A princess with a craving for blood, a stranger who knows her secret, and a land where nothing is as it seemsWhen her sister becomes betrothed to a prince in a northern nation, Zeraphina's only consolations are that her loyal animal companions are by her side—and that her burning hunger to travel north is finally being sated. Already her black hair and pale eyes mark her as being different, but now Zeraphina must be even more careful to keep her secret safe. Craving blood is not considered normal behavior for anyone, let alone a princess. So when the king's advisor, Rodden, seems to know more about her condition than she does, Zeraphina is determined to find out more. Zeraphina must be willing to sacrifice everything if she's to uncover the truth—but what if the truth is beyond her worst nightmares?
