Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
It is expected to be published on April 2, 2019, by Wednesday Books.

A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.

In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light.
