The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave

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…

Peer & Press Reviews

The Deathless Girls is exquisitely written, as we have come to expect from Millwood Hargrave, but it is also riveting, intoxicating, and utterly unputdownable.

Louise O’Neill, author of The Surface Breaks

Award-winning children’s writer Kiran Millwood Hargrave makes her young adult debut in The Deathless Girls (Orion).  It’s a prequel, of sorts, to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the untold backstory of his brides, depicted here as sisters who are stolen from their traveller community.  This isn’t a bloodthirsty horror book – indeed, Dracula himself makes only a cameo appearance – but a feminist origin story of sisterhood, fate and survival certain to bewitch teenage readers and beyond.

Observer

A wonderful idea, brilliantly told, about the girls who end up being Dracula’s brides.  I literally could not put it down; in fact, I resorted to stirring porridge with one hand while holding Kiran’s novel in the other.

Francesca Simon, author of the Horrid Henry series
