Finished reading Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco
Title: Hunting Prince Dracula
Writer: Kerri Maniscalco
Genre: #historicalcrimefiction #youngadults
My rating: 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️
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 am not sure if this book is young adult or not. There were times it felt so scary that I had to stop reading. Well, at midnight everything feels scary ☠️ I think this book could be called as a Crime Fiction. I added the first book to fantasy, but it is not.
The book started where Stalking Jack the Ripper ended. It’s always nice to get to read the full series after all or several books of the series has come out. The story moved forward fast, already when they we just travelling to their destination.
I liked the way the relationship of the main characters evolved. There were nice ups and downs, enough drama and tense moments. Everything felt alive and realistic. The side characters were also good with real backgrounds which is sometimes rare if they are only present in one of the books in a series.
I am waiting to read the next book in the series: Escaping from Houdini ❤
