Horn Book Review

When Audrey Rose and Thomas (Stalking Jack the Ripper) travel to Romania for a course in forensics, blood-drained bodies begin appearing before they've even gotten off the train. The resulting gruesome mystery (improbably) involves Dracula's feuding Victorian-era descendants. Audrey Rose's feelings for Thomas again vacillate frustratingly between extremes, but the richly evoked historical setting and forensic details help to ground the more melodramatic moments.
