    Before Dracula, before Nosferatu, there was . . . CARMILLA.

    At the height of the Lunar New Year, an idealistic social worker turns detective when she discovers young, homeless LGBTQ+ women are being murdered and no one, especially the police, seems to care. A series of clues points her to Carmilla's, a mysterious nightclub in the heart of her neighborhood, Chinatown. There she falls for the next likely target, landing her at the center of a real-life horror story--and face-to-face with illusions about herself, her life, and her hidden past.

    Inspired by the gothic novel that started a genre, this queer vampire murder mystery is a mesmerizing tale of identity, obsession and fateful family secrets by fan-favorite writer Amy Chu (Red Sonja, Netflix's DOTA: Dragon's Blood and fine-line illustrator Soo Lee (Ash and Thorn).

    "A sophisticated and modern reimagination of one of the great classics of the horror genre, Chu and Lee have crafted a Vampire story you do not want to miss." - James Tynion IV (Something Is Killing The Children, The Department of Truth)"Part of the challenge when writing about the Asian-American experience is attempting to define something that feels so amorphous. Chu and Lee ingeniously meld one of Western horror's oldest icons with the touchstones of the East." - Pornsak Pichetshote (The Good Asian, Infidel)

    "Amy Chu and Soo Lee have cut a perfect gem of a story from the collective unconscious, with an archetypal monster thats at once both deeply mysterious and itchingly familiarlike anything that truly haunts us." - Lilah Sturges (House of Mystery, The Science of Ghosts)
