Review: Hunting Prince Dracula (Stalking Jack the Ripper #2) by Kerri Maniscalco
Hunting Prince Dracula - Kerri Maniscalco

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.

First off , I think this book would make a great TV show and I for sure would watch it :D 

I started this book knowing it was book two but didn’t think they are connected . For some reason I thought they are following different people and since I didn’t read book one….. yet I started it. I learned pretty early on that I was wrong but I really didn’t care at that point because I just liked it way to much. Plus If didn’t really spoil that much and I really didn’t think the Jack the Ripper book would have a HEA

I usually not a big fan of historical fiction but this one sounded interesting and it was. It was well written, it was fun and kept you guessing. The setting while was great, and I really enjoyed it.

I also loved Audrey, she was a powerhouse for her time, she didn’t let the men put her down no matter what they said or how they treated her.  She was a real trailblazer for the tiimepwriod and that was another thing I enjoyed.  She was also very funny and had many laugh out loud moments on top her sassiness.

I also enjoyed Thomas very much and it seems like her always found trouble somewhere. I LOVED them together, it was funny, sweet , sassy  and of course romantic and  bit scandals for the time period.  It also was spooky and sometimes gross, not overly so that people with weak stomachs couldn’t handle it.  Overall it was soo much fun and I cant wait to actually read the first book lol.

Also after the ending I look very much forward to book three in the series. Over all I read the book 5★ , I listen to the Audio which was fantastic.

It's one of the five books I've recently ordered and I just want to know some opinions on it. I have read what it's about on google and it sounded very interesting!

So Much More Than Expected
Stalking Jack the Ripper - Kerri Maniscalco

Surprisingly good.
Audio- excellent narration
I went into this book with a slightly negative view. I'm not a fan of the bodice ripper type reads, the whole time period is a meh for me. I was wrong, okay I said it. This book had intriguing characters, a twisted mystery that threw me off till the very end. I was totally surprised. If you enjoy a good mystery or even if you don't give this one a try you may love it like I did.

A feminist forensic pathology trainee takes on Jack the Ripper
Stalking Jack the Ripper - Kerri Maniscalco

Enjoyable historical fiction read with elements of mystery/thriller/horror depending on how you feel about all the dead bodies, and a strong teen romance bent. Good attention paid to historical detail in the world-building, but a very modern teen voice and attitude, so if you're a stickler for period-appropriate tone, that might bug you. I wouldn't have minded a touch more paranormal/fantasy, and, having just started in on the sequel, I'm enjoying the character dynamics noticeably more as they become more established, so if this first one doesn't grab you, you might want to hang in there for book 2. Pretty good unexpected twists in the wrap up too - fun when the book marketing itself sets you up for it.

Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Stalking Jack the Ripper - Kerri Maniscalco

This book hit on a lot of my favourite themes - Victorian London, a woman willing to risk her reputation to pursue a career she is passionate about, historical fiction and of course, a re-imagining of one of the most well-known unsolved murders of all time.

 

  • What I liked about this book:  the author included real photographs from the period at the beginning of many chapters.  Victorian-era London came alive thanks to these pictures and the vivid descriptions woven throughout the story.  The re-imagining of the Jack The Ripper murders was also very creative.

 

What made me go "meh" in this book:  while I found the main character, Audrey Rose interesting, I would have liked to see her character a bit more developed and given more depth. She was supposed to be a strong young woman who was fighting for her right to be considered an intellectual equal with men but then in some scenes, she practically faded into the wallpaper she was so submissive.

 

This book is definitely targeted to a younger audience (aka not me) with the romance falling more under the heading of "cute" rather than "steamy" - which is a good thing as Audrey Rose is only 17.

 

It's a quick and entertaining read but I don't feel compelled to pick up the next book in the series.  Not to say that I won't one day but it didn't leave me wanting more.
