Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan

This was a solid 4 star read for me. I need more in the series to really make a decision though. But I wanted to share a few thoughts. I loved the buildup of the read thought and the character that we did meet. The thing that pulls you through the story is the plot itself. The magic is literally the magic of the read. There is a debate in this book about he magic and it did feel a bit political at times for me, but at the end fo the day I eat up just about anything with magic. I enjoyed the romance though I prefer a bit more angst in my reads. This felt like the romance aspect would appeal to a bit of a younger reader group than me. or at least what I expected with the basis of the rest of the book. All in all though a bit muddles, I enjoyed the book and cannot wait for the next one. Add To Goodreads
