In a single night, Mariette Rossard lost everything—her mother, her childhood, and her mortal life. When the opportunity arises for a fresh start in the New World, she leaves France without a backward glance. Soon strange tales, involving other Casket Girl brides, follow her into the wilds of colonial Louisiana. Mindful of a woman’s precarious reputation—and the speed of gossip—she heeds every whisper involving blood-thirsty vampires. All the rumors pale in comparison to a neighbor’s accusation—that she practices witchcraft. Mariette won’t lose all she holds dear a second time.

“The great historical sweep of the entire book, and the account of Siddrah’s quest for the talismanic Archon, are richly imagined and lavishly depicted.There is a classical historian’s tone to this fantasy epic, with echoes of Tolkien and other fantasy greats. The singular construction of an imaginary world, culture and even a literary heritage is impressive…If George R.R. Martin and Herodotus held a writing seminar, this dense account of an imaginary land might be the result.” Publishers Weekly, BookLife Prize 2019 [Critic’s Report]
It’s darkest before the dawn, but is it darker than a vampire’s soul?
For 400 Years Saito Izumi Has Struggled with What It Means to be Kyuuketsuki–A Japanese Vampire!
In Feudal Japan, during an attack on Kumamoto Castle from a horde of swarming y?kai— mythical creatures born from the darkest depths of Japanese folklore—the samurai Saito Izumi will be forever changed. By morning’s dawn, Saito will be kyuuketsuki, a Japanese vampire!
Join Saito in Feudal Japan as she confronts an army of thunder-beasts, ogre-like oni, and the seductive spider-whore jor?gumo. Creatures as diverse as they are deadly. Then travel with the former samurai as she battles 18th Century Spanish soldiers and vampires along the Spanish Main. Stand with her as she wages war against shape-shifting Mexican nagual, fighting alongside the likes of Davy Crockett, William Travis, and James Bowie to defend the Alamo.
In this heart-wrenching collection of original stories are four terrifying tales from Saito Izumi’s centuries of existing—she doesn’t consider it living—that explore her dangerous and deep personal journey to understand the blackest darkness of an inhuman soul, to discover what it means to live and not simply survive, and most important of all, to learn if a vampire can triumph over evil and truly love again.
