Description

The stunning sequel to instant New York Times bestseller, Wicked SaintsNadya doesn't trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn't belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who—and what—he's become. As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. Their paths are being orchestrated by someone...or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet—those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.In their dramatic follow-up to Wicked Saints, the first book in their Something Dark and Holy trilogy, Emily A. Duncan paints a Gothic, icy world where shadows whisper, and no one is who they seem, with a shocking ending that will leave you breathless.This edition uses deckle edges; the uneven paper edge is intentional.

        February 1, 2020
        Magic and romance steeped in blood and betrayal. After the dramatic conclusion of Wicked Saints (2019), things have stuttered along. Serefin is king of Tranavia, but the court doesn't trust him; Malachiasz is the Black Vulture, a monstrous magic wielder, but he still doesn't have the power he sought, and Nadya can no longer hear her gods. Dual narration from Nadya's and Serefin's perspectives, with additional narrative interludes including two of the handful of brown characters in this Eastern European-influenced world of pale skin, takes readers on a (pedestrian) road trip to a scary forest where everyone has a goal that involves killing one of their reluctant allies and sort-of friends. Nadya and Malachiasz continue their doomed, toxic, intense romance even as they work at direct cross-purposes while Serefin (more tortured and less charming this time around) figures out that he likes Kacper and fights a voice in his head; meanwhile, gods (or maybe monsters) stir and manipulate mortals. The pacing lags early on before settling into a steady forward direction, and the prose veers toward overwrought, leavened by charmingly snarky, contemporary-sounding dialogue; fans of the first volume will be pleased to have more of the same, with higher stakes and increasingly complicated questions of power and divinity. Why mess with a formula that works? (map) (Fantasy. 14-18)

        Gr 9 Up-Duncan's sequel to Wicked Saints is dark and beautiful. Months after the horrific events at the cathedral, Nadya is trapped in Grazyk with Serefin, King of Tranavia, while Malachiasz lurks in the Salt Mines. As Nadya struggles to understand the black scar on her palm, Serefin tries to stop the voice in his head and garish visions. After visits from the witch Pelageya, the three learn that in order to put an end to what was started, they must enter the realm of the divine. The king and the cleric, along with the monster and their allies, encounter fallen ancient gods, now awake with mad and hungry power. Readers will be quickly pulled back into the strangely intertwined lives of Nadya, Serefin, and Malachiasz-the continued development of these characters is a testament to Duncan's powerful writing style and vivid imagination. The monsters, gods and goddesses described in this book are transfixing, and the pace is clipped, with plot twists and surprises to keep readers engaged and eager for the third volume in the trilogy. VERDICT A sure hit for fans of the first installment. Purchase where gothic fantasy is popular.-Kimberly Barbour, Manatee County Public Library System, FL
