I must admit that I was on the fence about Stalking Jack the Ripper (you can see my review here).
In reality (and this will make me seem so shallow!), there were 2 things that made me read this book. 1 being vampires (!) and 2, Thomas Cresswell!!!! I simply loved Thomas and I really wanted to know more about him and, more importantly, if he was going to get the girl!
Here is the blurb for Hunting Prince Dracula:
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.
Now my obsession with Thomas Creswell is out there (!), take a look at my review:
CJR THE BRIT REVIEW
Back in the world of Wadsworth and Cresswell who are hot on the tail of Vlad the Impaler!
I’m not going to sat anything about the plot at all! Apart from the reveal. It was great!
I enjoyed this book more than book 1 and, like SJTR, I love the way Audrey Rose is scandalized at things that today we wouldn’t even bat an eyelid at! I also like that she has grown up a bit in this book and isn’t so naive.
Thomas Cresswell. Oh Cresswell you made this book for me (as he did in book 1!) I mean when a gentleman gasps this out you know he is a keeper ‘I refuse to believe you’ve misinterpreted my affections. I am wholly in love with you.’ Oh Thomas!
