Review

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

Praise for the #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling seriesStalking Jack the RipperHunting Prince DraculaEscaping From HoudiniCapturing the Devil

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

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

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

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruxaria, Príncipes do Inferno e uma dosagem de romance
Reviewed in Brazil on 26 April 2021
A mocinha é uma bruxa que busca vingança pela morte da irmã gêmea (não é spoiler, tem escrito na sinopse isso). Seu objetivo é descobrir quem é o assassino e fazer ele/ela pagar por isso. Com um plano em mente ela acaba invocando um demônio e as coisas saem um pouco do controle. (Risos pq vc que leu sabe como foi hilário isso depois de descobrir a verdade do feitiço).

🔸️ Nosso mocinho que na verdade é um vilão, Príncipe do Inferno tem como objetivo "ajudar" a bruxinha e investigar a morte de outras bruxas.
🔸️ A história: Como bom livro de fantasia o primeiro livro é uma introdução ao universo, a magia e personagens. Cada detalhe precisa prestar atenção pois é neles que você descobre a verdade de muitas coisas.
 Por ser um universo onde as bruxas vivem entre nós escondidas a prática da bruxaria é quase nula nesse primeiro livro, onde foca mais na magia dos Príncipes do Inferno, demônios e maldições.

🔸️ Não espere um romance em primeiro lugar pois esse livro não é foco, e sim a família, vingança e descobertas sobre si mesma. Assim como em outros livros dessa autora, ela procura primeiro os interessantes da mocinha do livro, como seus direitos, sua força e teimosia para depois focar em um possível romance.Creio que o segundo terá isso e muito mais.
