If you’re a fan of the series interested in reading the source material for the series, or are a fan of vampire fiction who’s heard of the novella but never read it, then have we got a book for you! Carmillais StarWarp Concepts’ most popular title in our Illustrated Classics line, and our edition features exclusive illustrations by Eliseu Gouveia, artist of The Saga of Pandora Zwieback Annual #1, Lorelei: Sects and the City, and Vengeance of the Mummy. Here’s the synopsis:
Before Edward and Bella, before Lestat and Louis, even before Dracula and Mina, there was the tale of Carmilla and Laura.
Living with her widowed father in a dreary old castle in the woods of Styria, Laura has longed to have a friend with whom she can confide; a friend to bring some excitement to her pastoral lifestyle. And then Carmilla enters her life.
Left by her mother in the care of Laura’s father, Carmilla is young, beautiful, playful—everything Laura had hoped to find in a companion. In fact, the lonely girl is so thrilled to have a new friend that she is willing to overlook the dark-haired beauty’s strange actions…which include a disturbing, growing obsession for her lovely hostess.
Carmilla, it seems, desires more than just friendship from Laura….
“The way Le Fanu blends together desire and predation is spellbinding. A true Gothic story, Carmilla is great fun.”—Gothic Beauty Magazine

“Like many vampire romances, Carmilla and Laura’s love is doomed and unhealthy, but glorious.”—io9
