Agnes, a suicidal Catholic schoolgirl, Lucy, a notorious teen socialite, and Cecelia, a street musician on her own, are all lost girls who end up in the same emergency room on Halloween evening. They later discover that sometime during their hospital visit, they have been gifted with beautiful bracelets, each with a different amulet. The amulets eventually lead them to a decommissioned church and mysterious, beautiful boy named Sebastian who believes that their destinies are entwined in a battle of good versus evil.
The Blessed is the first book in a trilogy by Hurley, the author of the popular Ghostgirl series and involves readers in the lives of three girls who are somehow connected to martyred saints who lived centuries ago. This book has many interesting twists on the usual supernatural themes.
