Carmilla originally published as a novella in 1872 is the very first vampire thriller- a major influence on Bram Stoker's Dracula. Often compared to the works of Poe, the tale of Carmilla has inspired horror writers for more than a century. In this updated version Ms. Rose has taken the original short work and seamlessly blended a dark romance that approaches the heights of gothic literature.
