The Savage Grace by Bree Despain
Release: March 13, 2012
A troubled soul. An impossible choice. A final battle.Cover: As much as I hate to say it, I really do hate this cover. It saddens me because the past two covers in this series have been some of my favorites, especially The Lost Saint's cover. I had thought The Savage Grace's cover would be even better. Instead, I was disappointed.
Wrestling with the werewolf curse pulsing deep inside of her, Grace Divine was finally able to find her brother, but it nearly cost her everything.
With her boyfriend, Daniel, stuck in wolf form and Sirhan's death approaching, time is running out for Grace to stop Caleb Kalbi and his gang of demons. If she fails, her family and hometown will perish. Everything rests on Grace's shoulders.
The final installment in The Dark Divine trilogy brings Daniel and Grace's love story to a breathtaking conclusion.
Before I get into my complaints, I will say the color is lovely. The pink-ish red is gorgeous and goes along beautifully with the other two covers' colors. And there ends my praise.
Now that I have been nice, can I please point out how completely awkward and unnatural the model looks? I'm sorry, but no one is that long. The top and bottom halves of her body are completely out of proportion. The only allowance I will make is that maybe the sheet/fabric around her waist is the cause of this oddity. Still, that does not make it any better visually. It really is a shame, considering how pretty the other covers were. And while we're discussing other covers...why didn't they stick with leg thing? It worked so well with the other two covers and would have fixed this whole inhuman length issue.
What do you think? Was this cover a hit or a total miss? Let me know what you think in the comments. I would love to hear your thoughts.
