Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. We were first introduced to Gabriel in The Dark Divine when Grace recieves a book of ancient letters that Gabriel a young monk at the time wrote to his sister during the Crusades, detailing his search to know more about the Urbat.
The book of letters ends just before Gabriel falls to the Urbat curse, leaving us to wonder what happened to him in the following years to turn him into the man he is today. But good news!

I am so thankful to Bree Despain and everyone who decided to publish this series of letters. Up until now, I had connected with Gabriel's character, but only barely. Now, after hearing from his own words, the history of the Urbat, it is really heartwrenching and I can absorb his point of view more clearly. Even though this was only twenty pages, they were all sapped with enough emotion to fill a novel.

Gabriel is writing to his dear sister, Katherine in all of the letters, even after she is killed by his wolf side. She must've been a really understanding person to still have faith in her brother after everything he admits to, which makes her am admirable character even though we never see her directly. All he wants is redemption after killing all of those people, innocent or not. He was helpless and not strong enough to resist succumbing to the wolf's heading desires.
I became more aware in this story about his dire need for a cure. I am beginning to think he will do anything necessary to get it. Although, since he didn't succumb to his wolf nature and kill Miguel, it is hard to say where he will draw the line. The things mentioned about Grace in one of the letters sparked again my curiosity about the wolf cure. I hope this is one of the main plot points to the next book because it has been one of the lingering anomalies since the last book.
This story makes the Dark Divine upcoming book in the trilogy even more unpredictable. I will be keeping my eye out for the Savage Grace, coming to bookstores March 13, !

First of all, I refuse to call this a novella because it's barely twenty pages long. It's pretty much a short story. That just kind of bugs me. Now, because Egmont closed its door, you can't really buy this anywhere, so finding it is probably going to be a bit difficult. I got lucky in that my library's ebook system had it, so I could just download it. Funnily enough, though, I looked it up one day, an Cross-posted from my blog where there's more information on where I got my copy and everything.
Funnily enough, though, I looked it up one day, and the next someone else had checked it out. So apparently someone else in Saskatchewan is reading the same series!
Now this is not something like the Darkest Minds novellas where they're an additional story that expands upon the universe in the series. This adds to the backstory some.
And it's interesting, yes. It's very stylized as letters, and that's cool, although I'm not entirely sure the whole "Old English" thing carries through consistently and that probably would bug some people. It's a cool bonus. Is it essential? If you can find it legally like from a library, check it out if you're into this series. But don't worry about it if you can't. Although I will say, this is my favourite cover of the series.
I love the ombre fade of the cloth from dark to light, and honestly, I like that there isn't a model. I mean, are you going to have a naked monk rolling around in fabric on your cover? No, I'm kidding. Feb 25, Joyce rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , paranormal , werewolves , novellas.

Some reviewers here pan the book for not being a BOOK, but it was never meant to be anything more than a behind-the-scenes look at Brother Gabriel, a historical character in the story.

Each letter from Brother Gabriel to his sister was released as a blog post on Bree Despain's blog in January , then later compiled into an ebook. Although the first letter feels rough compared to the others, Despain finds her voice quickly. I enjoyed the record of Gabriel's descent into the madness of the wolf—then redemption—and thought it a compelling read.
As supplemental material to the Dark Divine, these letters give insight into a character who was pivotal to the story without taking attention away from the focus on the main antagonists in The Lost Saint. Mar 29, Erin rated it really liked it.
Was actually just starting "The Savage Grace", when I seen this short ebook. So of course I had to stop, and read it first. Its letter written by Gabriel, to his sister Katherine.
Before and after her death. Giving you a better insight of this struggles with being infected. And his fight to keep the wolf at bay. After reading this short story 20 pages. I felt bad for Gabriel, and what he went throw.
The lost letters of Brother Gabriel : a Dark divine original story
These letters gave a behind-the-scenes look at Brother Gabriel, a historical character in the story, and his struggle at becoming an Urbat. Many reviewers have erred in assuming that this ebook was intended to be a full book that stood on its own. One would think that the introduction would have made that sufficiently clear. Although the first letter feels rough compared to the others, Despain finds her stride quickly and provides insights into the struggles that her modern characters Daniel, Grace, and Jude face through the plight of thirteenth century Gabriel. The wolf wears down its victim and plays with reality until the victim is so confused he or she gives in to the relentless temptation. This has tragic results for Gabriel and his family. How he chooses to assuage his guilt over the years through these letters is heartbreaking.
