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.

boring, confusing, weird
First of all: I always finish books.. Having said that: I was tempted to stop this one midway. There are so many aspects that annoyed me: first of all the vast amount of names that are thrown around (characters, goods, saints,...), second: every chapter is preceded by a quote from the book of saints -> why? Third: The story is weird and at times I couldn't follow the plot. The characters seemed to have the same problem -> quote from two of the main characters: "Did I die? or didn't I? It was complicated" and: "Nadia didn't understand what was happening". Neither did I.
I cannot recommend this book. I wouldn't know who would enjoy listening to it.
