About The Book:
“ READER, I BURIED HIM . ”
A timeless tale of love, devotion . . . and the undead.
Jane Slayre, our plucky demon-slaying heroine, a courageous orphan who spurns the detestable vampyre kin who raised her, sets out on the advice of her ghostly uncle to hone her skills as the fearless slayer she’s meant to be. When she takes a job as a governess at a country estate, she falls head-over-heels for her new master, Mr. Rochester, only to discover he’s hiding a violent werewolf in the attic—in the form of his first wife. Can a menagerie of bloodthirsty, flesh-eating, savage creatures-of-the-night keep a swashbuckling nineteenth-century lady from the gentleman she intends to marry? Vampyres, zombies, and werewolves transform Charlotte Brontë’s unforgettable masterpiece into an eerie paranormal adventure that will delight and terrify.
If you saw my review on Sense, Sensibility, and Seamonsters, you know that I love these mash-ups. This one was no exception to that rule! I like that the author kept the sense of 'Jane Eyre' while at the same time making it her own. (well as much as one can make a mash-up their own LOL) Seriously though, I never really have very long reviews to give on these because you either love these or you hate 'em. I'm a lover so I'm biast. *smile*
Mash-up fans will enjoy this one! (I mean hey....I STILL love Vampires!)
