“Prepare for a snow-frosted, blood-drenched fairy tale where the monsters steal your heart and love ends up being the nightmare.” - Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen
“This book destroyed me and I adored it.”- Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval
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.

Prepare yourselves. WICKED SAINTS is a marvel of a debut that sinks its claws into you from the first page and continues to latch on long after finishing. It’s a book that draws blood, makes you fall in love with monsters in all their forms, and relish moral complexities. It’s a book for everyone that loves their fantasy narratives sharp, a little (well, okay, maybe very) bloody, and intricately layered as much as its characters. This is the spiritual successor to Leigh Bardugo and Holly Black that I have waited years for.
Wow..oh wow! Wicked Saints definatly lives up to it's title. It is a dark, gritty, fantasy novel that will take you into a magical world of Gods and monsters. It is the author's debut and she rocks this book! I am a huge fan of Holly Black and this series it right up there with her amazing writing. Emily A. Duncan has a darkly, delicious young adult novel that will appeal to adults as well. It is hard to put down and now I have to wait for the next one!
