Jane Vows Vengeance: 06/20/14
Jane Austen is my favorite vampire. Her opinions on literature and her own writing as put down to paper by Michael Thomas Ford are a part of why after so many years I have finally come to like and understand her books. Certainly not as well as an Austen scholar, but on my own level, which is a huge step forward from where I was a few years ago.
Jane Vows Vengeance by Michael Thomas Ford is the conclusion to the Jane Austen vampire series. While I would love love love love love to revisit Jane, Walter, and the other characters, this book does make a logical and satisfying ending.
After stalling for ages to avoid the reckoning with Walter's mother, Jane is whisked away to Europe on a tour with her fiancé. He suggests that they get married over seas rather than stall for even longer.
Jane, who has a history with England, obviously!, is less than excited to take Walter up on this offer. But she loves him and this trip means quite a bit to him. So she agrees, hoping to get married as soon as possible before anything else can go wrong.
But in the way there's a pair of ghosts, the possibility of a cure for vampirism, and the usual lot who wants to end Jane's eternal life.
Although the plot sounds chaotic and a bit far afield from the earlier book seller and book tour type books, it somehow all comes together. It's a bit of a caper but it's a fun caper and it brings closure between Jane's old life and her life as a vampire.
