Passionaries

(Part of The Blessed)
For Ages: 14 and up
Three modern-day teens have been reincarnated as saints—or so they’ve been told. Kirkus Reviews calls this dark, thrilling follow-up to Precious Blood that blends the gritty with the miraculous “a terrific second volume.”

As we learned in Precious Blood, Agnes, Cecilia, and Lucy “may be saints, [but] they are definitely not angels” (Kirkus Reviews). They watched as Sebastian sacrificed himself for what he believed in, and now they have choices to make of their own. Will the girls trust in their destinies as saints and martyrs and perform the miracles as Sebastian instructed? Or will they lose faith in themselves and each other in his absence? Time is running out for them to make a decision, and the fate of the world lies in the balance.
