Presents a paranormal version of the nineteenth-century novel in which an orphaned young woman, a vampire slayer, accepts employment as a governess at a country estate only to discover that the master's wife, a werewolf, is being hidden in the attic.

Simon and Schuster
“ 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.

LOVED it

I know that re-writing classics in a paranormal vein is the new fad, but I don't really see what the draw is. With all due respect, the stories seem to be 98% the same as the original, just with a few new words and paragraphs added here and there. Maybe that's the point, but I may as well just read the originals and save myself the trouble.

I had a lot of fun reading this book. It was a great twist on classical literature. Definitely worth a read for some relaxing vampire slaying content.
