I’m so excited to be part of the Wicked Saints Blog Tour and share with you my review.
I’d been pretty excited for this book since I first heard about it. I know Emily A. Duncan is a huge fan of the Shadow and Bone trilogy, and especially the Darkling, and when she says that this book is great for fans of the Darkling, she’s right.
The characters and the tension in all the relationships is all done so well. My personal favorite was Serefin, this prince who drinks a lot, but I think I’m more than a little biased because one of my friends is writing this incredible fic that’s Aldon from Rigel Black meets Serefin at a gala and then my favorite trash child, Caelum shows up. BUT ANYWAYS. I love Serefin and he has great friends. And then there’s Nadya’s point of view, and y’all. her and Malachiasz are a lot, and that’s all I’ll say about them. But if you like villain romances,, well.
I’m just so excited to see where the next book takes us because Wicked Saints has a killer of an ending, and also because I already want to reread this book as I anticipate being even better on reread.
I hope you all enjoy, and huge happy book birthday to Wicked Saints. Also, read this book and read The Pureblood Pretense, so you can read Two Drunks(or more?) at a Gala!
About the Book:
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.
