Stalking Jack the Ripper
Stalking Jack the Ripper | Kerri Maniscalco
Presented by James Patterson's new children's imprint, this deliciously creepy horror novel has a storyline inspired by the Ripper murders and an unexpected, blood-chilling conclusion... Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life. Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world. The story's shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this dazzling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.

This months OwlCrate box came with a cute tote bag inspired by a book I read recently(ish)!! And it came with a little lantern!! I have no idea why, but every time I see a lantern on display somewhere I have the oddly specific urge to pick it up and use it to navigate a dark and definitely enchanted place like a book character. NOW I CAN! Even if it‘s just my room with the lights off 😅

Chrissyreadit I love it! I think lanterns are magical too. 1w

I liked the story and the characters a lot… until the end, which fell a bit flat. I would have preferred a totally unexpected reason for the ripper‘s actions, or a totally unexpected identity, and I didn‘t feel the final twist gave us that. I liked the narration of the audiobook (yes, I was on an audiobook roll!).

I am a teacher making the most of her time off and I got to indulge in reading a book in one sitting - it‘s been awhile since I‘ve done that! I couldn‘t put this one down, even if the corpse stuff took some getting used to and I guessed the ending. There‘s a sequel involving Dracula and I‘m interested in it purely for the Thomas/Audrey duo.

Johanna414 I thought book 2 was even better than book one! 2mo
BriannaT @Johanna414 that‘s good to hear! I legit just bought 10 books on a trip and now I apparently need to buy one more! Worth it though. 2mo

This didn‘t get exciting until about the last 70 pages or so…I was a bit bored. I liked the idea of it, and the attitude of the main character, but this one just a “meh” for me.

It was good for the most part. It threw me for a loop at the main reveal. So as a mystery it was good. I didn‘t like the MANY times Audrey Rose mentioned she was “white” though. It seemed unnecessary to know she was white-passing. And the men mostly annoyed me. Thomas grew on me after a while though. Though he did irritate me at first. But it was a solid 3 stars for me.

This story was a bit slow. I kept wishing for the MC to be the clever one, but instead it was the male lead Thomas who was noticing clues and details. Audrey Rose‘s main characteristic was that she was female because the reader was constantly reminded by the main character. No real romance in this one, only mild flirting. The forensic science parts were mildly interesting. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don‘t mind the artistic liberty taken with the Jack the Ripper murders, but it just seems to prattle away endlessly and the “tension” between the 2 MCs is inconsistent and not that appealing. I‘ve been trying to read this one since September but it wasn‘t all I‘d hoped.

This was a really interesting story. I love all the true crime stories about the case of Jack the Ripper so was interested to see how this might go. I really enjoyed the mystery of it and of course the identity of the killer. I liked the blend of fact and fiction. It was good the author kept to the main details. The plot was steady and built to the inevitable yet well written climax. I had just about guessed the identity. 4*

This was a fun re-read and I listened on audio this time. Same narrator as Jackaby series. Now I remember it and can move on to the next book in the series. Really a great spooky book with a strong female lead who loves science and uses it to stop Jack the Ripper and save innocent women from being murdered.

I am going to finish this book but somewhat begrudgingly... Audrey Rose is constantly putting down other girls and that just doesn't sit right with me. She acts like she's better than them. I like that she wants to be both girly and strong but she doesn't need to put down others to do so. And the constant corset slander! Also I'm not seeing too much chemistry between the two leads. Oh well...

Suitable for Falloween 😱 This YA horror mystery is the first of a “historical fantasy” series. The main girl is strong & empowered, but the mystery is pretty obvious very early on and there is a lot of “romantic tension” that tends to get repetitive rather than endearing.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the plot twist I caught on to it but not too early that it ruined the story for me. Audrey Rose is a very entertaining and interesting main character and Thomas very much reminded me of the Sherlock Holmes character. However unlike Sherlock Holmes when the evidence was given I didn‘t feel like they had discovered knowledge without me it felt like I was coming to the conclusion at the same time 5 🌟

I love a fast paced book of adventure and action. This didn‘t have either. Not my genre, goth or murder, and this was not a good one to give it a taste. Not as gruesome as expect. Enjoyed Audrey Rose being so headstrong, with her emotions ruling many thoughts into trouble, in a world that looks down upon girls. The plot is so slow going, felt I had to force myself to read anything. Was hoping for more mystery, but Thomas had it all figured.Not her

This is not my type of genre at all. Death and mystery? Nah girl. So this is me trying something new for the coming year. Although I am interested is stories that have women taking back their power from those that exploit and attack them

I liked this book BUT as someone who watches A LOT of true crime and a lot fiction crime, I just wish it would have been more. I felt it was a lot more about her life then actually picking apart Jack the Rippers mind. I felt who Jack was was very obvious and what he was doing wasn't as big of a shock as the author thought it would be. I really hyped this book up and was a bit disappointed. I will give 3.7/5 stars and will continue with the series.

I have seen this series all over the place so was excited to read the first book. Maybe my expectations were too high? I thought it was good, but not great. The MC is smart, but immature and foolhardy- she does some really dumb things for as intelligent as she is. I liked Cresswell a lot, the mystery was good. Not sure if I‘ll continue the series.

This was a quick and easy audiobook to get through. The banter between Audrey Rose and Thomas is cute. While the subject of the book, Jack the Ripper and his murders, is heavy, the story flows well and it never feels too gruesome. I recommend this book if you‘re looking for something simple. I‘ve already picked up the second book in the series, Hunting Prince Dracula, just to see where these two end up next!

🎧 I didn‘t realize this was YA until it was too late to turn back 😆 the typical tropes popped up but were pretty easily forgiven. Many info dumps were given verbally VS shown (ugh). I still found it entertaining & will be reading Haunting Prince Dracula. This is a bit of a mash-up of CSI meets Jack meets Frankenstein with a budding romance. Not sure if I‘d have gotten through the book if I had to read it, the narrator was fabulous! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️2/3
