Title: Mr. Darcy, Vampyre
Author: Amanda Grange
Genre: Historical Romance/Paranormal
I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.
Summary: The wedding day is magical but when Elizabeth and Darcy embark on their wedding tour, Elizabeth discovers that Darcy has a secret....
Mr. Darcy, Vampyre starts where Pride and Prejudice ends and introduces a dark family curse so perfectly that the result is a delightfully thrilling, spine-chilling, breathtaking read. A dark, poignant and visionary continuation of Austen's beloved story, this tale is full of danger, darkness and immortal love. (from Sourcebooks )
Thoughts: When I got this review request I actually squealed. Being a fan of both vampires and Pride and Prejudice, I couldn't wait to read this one.
This new story continues where Pride and Prejudice ended. Elizabeth & Darcy are off on their honeymoon. What Elizabeth thinks to be a trip to the Lake District turns into a trip across Europe. She senses right away that something isn't right, but she can't quite figure out what is wrong...
I felt that the beginning was a bit slow, but it soon picks up. Amanda Grange has done a wonderful job creating a new adventure for the much loved characters. Mr. Darcy, Vampyre is a dark, captivating read. I think Austen fans and new readers alike will gobble this one up.
Score: 4 Stars
