Hello my book friends, if there are any of you, I know I haven’t posted anything book related for a while but I hope this finds the right people.
Todays post is one I’ve wanted to talk about for a while because honesty I suffe0red a big book hangover with this one. Kingdom of the Wicked is a fantasy book based on a a girl in Italy called Emilia, who basically seeks vengeance over her twin sisters death…did I also mentioned she’s a witch? Her nonna has always warned them of the Wicked, which is a bunch of princes of hell, 7 of them, they’re all basically the representations of the 7 deadly sins and are named after them too. And of course our MC ended up summoning the Prince of house Wrath of them all and they work together, kind of.
Now, I don’t want to give too much away so I will try and keep it as spoiler free as possible but this is you WARNING of POTENTIAL SPOILERS.
I adored the book, I genuinely got upset when I finished and realised I had to wait until October to get the sequel. Words cant even describe how jealous I am of those who got to read the proof for it. The reasons I loved it are simple, it’s SO easy to read, like seriously, everything just flows as it should and I don’t feel like I’m having to use my brainwaves to picture how things should be because the book describes it well enough. Then there’s the characters and their character building. Emilia changes quite a bit from how she is at the start to what happens at the end but it MAKES SENSE. She changes to achieve her goal, it works well and I was genuinely surprised by the end of the book.
You follow her and Wrath on this journey with their hate/love banter and witty remarks to each other. I love them together (not literally) and I hope the second book finds them, together (in every way) because honestly in my heart they’re end game and I will be very upset if it doesn’t turn out that way. Lmao yes I’m too emotionally invested in two fictional characters…you wait till I do a post on my thoughts on ACOTAR!
But on a serious note, well done to KM because my heart and soul are attached to this series and I don’t think I’m ready for the absolute heartbreak if things don’t pan out as I’ve imagined them. I haven’t felt this way about a book in a LOOOOOOOONG time so thank you for bringing back my love for books and good storytelling. I’m such a sucker for fantasy romances with the dark and normally evil guy.
I gave the book 4.5 stars because something at the end left me a little confused. But I’m sure it’ll make sense in the next one!
Until the next post,
Sincerely S x
