Waterstones Says

The Young Adult debut from Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-winning Kiran Millwood Hargrave is a sensuous, sinister chiller that reimagines the story of Dracula from the point of view of his enslaved brides. A compelling tale of love and companionship set amongst the stygian murk of Transylvania, The Deathless Girls is a scintillating work of gothic fiction.

Longlisted for the The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2021

Shortlisted for the YA Book Prize 2020

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...
