In this hotly anticipated sequel to the haunting #1 bestseller 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.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance review copy of Hunting Prince Dracula for an honest review.
Hunting Prince Dracula is the perfect sequel with more swoon and suspense. I love how gothic this book is, and the setting was spectacular, with incredible world building set in Romania and a stunning castle. I enjoyed that there are spectacularly creepy pictures that tie in perfectly to the story in this series, I can’t wait to see all the ones that make it into the finished copy. I love that nothing is predictable with these books and keeps me guessing. This can be read as a part of the series or as a standalone.
Audrey is now enrolled in a famous forensics school in Europe. She felt she needed to learn more about the field and wanted to leave what happened behind in London. The school is in a beautiful castle belonging to the former Vlad Dracula.
Soon deaths start happening and rumors start to circulate that Dracula is not dead and that he is the one behind them. Audrey and Thomas are determined to find out who really is the one behind the murders before anyone else falls victim, and before the they get caught in the crossfire.
Is Dracula really the one behind the murders? Can Audrey solve the mystery before too many fatalities happen? You have to read this book to find out!
Hunting Prince Dracula had so much more relationship-building between Audrey and Thomas and the chemistry was undeniable. The development keeps getting better and I just can’t get enough! I am excited to see where Kerri takes the adventure next as they set off for America. I would definitely recommend this book and I am giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
