So excited to be sharing this book with you today. Once in a while I come across something that is so different from all the others out there and it's so much fun when that happens and of course, when it does, I want to tell everyone about it.
Wicked Saints is one such book. Dark, mysterious, original, unique, so many wonderful things about it and if I could make everyone pick up a copy of it, I would.

Wicked Saints is a book that I am so very glad I took a chance on. From the gorgeous eye drawing cover to the alluring synopsis, it truly lived up to both.
Fast paced and completely unique I was sucked in from the very first bloody chapter. And that blood, that darkness, it continued throughout the whole story and I couldn't of been happier about it.
To say I was intrigued with this story is an understatement. It consumed me with it's brilliance, it's uniqueness, and with its utterly engaging storyline. I just couldn't get enough. Things were put on hold, phone calls ignored and pages were turned faster than they ever have before.
The lies, the deceit, the conspiracies. The blood. Truly a stand out read unlike most in the genre and one that I soon won't be forgetting and will be eagerly awaiting for the next.
