Now they're just being silly!!!
First there was Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, it came out in April of this year and I read it (here's my blog on that book).
It's actually a fun, though strange, book, especially if you know P&P backwards and forwards.
But noooow....we have Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange.
Just when you think it's safe to go back to the bookstore!
Apparently Ms. Grange starts her story where Pride and Prejudice ends and introduces a dark Darcy family curse.
Okay, like....how the heck did we miss that the man was a vampyre???
I'm sure she explains it.
Ms Grange also wrote Mr. Darcy's Diary which I have read. It was okay not my favorite Mr Darcy background book. The best of those might be Pamela Aidan's trilogy of books in the Fitzwilliam Darcy: Gentleman series. I enjoyed Ms. Aidan's books, there are three of them, and read them simultaneously while rereading P&P.
Mr Darcy, Vampyre comes out in August. I doubt if I will be able to stop myself from reading it. Hopefully it will be as fun and lighthearted as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
I wonder what's next???? Elizabeth Bennet-Darcy, Werewolf????
