Happy Wednesday! It’s the middle of the week and I may be slumped with schoolwork, but the promise of fabulous new releases in the future is giving that me hope to push right on.
Today I will be participating in Can’t-Wait Wednesday, a weekly meme where you share an upcoming anticipated release. This is hosted by Wishful Endings!
This week I will be featuring…
Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco
Release: October 27, 2020
Publisher: JIMMY Patterson
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Historical Fic, Paranormal
Synopsis via Goodreads: 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…
Kerri Maniscalco is a queen times two when it comes to her writing. Not only does she know how to world-build the eff out of any story, but her characters have so much depth and dimension! Even though her Stalking Jack the Ripper series has a special place in my heart, I am so excited to dive into something new from her and see what magic she produces this time. Kingdom of the Wicked sounds so mysterious and sinful in all the best ways! I also haven’t read a witchy book in ages so I know this’ll be a fun time. 👏
Have you heard of Kingdom of the Wicked? If so, do you think this a book you’d enjoy? What are some other releases that you are excited for?
Until next time, happy reading! ♡
