The Dark Divine (Dark Divine Series #1)

The Dark Divine (Dark Divine Series #1) - Some books are harder to review than others. The first half of The Dark Divine was not really my thing. I had a very hard time with the author's lingo. She used terms like 'mud-pie eyes' and 'D-vine' over and over and for some reason it grated on me. I also shuddered at the use of the word 'slacks.' It almost felt like the author was completely out of touch on how to write a young adult novel. Between the weird language and constant focus on all of the strange familial relationships, I wasn't really feeling the story to begin with.The second half of the book finally started to suck me in a little bit when it finally got to the part that had to do with wolves (after all...this was supposed to be a wolf story, which I had started to forget). The last half redeemed the story a little bit for me. Will I read the second book in this series? I'm thinking probably not.
