I don't read vampire novels much these days but this one lured me in by tapping a particular weakness I have for the Bronte family, most especially the women. I suspect all of us who are fascinated by the Brontes have a favourite and mine is Emily. Gea Haff is clever to have chosen Anne, though, whom I suspect must be her personal favourite. Anne is the least appreciated and admired and discussed of all the Bronte women, in that her books are realist fiction, rather than high Gothic melodrama, a ...more

Gea Haff pens an extremely passionate and contemporary depiction of the literary stalwart Bronte sisters as "Nightwalkers." A cleverly written, gothic tale of the Bronte sisters' modern lives as victims of their vampire makings while navigating modern society, love and death.

The author's passionate writing and development of the modern Anne Bronte makes the reader fall in love with this tragic hero, immediately, and empathize with the realities of her life since the 19th Century. A truly unique

Un libro de género romance vampiril, con narradora en primera persona explicando todos sus pensamientos/sensaciones estilo 50 Sombras de Grey. Que, eh, si eres fan del género, pues puede que le encuentres gracia. Si no lo eres y, además, tienes la consciencia de que no te guste que justifiquen y edulcoren comportamientos violentos/de abuso sexual... pues no es el libro para ti. Igual que no fue el libro para mí.

Written by a firefighter paramedic I met this week at a conference. Looking forward to reading it.

I just finished the book. It's great. I've never been a Bronte fan but now I guess I'm going to have to read a biography and one or two of the sisters: books

Gea Haff’s debut novel is now available on Amazon and it’s destined to be a cult classic.

If the cover art isn’t enough to peak your interest, read the first 10 pages and I promise you’ll be hooked.

Gea Haff writes beautiful and intelligent prose. The dialog is superb. The characters are well-developed and lovable; and the scene set so perfectly that halfway through the first chapter you’ve already forgotten to read with a critical eye. You’re sucked into the world Haff has created so completely t

I won this book as part of a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

Anne Bronte is no more. A nightwalker, she now goes by the name of Anne Bell, a paramedic that will only work the night shift. Claiming a skin condition as the reason for her aversion to the sun, Deputy Santos believes there is more to her than meets the eye as does the new ER doctor. But it's Professor Hardcastle who seems the closest to discovering her secret. With an Alpha on the loose killing young women, Anne must decide if she wil

Bu türde o kadar çok okudum ki, yeni bir vampir romanı okumanın pek de meraklısı değildim açıkçası ama beni cezbeden, yazarın karşıma bir vampir olarak Anne Bronte'yi çıkarıyor oluşuydu.
Sonuç olarak Anne de kurguyu kurtarmayı başaramadı. Bir ara Emily çıkageldiğinde yeniden ümitlenmiştim, fakat bu Emily'nin benim zihnimde nerdeyse somutlaşmış Emily'ciğimle hiçbir ilgisi yoktu.
Sözün özü, her yerde gördüğünüz, üçüncü sınıf tabir ettiğim vampir hikayelerinden hiçbir farkı yoktu bunun. Bilindik konu

I won this book as a giveaway - I originally entered the contest based on the written description of the book. When I got the book I was totally blown away by the quality and story telling ability of the author. I highly recommend this book and have already lent it to several friends who also loved the story!

I've always liked Charlotte Bronte and her style of writing, not so much the other two. Haff's style fits my idea of Anne. That being said, it was entertaining.

I won this book as a Goodreads giveaway.

Haff dies a wonderful job of putting a unique spin on the genre of fiction that is epitomized by Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by making Anne Bronte the creature herself.

So, I am rating my own book! And I am giving it five stars (I know, I know--Anne would never do such a thing!) because I've read it at least a hundred and ninety nine times and I am still utterly transfixed by Anne.


With a trio of Bronte sisters to choose from, two of whom are perennial favorites, plus their wildly wayward brother Branwell, why write a novel about Anne? Grave, quiet, serious Anne? Why not Charlotte of Jane Eyre fame? Or Emily, creator of the savagely gothic Wuthering Heights? Wh

In retrospect, I’m not entirely sure how Haff pulled this story off…but she most assuredly did. And doing so was no small task. Beyond my assumptions that the author is a well-read fan of the Bronte family (the 19th century literary family credited with such classics as Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre) I have no clue what inspired such an interesting hybrid of genres. Whatever the inspiration, I’m glad it took hold and compelled Haff to see this project through.

Gea Haff does a wonderful job of interweaving an exciting, fast-paced Vampire story, with accurate historical flashbacks on Anne Bronte and her siblings. Obviously she is quite knowledgable about the Brontes and her information on them is quite accurate. This book is a delight to read, especially if you are a Bronte fan, as her insights into their personal lives back in England are deep and insightful. The story is based in Asheville, North Carolina and Gea does a nice job of setting the story i ...more

I won this book from Goodreads First Reads giveaway and I’m so glad I did. I enjoyed reading this book and couldn’t put it down. I loved every bit of it and highly recommend it to others. Ms Haff did an excellent job of showing off the Blue Ridge Mountains and Asheville area as well as bring vampires and Anne Bronte together in the same story.

Hello Dear Fellow Goodreaders!

I am a firefighter/paramedic/flight medic and a writer. I am also a life long student of religion, a passionate lover of story, and am perpetually fascinated by the mysteries of love and death.


I am in love with books. Infatuated. Obsessed. I am haunted by the thought that there are so many wonderful stories to read, essential stories, important, life altering ones, a

“I am Death Walker, Grief Bringer, Daughter of Carnage. I have walked through fields of blood, nimbly stepping over corpses the way a dancer steps onto a stage. I am the Queen of War, knee deep in fallen life, up to elbows in warm failing flesh. The slip of intestine against my fingers, the feel of once strong hands gripping at me, begging me to save them.” 0 likes
