GOODREADS // WORDERY // BOOKDEPOSITORY

Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy, #1)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. 

 

WHY I’M EXCITED FOR WICKED SAINTS

  • Apparently is dark, twisty and lushly Gothic.
  • Joan of Arc. It’s not a retelling but the author has said it “takes on thematic elements similar to Joan of Arc’s story”.
  • It has a blend of Russian and Polish setting and culture.

  1. OH, I thought it was a straight-up retelling and didn’t really want to read about a teenage girl being burned at the stake, but now I have hope that it won’t end in tragedy since it’s just got similar themes? Cautiously interested now…
