So, I just finished Throne of Glass and loved it! (You can read my review here.) With that book and it’s sassy heroine in mind, as I searched through my Book Wish List, today’s Waiting on Wednesday pick caught my eye. Due to debut on September 18, 2012 from Gallery Books, I give you…
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.
I haven’t read a lot of steampunk, but I am definiely fascinated by the genre and all of the possibilities it offers, both to the author and the reader. Combine steampunk with vampires and their dark, exotic underworld… Oooh, I’m getting chills just thinking about it! I also love the cover for Incarnation. That cover model looks like she won’t take any sass! I am really excited for this one, even moreso because it will be out soon!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
