Happy Easter, y’all!
I’m a little backed up in the review department here.
I’ve managed to squeeze in some reading, but I’ve been very neglectful of remembering to actually review any of the great books I’ve been reading.
I just came back from a rainy weekend getaway up in the Smokey Mountains for my birthday, and I thought I should start off Thirty Seven on a productive note, so here’s a microreview for the YA set:
I’m a really big fan of the world building in this book. The blending of politics and religion and religion and magic was interesting. I enjoyed the way Nadya interacted with multiple gods. It was a great way to reveal different facets of her personality, and a vehicle for demonstrating how her thinking changed as she evolved and became more confident in her own abilities.
The story moved well and I became attached to both Nadya and Malachiasz, but I found the ending very confusing and I’m still not sure exactly what happened, I’m hoping the next book will clear things up a bit!
If you like character driven stories full of magic, esoteric religious icons, and dark, broody (maybe?) love, you should pick up Wicked Saints, regardless of age.
I was provided with an ARC by Wednesday Books, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
