“I glanced around at the newly cleaned washroom. Liquid flames reflected off each dark surface, reminding me of spilled blood catching the moonlight. Like the bodily fluids leaking from Jack the Ripper’s double-event victims. I swallowed the image away.

I really enjoyed Kerri Maniscalco’s sequel to Stalking Jack the Ripper. Hunting Prince Dracula has such an eerie feel that I was immediately transported to Bran Castle. I also really enjoyed where the author took her characters’ arcs. You can read my mini-review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      “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.

  1. I had Hunting Jack the Ripper out from the library but ended up having to return it before I read it. I was so disappointed! This looks fantastic too! I can’t wait to get started on this series.
