Are you a fan of Jane Eyre and/or Dracula? Have you ever wondered if Bertha Mason or Lucy Westenra could have had a different fate? If so, Reluctant Immortals is the book for you.
Lucy and Bee (Bertha) are immortal and have survived and are currently living in 1960s Hollywood. They have their daily routines living their undead lives, but when Dracula and Mr. Rochester appear back on the scene, how will Lucy and Bee deal with these terrible men from their past who just won’t leave them alone?
Reluctant Immortals is a hard book to characterize. I don’t want to give too much away as I thought it was a crazy, fun, and unique ride for a book. I loved Lucy and her strength. She was a great narrator for this book. I also loved how the ladies took control of their own narratives. It all perfectly seemed to fit into the psychedelic world of the 1960s and the summer of love in particular. This book had a one-of-a-kind story line and fantastic characters. I enjoyed it.
