Blood Begets Blood

Maybe it's a little late for me to be on the Internet poking around but when I saw "Mr Darcy, Vampyre" ...well after my experience with "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" I had to call on my inner Nancy Drew and investigate.

Flower, where oh where will all this classics-meet-the-undead end? Will "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" be hungry for blood? Mother Goose? Mary had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow and everywhere that Mary went the blood was sure to flow. To Kill A Mocking Zombie? Will Scarlett O'Hara be Scarlett for a different reason?

From the publisher's website:
Sourcebooks Landmark Announces New Major Release: Mr. Darcy, Vampyre
Sourcebooks Landmark, the leading publisher of Jane Austen-related fiction, is excited to announce a major release in the category: Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by international bestselling author Amanda Grange. Amanda Grange's style and wit bring readers back to Jane Austen's timeless storytelling, but always from a very unique and unusual perspective, and now Grange is back with an exciting and completely new take on Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet in Mr. Darcy, Vampyre. "Amanda Grange is our internationally bestselling author of Mr. Darcy's Diary," says Sourcebooks acquisitions editor Deb Werksman, "and we were so excited when she came to us last year with this brilliant vision for an altered Darcy. Amanda starts where Pride and Prejudice ends and 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, this tale is full of danger, darkness and immortal love." Sourcebooks has announced an on-sale date of August 11, and a 75,000 copy first print run.
