Book Review: Wicked Saints: Emily A Duncan

Dear reader I couldn’t sleep so I finished reading “Wicked Saints” book number one in the “Something dark and Holy” series by Emily A Duncan. I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because it seemed interesting and I had been hearing a lot about it. My personal review of the book is as follows:

The writing style, setting, and world building/mythology of the world(especially the blood magic elements) kept me interested in the story and turning pages, I also enjoyed the questions that were brought up about faith and why people believe and how two people can view things so differently whenever they’re viewing things via the lens of their respective faith/beliefs also what happens whenever you question or change your faith or beliefs .

However the last half of the book(around 240) I started to get confused about where the plot was going(I can’t really explain more about why because a plot twist happens around this time and I do want to give away anything) after that point(in my personal opinion) the storyline as a whole felt a lot like it had turned into a part of the world of the “Shadow and Bone” series by Leigh Bardugo which really pulled me out of the story.

I also got lost at the end as to what was going on and why (again trying to avoid spoilers). The ending left me feeling let down but not surprised.

Overall because of how much I liked the characters in the beginning I’m rating this book a 4 and half out of 10. Happy reading dear reader ☺.
