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.

    Maniscalco launches a riveting new series with Kingdom of the Wicked. Emilia and Vittoria are twin sisters who are witches posing as ordinary so they can live among normal humans in nineteenth century Italy. When Emilia finds her beloved sister Vittoria murdered, she seeks the killer and vengeance. On her quest, Emilia meets a literal prince of Hell, Wrath. He offers to help Emilia, claiming he was sent by his master to investigate the deaths of young women desecrated like Emilia's sister. However, Wrath may not be telling the entire truth. Emilia must assess his trustworthiness and decide what she is willing to do to solve her sister's murder. Maniscalco delivers witches, demons, intrigue, and Hell itself in an explosive new story. 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. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside New York City, where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life's finer points with her cats. She is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Stalking Jack the Ripper quartet.
