WICKED SAINTS by Emily A. Duncan
Available April 2, 2019 from Wednesday Books
In this stunning debut, Nadya—a peasant girl who can speak to the gods—must find a way to work with a deadly adversary to turn the tide of the war and assassinate the mad king. When their scheme leads them straight to the royal family, Nadya must decide whether to trust the High Prince—her country’s enemy—or the boy with powers that may ignite something worse than the war they’re trying to end.
“Rarely does a dark, magical epic have so effective a character-grounded sense of humor.”
