Blurb from Goodreads:

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.

They 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...

Why I'm Anticipating This Book:

A YA retelling of the brides of Dracula? Yes, please!
And how beautiful is that cover?!


  1. I featured this one awhile ago and am so glad it's getting closer and closer!

  2. So many great sounding books are being shared today! This is another one I now must add to my wish list. The cover is gorgeous. Dracula is one of my favorite classics. I hope you enjoy it when you read it! Have a great weekend!

  3. I love that this is a retelling of Dracula and I love the cover too. Great pick!
