Our customer reviews

Agnes, Lucy, and Cecilia are three girls struggling to come to terms with all life has dealt them. All seems hopeless... until the girls each find a bracelet, linking them to a boy who claims he is a living saint. As the three become more and more involved with this strange young man, they begin to question all that they know about saints, martyrs, and their faith. And as one of them begins to fall in love with him, the girls will discover just how entangled their fates have become. To put it simply, this book blew my mind. It was like nothing I've ever read before, and I'm not ashamed to admit I stayed up half the night reading. There's an element of suspense in the novel that keeps you hooked, and the author poses some questions that stay with you long after you've finished reading. The novel itself is rich in spirituality and religious pretenses, but it never feels preachy - it's simply part of what makes the story so unique. I really loved the way the author developed the characters of Lucy, Cecilia, and Agnes, as well as the way the romance was written (I'm not going to give away who it's between, so I'll leave it at that). I definitely recommend you check out The Blessed if you're looking for something unique and refreshing - especially if you're a fan of paranormal romance and YA novels. I can't wait for the next installment!show more
