Part 1: Main Characters of Becoming Dark Prince

Audrey Rose Wadsworth

Dark Prince Audrey

I like that the female lead here in Dark Prince is something that’s uncommon for that era. Audrey Rose has a progressive type of personality, who believes that women can be as strong as men.

She is determined and always eager to find solutions.

She can be violent when she loses her temper. She was unable to experience freedom until she was sent to the Romanian Academy of Forensic Science and Medicine due to her hysterical and paranoid father, and as a result, she is unwilling to give up any of her independence or freedom. She does not want anyone, especially a man, to make decisions or choices for her.

Audrey Rose becoming Dark Prince was born a lord’s daughter to Edmund and Malina Wadsworth. She lived a life of money and pleasure. She does, however, conduct a forbidden secret life as Audrey frequently disobeyed her strict father’s orders and defies social norms such as visiting her uncle’s lab to learn about the horrific field of forensic medicine.

Audrey is much interested in science until she was drawn one day to hunt a mysterious killer. I love this kind of characterization of Audrey Rose, though the story is set in an era where women’s strength is a challenge, the author didn’t fail to give us her own definition of a strong woman, a strong female lead that suits that era, and that was Audrey Rose of’Dark Prince

Thomas Cresswell

Dark Prince Thomas

Many readers of Dark Prince are falling in love with Thomas. Why not? Read the Dark Prince to find out yourself what kind of guy Thomas Creswell is in Becoming The Dark Prince.

Thomas can be charming when it is needed. Thomas is regarded as being quite tall, frequently towering over other guys. He’s described as having golden-brown eyes, dark brown hair, and being lanky. Thomas has the ability to read people.

Thomas first appears in the story as he enters his professor’s lab on the same evening that Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her uncle were rehearsing a postmortem there. Thomas pays Audrey Rose little attention throughout that encounter, yet later on as they are swept into more adventures, the two fall in love with each other.

The only downside for me is that Dark Prince is just a novella. So, this is basically short, and I want more of Thomas! It was like I was given all the good stuff and I was really enjoying it and then it ended instantly. This book, Dark Prince, will give you that kind of feeling.
