Nadya is the last of the Kalyazin clerics. Gifted with the ability to speak with her Gods and ask them for their holy power. She is a powerful divine magic user, the first to be able to speak with multiple Gods. Serefin is the High Prince of Tranavia. A powerful blood mage bent on winning the war against the Kalyazin’s and eradicating their beliefs forever. Malachiasz is a powerful, but broken boy. One who is running away from a dark filled with monsters. Each of them will be linked to the utter destruction or salvation of their people.
Blood. Death. Vicious magic. Wicked Saints is a force to be reckoned with, it will pull you into its harsh embrace and refuse to let you go. Each character has such a strong belief in what they do and how to create a better world. With so many conflicting viewpoints and emotions, this is a roller coaster of action as they each try to fulfill their desires. In each of their perfect worlds, the other culture is eradicated.
The conflicts, the divided beliefs, the nonstop tension throughout this novel was so captivating! There was never a dull moment, never a change in pace from start to finish. I loved every bit of this book. From the explosive beginning to the earth shattering end. And the magic systems were so clever. One required the use of your blood, while the other depended on blind devotion.
I have so many questions that I need to be answered! Emily A. Duncan leaves you on a high point at the end, and you’ll crave the next installment of Something Dark and Holy. I certainly do!
