In this New York Times bestselling sequel to Kerri Maniscalco’s haunting #1 debut Stalking Jack the Ripper, bizarre murders are discovered in the castle of Prince Vlad the Impaler, otherwise known as Dracula. Could it be a copycat killer…or has the depraved prince been brought back to life?
Following the grief and horror of her discovery of Jack the Ripper’s true identity, Audrey Rose Wadsworth has no choice but to flee London and its memories. Together with the arrogant yet charming Thomas Cresswell, she journeys to the dark heart of Romania, home to one of Europe’s best schools of forensic medicine…and to another notorious killer, Vlad the Impaler, whose thirst for blood became legend.
But her life’s dream is soon tainted by blood-soaked discoveries in the halls of the school’s forbidding castle, and Audrey Rose is compelled to investigate the strangely familiar murders. What she finds brings all her terrifying fears to life once again.
Kerri Maniscalco has done it again! This has quickly become one of my favorite Historical Fiction Series. I mean she drew me in with Jack the Ripper and Victorian Era, what could be better, and made me stay with her fantastic writing. Then she follows it up with Hunting Prince Dracula?! This is a woman who knows what she is doing, and I love it.
We follow up with the wonderful Audrey Rose Wadsworth and the cunning Thomas Cresswell in of course none other than Romania, at a school of forensic medicine. In this book we learn some interesting things about Mr. Cresswell, but I won’t spoil those for you. We also get to meet his sister but it’s not all fun and family reunions. When people in the Castle start to die it becomes a new investigation for Audrey Rose and will uncover something much more sinister than they wanted, especially straight off from the tragic Jack the Ripper case.
These are beautiful written stories about such captivating subjects that she makes so much her own wrapped in. I have to say, such gorgeous covers. I am completely on the edge of my seat for more from Kerri Maniscalco. If you haven’t started this series…what are you waiting for?!?!?!
