Gothic, intoxicating, feminist, darkly provoking and deeply romantic – this is the breathtakingly imagined untold story of the brides of Dracula, by bestselling author Kiran Millwood Hargrave in her much-anticipated YA debut. ‘A Chilling and breathlessly paced thriller… Feminism, spirituality, legend and desire are beautifully interwoven in this mesmerising tale of independence and resistance’ – The Daily MailThey say the thirst of blood is like a madness – they must sate it.

Even with their own kin. On the eve of her divining, the day she’ll discover her fate, seventeen-year-old Lil and her twin sister Kizzy are captured and enslaved by the cruel Boyar Valcar, taken far away from their beloved traveller community. Forced to work in the harsh and unwelcoming castle kitchens, Lil is comforted when she meets Mira, a fellow slave who she feels drawn to in a way she doesn’t understand.

But she also learns about the Dragon, a mysterious and terrifying figure of myth and legend who takes girls as gifts. They may not have had their divining day, but the girls will still discover their fate… ‘A feminist origin story of sisterhood, fate and survival certain to bewitch teenage readers and beyond’ – Observer
