“”Bone white. Blood red. Along this path, you’ll soon be dead.”
Following the horrifying revelation of Jack the Ripper’s true identity, Audrey Rose Wadsworth flees her home in Victorian London to enroll as the only female student in Europe’s most prestigious forensics school. But it’s impossible to find peace in the dark, unsettling Romanian castle that houses the school—and was also once home to the depraved Vlad the Impaler, otherwise known as Prince Dracula.
When a series of troubling deaths brings whispers of Vlad’s bloodthirsty return from the grave, Audrey Rose and her sharp-witted companion, Thomas Cresswell, must unravel the cryptic clues that will lead them to the shadowlike killer—living or dead.”
Let me start by saying if you have not read Stalking Jack The Rippee then you need to stop what you’re doing and get your hands on a copy!!
The second book is about Audrey Wadsworth and Thomas Creswell attending a medical training school in Romania in none other than Dracula’s castle . When students turn up murdered (drained of thier blood) Audrey and Thomas can’t help themselves and slowly uncover the castles and Dracula’s mysteries.
Audrey is still affected by events in the 1st book and at times can’t trust her own eyes or mind. Thomas tries to do what he thinks is best for Audrey and attempts to help her cope. This turns out to create alot of friction between the two. Thomas in his own way is just trying to show he cares but Audrey finds it stifling. It was heartbreaking to see thomas so vulnerable at times to then have Audrey crush him. In the end their relationship gains trust and respect for one another.
Hunting Prince Dracula has a lead who enjoys dissecting bodies, her partner in adventure who is handsome and swoon worthy, witty dark banter, sexual tension, mystery, murder, secret orders, Romanian folklore, and a ton of history on both Dracula and Vlad the Impalor. All and all these add up to a fantastic read and I highly recommend the series!!
