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 😀
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.
