A prince in danger must decide who to trust.
A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.

Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy..
Okay, so I absolutely loved this book! I have no idea why I waited this long to actually pick up this book.. I think I have put it on every TBR since September!
I loved the world, the characters, the plot and especially the magic!
The world was so interesting, in this book we mainly got to learn about two of the countries, I really hope we get to see about the other countries in the sequel as well! During this book we travel from one country to the other, so we definitely get to see quite a bit!
Also lesson learned, don’t trust anyone.. (again..) These characters! They are so good! As in all of them are so well developed, and have great development throughout the book! And as I said I 100% trusted and distrusted the wrong people apparently! Nadya, our first POV, was a strong female, fighting for what she believed in! Serefin, our second POV, was learning to stand up against his father, and also fight for what he believed in. I loved seeing these two characters coming together! Also so many of the side characters were so good! I loved Parijahan, Rashan, Ostyia and Kacper! Bu tI do think Serefin was my favourite!
Both worlds we visited in this book have different magic systems. Both of them working in different ways, and both of them being very interesting! I loved learning the workings of both throughout the book!
The plot was just great! My mind got blown so often, especially at the end of the book!
Basically I absolutely loved this! And I will read my ARC of Ruthless gods ASAP!
