Society girls from New York City circa 1890, Dacia and Lou never desired to know more about their lineage, instead preferring to gossip about the mysterious Romanian family that they barely knew. But upon turning seventeen, the girls must return to their homeland to meet their relatives, find proper husbands, and—most terrifyingly—learn the deep family secrets of The Claw, The Wing, and The Smoke. The Florescus, after all, are shape-shifters, and it is time for Dacia and Lou to fulfill the prophecy that demands their acceptance of this fate . . . or fight against this cruel inheritance with all their might.

With a gorgeous Romanian setting, stunning Parisian gowns, and dark brooding young men, readers will be swept up by this epic adventure of two girls in a battle for their lives.

First sentence: “Dacia picked up her book and put it down again.”

Remember when I wrote a letter expressing my glee of Silver in the Blood? Oh how I want to slap past-Cee in the face.

Silver in the Blood has everything I’m interested in—society girls, family secrets, a wicked secret society (of sorts), and shape shifters—but somewhere along the way, it took a wrong turn in the road. Set in the late 1800s, the book follows two cousins from affluent families, Dacia and Lou, as they are forced to visit their mother’s home country, where they get to know their Romanian roots and discover a shocking family secret of The Claw, The Wing, and The Smoke that changes their entire world. The two girls try to navigate the new world they’re thrust into, even if it kills them.
