"Wow! When I first picked this book up, I thought "I might like it". Turns out it was amazing!! This book had me almost crying(just because if the sister bond) and it had me laughing so much. I didn't think all the little things they said were going to mean so much. The plot twist I kind of saw coming, but it was still good. Loved the characters(even the evil ones). Can't wait to read the next book!"
"It took me a little bit to get into this one and I went back and forth on how I felt about it for most of the story. In the end I can say I did like it, but some of the plot felt rushed or not completely developed like others in this genre. I am starting right into book 2 and hope it gets even better. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"
"3.5/5 ⭐️ I would honestly give this a 4 star if it wasn’t for the lazy writing. So much was left to the readers imagination without explanation. You would think for a book that’s set in Italy, we would get some magnificent clothing, views and what not but none of that. Oh well, I certainly liked both Emilia and Wrath. But the execution of the book could have been better."
"Phew! This one was so good!! Deals with murder, magic, devil, and the 7 deadly sins. The main character really ****** me off because of her constant bad choices. The storyline is amazing and does have some twists and turns included.It does have demons and other supernatural entities and it really creates for an interesting book. Again this is a trilogy, unfortunately I didn't know that the next one isn't out until August and it definitely leaves you wanting more from the book. "
"I was a little disappointed in this work. Yes, there were some spicy and delicious scenes which I did enjoy, but an overall story wasn't her best work at all. I was surprised I was able to finish the novel honestly because it started out extremely slow. I didn't get into real action until like chapter 16 or 17. Stalking Jack the Ripper was AMAZING so I thought this series would be up there with it. She's a really good Author. The potential was there, but it wasn't worth the hype. I personally do not recommend this novel or series. "
