really liked it
bookshelves: my-favorite-reads, vampire-tales
Read in August, 2009

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 when they show you the monster it looses it's thrill and scare factor, this keeps the monster in the back of your mind when odd things happen and the intensity grows. I will definitely be picking up more of her books, not all are with a paranormal element but I like her style and imagery.
I wish the ending had a bit more to it though, well that is the same with any good book. You crave just a bit more, don't let it be over.

Shannon (Giraffe Days) I'm curious about this one, and tempted. What's it about (aside from Darcy being a vampire? - how is that worked in?)

Shannon (Giraffe Days) Ooh sounds good! See if I can get hold of this soon.
