[Review] - Incarnation by Emma Cornwall

Title: Incarnation
Author: Emma Cornwal
Genre: Historical Paranormal Romance/Steampunk
Release Date: September 18, 2012

I received this book from Simon & Schuster, in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:  In the steampunk world of Victorian London, a beautiful vampire seeks out the author of Dracula–to set the record straight . . . 

If one is to believe Bram Stoker’s legendary vampire tale, Lucy Weston is Dracula’s most wanton creation, a sexual creature of the night who preys on innocent boys.

But the real-life Lucy is nothing like her fictional counterpart—and she demands to know why the Victorian author deliberately lied. With Stoker’s reluctant help, she’s determined to track down the very fiend who transformed her—from the sensual underworld where humans vie to become vampires, to a hidden cell beneath a temple to madness, and finally into the glittering Crystal Palace where death reigns supreme.

Haunted by fragmentary memories of her lost life and love, Lucy must battle her thirst for blood as she struggles to stop a catastrophic war that will doom vampires and humans alike. Ultimately, she must make a choice that illuminates for her—and for us—what it means to be human.

Thoughts: On waking from the grave Lucy Weston returns to her empty family home.  She comes across the manuscript to Bram Stoker's Dracula. She is appalled at the lies inside the pages. Lucy soon sets out to find this Bram Stoker to set the record straight and hopefully some answers to what she has become.

An exciting story!  It definitely lives up to the beautiful (art by Tony Mauro) cover. I love this version of Lucy Weston. She is less flippant than the one in Dracula. Strong, sexy and a survivor.  Incarnation is an fun and interesting story, different and with an wide cast of characters.  Being a fan of Dracula, I was very taken with the idea of Lucy confronting Bram Stoker. I think other lovers of Dracula will be intrigued by this tale.

Score: 4 Stars
