M.K Lobb's dark fantasy debut, "Seven Faceless Saints," finds former lovers trying to upend an unjust system that favors descendants of all-powerful saints. Despite the fact that everyone in the kingdom of Ombrazia is of saintly ancestry, only those bestowed with the power of the saints live in luxury, while the rest, considered "unfavored," are forced to battle on behalf of the kingdom. Rossana Lacertosa, a disciple of Patience, wields her own powers alongside the rebellion after the ruthless murder of her father by the Ombrazian military. On the opposing side of war is guard Damian Venturi, whose loyalty to the saints wavers when he considers his betrayal of Rossana. When Ombrazian citizens, disciples, and unfavored alike begin turning up dead, the former lovers put aside their differences to save their kingdom from a common enemy that threatens to ruin Ombrazia forever.
