(Read my short review on the whole series here)

*4.5 stars*

Trigger warnings: cadavers, displaced viscera (If you survive book 1 you’ll be fine with this one too)

Hunting Prince Dracula is the second installment in Stalking Jack the Ripper series. After the tragic ending of the Ripper case, Audrey Rose was trying to lead a normal life in a Romania forensic academy while suffering from PTSD. Unfortunately, there seemed to be another murderer on the loose, hunting her classmates one by one. Teaming up with Thomas Cresswell again, Audrey Rose must solve the mystery before it was too late, while conquered her inner fears in the process.

For those of you who felt Stalking Jack the Ripper bit too slow for your taste, worry not! The pacing is a lot faster in this book, which I devoured in one day! Imagine studying in a big, ancient castle with secret tunnels! That left Audrey Rose and Thomas a lot of grounds to investigate and a lot of adventures. If you love trapped doors, escape rooms, old European castles, and thrilling adventures, you’ll enjoy this even more than the first!

I also love reading about their classes at the academy. Compared to book 1, we get to see more of their dissecting process. The book also has strong Romania folklore elements—as the title suggests—which I had no prior knowledge of. It was fun to read how well the folklore correlated with this murderer case.

We also have some exciting new characters—meet Daciana, Thomas’s amazing sister, who is a bit of the mix between Thomas and Audrey—vibrant, mischief, smart and independent. I was in love with her at first sight. Audrey also has some interesting more classmates and peculiar (or annoying?) teachers.

This book bounded me with Audrey Rose. I didn’t care for her much in book 1, but now I finally understand her emotions and personality, I find her so relatable. While it might be a little frustrating to read all kinds of her fears, paranoia, and worries at times, it only seemed natural after what she went through with the Ripper case, and I appreciate the humanity in it. In a way, I needed this mourning and healing process with her as well.

If you love the suspense and thrill in Stalking Jack the Ripper, I’m sure you’ll also love Hunting Prince Dracula. It’s the perfect sequel: it retains the similar elements readers love, with enough new twists that keep us on edge. And of course, more sweet, slow-burn romance between Audrey Rose and Thomas. ( )

I love the action-packed plot and the Cressworth content! Can’t wait to read more! ( )

What a fun ending this book has! I didn't see the big villain surprise coming, but it wasn't frustratingly obscure. I think the fast paced excitement of this book is what makes it such a good audiobook. Also, Thomas and Audrey Rose have the best witty banter! ( )

The eerie castle setting and the travels through the tunnels kept me wide awake as I was reading this engaging adventure. Very enjoyable. Looking forward to the next in the series. ( )
