Mr Darcy, Vampyre introduces a dark family curse so perfectly that the result is a delightfully thrilling, spine-chilling, breathtaking read. A dark, poignant and visionary continuation of Austen's beloved story, full of danger, darkness and immortal love. Elizabeth Darcy is the happiest woman alive when she steps into the carriage that is to take her on her wedding tour - until she sees the look of torment on Mr Darcy¿s face and discovers that he has a deep, dark secret that nearly destroys their love, their marriage and even her very life. Darcy and the rest of his family are vampires that cannot be outside during sunrise or sunset. Lady Catherine is at the source, having turned Georgiana into an undying friend for her vampiric daughter, Anne, and then Darcy as the perfect mate for Anne. Now Lizzy and Darcy must travel across the Continent to the Pyrenees to find a way to break the curse. But Lady Catherine won¿t give up her undead without a fight...The Y in Vampyre is a tribute to the first vampyre story in print in the English language called simply The Vampyre.  It was written by John Polidori, a physician in the employ of Lord Byron and who, whilst staying by Lake Geneva with Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary's stepsister Claire Clairmont amused themselves by reading and writing ghost stories.  Two of the greatest horror stories came from that night Mary Shelly¿s Frankenstein and The Vampyre.

Take "Pride and Prejudice," take away the strong personalities of the characters, and stick them into a thinly veiled rip off of "Twilight" and you have this book.

I thought this book is a nice light read. Wouldn't say it was the best book I ever read but I wouldn't call it a waste of time either.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has spawned a whole slew of Jane Austen-monster hybrids. Not only is Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters lurking on bookshelves nearby (due Sep. 15, 2009), but Mr. Darcy, Vampyre waits in the shadows and Jane herself is a vampire out for revenge in Jane Bites Back (due Dec. 2009, along with Vampire Darcy's Desire). When vampires, werewolves (maybe Werewolves at Mansfield Park?), and zombies starts breeding with the great classics of literature, well, that?s some wild monster love.
