Emma Cornwall's Incarnation is a seamless blending of Victorian sensibility, steampunk ingenuity, and creatures of lore and legend.
Young Lucy Weston is a newly turned vampire on the hunt for so much more than her next meal.
She is a girl bent on discovering the whereabouts of the elegant stranger that is responsible for her transformation; and by extension the loss of her former life.

Lucy is a wonderful character, young but fully aware of what she must do and more than willing to embrace both the pleasure and the pain of her new status as vampire.
Though it is quite clear that Lucy loves her family, it is quite clear that she is a forward thinker and not one to shrink from the obstacles that being both a woman and vampire in Victorian England present.
While it is true that Lucy is clearly the star of this story, she is not always its focal point.
Throughout the course of this tale, readers will be introduced to all manner of person and creature.
The list includes: trolls, weres, Protectors, and more...

Readers will love the fact that this novel flows quickly from scene to scene; never allowing the story to stick in one place or another.
So too, the characters work like perfect puzzle pieces, locking together flawlessly to present a beautifully depicted tableau of mystery, love, promises, lies, betrayal, and blood lust.

Can Lucy find all she seeks before time runs out for her, her maker,
the world?

For the answer to this question and the
start of an adventure with brains
and bite...
