“Chaos is hasty. But Patience… Ah, Patience knows precisely when to strike”

Seven Faceless Saints by M. K. Lobb

Synopsis of Seven Faceless Saints

In the city of Ombrazia, saints and their disciples rule with terrifying and unjust power, playing favorites while the unfavored struggle to survive.

After her father’s murder at the hands of the Ombrazian military, Rossana Lacertosa is willing to do whatever it takes to dismantle the corrupt system—tapping into her powers as a disciple of Patience, joining the rebellion, and facing the boy who broke her heart. As the youngest captain in the history of Palazzo security, Damian Venturi is expected to be ruthless and strong, and to serve the saints with unquestioning devotion. But three years spent fighting in a never-ending war have left him with deeper scars than he wants to admit… and a fear of confronting the girl he left behind.

Now a murderer stalks Ombrazia’s citizens. As the body count climbs, the Palazzo is all too happy to look the other way—that is, until a disciple becomes the newest victim. With every lead turning into a dead end, Damian and Roz must team up to find the killer, even if it means digging up buried emotions. As they dive into the underbelly of Ombrazia, the pair will discover something more sinister—and far less holy. With darkness closing in and time running out, will they be able to save the city from an evil so powerful that it threatens to destroy everything in its path?

Discover what’s lurking in the shadows in this dark fantasy debut with a murder-mystery twist, perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Kerri Maniscalco.

Content Warning: various types of violence (shooting, poisoning, beheading), graphic descriptions of blood/bodies, death of parents/ friends/ siblings, a parent depicted with memory loss/confusion, PTSD and flashbacks, descriptions of war, prejudice, religious intolerance, hallucinations, paranoia, alcoholism, and mentions of self-harm.

“History, Roz knew, had shown it was dangerous to have a saint on earth.”

My Review of Seven Faceless Saints

Rating: 5 out of 5.

One of my favorite genre combos around is fantasy and mystery!  Combining the mystical worldbuilding of fantasy and the high stakes investigations of mysteries is the perfect book recipe for me.  Seven Faceless Saints blended these two genres masterfully, creating a supremely engaging novel that I couldn’t put down!  I especially loved the use of multiple character perspectives that M. K. Lobb brought into the story.  These were the perfect way to establish the characters and the world they live in, while simultaneously upping the stakes on the mystery plot!

My Recommendation-
If you love fantasy novels with an element of mystery to them, you need to get a copy of Seven Faceless Saints!  I would especially recommend this to fans of League of Liars or In the Ravenous Dark!

“…She was hard pressed to give a shit about the economy at all. Not when it only benefited a portion of the population.”
