A married man in possession of a dark fortune must be in want of an eternal wife...

My hand is trembling as I write this letter. My nerves are in tatters and I am so altered that I believe you would not recognize me. The past two months have been a nightmarish whirl of strange and disturbing circumstances, and the future...

I am afraid.

If anything happens to me, remember tha

This book has the most audacious title I have seen in years. In just two words, it conveys everything a reader may expect within. No mystery here: before even turning a page we know that this will be the most shameless attempt to cash in on the successes of Pride and Prejudice and Twilight yet. Yes! Let us dive into the depths of our id! Let us wallow in our love of costume dramas and supernatural romance! Let us splash around in the shallowest end of the literary pool!

Alas. This book is not so...more

I was so looking forward to this book, but it totally missed the mark for me.

For starters, nothing even remotely vampire-related happens until around page 200, with the exception of a few veiled comments that Darcy & Elizabeth's marriage won't work out because they are "too different." Elizabeth takes this to me the differences in their social statuses.

Elizabeth spends the first 200 pages wondering while on her honeymoon why her new husband has not consummated their marriage. The honeymoon h...more

Elizabeth Bennet couldn't be happier on the morning of her double wedding with her sister Jane: she's very much in love with Mr Darcy and excited about the life to come. Yet from the moment the ceremony is concluded she detects something troubling Darcy - a brief look of torment on his face, a hint of pensive abstraction, and a sudden change of plans with their honeymoon. But she also sees the look of love on his face, and if he isn't coming to her at night she's sure it must be due to some cons...more

wow...nothing at all really happens in this book. Oh, pg. 235, they finally start to talk about all the 'off' things that happened before. But still, nothing much happens.

Ok, wait, yeah, there is this really exciting part where Elizabeth is about to be kidnapped by this evil Ancient One...Oh wait, that was only about 3 pages long. Hold on (flipping pages towards the end...)Oh yeah, then there's this part where Darcy is about to FINALLY do what he was meant to do then....he stops.

Dulu waktu masih SD, gue punya temen baik yang tinggal di deket rumah, namanya Devi. Setiap pulang sekolah, kami pasti main bareng. Gue seneng banget main ke rumah Devi. Soalnya papanya Devi selalu beliin Devi buku-buku cerita. Dari buku-buku yang gue baca di rumah Devi ini lah, gue jadi tahu kisah-kisah terkenal karangan Hans Christian Andersen.

Salah satu buku yang paling gue suka, adalah buku dimana kita bisa memilih sendiri akhir ceritanya. Kalau nggak salah inget sih, dulu buku yang gue baca...more

If you do not know already, Pride and Prejudice is my all time favorite book and I have found it really hard to find any good related/sequel books. Since I love vampires and Pride & Prejudice I was really curious how this book would turn out. I’m glad to say I am pleasantly surprised by how well it was written.

The story picks up right before the wedding between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth and Jane and Mr. Bingley. I felt Grange stayed true to Lizzie’s character even while she is dealing with all...more

Imagine you are walking through a crowded shopping mall. As you walk you catch brief scents of things like the newest perfume, cinnamon buns, coffee, rubber soled shoes and human sweat. With each scent is attached a memory. The cinnamon buns remind you of the time your best friend was pregnant and everything she ate had to come from Cinnabon. The coffee reminds you of sitting at your favorite book store when you read that book, remember the one I'm talking about. The rubber soled shoes remind yo...more

Inquiring readers: The following is the third of three reviews I placed on my blog. In this instance, one is enough. I probably should have simply stayed with this one. Here, then, is Mrs. Darcy's letter to her sister Jane about her strange marriage to Mr. Darcy:



My dearest Jane,

Well, what a crock, as they say in 21st century America! I’ve had to delve a full 250 pages into Mr. Darcy Vampyre to find out what was going to happen to us. And then the plot was so rushed and jumbled that I never did r...more

