Waiting on Wednesday: Spotlight on Hunting Prince Dracula

New WoW“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.

My “Waiting On” Wednesday selection for this week is Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco.  I just finished reading Stalking Jack the Ripper, the first book in this series,  over the weekend and absolutely LOVED it.  (I’ll be posting my review tomorrow so be sure to stop back by and check it out!)  The way that the first book ended had me just dying for more Audrey Rose and Thomas Cresswell, so I was thrilled to see that a second book is already slated to come out later this year and that it focuses on Audrey Rose and Thomas traveling to Romania together. And don’t even get me started on the book being about Vlad the Impaler.  As if Jack the Ripper wasn’t notorious enough!

Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Publication Date:  September 19, 2017

From Amazon.com:

n this hotly anticipated sequel to the haunting #1 bestseller 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.

      Same here. For some reason I originally thought it was just going to be a standalone, so it was a wonderful surprise to find out we get more of Audrey Rose and her adventures.

    I’ve seen everyone talking about Stalking Jack the Ripper and I’ve been debating on reading it. Knowing that it’s going to be a series makes me more interested. They sound great!

      The first one was very entertaining, especially the main character who is way ahead of her time but also very stubborn, so I found myself constantly alternating between “Yes, you go girl!” and “OMG, what were you thinking?”

      Oh yes, I was thoroughly entertained the entire time I was reading, so I can’t wait until we get more of Audrey Rose and Thomas. So much fun!

    I featured this one a week or so ago. Even though I still need to read Stalking Jack the Ripper, I’m looking forward to this one as well. My feature this week focuses on upcoming Prince books, since Friday marks the year since his death, but I usually feature fantasy, thrillers, mystery and horror.

    Oooo, great pick! I won an ARC of this book and I am definitely going to dig in… as soon as I get my hands on a copy of Stalking Jack the Ripper. 😀 I’ll be binge-reading the two books and then dying for the third, most likely. o_o I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week. =)
