About The Book:
(from Amazon)

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.
My Thoughts:
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!)


  1. I hated Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, could not even get through it. I did purchase Jane Slayre for my Kindle against my better judgement... I do not mind vampires but zombies really creep me out. Might be a fun read when I am laid up after next Tuesday...Love your background by the way!!

  2. I've read both bad and good mash-ups, but I thought this one was a good book! I had fun with this one.

  3. I just don't care for these type books. They're very popular right now, though.

  4. LOL that seems to be the thing with these books....either readers love 'em or hate 'em.
