Summary

All hail the king and queen of Hell.

Two curses. One prophecy. A reckoning all have feared. And a love more powerful than fate....

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of the Stalking Jack the Ripper series comes the dazzling conclusion to the Kingdom of the Wicked trilogy.

Emilia is reeling from the shocking discovery that her twin sister, Vittoria, is alive. But before she faces the demons of her past, Emilia yearns to claim her king, the seductive Prince of Wrath, in the flesh. Emilia doesn't simply desire his body, she wants his heart and soul—but that's something the enigmatic demon can't promise her.

When a high-ranking member of House Greed is assassinated, Emilia and Wrath are drawn to the rival demon court. Damning evidence points to Vittoria as the murderer, and she's quickly declared an enemy of the Seven Circles. Despite her betrayal, Emilia will do anything to solve this new mystery and find out who her sister really is.

Together Emilia and Wrath play a sin-fuelled game of deception as they work to stop the unrest that's brewing between witches, demons, shape-shifters and the most treacherous foes of all: the Feared.

Emilia was warned that when it came to the Wicked, nothing was as it seemed. But, have the true villains been much closer all along? When the truth is finally revealed, it just might end up costing Emilia her heart.

Disappointed 😞

I have enjoyed this series and enjoyed this book until the end. The last 8 chapter or so were a huge disappointment. I find it a hard one to rate as I was gripped for the most part. I liked certain elements of the story but this is something I don't say often there was too much sex. Emilia was very fixated on sex (good for you girl you get yours) but I wanted more story between her and Wrath than constantly reading about her tumble in the sheets nearly every time they were together. I wanted the passion and the story build up they had in the previous book before they bonked each others brains out. Too much was brushed under the carpet in terms of story it could have been a better build up to the finale which sadly never came to much. The narration really was the crowning glory the narrator does such a good job of building the suspense of the story.

Could Have Been Shorter

I really enjoyed the first two books, especially the second one, but this one just seemed to drag on. I was getting a bit bored part of thecway through and had to force myself to finish, which is a shame.
I think the main issues for me were 1. every intimate scene was interrupted. It got to be eye rolling by the end. and 2. it just got predictable and I just felt like it could have reached a conclusion faster. Dare I say there was just too many sex scenes (never thought I'd write that!) But honestly, I just wanted them to figure stuff out and get it solved.
Don't be put off though. It's a great story and has a few unexpected twists.
I do think the narrator might have a lot to answer for. Her tone and infection was the same for every character and it got a bit annoying.

A final disappointment

It turned out like a 50 shades of grey but with demons, and that’s not a compliment. I felt some of the descriptions repetitive and corny and even some plageriasm (I felt) from other novels about a famous wizzard. Unfortunately, at the
end it was a final disappointment to close the
trilogy.

I thoroughly enjoyed it

I loved this series! ok, there were parts where I was screaming at the naivety of the main character and the sometimes roundabout way conclusions within the story were reached but overall, I couldn't put it down.

HELLISHLY BEAUTIFUL 🤩

“Be present. And that’s the secret to changing your future.”
~ Kingdom of the Feared (Kingdom of the Wicked, #3), by Kerri Maniscalco

Erotic, eerie, beautifully written and mesmerizing once again, the third and final installment of this hellishly magnificent trilogy was the perfect read for the beginning of October.

Packed with all my beloved characters, with phenomenal descriptions of the Houses of Hell once again, and a plot that escalated quickly, the last book of the series wrapped up everything beautifully, without leaving questions or holes.

I loved the fact that there were no villains, simply… anti-heroes. I loved how everyone, from Emilia, to Vittoria, to the Princes of Hell, all of them had an agenda of their own and goals they wanted to achieve.

I didn’t mind guessing all the revelations, even from the first book in the series. I was so fully invested in the world that all I wanted was… MORE! 🔥

If you haven’t read the Kingdom of the Wicked series yet, then I suggest you do so quickly! This trilogy is a sin you’ll be glad to follow!

Five glorious stars for this beauty, that made the trilogy an all-time-favorite for me; a series that was there for me from the beginning of 2021, to the end of 2022. ✨

The stars will always incline us–they’ll never bind us!
To the many more rereads that will come!

Didn’t cut it

I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn’t get into it. The storyline seemed overly complicated and the gaping plot holes left the book feeling incomplete. Super disappointed.
