Before vampires sparkled or Buffy met Angel, they had the original (deeply problematic) age gap romance fueled by the desire of one to consume the other. Before Ann Rice or Richard Matheson OR EVEN BRAM STOKER, there was Sheridan Le Fanu’s… Carmilla.

Laura lives a secluded existence in a castle with her father, right in the heart of the Styrian wilderness. She wants for nothing—except, perhaps, for the companionship of a girl her own age. When a seemingly chance encounter brings her into contact with Carmilla, a beautiful young countess as mysterious as she is beguiling, Laura believes her prayers have been answered… never guessing the terrifying nightmare about to unfold within her own household.
While Carmilla is not who, or what, she seems, Laura falls deeper under her new friend’s spell, and her father fights to save her from the unnatural sickness sweeping the countryside.
