Description
Marion Shaw se crió en los suburbios, donde lo único que conoció fueron el anhelo y la carencia. A pesar de que lo que más anhela es abandonar la ciudad y todas sus miserias, no tiene ninguna esperanza de escapar hasta el día en que encuentra un anuncio muy peculiar en el periódico, en el cual se busca una criada de sangre. Aunque sabe muy poco sobre el lejano norte, donde los nobles viven a todo lujo y se beben la sangre de aquellos a su servicio, Marion decide tratar de conseguir el puesto. En cuestión de días, se convierte en la nueva criada de sangre de la infame Casa del Hambre. Allí se ve envuelta en un mundo de libertinaje, en cuyo centro está la condesa Lisavet, una mujer amada y temida a partes iguales. Y la condesa no tardará en mostrar un especial interés por Marion. Lisavet es magnética, y Marion está impaciente por satisfacer a su nueva señora. Pero cuando descubre que las antiguas paredes de la Casa del Hambre esconden antiguos secretos, Marion se ve envuelta en un feroz y mortal juego. Marion deberá aprender rápido las reglas de su nuevo hogar, o los pasillos se acabarán convirtiendo en su tumba.
Description
"WANTED: Bloodmaid of exceptional taste. Must have a keen proclivity for life's finer pleasures. Girls of weak will need not apply. A young woman is drawn into the upper echelons of a society where blood is power in this dark and enthralling gothic novel from the author of The Year of the Witching. Marion Shaw has been raised in the slums, where want and deprivation is all she knows. Despite longing to leave the city and its miseries, she has no real hope of escape until the day she spots a peculiar listing in the newspaper seeking a bloodmaid. Though she knows little about the far north-where wealthy nobles live in luxury and drink the blood of those in their service-Marion applies to the position. In a matter of days, she finds herself the newest bloodmaid at the notorious House of Hunger. There, Marion is swept into a world of dark debauchery-and at the center of it all is her. Countess Lisavet, who presides over this hedonistic court, is loved and feared in equal measure. She takes a special interest in Marion. Lisavet is magnetic, and Marion is eager to please her new mistress. But when her fellow bloodmaids begin to go missing in the night, Marion is thrust into a vicious game of cat and mouse. She'll need to learn the rules of her new home-and fast-or its halls will soon become her grave"--,Provided by publisher.
