Title: Wicked Saints
Author: Emily A. Duncan
Pages: 385
Publishing: April 2nd 2019 by Wednesday Books


A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.

A prince in danger must decide who to trust.

A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.

Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.

In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy..


What an amazing read! I absolutely loved the premise of this story and the characters really pulled me in from the very beginning. I loved how unique the plot was and I couldn't put the book down. The setting was magical and I could picture every scene because the writing style was eloquent and very descriptive. There honestly wasn't anything about this novel that I didn't enjoy! 

All in all, it was fast paced, entertaining, and full of unique and fun characters. I loved all of the magic and the setting had me dreaming of winters in Europe. I would highly recommend this novel if you've loved Sarah J. Maas novels or other YA Fantasy. Thank you to Wednesday Books for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 4/5
