5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved it! Do yourself a favour and pick this up!
By fanna || book blogger on 2 April 2019
Wicked Saints will give you a saint who can ask (and be granted) God for powers, a boy from the 'other side' who doesn't believe in God, a prince who's apparently cruel, loads of blood magic and power harnessing, heartbreaks, and heart flutters.

The plot of this book impresses me like no other. It combines beliefs and thoughts into understandable chaos that certainly mashes up to, unfortunately, force you to take sides. But you can't! Because the characters are complex and they believe in what they believe in, and there won't be a point where you can clearly call one right and the other wrong. It's a great fantasy that is built on the power of magic.

The characters are amazing. Nadya is on the run from the cruel prince or anyone from the enemy side, her beads working as a connection between her and the Gods. She's gifted but is also intelligent, smart, and uses her heart on the right occasions. Serefin is the prince whose father is eager to sacrifice him for power, his hands adorn a cut every now and then when he uses his blood magic. He's not too keen on emotions but he's definitely cunning to find a way out of anything. There are other characters who I'm not mentioning for spoiler purposes. Just pick up the book already!

The writing is another aspect that I would love to appreciate. It stunningly encompasses every emotion and setting while developing the story in a very subtle manner. You'll never know when you start loving (OR HATING) a character and suddenly there's a twist. The alternate POVs are always hard to execute so well but I guess Emily Duncan can help you learn through this book.

Finally, I don't know what else to say about this book without either spoiling it for you or sounding repetitive. So trust me, just pick it up and trust me, you won't be disappointed!

"Blood and blood and bone. Magic and monsters and tragic power..."

WOW! I mean, just wow! This book blew my mind! I joined a read a long after seeing it mentioned on Bookstagram and Booktok. I hadn't heard any spoilers, bar it being based on Russian/Eastern European folklore, and I was very intrigued. If you like Shadow and Bone then you'll love Wicked Saints...

Wicked Saints is a dark and gothic fantasy set in a version of Eastern Europe that's seeped in a war between the divine power of the gods and the secular magic of blood mages. It follows the POV of Nadya, the last remaining cleric gifted with divine power and forced to flee the monastery she grew up in, and Serefin, the enemy crown Prince and a powerful blood mage who is looking for her. While on the run she encounters three refugees, one of which is a terriblely strong and mysterious blood mage, Malachiasz. They convince her to travel to the enemy kingdom in an attempt to assassinate the king and put an end to the holy war ravaging their two countries. And as you have it, chaos ensues...

"You could be exactly what these countries need to stop their fighting. Or you could rip them apart at the seams..."

I went in to this hearing mixed reviews on the story. Some people absolutely adored it and other people thought it was too chaotic and confusing. To be honest, it is a bit but that chaos spoke to me and I loved it. I'm still left with so many questions and there were times I was wondering what is going on but the book had me hooked and I couldn't stop reading it.
From the first chapter we are straight in to the action and throughout the book it doesn't really let up, it's go, go, go. I loved reading the dual POVs from characters on each side of the holy war. I do wish we got to see Malachiasz's POV and perhaps that might be something in the next books.
There is an enemies to lovers romance, although it does develop quite quickly. I'm a sucker for romance but in this book I found myself too engaged in the plot to mind that the romance was light.
I read Shadow and Bone before this and I preferred Wicked Saints as it felt more was happening with the characters.

Also, shout out to Nadya who understands our struggles with masks... 😂

"Nadya had only been wearing a mask for a day and already she was fantasising about ripping it off..."
