Mini Review: HeartStone

A Pride and Prejudice Retelling with Dragons

How it's Different:
Jane and Lizzie's sister dies before the books open
Merybourne Manor
Charlotte's happiness with her husband
The battle at the end

The Feel of the Book is the Same:
It follows a similar plot line (obviously details have been changed to fit the dragon)
Lydia/Wickham story is a bit different - which I liked
The tension between Aliza and Alastair is spot on

I really enjoyed this retelling! 
I wouldn't mind other Austen novels set in this world too!
