“A Prince of Hell’s greatest pleasure is causing discord. Before an attack, his irises turn darker than a starless night with flecks of red, a sign of his wicked bloodlust. Do not engage them in battle; you will never win. – Notes from the di Carlo grimoire”
Two sisters. One brutal murder. A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself… And an intoxicating romance.
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.
A perfect read for this time of year. This book is filled with dark magic, witches, demons and all things bad.
This is my first book by Kerri Maniscalco and I must say, her writing is beautiful and really drew me into the story.
I absolutely loved this dark world that is built around Sicily, Italy. I also loved how Kerri drew in the love of food and what was being cooked. It definitely had my mouth watering. This also made the whole story seem real and relatable.
I throughly enjoyed the plot and the whole murder mystery aspect. It’s not something I would have gone for. The characters were memorable and I loved how Emilia grew and changed. I also loved how the author kept you in suspense throughout the book
As always I don’t want to say too much, in fear I will spoil it.
Perfect for a last minute Halloween read and I would definitely recommend.