I haven't read Pride and Prejudice, but this picks up on the wedding day of Darcy and Elizabeth and follows them on their wedding tour through Europe. The majority of the book is lightly hinting at Darcy's secret, being a vampire, and Elizabeth's struggles with his odd behavior. I like how Amanda Grange didn't take classic characters and make them unrecognizable with a thick paranormal twist. It's kind of like Dracula, not outlandish or theatrical. It's like a good scary monster movie, sometimes...more

BOOK REVIEW:

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre-Amanda Grange
Release: August 11, 2009
Publisher: Sourcebooks

~Sia McKye~


I’ve read Pride and Prejudice more than once as well as many of Jane Austen’s stories. I’ve also enjoyed the screen adaptations of Pride and Prejudice. I will confess, however, I’m not a big fan of Austen fan fiction.

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, aroused my curiosity. It was certainly a different take on the characters of Pride and Prejudice. Beloved Darcy as a Vampire? I wondered how Amanda Grange would h...more

When I heard Amanda Grange wrote a sequel to this classic novel and gave it a paranormal slant with Darcy possibly being a vampire, I was both wary and intrigued. I will also admit I’m not big on present day authors taking such novels from deceased authors and writing a sequel.

With that in mind, I decided to read Mr. Darcy, Vampyre and see what type of job Amanda has done with two of the most beloved literary couples of all time. I really wanted to see what happens between Darcy and his Lizzy of...more

First of all, let me be clear, I LOVE Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I hate sounding so cliche', I could just gag, but it is one of my favorite novels of all time. Although, I am reluctant to admit, I had not read it until I was 30 years old. My education had previously led me through Persuasion, Emma and Sense and Sensibility, so I was not completely Austen illiterate before then. (Who said an English Major was a waste?) Still, the idea of fan fiction? Jane Austen fan fiction? Really? Shou...more

The back of the book says "A married man in possession of a dark fortune must be in want of an eternal wife."

The cover turned out to be the most interesting part of this book. I'm not sure there are enough dull words to convey the story's lack of good elements, characters, or dialogue.

I found myself putting this novel aside several times because it just wasn't interesting. I did finish it, so maybe 1 star is too harsh. It wasn't agonizing to read, but it was blah. The vampyre parts of the story...more

This novel begins after the events of Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth and Darcy are getting married but Darcy is acting weird not knowing he is a vampire.

Okay, you will enjoy this simple gothic retelling of Dracula if you have never read Pride and Prejudice or had no expectations of it being remotely faithful to Pride and Prejudice. It is a fun simplistic Dracula love story. However, if you expected something along the lines of Pride and Prejudice, you will be disappointed.

First of all, Elizabeth...more

Horrifyingly bad. I wasn't expecting literary genius from Amanda Grange, but this book is so intellectually thin you can see right through it.

From the title, the reader knows that Darcy is a vampire (excuse me, vampyre). But it takes Lizzy three-quarters of the book to figure it out? Seriously? It's not only irritating, it's rather insulting to Lizzy. She's vapid and stupid in this sequel, nothing like the clever and bold Elizabeth of Pride and Prejudice.

Of course, that's not the only thing tha...more

Okay, I'll admit that I'm a sucker for any P&P spinoff. I actually thought this one wasn't bad. The story might have even been okay had it been written about random characters, but the author skips the usual courtship drama by using a love story that has already been written. We already know Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth love each other and the struggles they've overcome to be together.

The book begins the day Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett get married. From the beginning Elizabeth senses that som...more

I hate it when this happens. I waited and waited with bated breath for this book to come out. I mean, look at that cover! Cameo = love. Blood Splatters, a la Dexter = love. So, my advice? Just stare at the cover and don't open the book.
If you are a Pride and Prejudice aficiando like myself, you will be driven to tears and possibly more (don't eat before you read this) by the blatant disregard for everything that is Lizzy Bennett. The Lizzy I know would never ever ever ever just sit around while...more

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre was a delightful book that could have used a little more blood - or at least love bites. Although told in third-person, the novel focuses more on Lizzy's thoughts and reactions to Mr. Darcy's strange behaviors. I wish that had not been the case! It would have been interesting to see a little into Mr. Darcy's head - or at least, know his whereabouts even if Lizzy did not.

