    Expansive and intricate debut

    Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan is Something Dark and Holy book #1 and the beginning to an expansive and intricate fantasy epic. Kingdoms and lives hang in the balance as religions clash. Nadya is a cleric who can talk with all the gods and she may just hold the key to stopping the war. But we know it's never that easy. When she is forced to abandon the monastery she grew up in, her journey begins, and not just one to save her world, one of personal discovery as well. Ms. Duncan creates a world full of flawed and complex characters who the reader can connect with, love and hate. The story is filled with both beauty and brutality. The warring of religions as well as magic that is rooted in blood. Ms. Duncan also pulls from the mythos of various cultures to give us distinct peoples who are rooted in ideas that are subtly familiar, yet uniquely different. Overall I enjoyed Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan and felt it was a good first book for this series. We are drawn in as readers and given a lot of different things to connect with as well as rebel against. I am very curious to see where things go from here as this world and its characters expand and develop. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

    Wicked saints

    A tedious book overall, but there was one plot twist that I did not see coming.

    Let them fear her

    A centuries-long holy war. A girl who talks to Gods. A prince who was sent to war too young. A boy fighting a monster inside him. This book is one of my favorites of the year. This book wreaked me. This book destroyed me. This book broke my heart. I loved every single minute. I got so lost in this book's cruel monstrous beauty that I stayed up all night to finish it. I was really craving a dark book when I picked this up and it delivered and then some. This book made me question what makes a sinner and what makes a saint. Nadya, Serefin, and Malachiaz all stole my heart. This book is told from the Point of Views of Nadya and Serefin who are both on opposite sides of the war. I loved getting to see both sides of this war from people who had been living it their whole lives and not just one side like most first books. I loved the side characters as well. I also have two ships I am going down with. The writing was outstanding and flowed so smoothly. After the cliffhanger ending, I NEED Ruthless Gods aka book 2 now. I highly recommend this book especially if you love dark books. Rating: 5 stars
