Wicked Saints out April 2nd, 2019 from Wednesday Books/Macmillan.

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.
