Catherine Berg has always been a strong person, even since she was a young child. The eldest daughter of the town’s blacksmith, she is not thrilled at all about her villages Century Bride tradition. Competing against other girls for the attentions of the Count seems a disgusting tradition to her.
Despite the town’s tempestuous past, despite the danger that the powerful Count keeps at bay, Catherine does not believe in the nursery rhyme taught to every inhabitant of the town since birth.
“Four our own safety,
So we do not need to hide,
Every century we give tribute,
To Count August we give a bride.”
A year before she and the other women of the town are to be offered up like sacrifices to the Count, she begins searching for a way to oust the archaic ritual. But when Count August saves Catherine and the town from the ravages of a band of marauding vampires, Catherine begins to finally understand the meaning behind the ritual.
Will Catherine sacrifice everything to become the new Century Bride?
