a novel only two weeks, or so later. Very unusual for me. The last time something close to this happened it was the book Micah, but I still to this day can’t tell you where that idea came from. So the seed of the idea must have been incubating for months, or years, before it burst onto my subconscious, and then hit my conscious mind right between the eyes. Flirt wrote as quickly as Micah, but with Flirt I knew exactly where the idea had originated. I made a note, because one of the most common questions I get is, “Where do I get my ideas?” So I kept notes. Where and when and how I got the idea for the novel. The process of writing it from page count, to how it overwhelmed my muse and me and interrupted another book.

SYNOPSIS:

When a vampire serial killer sends Anita Blake a grisly souvenir from Las Vegas, she has to warn Sin City’s local authorities what they’re dealing with. Only it’s worse than she thought. Ten officers and one executioner have been slain—paranormal style. Anita heads to Vegas, where’s she’s joined by three other federal marshals, including the ruthless Edward. It’s a good thing he always has her back, because when she gets close to the bodies, Anita senses “tiger” too strongly to ignore it. The weretigers are very powerful in Las Vegas, which means the odds of her rubbing someone important the wrong way just got a lot higher.  Book Sequence and Links to each Ebook below. Continue reading
