Publisher's Summary

Two sisters. One brutal murder. A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself....

A new series from the number one New York Times best-selling author of Stalking Jack the Ripper.

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....

Amazing!

What a wonderfully crafted story that sweeps you in right from the start and keeps you listening till the very last word. The world is so detailed in its description that it seems as though you are truly there, and the banter between Wrath and Emilia is hilariou. The development of their relationship is believable, with just the right amount of tension and attraction -- perfectly paced. I can't wait for the sequel!

Kingdom of the wicked

It's been a long time since I have been fully captured by a story but this had me gripped. The narration was perfect, looking forward to part 2.

Couldn't finish

I gave up with this one. For me, the story lacked substance, and was very predictable. The protagonist got on my nerves too. Narration dronned on.

Kingdom of the wicked

Desperately hoping there is going to be more. The story was amazing and the way the narrator told the story was beautiful and brought the story to life. She has one of those voice like Morgan freeman or Peter Dinklage just someone who you could list to all day

Fantasy novel or cookbook?

If I had $1 for everytime the word "cornicello" was said... Narrator was constantly at this high pitched / shakey tone. No power or interest in any of the characters. couldn't decide if I was listening to a Fantasy or a cookbook? overused cooking terms without any direct link. Such a slow paced novel, totally a miss for me.

Wait for book 2

Overall the plot book is extremely generic and predictable. Hopefully book 2 (when released) will redeem the series.
