"If you want to read a series about vampires that will keep you giggling while you read, then you have got to check out this series." --Sookie Stackhouse Books
“It’s impossible not to love Ford’s sharp-witted, sharp-fanged Jane Austen.”—Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
"Ford’s final book in the trilogy is nicely connected with characters and ideas to the previous books, but it can also be read as a stand-alone...The key elements of a charmingly reluctant vampire, supportive friends, and flashes of brilliance offset by poor undead life-skills remain in full force."--Library Journal
"This fun and frothy series will appeal to fans of Jasper Fforde’s literary mashups (The Eyre Affair, 2002) as well as Austen fans who like a dose of vampires (Steven Hockensmith's Dawn of the Dreadfuls, 2010)." --Booklist
"This fang-in-cheek book with its quirky sense of humor and enjoyable characters is a pleasing addition to the paranormal world. Ford's writing is a real treat." --Parkersburg News & Sentinel
"[A] fun, humorous, and enjoyable trilogy . . .Trust me when I say how fun these books are." --Reads From the Field

Wedding plans are in full swing even though Jane's fiancé Walter is unaware of his future bride's famous past or her present condition. His darling *cough* mother, Miriam the vampire hunter, is hampering the planning with her upbeat *cough* attitude and looming ultimatum that Jane must become pregnant within a year or she will stake her. Walter's suggestion that they combine the wedding with a European tour offered by his architectural preservation association it quickly adopted finding an unlikely group of Jane and Walter's friends and family jumping the pond to witness the nuptials in London and tour castles and other feigned sites of Europe together. Along the way they meet zombies, vampires, ghosts, forgotten husbands, and murdered fellow travelers, while Jane searches for the great vampire urban legend, Crispin's Needle, capable of unmaking a vampire and restoring their human soul.

Jane Vows Vengeance continues the story of our beloved vampire, Jane Austen, from the previous books, Jane Bites Back and Jane Goes Batty by Ford. Our protagonist is now engaged to Walter, still unbeknownst of her undead condition, and is struggling with wedding plans and debating revealing her secret. The engagement timeline is unexpectedly moved up with the advent of an architectural tour, which provides an opportunity to combine the wedding and the honeymoon in Europe. From there, the action is non-stop as we find out the conclusion of Jane's and Walter's relationship.
Ford once again pens a well-written, fast-paced book with hilarious dialogue and twisty sub-plots. The snarkiness and quick wit of Jane, successful in the first two books, continues to shine as she contends with her conscience, her vampire hunter mother-in-law (Miriam), the discovery of the legend of an instrument that can return the soul to a vampire, and a dead tour-mate. There was never a dull moment with all the twists and turns I encountered - I was either chuckling or eagerly anticipating the next passage. I especially loved the scene where Jane attempts to solve the mystery of the murderer's identity while holding an Agathie Christie-type reveal meeting with all the characters - priceless! In addition, I enjoyed the shocking development with Miriam, which integrated well with the overall story.
Overall, Jane Vows Vengeance was a real page-turner (I finished this in one sitting) and a satisfying end to the trilogy, with enough of an open question for even a fourth book if Ford chose to write one. I would highly recommend the entire series to fans of classic literature (especially Jane Austen, of course) of the paranormal variation.
This is part of a series and this is book 3 but it stands on its own so you don't need to read the other books in advance. But based on how good this book is I am going to get the other two in the series which are "Jane Bites Back" and "Jane Goes Batty". The titles tell me they will be just as entertaining as this one was.
The author Michael Thomas Ford just has a way to get Jane in these incredible situations where her gallows humour comes out. This is entirely to our benefit as the reader and sometime to Jane's advantage.
Let's start with the upcoming wedding. Yes Jane has decided to tie the knot after 200 years. I guess she is super cautious/picky about relationships or she finally found the one. Little did Jane know that Miriam her soon to be mother in law in fact hunts vampires. OUCH !!
There is peace between them but only because Jane is under a one year timeframe to produce a child. Jane is not sure if that can even happen but it did get Miriam out of her face for a year which is fast approaching.
Jane's BFF Lucy is right into the wedding planning wiping out magazine stands all over town of anything related to weddings and brides. It's enough to make a vampire want to kill someone. Jane calm down !
Walter her bitter, oops better half comes up with a brilliant plan to go house shopping in Europe. That way they can get married and have a honeymoon while looking at houses.Read more ›
