Genre: 
YA Horror

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell, apprentices to Audrey’s Uncle Jonathan, a forensic investigator in 1880’s London, return in this sequel to Stalking Jack the Ripper. Following the previous novel’s tragic events, Audrey and Thomas are off to Romania to try for two available spots in the Academy of Forensic Medicine and Sciene in Romania, the most prestigious forensics school in Europe, housed in the Castle of Vlad Dracula.  Audrey will be the only female student ever and is expecting trouble from the male students and faculty, who expect her to be a proper lady. But trouble begins even before they reach the castle. A man on the train is murdered with a wooden stake in his chest. Other murders in the castle and the surrounding countryside follow, with the victims being totally drained of their blood.  Has Prince Dracula returned from the dead as the locals believe? Audrey and Thomas are determined to find the real murderer. An exciting mystery. We have it in YA MCN Fic Maniscalco.
