What if everything you knew about your life was a lie? Forfeited as retribution for the alleged supernatural crimes of a father she's never met, Mildred "Mills" Millhatten is cast into a strange, vicious world that she didn't know existed and has little hope of understanding. As a Bleeder, one whose lifeblood feeds the Nosferatu, her continued survival hangs ever in the balance. The creatures are keeping her alive because they believe her blood has mystical properties. Mills fears what will happen when they realize they are wrong – or are they? If she hopes to survive and discover who she truly is, she needs an ally. She needs to befriend a bloodthirsty monster. Because she lives in their world now, and if she doesn't do something fast, she's going to die in it too.
