Daniel felt real, while still managing to stay completely likable. Bree rediscovered her childhood love for creating stories when she took a semester off college to write and direct plays for at-risk, inner-city teens from Philadelphia and New York.
Recommended to Annalisa by: Dark Divine Book 1 Paperback: Rather, I found Grace’s devotion to Daniel and her ultimate willingness to help him very touching.
