Summary:
 
In a land torn apart by violence, the fragile peace of the world lays in the hands of one tattered warrior.

It has been thousands of years since the fall of the great nations and the tribes that remain in the ashes of the fallen must fight to survive in the shadows. In this desperate landscape, Ailive has spent her entire life fighting for the honor of her tribe and she has grown weary of war. When Ailive sees a chance to escape her fate, she flees into a chaotic landscape where death and darkness lurk behind every friendly face until she finds refuge in the peaceful city at the center of her world. In this city, Ailive finds everything she’s ever dreamt of, but news of a strange prophet from the South brings whispers of war to Ailive’s peaceful home. Now Ailive alone can stop the genocide of an entire tribe of people. Ailive alone holds the key to bringing peace to the world and destroying the monstrous man whom she once loved, if she can only gain the courage to pick up her sword again and make herself fulfill the destiny she’s fought her entire life.

Adventure, romance, and betrayal that's how I would describe The Twilight Saint. I was really impressed by the way that the author Jessica Penot handled the world building in her book. I know that it is probably one of the hardest parts if not the hardest part about penning a novel and I have to say that Jessica really knocked it out  of the ballpark.
 
I just found the whole world that the novel was set in, it was so interesting and unique and very different from any other fantasy novel I've read and I enjoyed that part a lot because I felt like there was always something new and interesting to be explained and I loved seeing the events in the novel through Ailive's eyes. I thought she was a wonderfully strong character and she took a lot of crap from a lot of people and life tried it's hardest to bring her down but she kept her head above water and I really admired her.
 
As much as I liked those aspects of the book I do wish the plot that the novel had been a little stronger and a little more clear because some things were confusing but that could just be because the author is leaving a lot of things to be explained in the second book in the series. Overall I really enjoyed the mix between the good guys and the bad guys in this book and it really was an adrenaline filled read.
 
I really would recommend this book to fans of the fantasy genre with a bit of a dystopian twist especially if you want a book that keeps you on your toes like this one did for me.
