Publisher's Summary

The Last Magician meets A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue in this thrilling tale filled with magic and set in the mysterious Carpathian Mountains where a girl must hunt down Vlad the Impaler’s cursed ring in order to save her father.

Some legends never die....

Traveling with her treasure-hunting father has always been a dream for Theodora. She’s read every book in his library, has an impressive knowledge of the world’s most sought-after relics, and has all the ambition in the world. What she doesn’t have is her father’s permission. That honor goes to her father’s 19-year-old protégé - and once-upon-a-time love of Theodora’s life - Huck Gallagher, while Theodora is left to sit alone in her hotel in Istanbul. 

Until Huck arrives from an expedition without her father and enlists Theodora’s help in rescuing him. Armed with her father’s travel journal, the reluctant duo learns that her father had been digging up information on a legendary and magical ring that once belonged to Vlad the Impaler - more widely known as Dracula - and that it just might be the key to finding him. 

Journeying into Romania, Theodora and Huck embark on a captivating adventure through Gothic villages and dark castles in the misty Carpathian Mountains to recover the notorious ring. But they aren’t the only ones who are searching for it. A secretive and dangerous occult society with a powerful link to Vlad the Impaler himself is hunting for it, too. And they will go to any lengths - including murder - to possess it.

Amazing

I absolutely love Jenn Bennett's writing, and have been obsessed with her books since I read Alex Approximately a few years ago. I was a little apprehensive about this book because it is so different from her typical YA romance books, but I absolutely loved it. The characters were complex and fun; I couldn't get enough of Theo and Huck. I was enthralled by the mystery of the rings, and the descriptions of the various places the duo traveled. I suppose I shouldn't have been too surprised this book would be excellent since all of her other works are, but this one blew me away. Perhaps what elevated it to an even greater level of success was listening to the narrator of this story. She did such an incredible job with the voices, accents, and inflection. I couldn't stop listening! Would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Especially if you're already fans of Bennett or love a good adventure romance story. A must read.

Unique fantasy

I really enjoyed this story. It’s really unique in it’s take on biological magic gifts & I don’t think I’ve read a series based on Vlad Dracul that is like this. Vampires, plenty but just witches basically? No, and I loved it. 5/5, cant wait to read more from Jenn Bennett.

A nonstop Indiana-Jones-style adventure

I was a little hesitant about this book at first (I don't remember why) but man oh man am I glad I listened to it. It was so fun! It's an Indiana Jones-style adventure set in the 1930s in Turkey, Bulgaria, and Romania. Theo, daughter of treasure hunters, is constantly on the run from occultists as she races to find her father who disappeared while searching for Vlad the Impaler's bone ring. The action is pretty much nonstop and the tension still somehow manages to continue to ratchet up as secrets are revealed. The story is told in Theo's POV as she reads her father's journal and tries to chase him down, but is interrupted occasionally with chapters from her father's journal that give insight into him and the mystery surrounding the bone ring. The narrators do a great job, and the story is a wonderful adventure. Highly recommend.
