Review: Wicked Saints by Emily A Duncan

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.

I was really looking forward to this. I saw people said it reminded them of the Grishaverse….but I haven’t read those (but are up next!) so I went in with no expectations..not that you should judge a book on another authors series but just to explain where I was!!!

List format works for me here!

• I defo swooned for Malachiasz!

• Nadya and Malachiasz were fab to read together,

• Serefin was also very delish (to me!),

• Nadya annoyed me at times,

• The world building and the magic system was totally amazing,

• Loved that the Gods had actual personalities,

• It was on the darker side which I loved,

• The beginning had me sucked in,

• The ending was so action packed that I was on the edge of my seat,

• But the middle, it sort of sagged for me,

• The epilogue was defo oh yes.

Probably not for the first time ever, I am left feeling conflicted over a book and a rating. I’m going for 4 because I defo loved this more than I never …..
