Why did I love this book?
Although it’s a vampire classic, a surprising number of people don’t know about Carmilla. It’s a little older than Dracula and its sapphic themes are as they are.
What’s fun about it though, is the setting and small number of characters. Personally, I had no idea what schloss was, but it’s a castle, in this case a lonely one. Poor sheltered Laura describes her life, and the few people she knows, in careful detail, before it’s all turned upside down by their pretty new guest.
