When Dr. Julian Hemmings agrees to apply the controversial techniques of his mentor Sigmund Freud to the deeply troubled Lucy Westenra, he begins a descent into a world of gothic horror that prompts his own self-analysis and a confrontation with long-suppressed passions that have affected his life since adolescence.

Set in London during the fall of 1897, In Mind of the Vampire draws context from Bram Stoker’s Dracula and features two of the main characters—Lucy Westenra and Mina Murray. But this novel is not a mere retelling of Stoker’s tale. Carefully researched and with the full flavor of late Victorian London, In Mind of the Vampire is a haunting tale of mystery, beauty, horror, and agonizing self-realization. Here one is transported to a beguiling and enthralling world where intellectual sophistication clashes with primal instincts and needs—leading to consequences that testify to the enduring and unalterable power of the imagination.

Tone is true to the story and its period. A bit long for the story it needs to tell.

Great idea, but oh God, the narrator can't stop analyzing every single thing. In depth. Everything. I skipped so many pages that I finally gave up and skipped to the end. Hard pass this one unless you are out of Ambien.

Don't expect a prequel to Dracula as this is not the case, even though there are some same characters. This is a thematic novel about madness and the mind, the concept of immortality in its many forms, and what exactly controls us as humans, particularly men.

I enjoyed the book until the end. But the ending itself let me down. I truly expected something. ...more.
