Review by Greta van der Rol:
This book starts off with a fairly routine YA premise - a sixteen year old girl (TJ) finding herself dumped on her estranged father when the mother she despises dies. Coming from a wealthy, upmarket life style and a private school, she's faced with a new life in an impoverished, dying mining town where Latinos do what they can to survive. TJ's brother, Tony, the only person who cares about TJ, is a serving soldier due to return to active service, leaving her to cope on her own. Before he goes, he makes her promise to keep away from Roman, a young man working for her father.
It's obvious TJ isn't going to keep away from Roman. But many things about this novel are not obvious.
And then there's Roman. He's described as a seventeen year old juvenile delinquent who is sent to live with Ben as a form of rehabilitation. From the outset it's obvious he is dark and dangerous. But how dangerous? And who to?
In a way this is the usual YA coming of age story, but it is so much more. There's a thread of dark fantasy - or call it myth - which begins as a hint, then coalesces in the latter part of the book and brings it to a thumping, heart-stopping climax. It's a book about love, acceptance, sacrifice and redemption on many different levels. The characters are all well-developed, real people with pasts and futures and reasons.
The writing is sensual and evocative. This is no skim read. You have to pay attention or you'll miss things. Perhaps that is my only criticism. The description is rich and real.
I really enjoyed this book. My YA days are far behind me and it would be sad to imagine that this is just a story for 'teens'. It's not. I give it *****.

At first I wasn't really sure what to think about this book, the story absolutely floored me. I was never quite sure where it was going, but was very willing to keep reading to figure it all out. The electricity between Roman and TJ is so immediate you just "feel" that there is more than meets the eye there. The trouble being TJ promised her brother Tony to stay away from Roman. Add in TJ's mom has died, and she is being moved in with a dad she hasn't seen since she was five. From a wealthy life to an impoverished one, TJ must make a lot of changes.
I most certainly never expected the twists and turns this book took, it took my breath away and left me filled with absolute admiration for Kennedy Streath. The style this book was written in was also new to me, I must say I truly enjoyed it, it's almost a rough and gritty form of story telling. I look forward to the next book, you have made a fan for life! Many thanks for gifting me this ebook so I could read and review it.

When I started reading this book, I wasnt sure I was going to like it. It begins with a teenage girl who has just lost her mother, if you could call her that, and then had to go live with a father that left her when she was an innocent 5 years old and had no idea what was going on. I expected this to be a story of her finding her place in a small town, learning to love her father and all peaches and cream in the end. this was not the case at all! Much to my surprise and excitemnet, it was anything but peaches and cream. We fairly quickly learn that there is another plot entirely at work here. The father is an ex drunk just trying to get by, relying on a priest to help him make decisions and his son, who we find out the priest practically raised because the of the fathers habits and that's just the beginning. We meet Roman, a dark soul who appears to be a troubled teen but in reality is so much more. He becomes the unsuspected hero and protector to the girl who really has no idea what she has walked into with this family and town. All this and we havent even talked about the brother and his girlfriend!! The brother seems like there is so much more to him but it is held back. We get just enough to keep us wondering about him. I am really anxious to see his story in the upcoming book!
this book is full of twists and turns and I just could not put it down! When it ended, I was like "what!! that's all? There is so much more that I want to know!" I highly recommend this book, just keep going past the teenage girl coming into her own thoguhts and before you know it, you will be transported into something deeper, darker and so much more intriguing!!!

I first started reading Saints and Sinners in the author's blog many months ago. The best thing anyone can ever say about a book is, in my opinion, that for something from a genre and style I normally wouldn't be interested in, this was completely engaging.

The Roman character is terrific. There's depth, a rich voice, and believable emotions. I liked everything about this book, especially the captivating ending. It paid off for me very well. I recommened this book, over and over again.

When I started reading this book I had the impression that it was going to be a coming of age story about a teenage girl dealing with the loss of her mother.It kind of had a bubble gum feel to it.But boy was I ever wrong, because it turned out to be much,much more.Indeed it is about a teenage girl dealing with issues, but not by any means issues any of us had to deal with as teens.Kennedy Streath has written characters with many marvelous layers and by the time those layers are peeled back you are knee deep in paranormal magma.Kennedy gives you just enough information to make you yearn for more.When all is said and done this book was an amazing read,very well written and had all the wonderful qualities that made it into a bonafide page turner.

Roman, oh Roman! Shew! Strong silent type is epitomized brilliantly by the way this author captured Roman's enigmatic character. The mystery boy with a brutal secret is magnetic Wow, so many secrets, a twist I could never anticipate, and just freaking incredible writing.

When I started reading I was highlighting phrasing I loved and stopped after a few pages realizing I'd be highlighting the entire book, page after page. 'suburbia potholed with compromise', eyes the color of penance' etc. I absolutely devoured this novel. The writing was so crisp and succinct, the descriptions enough to bleed darkness into my fingertips and riveting to such a degree that I stayed up all night reading this. Fatigue never set in, I just read and read for ten hours straight and when I closed the last page I NEEDED more, I wanted so much more.

The plot is complete, I'm just a glutton for wanting more of this charismatic boy-man and his shimmering black love.

Basically the story starts off with the death of a mother (if you can call her that). Oh how I related to the narcissistic misery that was her mother. Shipped off to live with a father she doesn't know and an older brother who is Mister combat with a capital C (Tony is also a soul you'd like to see more of), when he deploys the night she gets 'home' leaving TJ alone with a stranger and Tony's shrapnel scarred girlfriend.

And then it gets good! Holy moly! At first I wondered if it was YA, but it's not. The main characters may be 16 and 17 respectively but the mine is a central character, adult issues and worries are all over this plot, and there is a brother/uncle/priest who is carrying keys to phenomenon I'm positive he knows more about but isn't telling.
