Mr. Darcy, Vampyre: Our Reviews

Dear readers, This weekend marks a time when both Laurel Ann and I will be reviewing Amanda Grange's new book, Mr. Darcy, Vampyre. Sourcebooks was kind enough to provide us with advance review copies, for which we are grateful.

Lately much controversy has been brewing regarding the direction of these sequels. While some people are fully on board and enjoy the Jane into Monster sequels, others have deep reservations. You can count me (Vic) among the reserved. While I anticipated reading Ms. Grange's latest offering with some excitement, it took me fully one month to slog my way through her Regency vampyre world. Thankfully, Lizzy Bennet came to my rescue as I sat down to review the novel, for she has written three letters that explain the book better than I ever could. Here then are some links for your edification. As always, please don't hesitate to let us know what you think.

Controversy can be good. It means more people will be learning about JA's works.

I have said in the past, as long as people are reading it's O.K. with me but suddenly I am getting a very bad taste in my mouth with all these otherworldly treatments of the classic books I love.

I won't be reading any of them...
