The Deathless Girls

They are the brides of Dracula. Their touch is death and terror. But they have their story too… On the eve of her divining, the day she’ll discover her fate, seventeen-year-old Lil is captured with her twin sister Kizzy. Enslaved by the cruel Boyar Valcar in his remote and forbidding castle, the sisters are forced to slave away in the gloomy kitchens. For Lil, crumbs of comfort arrive in the shape of Mira, a fellow slave. But there’s fear, too, in the dark rumours of the Dragon: a sinister figure of legend who takes girls as gifts. People say the thirst of blood is like a madness. It must be sated – even with one’s own kin. The girls may not have had their divining day, but they will soon discover their fate…
