About the Book



"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"--

Review Quotes




*"A marvelous yet somewhat gruesome mystery...an unexpected twist makes the ending worth the wait. A must-have."---School Library Journal (*starred review*)

"An intoxicating, tightly plotted feast for the senses with a dramatic cliffhanger."--Kirkus Reviews

"Audrey is a young woman eager to use her brains and willing to flaunt society's rules....This mystery pays homage to classics like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein [and] will satisfy those readers looking for historical mystery, a witty heroine, and a little romance."
---School Library Connection

"Audrey Rose is a witty, resourceful feminist who refuses to bow to Victorian-era gender norms. This dark, gothic landscape is peopled with nuanced, diverse characters who keep readers enthralled. A gripping mystery with a compelling heroine and just the right touch of romance." --- Kirkus Reviews

"Audrey Rose Wadsworth prefers breeches to ball gowns, autopsies to afternoon tea, and scalpels to knitting needles. Though her father, Lord Edmund, has forbidden it, Audrey covertly studies forensic medicine...while "the Ripper" remains two steps ahead, lurking where Audrey least expects....Maniscalco's portrayal of scientific invention in a newly industrial era will serve as a fine first foray into Victorian classics."
---Booklist

"Every bit as heart-pounding as you'd expect it to be...An enthralling, captivating, and addicting series."---Hypable

"Kerri Maniscalco once again combines adventure, romance, murder and Victorian manners into an intoxicating cocktail that brings the story of this tenacious young forensic scientist to a satisfying conclusion."--Knoxville News Sentinel

"Lyrical writing and an immersive atmosphere accompany a well-built world rooted in 19th-century Palermo, especially evocative descriptions of food prepared in the family's restaurant, while intriguing plot twists round off the novel."--Publishers Weekly

"Maniscalco has created a serious, sharp-minded, and forward-thinking protagonist in Audrey Rose, whose fearlessness will endear her to readers looking for an engaging historical thriller. Abundant red herrings and a dash of romance round out this gruesome but engrossing story."
--- Publisher's Weekly

"The characters are richly drawn; the worldbuilding is smart, based on historical events and infused with magic; and the page-turning plot is a force to be reckoned with. Food, family, magic, and romance are threaded into this propulsive story, making it a thrilling, wondrous, and atmospheric tale."--Booklist

"There are plenty of suspects and red herrings as well as tense escalations....A scenic, twisty mystery."--- Kirkus Reviews

I wasn't overly impressed when I started this book. I guess I felt it had a slow start because it wasn't until she did the summoning circle (somewhere around page 70) that I actually started getting interested in this book. After that, though, I fell in love with it! I enjoyed the banter between Emelia & Wrath & you could just instantly tell they were into one another even if they didn't want to admit it. If I remember correctly, this first book was relatively tame but by the next/second book, I was surprised they're listed as young adult since things eventually get a bit graphic! I ended up binge reading all three books in about five days lol. I would say this is one of my favorite fantasy/scifi romances.

Don’t mind me imma just be googling summoning spells to try and summon a Prince of Hell because I want one. Mostly Wrath. I want Wrath. I’ve been DYING to read this series and finally get to meet Wrath all year. I made myself wait until Kingdom of the Feared came out so that I could binge the series. And the wait was worth it! I know this series gets mixed reviews, but I was into it. Are they the most intriguing characters? No. Is it the most well written plot? No. But I still really really enjoyed it. It was the perfect read to start off spooky season and overall I was intrigued and I couldn’t put it down.
