BLOG TOUR: Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan ~ Review

Book Blurb: 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: I was excited to read this book when I first heard about and when I was invited to be a part of the blog tour I jumped on it. I really loved the magic system in this book. There are two ways to use magic in this novel. One way is based on using magic granted from the gods and the other was blood magic. Both are unique and I loved them both. I don't want to give too much away in this review but things are not always as they appear in this tale. I loved the romance between the heroine and the villain of this story.

This book had me hooked from the beginning and is a spectacular start to the Something Dark and Holy trilogy. I need book two now and I don't know how I'm gonna wait an entire year for it.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
