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..
My Review: Wicked Saints is unlike anything I have read recently. With a totally unique magic system, a host of intriguing characters and some morally grey characters this book sucked me in and kept me hooked. Despite my enjoyment of the book I did have some issues with it. I didn’t love the way that the main character developed or the way her relationship with another character developed. She started out really strong and powerful and then seemed weakened by that relationship. I’m hopeful that in future books she’ll be back to being a badass. I would recommend this book and I am looking forward to book two.
