This was the very first vampire thriller, eventually becoming inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, as well classics by Robert Louis Stevenson. In this tale of blood and terror, pure innocence becomes the target of age-old evil. Virtuous Laura has grown up in a solitary castle and longs for a close friend. Her wish seems granted with the arrival of a beautiful and mysterious stranger named Carmilla. A friendship develops between them, but the brooding mood and sexual overtones mar Laura’s happiness. Will she escape with her life and spirit?

Megan Follows’ brilliant reading perfectly evokes the dramatic atmosphere of this gothic Victorian tale.

    " I read this book for one of my college courses. Yep, the college course itself was about vampires, which made it a fun class. It is one of the best feminist gothic novels I have ever read. Well, it is not exactly feminist, but it does speak grand volumes of how people perceive women during that period in history. How people perceived Carmilla is a perfect example of how societies generally perceived women who broke the society's rules. "
