Lucy Weston tracks down the novelist Bram Stoker in her search to reveal the dark force who made her a vampire-and regain her humanity in the process.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 more

Our customer reviews

(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. 5 out of more
