Lucy Weston wins character of the month. I love her charm, boldness, and most of all her audacity. She takes the cake. I wanted to be her best friend. Her adventure could spread across a series and I am almost wondering if we may see more of this whimsical world! I would have liked to have seen more action from her character. I felt that her internal conflict was not always executed externally in the best way for readers to understand. ( I hope that makes sense; my inner English major is starting to surface) I would have liked to see more of the seductress that we all know the Lucy Weston to be in Dracula. Her character could have pulled that off so well!
I have already mentioned that the steampunk aspect of this was written well. I also believe that the action was paced especially well. I am a reader that is easily lost in the flow of action and if you, as an author, do not keep me entertained you will quickly lose me. Here I believe that some of the best scenes were action. Cornwall has a knack for writing them and they were all very strong. I would definitely trade the action for romance, however. I did not like that there was just not a lot of it.Read more ›
Lucy is in her twenties when she's changed into a vampire but unlike other vampires she's hasn't lost her human side, creating a half-ling. She struggles with drinking human blood because her human side sees it as wrong, while her vampire side craves it. Lucy has a lot to deal with after being turned into a vampire at least she's not doing it alone; she's befriended a human who is a descendant from a long line of hunters.
I found the story exciting it pulled me in right from the start keeping me interested all along the way. I had to stay up super late to finish because I just had to know how it was going to end. I enjoyed all the twists, and turns throughout the book, a lot of unexpected delights. I found the characters well written, you just have to love Lucy she's a strong character, who does what she has to get by. I found the story flows smoothly along in perfect harmony so that you don't feel overwhelmed. I haven't read Dracula yet but I kind of wish that I had because I feel it would have added to the experience that was already enjoyable. The Steampunk aspect was very minimal but I like the different aspects it provided to the story.
My first thoughts when I received this book? Gorgeous cover with sassy cover model, great Victorian setting, with steampunk elements. What we find between the pages is more of a paranormal, historical with a smart heroine set in the Victorian era of the streets of London. Rich with details of this time period, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
The Prologue, will have you right from the start, as we find our heroine, Lucy, trapped underground in a coffin, with a stake through her chest, digging, and clawing her way out of her trap, as she is re-awakened. Confused about what has happened to her she makes her way out with an unknown hunger, and determination to find out what has become of her and her family, with only bits of pieces of her memory haunting her. She makes her way to her home, but it's not the home she remembers from her past, although memories still remain, it is deserted and a lonely place that unveils secrets about what has now become of her.
Once again, our heroine sets off to find the link to what and why she is now a deadly, immortal. The streets of London open her mind to a different world as she learns about her "new" life, and what will become of her and all of society and what piece of the puzzle she plays within this mystery.
With a hauntingly calling within her dreams, we learn of her maker and what has become of him, and his unfortunate event has Lucy needing to rescue him. With the help of the mysterious, Marco di Orsini. A talented human known as a Protector who defends humans and humanity against vampires and other paranormal beings that stalk the night.Read more ›

Incarnation was interesting. Although not as interesting as the blurb promises. Lucy wakes up to find herself buried alive and with a wooden stake protruding from her chest. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Angie
