The amazing book series written by Kerri Maniscalco has Witches demons and the devil himself. The Story follows the life of these twin girls who have a prophecy to fulfil. When Emilia’s twin sister is murder, she is pulled into this world that she knows very little about and has to survive while trying to solve her sister’s death.
The kingdom of wicked is the realm of hell which is ruled by the princes of the seven sins, Lust, Greed, Wrath, Sloth, Envy and Pride. Our Lovely Emilia accidently summons the Prince Wrath who has a mission to find out why witches are being murdered, one of them being Emilia’s Sister, so with having a common cause they end up working together.
The story has a rich Italian culture as our main character is born and raised in Italy. Being a witch in a highly Christian era and country makes her life difficult as she has to hide her identity her whole life.
This series is very detailed with amazing world building, intricate plot and plot twists. The reader also only knows what Emilia knows so they themselves feel the frustration and stress she feels while figuring out all these secrets that everyone in her life has kept from her.
The first book ends with Emilia signing her soul over to the devil to become his wife and Queen, the only reasons she makes this sacrifice to save her family and to figure out who in the underworld had her sister killed and why they did it.
In the second book Emilia learns that she knows even less about hell than she thought, everything works differently there, the realm itself enhances your most darkest desires which doesn’t help with her budding feelings towards Prince Wrath who she’s not sure if she can rule him out yet as a murder suspect.
I truly enjoyed this series and can’t wait for the third book to come out and continue reading Emilia’s story.
