Waiting On Wednesday .... Kingdom of the Wicked

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco

Here is the Goodreads synopsis
The #1 New York Times bestselling author Kerri Maniscalco introduces her next blockbuster series, a dark, intoxicating tale of a beautiful young witch, a troubled demon, and their epic romance, set against a lush 19th century Italian backdrop.

Emilia and her twin sister Victoria are streghe - 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...
Witches are definitely having a moment in young adult literature right now. There are so many amazing sounding witchy reads coming out within the next year.

Witches seem to be a new upcoming trend for the later half of 2020 and into 2021. Kerri Maniscalco's new series is just one of the many witch centered reads that will be releasing and I am definitely in. I am a huge fan of the paranormal genre and I am loving this resurgence that we seem to be having.

Kerri's previous series, which started with Stalking Jack the Ripper, is one that I am definitely enjoying and I look forward to seeing what she'll do with this take on witches.

The book, unsurprisingly, has a fall release date which will have it perfectly timed for the spookiest season.

Expected release date - September 15, 2020
