what If The Enigmatic Hero Of One Of Our Most Timeless Love Stories Was Part Vampire? The Answer Lies In This Haunting Retelling Of The Classic Tale Of Catherine And Heathcliff, Kindred Spirits Bound By A Turbulent—and Now Forbidden—passion…

when A Young Orphan Named Heathcliff Is Brought To Wuthering Heights By The Manor’s Owner, Mr. Earnshaw, Rumors Abound. Yet The Truth Is More Complicated Than Anyone Could Guess. Heathcliff’s Mother Was A Member Of A Gypsy Band That Roamed The English Countryside, Slaying Vampires To Keep Citizens Safe. But His Father Was A Vampire. Now, Even As Heathcliff Gallantly Fights The Monsters Who Roam The Moors In Order To Protect Beautiful, Spirited Catherine Earnshaw, He Is Torn By Compassion For His Victims—and By His Own Dark Thirst.

though Catherine Loves Heathcliff, She Fears The Vampire In Him, And Is Tempted By The Privileged Lifestyle Their Neighbors, The Lintons, Enjoy. Forced To Choose Between Wealthy, Refined Edgar Linton And The Brooding, Increasingly Dangerous Heathcliff, She Makes A Fateful Decision. And Soon Heathcliff, Too, Must Choose—between His Hunger, And The Woman He Will Love For All Eternity…

publishers Weekly

mashups Are Most Appealing When They Combine Novelty, A Tongue-in-cheek Sensibility, And Fondness For The Original Characters. Gray’s Iteration Of Wuthering Heights Lacks All Of These Elements, Illustrating The Danger Of Heedless Tinkering. Brontë’s Original Theme Of The Tension Between Society And The Wild Is Exaggerated To The Point Of Subversion, Leaving Behind A Novel So Gothic That Nearly Every Character Is Hateful. It’s No Stretch To Cast The Dark, Tortured Heathcliff As A Half-vampire Vampire Slayer, Leaving Little Room For Humor In This Ostensible Parody. Gray Faithfully Follows Brontë’s Outline; For Instance, Instead Of Cathy Wasting Away, She Wastes Away But Is Finished Off By Vampires. True Fans Of The Original Will Decry This As Heresy. Others Will Simply Find It Uninteresting. (sept.)
