Darkness never works alone...
Nadya doesn’t trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn’t belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who--and what--he’s become.
As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably ...more

that's all, see ya in 2020.
edit: 6.19.19: ~we have a cover~ and i'm just going to come out ahead of arcs and put the necessary content warnings here because we're dealing with about the same level of blood/self harm as Wicke ...more
**Many thanks to Wednesday Books and Netgalley for providing me with an ARC of this book**
Actual rating: 4.5 stars
The world they wish is broken bones and blood—always blood.
To finish this monstrous book on Friday the 13th and on full moon is a sign. A sign that this terrible, erratic, weird but beautiful book means something special to me. Three days of my life were solely dedicated to it. I was so engrossed in the story I couldn't properly eat, sleep, or do anything normal like interacting w
More closer to pub date when I can quote and stuff
Note to self: Chill the f* out, Meg!
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!?!?
Thank you so much to Wednesday Books.

I just cannot even express my appreciation.

We're going on an adventure!
I must begin with saying that I am a big fan of second books in series. We already know the most important characters, we know the world, basic rules have been established. It's less introducing us to everything and more plot, more character development. Luckily, it was no different here. It felt a bit like coming home (well, if your idea of home is a bleak, wet, snow-covered forest that houses a bunch of monste ...more

i love dark books staring monsters, blood, cool outfits, and that goth aesthetic. mmkay.
the trilogy is called Something Dark and Holy but really it should be called Something Dark and Bloody. you know...because everyone is always covered in blood. (if this trilogy was made into a movie half the budget would go into making the fake blood.)
Godsdamn... that was something!
A bit expected, but thrilling nonetheless.
To just get the negative criticism out the way: There was a somewhat more redundancy to the language this time around. You can only read “dark” and “blood” and “monster” so many times before growing weary of hearing it page after page after page. But I get it. My other complaint is something I let ...more
That’s the sound of my nervous, terrified laughter throughout this book. MY CHILDREN. My sweet, horrible, bloody, disgusting, awful children!
*Okay, form a coherent thought*
Ruthless Gods is the Slavic Chaotic Cosmic Horror (a new genre?) I was dyyyyying for. Wicked Saints was dark at points, but this book is So Much MORE.
These three ridiculous kids are just so in over their heads. Someone is always covered in blood. There’s so much Eye St ...more
And to wait another year to find out what happens to our cleric, prince, monster, and queen? Ugh...I am going to go through withdrawal!
Full review to come in 2020
I read Wicked Saints in July and I loved it. I was so eager to get Ruthless Gods, I didn’t want to wait until April! I was so thankful to receive an e-arc through NetGalley. This is my first highly anticipated e-arc.
Wicked Saints left us wanting more, and Ruthless Gods brings it. This book brings more death, magic, gods, and confusion. Everyone has power but ...more
