One brutal murder.
A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself…
And an intoxicating romance.
Emilia and her twin sister Vittoria are streghe – witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Vittoria misses dinner service at the family’s renowned Sicilian restaurant. Emilia soon finds the body of her beloved twin…desecrated beyond belief. Devastated, Emilia sets out to find her sister’s killer and to seek vengeance at any cost-even if it means using dark magic that’s been long forbidden.
Then Emilia meets Wrath, one of the Wicked-princes of Hell she has been warned against in tales since she was a child. Wrath claims to be on Emilia’s side, tasked by his master with solving the series of women’s murders on the island. But when it comes to the Wicked, nothing is at is seems…
Kingdom of the Wicked is my first book by Kerri Maniscalco and I loved this book. Right now I’m currently reading her first series Stalking Jack the Ripper. Kingdom of the Wicked is the story of Emilia a witch and Wrath, a demon Prince of Hell.
“Whatever you do, you must never speak to the Wicked. If you see them, hide. Once you’ve caught a demon prince’s attention, he’ll stop at nothing to claim you.”
Emilia is a witch who lives among humans, with her family and her twin sister Vittoria and she worked at the family restaurant. She lived as a human and her grandmother helped to learn more about being a witch and she told her to stay away from demons especially from the princes of hell.
She listened to her grandmother warnings until the night she found the body of her sister and she vows that she will find the killer of her sister.
“One will crave your blood. One will capture your heart. One will steal your soul. And one will take your life.”
She needs answers to find her sister killer and she summoned Wrath, a Prince from hell, and created a bond between them. Wrath and Emilia began to work together to uncover the truth about the death of her sister and who is killing the witches.
‘Lethal. Beautiful. Wholly untouchable. I wanted to kick him for being so dangerously breathtaking.’
I loved the world created by Kerri Maniscalco. I loved the chemistry between Wrath and Emilia and I liked how they worked together to solve the mystery around the killings. Kingdom of the Wicked ends in a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to read the second book in the series. Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco is great and I recommend to everyone who loves fantasy.
