Waiting on Wedneaday (9): The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you can post about upcoming books you're looking forward to.

I've known about my choice this week for a long time and am surprised I haven't used it yet. I love love LOVE the cover and the blurb looks delicious!

The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process. When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do. She must become a Hound of Heaven.
Desperate 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 is put in danger—in more ways than one.
Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her—not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

I just finished the first novel about a week ago and fell in love with it. The plot was interesting and fast paced and the characters felt real and were so entraining. Despain is a master at combining really light  and wholesome characters with really dark ones and showing us how shadows are created. I can't wait to see Grace get her hands a little dirty and I love that the roles between her and Daniel are now going to be switched. Wonder what's going to happen...

What book are you waiting for?
