Description

In this hotly anticipated sequel to the haunting number one best seller Stalking Jack the Ripper, bizarre murders are discovered in the castle of Prince Vlad the Impaler, otherwise known as Dracula. Could it be a copycat killer...or has the depraved prince been brought back to life?

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Commentaires

"Audrey is a young woman eager to use her brains and willing to flaunt society's rules.... This mystery pays homage to classics like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein [and] will satisfy those readers looking for historical mystery, a witty heroine, and a little romance." ( School Library Connection)

Very good

I truly enjoyed the banter between the two main characters. They had a believable relationship, and the author let it develop naturally. It didn’t feel rushed or forced. The story line was capturing and I liked how it flowed. I would recommend.

Not quite there

I love the plot!!! And I love these books....however, there were more holes in this plot line than in the first one.

If it’s a school academy, then wouldn’t there be previous classes (like other grade levels)?? Audrey Rose’s uncle seems to have more students and apprentices, and he doesn’t run an academy.
Also, it seemed that all the instructors were completely emotionless. I get the whole “they have to come off creepy” thing, but if Snape could show emotion in Harry Potter, then you would think that the headmaster could show more emotion when his niece dies.
There were a few other slight plot holes that I found, but I was also disappointed with the fact that Audrey Rose seemed to have much less common sense in this story as well. It wasn’t extreme, but several times I got very frustrated when she would take much longer than necessary to figure out small things.

Hopefully Book 3 will be better now that Audrey Rose has finally gotten over her continuous bouts of ptsd from the first book. We will see!

Something sinister

This was a very good book and I enjoyed listening to it. It had blood and bones and spooky tones. At first I wasn't sure where it would go but by the end I was all in.

A tantalizing tale of intrigue and mystery, with a dash of Dracula, bats, gore, and heart racing romance!

I have very much enjoyed this series this far. Rooting for Audrey Rose and Thomas, and following their mysteries. This book was even better than the first! These characters are constantly growing, or layers being she'd one by one until their raw selves are exposed. Thomas was revealed more in this book in character wise, while Audrey Rose emotionally wise due to the outcome of the first book. I adored how the author weaved the mystery, murder, and culture in this book. I hardly put it down! I can't wait until the next!

Phenomenal story as always. The way the author entwines mystery, mischief, and romance is truly a joy to be had. I strongly recommend this book!

Didn't enjoy quite as much as the first one

I remember enjoying the first book more. I think this one was more focused on romance. There was a lot of her thinking that Thomas was trying to control her, she didn't want to be controlled, classmates/teachers not taking her seriously, did she love him, did he love her, etc. But was an ok book to read, especially around Halloween time. The description of the castle, secret passages, tunnels, etc were good.

Audrey Rose wieder in Höchstform

Kaum ist der Ripper Fall erledigt, erhält Audrey Rose die Möglichkeit, an einer angesehenen Universität zu studieren, natürlich in Transsilvanien. Und wie schon zuvor, wird sie auch hier wieder in eine Mordsgeschichte um Vampire und natürlich Dracula verwickelt. Begleitet von Thomas, in den sie bereits mehr als verliebt ist, macht sie sich auf, den Fall zu lösen. Wie schon im ersten Band wird die Geschichte locker flockig erzählt, wobei die Spannung nicht verloren geht. Wer denkt, der Fall ist einfach zu lösen, irrt, auch hier gibt es Wendungen, die man nicht hervorsieht. Die Erzählerin macht wieder einen super Job, man möchte gar nicht pausieren.

Wow

This was amazing. You can read this book without reading stalking Jack the Ripper. Practical nothing about it is revealed in this book.
The story in this book is phenomenal. Following Audrey rose and Thomas is just exiting. You can learn so much. There are darling new characters introduced, as well as some suspicious. And just like the first book, you don’t get behind the mystery until it is revealed.
