Hello Gemmies! I am beyond excited!! One of my absolute favorite authors, Kerri Maniscalco revealed the cover and first chapter for her new novel Kingdom of the Wicked today!! Like her beloved Jack the Ripper Series, this new series promises to be full of action, adventure, love, and historical goodness! Kingdom of the Wicked is set to release later on this year on September 15th.
Synopsis of Kingdom of the Wicked from Good Reads: Emilia and her twin sister Victoria are strega - witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Victoria 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 discover who did this, and to seek vengeance at any cost—even if it means using dark magic that’s been long forbidden.
Then Emilia meets Wrath, the outlier among the seven demon brethren, always choosing duty over pleasure. He’s been tasked by his master with investigating a series of women’s murders on the island. When Emilia and Wrath’s fates collide, it’s clear this disturbing mystery will take a bewitching turn
