Bookish Delight #14: Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan

Bookish Delight of the Month (Bookish Delight for short) is a monthly feature in which I’ll spotlight the number one book I’m most anticipating at the beginning of the month it releases. This could be a book I don’t have yet, or have an ARC of already – even a book I’m already reading, because it doesn’t matter whether I have it or not, or have read it or not – this is just all about me spotlighting the book I’m most excited for in a given month.

So, without further adieu, let’s get started!


The book I’m most highly anticipating in April is… Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan! This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows me, since this book has been compared to the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, which I absolutely adore!!! I actually have an ARC of it that I received at work (I’m a bookseller), so I’m in the process of reading it as we speak. I’m about 150 pages in and HOLY WOW!!! It releases TODAY (!!!!!) and I HIGHLY recommend you pick up a copy!!!

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. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy..
