Waiting on Wednesday #12: Wicked Saints – Emily A. Duncan

BOOK REVIEW (98).png

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..


Wicked Saints first caught my attention on Twitter when I saw a few people talking wicked saintsabout how excited they were for the upcoming release. The striking cover really appealed to me so I quickly looked it up on Goodreads and honestly after just the first few sentences of the blurb this book went on my wishlist. It sounds like it’s going to be an epic multi-POV story full of magic, war and mystery. I have wished for it on Netgalley and I am praying to the book gods that someone grants my wish. I’ve seen some excellent reviews for it already and one that suggested it was reminiscent of the Grishaverse so this is definitely high on my TBR! Wicked Saints is the first in the Something Dark and Holy Trilogy and is publishing April 2nd from Wednesday Books.
