Review

Praise for Kingdom of the Wicked:

"An intoxicating, tightly plotted feast for the senses with a dramatic cliffhanger."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling series Stalking Jack the Ripper:

*"A marvelous yet somewhat gruesome mystery...an unexpected twist makes the ending worth the wait. A must-have." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Audrey is a young woman eager to use her brains and willing to flaunt society's rules....This mystery pays homage to classics like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein [and] will satisfy those readers looking for historical mystery, a witty heroine, and a little romance."
--
School Library Connection

"Audrey Rose is a witty, resourceful feminist who refuses to bow to Victorian-era gender norms. This dark, gothic landscape is peopled with nuanced, diverse characters who keep readers enthralled. A gripping mystery with a compelling heroine and just the right touch of romance." --
Kirkus Reviews

"Audrey Rose Wadsworth prefers breeches to ball gowns, autopsies to afternoon tea, and scalpels to knitting needles. Though her father, Lord Edmund, has forbidden it, Audrey covertly studies forensic medicine...while "the Ripper" remains two steps ahead, lurking where Audrey least expects....Maniscalco's portrayal of scientific invention in a newly industrial era will serve as a fine first foray into Victorian classics."
--
Booklist

"Every bit as heart-pounding as you'd expect it to be...An enthralling, captivating, and addicting series."--
Hypable

"Kerri Maniscalco once again combines adventure, romance, murder and Victorian manners into an intoxicating cocktail that brings the story of this tenacious young forensic scientist to a satisfying conclusion."--
Knoxville News Sentinel

"Lyrical writing and an immersive atmosphere accompany a well-built world rooted in 19th-century Palermo, especially evocative descriptions of food prepared in the family's restaurant, while intriguing plot twists round off the novel."--
Publishers Weekly

"Maniscalco has created a serious, sharp-minded, and forward-thinking protagonist in Audrey Rose, whose fearlessness will endear her to readers looking for an engaging historical thriller. Abundant red herrings and a dash of romance round out this gruesome but engrossing story."
--
Publisher's Weekly

"There are plenty of suspects and red herrings as well as tense escalations....A scenic, twisty mystery." --
Kirkus Reviews

The characters are richly drawn; the worldbuilding is smart, based on historical events and infused with magic; and the page-turning plot is a force to be reckoned with. Food, family, magic, and romance are threaded into this propulsive story, making it a thrilling, wondrous, and atmospheric tale.--
Booklist
