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

IF Book Review of Spirit Bound, Vampire Academy 5 by Richelle Mead

Spirit Bound bookSpirit Bound, Vampire Academy #5
by Richelle Mead

5 Star Review by Immortal Fiction

Vampire Academy has been my all time favorite series the past 2 years and this one was a wonderful read, though I have to say the 2nd & 3rd are still my favorites. I thoroughly enjoyed this book all the way through. But I must say I was unsettled, unfulfilled by the end. I felt like it was missing the final chapter or one just prior to the final chapter.

Read an Excerpt

Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he’s out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true— Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. Only this time, he won’t rest until Rose joins him…forever.
