Thomas Cresswell, ruining my expectations for boys since 1888.

This book was a ride, much in the same vein as SJTR but dialled up to 11. This time, I didn't guess the outcome, and it might be because my mind has been so busy with classes, but I really just enjoyed the journey to the final insanity this time, instead of figuring it out halfway through.

Overall, Kerri's writing is just as engrossing this time. Her characters are vibrant, I love Audrey Rose and her early badass feminism SO MUCH, and we don't even have to talk about Thomas Cresswell because come on. The only reason I'm taking a star off is because there was a chunk of the book right in the middle where I was losing some interest; I wasn't completely absorbed the entire time, but when I was into it, I really was into it.

A fantastic book that deserves a lot more recognition. If you love mystery, thriller, suspense, bloody history and a dash of romance, this book is for you.

The second book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco, Hunting Prince Dracula is set in Romania and, I believe, is a few weeks after the events in the first book. This book I thought wasn't as fantastic as the first however it still keeps me enthralled in this world and these characters. The different setting is refreshing and with a new mystery to solve for our protagonist, Audrey Rose Wadsworth, this book keeps me excited to get my hands on the third and wait patiently for the fourth. 5/5 Stars. @SeraphinaWilliams of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Because Stalking Jack the Ripper was so good, I decided to dive headlong into the sequel, Hunting Prince Dracula, as my first read of the year. I was very happy to see a continuation of certain themes, introduction of new ones, and a change of venue. I don't know much about Romania or the legend of Vlad Dracula, so this was educational as well as enjoyable. The setting was delightfully macabre- Bran Castle, with its towers and secret passageways and echoey halls. Audrey Rose and Thomas' relationship was enjoyable as well, if a bit angsty at times. It is refreshing to see a male love interest actually treat the lady as his equal, and not a damsel who needs saving. They really are an intelligent and formidable duo, and I honestly can't imagine one without the other. Thomas' shameless flirting is adorably endearing, and Audrey Rose encourages him with the intent of pursuing a relationship with him. Thomas' social flubs towards the beginning of the story are completely believable for his character, as are Audrey Rose's reactions. I was also happy to see the latter dealing with what happening in SJTR- it was completely traumautizing (without giving anything away) and I'm glad to see that Audrey Rose kept getting flashbacks of the basement and had to deal with it. This is a novel where it would behoove the reader to read the previous book before starting this one. All in all, a solid, decent sequel with a believable plot, a devious mystery and a bit of romance. I would definitely recommend it if you enjoyed the first!

I really enjoyed reading Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco and was really excited to find out that she was making it into a series. Hunting Prince Dracula is the 2nd book in the series and did not disappoint. Its just as dark and twisted as the 1st in the series.
