  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren (365 Days of Reading) | 2/13/2014

    " 3.5 stars. The strangest book I've read in a while! That's not entirely a bad thing, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karis (YA Litwit) Jacobstein | 2/4/2014

    " 2.5 stars. Read my full review HERE. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amber | 1/22/2014

    " Got to page 154 and couldn't go any farther. I don't usually stop reading without finishing but when it feels like a chore I'm out. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anime June | 1/21/2014

    " Terrible, awful, ridiculously offensive, stupid, violent, and boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 1/20/2014

    " I like the idea of saints being reincarnated before the End of Days, but this story was poorly executed. Nothing seemed to flow, I wasn't convinced at all by the three female characters' transformation, and the Brooklyn setting felt like the author just looked at Google maps and based her description off of street names and street view. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Loralee | 1/12/2014

    " If you know me personally, you probably wouldn't enjoy this book. Like me, you might think there's too much profanity, too much vulgarity, too much blood (because that's what happens when somebody gets accidentally trapped inside an Iron Maiden--and what kind of derelict church has one of those hanging around, anyway?) and too much devotion without doctrine. But if you're all right with those, or with occasional point of view shifts, or with protagonists you can't stand at first, you might enjoy this novel about three girls headed for destruction, who instead are singled out by a visionary young man to be the next harbingers for faith and miracles, only to attract the wrath of his disbelieving (but willing to enforce his disbelief with violence) psychiatrist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 1/11/2014

    " In a world where YA is currently dominated by paranormal and dystopian, this book was a nice detour in the world of religious fantasy, where teenagers take on the personas of their patron saints. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary Findley | 11/14/2013

    " Awful! I won't read the sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Johnson | 10/16/2013

    " I really liked this book. The writing is sub-excellent but the story makes up for it. There were twists, in a good way, and it was not what I expected. Considering it is young adult fiction it is truly excellent. Read it if you like good fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zombz | 9/21/2013

    " Perfect! I want a movie! :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anna | 8/31/2013

    " I got through about half of this one when I put it down to read something else. Overly descriptive and slow moving plot had me flipping pages rather than enjoying the story. I really don't even remember much of what I read, it was too boring. I'd avoid this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ansindt | 5/8/2013

    " This was a very interesting story. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tegan | 4/13/2013

    " I think I liked this... Not totally sure "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cassie | 12/30/2012

    " The concept was intriguing, but I couldn't connect to the characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelle | 11/9/2012

    " Hard going non rewarding just didn't click with this book I didn't take to any of the girls and I didn't feel anything for Sebastian I kept waiting for it to get good and it just didn't happen! Sorry but just not my cup of tea. "
