BLOG TOUR: Jane Slayre by Sherri Browning Erwin and Charlotte Bronte (Book Review 2010-62)

Product Description

“ 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.

Werewolves and Vampires and Zombies and Ghosts, OH MY!  Jane Eyre takes on a whole new twist with the most recent mash up of classic novels done with a paranormal twist.  I thought this book was really well written and a pleasure to read.  It has been a long time since I read Jane Eyre but from what I remember, this version stick pretty close to the original, well if Jane was raised by vampires, Rochester turns out to  be a werewolf and the school Jane ends up at produces zombies for household help.  

Jane Slayre is very inventive and the voice of Jane is true and clear.  I am now waiting for two more of my favorite classics to be demonized:  Vanity Fair and Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

  1. Glad you enjoyed Jane Slayre too! I'm kind of hoping that Sherri Erwin will do a mashup of Wuthering Heights next.

  2. I also had fun with this one. It was a good book. :)
