Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco Goodreads Rating: 4.34 I enjoyed Stalking Jack the Ripper. It initially was never on my radar. I read it for Spookathon last year because it satisfied several of the prompts. However, I wound up thoroughly enjoying it and decided to pick up the sequel this month after it … Continue reading Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco and Undivided by Neal Shusterman
