  1. OMIGOSH!!! I cannot believe it! I rarely win anything and I thought “what the heck. I’ll enter the giveaway anyway.” I had total cover lust from first sight of this book. It lured me in and I read the synopsis and then I was hooked even more. I’m so glad I took that chance. I AM SO EXCITED! ECSTATIC!!!! I have been talking to everyone about this book and I haven’t even read it yet. WOOHOO!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on it, devour it, and review it. I even got Bram Stoker’s Dracula to brush up on some of the backstory and whatnot. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

  2. I finished reading it and here is my review:

    I had coverlust at first sight. Striking. It drew me in to read the synopsis. Then I was really hooked. I decided to enter a giveaway and actually won a copy of it. Surprisingly, I was satisfied with how unusual it was. It is about Lucy, who had a small role in the novel “Dracula”, seeking out the author, Bram Stoker, to demand answers as to why he lied about her and how to find her creator. I was stunned finding out that Dracula was NOT the vampire who transformed her. What a clever twist. I won’t spoil who the culprit actually was but they abandoned her to learn for herself what she has become. You follow Lucy on her hunt. It is written so smoothly that it is easy to feel like you are experiencing it with her. She wakes up in a wooden box, having been staked and buried. I KNOW!!! This was not your typical vampire tale so don’t idly dismiss it. I thought it was a stroke of genius when Stoker was offered a chance to gain “personal experience” to improve his next novel. The concept is brilliant. The idea is that Stoker’s “Dracula” was a deliberate cover-up to conceal the truth about the existence of vampires to prevent mass panic. As the public is gullible, it worked beautifully. That alone was intriguing, yet after reading it I can tell you it is so much more. It a melting pot of so many cool elements: steampunk Victorian London, vampires, werewolves, Bram Stoker, and the Legend of King Arthur. WHAT?! I was the most shocked when it was revealed that King Arthur was entwined with this unique story. Very engaging.
