Reviews for Incarnation
Just couldn't get into this one.
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Gallery Books and Edelweiss.)
Lucy has been made a vampire and abandoned. She has a faint recollection of her maker, but knows nothing else about him. Discovering that the story in 'Dracula', is a fictionalised version of what happened to her, she sets about finding the author and demanding to know where her maker is.
Getting almost nothing from Bram Stoker, other than that her maker was not a foreigner, Lucy sets about exploring London, hoping to find someone who knows where he is. What she doesn't expect is to find more vampires, and a problem that is about to start a war between vampires and humans.
Who is Lucy's maker? Why did he desert her? And what will it take to stop the war that is about to break out?
I found this story quite confusing. The book just didn't grab me right from the beginning, and whether that was part of the reason that I kept getting lost as to what was going on I don't know. There were a lot of different names flying around, and I didn't quite get what was going on with regards Lucy's maker either, so I got pretty lost.
As for the Dracula storyline, I haven't read Dracula so I'm not sure if was missing things because of that? Not sure. There was also something in the storyline about vampires and King Arthur? Haven't read that either though.
Overall; just couldn't get into this one, I found it confusing, and the story just didn't hold my attention.
