I always thought that Jane Eyre was a better horror novel than a romance, and this version proves it. It corrects one of the major flaws of the original, which is that while Jane is advertised as being spunky and independent, she is actually quite passive. Part of this is that she was written as a woman of her time, of course. But Jane Slayre has to make decisions about killing vampires and zombies, which makes her more of an agent within the world. And Rochester is still horribly horrible as a human being.

Not a spoiler, because it's on the back cover, but the punchline is, "Reader, I buried him."
