Synopsis from Goodreads...

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....


Beginning: "The calming echo of a holy chant filtered down from the sanctuary and into the cellars."

56: "He held out a hand. The pain was already dissipating, ebbing away like a trickling stream."


Comments: Wicked Saints was one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. I liked the story. What are you reading this week?

  7. There's a lot of opposites/conflicting ideas in the premise: beauty and brutality, wicked saints, dark and light, romance and danger. Sounds good.

    1. Actually, that pretty much sums it up. There was a lot of conflicting perspectives in Wicked Saints, and the characters were caught in the middle of it. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
