YA/ Fantasy

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟

β€œWe’re all monsters, Nadya, some of us just hide it better than others.”

🌟 I expected that I would be giving the book 3 stars because this has been my rating for all those books with mixed reviews. I am stingy with 5 stars but I always try to find the good things in books and focus on them so I can be fair in my judgement.

🌟 I am going to start with what I didn’t like, I enjoyed the book and it may have been a 5 stars read if not for the characters. Unfortunately they are flat and I didn’t care about them and what will happen to them until the very end of the book where I started caring a little bit! The characters were not relatable and kind of stereotypical YA character with the same action and struggle that I got bored of.

🌟 The second problem I had was that the middle part was kind of boring, I actually fell asleep a few times reading it and thought it was due to me fasting but I think part of it was the story! But to be honest it had a very good start and good ending where I was so focused and didn’t even look at the page number which is a good sign as opposed to the middle part where I kept looking at it!

🌟 The writing is actually good and I think the author did an excellent job at her debut. I had a problem with the complex character names that I can’t even pronounce but the bigger problem is that they didn’t have a major role in this story!

🌟 The plot was good and if you read the synopsis, you would know that the idea is kind of new. I liked how things went and the ending was very good as I mentioned above.

🌟 Summary: SO Wicked Saint is a very good debut with mostly positive story-line and wriitng. The characters could have been made more distinctive and fleshed out which would have certainly pumped my rating. However, this is still enjoyable and worth giving a chance for fans of YA fantasy.


  1. I’ve been hearing a lot of mixed things about Wicked Saints and I don’t think I’ll pick it up any time soon.

    Do you think you’ll be reading the sequel when it comes out?
