JANE SLAYRE by Charlotte Brontë and Sherri Browning Erwin (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
"Reader, I buried him..."
This clever and funny literary mash-up rewrites Charlotte Brontë’s "Jane Eyre" so that Jane is a vampire slayer and Rochester’s wife is a werewolf. After learning of her parents’ history as slayers, Jane must follow her true calling while trying to remain true to her heart.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator Rosalyn Landor, renowned for her many performances on screen and on stage. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

Raised by vampyres, Jane grows to resent the lifestyle. No sunlight and a diet of bloody red meat is no way for a mortal girl to live. But when the ghost of her uncle visits her and imparts her parents' slayer history, she strikes out on her own to learn the slayer ways. After trying her luck at a school full of zombies, Jane meets and falls in love with Mr. Rochester, but evil strikes in the form of Mr. Rochester's first wife, a violent werewolf he keeps locked in the attic. Jane tries to start a new life but finds herself yearning to reunite with Mr. Rochester. Jane must find her true calling while remaining true to her heart.
