About the Book:
In 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.

Let’s discuss the book cover…
Okay… deep breaths…
Now, like in the first book, we have Audrey Rose Wadsworth on the cover wearing her iconic read lips. There’s also that silken white dress with nice lace cuffs, exactly Wadsworth’s type of dresses to wear. In the skirt we can see a castle present and I think its safe to assume that that is the university Audrey Rose and Thomas Cresswell will be attending to take up or continue their studies on forensic science. Audrey Rose is also holding a stake where as in the first book, Stalking Jack the Ripper, she’s holding a scalpel. I’m guessing we’ll be having some vampire running jokes or theories being considered since the book’s events is set in Romania.
So that is all for this cover reveal, I’s so excited for the book! *squeals* The expected publication is on September 19 2017 (a day before my name day! yaasss!). But for now…
About the Author
Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside NYC where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life’s finer points with her cats.
Her debut, STALKING JACK THE RIPPER (JIMMY Patterson Books/Little, Brown September 20, 2016), is a Young Adult Gothic horror inspired by the Ripper murders. It’s about a Victorian-era lord’s daughter who defies society expectations by secretly apprenticing as a forensics examiner, and soon finds herself embroiled in the investigation of a serial killer who is stalking London’s East End.
