These books were in my TBR for a long time, so it was time to get started. I don't know why I hesitated so long. Maybe because I have heard many things about them.
Well, after reading Stalking Jack the Ripper I can say that I really really like it and I can't wait to read Hunting Prince Dracula (especially since it takes place in Romania where I live now).
Anyway, back to SJTR, It is a historical fiction YA book based on the story of Jack the Ripper (obviously). We follow Audrey Rose and Thomas in their attempts to find who Jack the Ripper is.
Kerri Maniscalco writes beautifully and I loved how she combined the real events with the fictional.
The story is full of twists and turns until the very end. At some parts, where they described the victims, it was a little bit creepy. Audrey Rose is an intelligent character that pushes the boundaries of societal norms in Victorian London without any hesitation. She is ahead of her time. Then we have the incredibly charming Thomas, he is sassy and smart.
While pursuing Jack the Ripper they come closer and the relationship between them is perfect. They are a very powerful couple.
To sum it up, Stalking Jack the Ripper is a very good story with suspense and great characters (Thomas for me).
By the way, at the end we get to find out who Jack the Ripper is but you won't see this coming.
