Synopsis from Goodreads: Nadya doesn’t trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn’t belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who--and what--he’s become.As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. They’re pieces on a board, being orchestrated by someone… or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet—those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.

My Review: I enjoyed Wicked Saints despite a few flaws in the writing and the overly complicated names. I was really hoping book 2 would improve on book one for me but unfortunately it fell flat for me. The writing seemed awkward in more than a couple places and felt forced instead of flowing. I didn't enjoy the character development, the story was all over the place and I got very tired of the repetitiveness. Overall this one was not for me.
