WoW #198 – Kingdom of the Wicked

Posted September 2, 2020 by Lillian in Features / 6 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m eagerly waiting on Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco. I really enjoyed her book Stalking Jack the Ripper—y’all don’t judge, I still need to read the rest of that series. I liked the way she blended history with her own story of the events. She created a haunting mystery and a slow burn romance that simmers with tension. That being said, I cannot wait to read her first—I assume it’s her first anyways—fantasy. The blurb says it all! And that cover? Stunning!

From the #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Stalking Jack the Ripper series comes a new blockbuster series…

Two sisters.
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 as it seems…

  1. No judgement from me! I’ve been wanting to try this series, but haven’t managed to get to it yet. I am not sure if I love that cover or find it too creepy. LOL This does sound good, and I hope you love it when you read it! Happy Reading!
