Jane and the Damned by Janet Mullany

Summary:

Our beloved Jane Austen has been turned into a vampire. The entire Austen family heads toBath, where lies the only known cure. Napoleon’s troops invade, take over the city, and make their way across the island. It is up to Jane and the rest of the Damned to defeat the French and drive them out of the country.

Opinion:

Surprisingly pleased. I’ve read a few biographies on Jane Austen and enjoyed the parallels. Had to keep reminding myself that Mr. Darcy wasn’t going to show up and save the day. I did enjoy the book, but it didn’t end the way I expected. Recommend.
