Agreeing to Disagree

Recently on the Risky Regencies blog Amanda Grange, who I have spoken about here, talked about her upcoming novel Mr Darcy, Vampyre. I voiced my opinion that while I loved Grange's work I would not read her book. I feel that Mr. Darcy should not be a vampire. Ms. Grange was very polite about it and said I did not offend, which is great because I do love Ms. Grange's works. The site carried an excerpt from the new novel and I have to say although I am heartily sick of vampires Ms. Grange's work sounded beautiful. She has a wonderful gift for writing. I was also excited to learn that she is working on an Edward Ferris' Diary, which I really want to read. Although Wentworth is my favorite I feel that Edward has quite a story to tell. His feelings for Elinor mixing and over-riding his feelings for Lucy Steele can you imagine the turmoil? I'd love to know what he was thinking.

So although I will probably not read Mr. Darcy, Vampyre I wanted to give it a plug here since Ms. Grange was so nice about my criticisms. Vampyres maybe not be for everyone, but you might enjoy it.


  1. Thanks for posting about this:) Although, I too think Ms. Grange's writing is very good- I cannot possibly imagine Darcy as a vampire. Frankly, I find there's way too much hype on vampires these days (or Harry Potter, for that matter)but many, many people are crazy about this stuff; but I wouldn't read it either.

  2. Hi Jane, Thanks for the invitation to post a comment and thanks for plugging Mr Darcy, Vampyre. I know it won't be for everyone but I enjoyed writing it and I hope some of you enjoy reading it.
