Book Review: Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange (Aug. 1, 2009)

Summary:
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.

Review:

This was a light and fun adaptation of what happens after Pride and Prejudice. Why is Darcy so brooding and miserable all the time? Well, now we know...he's a vampire! Well, there's not a lot of vampire action, and she didn't quite portray Lizzy the way I imagined her in the original Pride and Prejudice, but it was still a fun twist and well worth at least one read.

Part of the Everything Austen Challenge, Helluva Halloween and R.I.P. Challenges.

  4. I really want to read this, but I've been leery. I know I will break down and read it, though, because come on! I have to.

  6. I thought this one was just okay. Great potential though, and Darcy does spend some excellent time doing what he does best - brooding.

  7. I'm reading this one right now. It's not as bad as I expected it to be, but not exactly "can't put it down" reading either. I'm glad you liked it!

  8. I agree with Lula - I thought it was just okay. There were definitely parts I liked (especially the beginning), but I agree with you that Elizabeth did a lot out of character.

    Good review!
