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 mean 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 ...more

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

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

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

As she and Darcy are leaving for their honeymoon, Elizabeth learns they will not be traveling to the Lake District but to Europe. She’s excited about seeing new places, so she doesn’t compl ...more
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
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......more
I am afraid.
If anything happens to me, remember that I love you and that my spirit will always be with you, though we may never see each other again. The world is a cold and f

“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.”
