Wicked Saints

(Something Dark and Holy #1)

Published April 2nd 2019

RATING: ★★★½

3.5 out of 5 stars


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..

Series? Yes, this is the first book in the trilogy!

MY REVIEW OF Wicked Saints:

This book started off with so much action that it immediately drew my attention. Emily A. Duncan’s writing style is beautiful and descriptive. This is the kind of book that will suck you in, and you won’t be able to put it down until it’s finished.

Wicked Saints follows two characters through (in the author’s words) “two countries, Kalyazin, which is a Russian analogue, and Tranavia, which is Polish.”

The magic system was dark, but entertaining. You have never met a heroine like Nadya before.

One of the things I like most about this book is that it’s entertaining and it isn’t all action. There is some downtime, which I think makes for a great read!

I can’t wait to see where this story goes! I will definitely be continuing this series!

About the Author:

EMILY A. DUNCAN works as a youth services librarian. She received a Master’s degree in library science from Kent State University, which mostly taught her how to find obscure Slavic folklore texts through interlibrary loan systems. When not reading or writing, she enjoys playing copious amounts of video games and dungeons and dragons. Wicked Saints is her first book. She lives in Ohio.