Amanda Grange presented vampyres in a unique manner, that is, one that I had not encountered (not that I hav...more

Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice are back. You may have thought you knew everything there was to know about Mr. Darcy but you don’t know the whole story. Darcy has a deep, dark secret. One that has been around in his family for many centuries. Elizabeth loves Darcy. How will she react when she learns the Darcy’s true identity?

I have to admit that I have never read Pride and Prejudice but I have always been interested in this time period. So I hadn’t experienced the love connectio...more

TYPE OF AUSTENESQUE NOVEL: Pride and Prejudice Sequel, Paranormal

TIME FRAME: Begins the morning of Elizabeth and Darcy’s wedding in October 1802

MAIN CHARACTERS: Elizabeth Darcy and Mr. Darcy

WHY I WANTED TO READ THIS NOVEL:
- I’m much more into vampires and paranormal novels than I was in 2009 when this novel came out (never read any vampire novels until Dracula, My Love by Syrie James)
- It is the only Austenesque novel by Amanda Grange I haven’t read.
- It is October! I’m in the mood for something...more

Now, before I start, lets all just take a deep breath together, and let out all the negative vibes we have felt from this deeply emotionally traumatizing book. Ready? 1..... 2..... 3..... and BREATH............and EXHALE. Better? Ok, now, to get down to the knitty gritty of this grimly old book. Mr. Darcy Vampyre... what a book. As a certain hydrant-sized friend of mine would say... "WHAT THE HECK ARE THEY DOING TURNING A JANE AUSTEN NOVEL INTO A VAMPIRE LOVE TALE?! THEY DIDN'T EVEN SPELL VAMPIR...more

RATING: 1.5 stars for joining two of my favorite topics: Pride and Prejudice and vampires + 0.5 stars for the cool cover. Oh and 0 stars for story.

As any good Pride and Prejudice sequel, "Mr Darcy, Vampyre" opens with the Bingleys and Darcys joint marriage. After the happy event, the newlyweds go on their wedding tour. Elizabeth thought she and Darcy would go tour the Lakes... but, boy, was she wrong! Without any explanation, Darcy decided to take her to Europe. And Elizabeth, being as OOC as sh...more

If you're a diehard Jane Austen fan or an avid reader of vampire novels, step away from this blog. Ignore this review. If you're like me and not really a fan of either, stick around.

Let me say upfront, I loved this book.

Mr. Darcy Vampyre by Amanda Grange begins with the wedding day of the two Bennet sisters. Elizabeth begins her new life as Mrs. Darcy and will be going on a surprise wedding tour our Europe even though things are still unsettled in France. In their journey Elizabeth begins to fea...more

Ah...this book had so much potential. I was so excited to read about Mr. Darcy as a vampire, only to be thoroughly disappointed. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books of all time and I have a strange fascination with vampires. The thought of Mr. Darcy as a vampire seemed exciting and I was looking forward to seeing how the story would unfold. Unfortunately, this book was a dud. The book started out great, with Elizabeth questioning Darcy's demeanor and why he would not come to visit he...more

“No", she wanted to say. " I don't want you to care for me, I want to be with my husband." But nothing came out. She turned beseeching her eyes to Darcy and she saw him as if from a great distance, through a distorting glass, but his words were firm and clear. “She has no taste for your company,” he said.

“No?” said the gentleman. “But I have a taste for her.”

Hers, thought Elizabeth. He should have said hers.

“Let her go,” said Darcy warningly.

“Why should I?” asked the gentleman.

“Because she is mine,” said Darcy.

The gentleman turned his full attention toward Darcy and Elizabeth followed his eyes.

And then she saw something that made her heart thump against her rib cage and her mind collapse as she witnessed something so shocking and so terrifying that the ground came up to meet her as everything went black.”
