Fantastical Austen: Pemberley: Mr. Darcy’s Dragon Ch 1 — 52 Comments

  1. So excited for this story!!!!!! Can’t wait to read more! Are you going to be posting it here as it goes (like with Mistaking Her Character and The Trouble to Check Her) or is this going to be released soon since you appear to already have cover art (which looks awesome by the way). Thanks for sharing with us!!

  2. This is a delight: dragons, Darcy, the Bennets, and I suspect icky Wicky has stolen the dragon egg. I really hope he gets fried to a crisp by the dragon before he causes the usual problems. I am dying to read more of this. After being around actual dragons, Lizzy should find Lady Catherine even easier to handle. I expect her to say that if Anne could see dragons, she would be a true proficient! Let us know when this one hits Amazon, because we will all be waiting for it.

    • I will confess, she won’t meet Lady Catherine (a true Dragon Lady in this series) until the second book. It’s pushing 300 pages at the moment, so this will be a series. Thanks, Mari!

  3. I have to admit, I thought this would be silly but the excerpt is fun and makes me want to read more. This is one of the reasons I love this blog.
    Thank you!

  4. This was great! Usually I’m wary of combining Austen with other genres, but you seem to be doing it really well. Looking forward to reading more of it!

  5. I adore this story and can’t wait for more!! I’m definitely going to purchase this book the second it comes out!! 😀

    Thank you, Maria Grace!! This series looks *amazing*!!

    Susanne 🙂

  6. Great! I don’t usually read fantasies or science fiction, but Dragons are an exception. I got my start with Ann McCaffery and the dragons of Pern and am looking forward to your version.

  7. Thank you Maria!
    I am also a fan of Anne McCaffery’s dragons and of Pride and Prejudice!
    I am loving this story and I can’t wait for more!

  8. I’m another fan of the Dragonriders of Pern series of books, as well as (of course!) Pride and Prejudice. This is a great start. You said that this will be a series…Will each book be complete in itself, or will they end with cliffhangers?

  9. I loved this excerpt and am on pins and needles waiting for the entire book.I especially want to see how Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam interact.

  10. I am behind in reading e-mails so just found Chapter two and had to backtrack. This is charming…and so appropriate for the month. So much to learn about the various classes/levels of dragons and their mates, etc. Thank you for another good read.

  11. I’ve never read anything pertaining to dragons before, but this is fun! 🙂 Is there a lot of established dragon lore out there or is this pretty much all your own world-building?

    • That part of the fun and the challenge with this story. There are dragon myth in just about every culture, and heaps of dragons (including the Lambton Wyrm) in Britain. I’m trying to use those as much as possible, but not sticking entirely to them as I build this world. Thanks, Monica.

  12. Love this story. Dragons are such fantastical creatures. Would the Lambton Wrym be our wonderful Mr. Darcy? That would make the thief wicked Wickham I would guess. I hope this will be another of your published books.
