9781492637424: The Girl from Rawblood: A Novel

Winner of BEST HORROR NOVEL (August Derleth Award) at British Fantasy Awards 2016

For generations the Villarcas have died mysteriously, and young. Now Iris and her father will finally understand why. . .

At the turn of England's century, as the wind whistles in the lonely halls of Rawblood, young Iris Villarca is the last of her family's line. They are haunted, through the generations, by "her," a curse passed down through ancient blood that marks each Villarca for certain heartbreak, and death.

Iris forsakes her promise to her father, to remain alone, safe from the world. She dares to fall in love, and the consequences of her choice are immediate and terrifying. As the world falls apart around her, she must take a final journey back to Rawblood where it all began and where it must all end...

From the sun dappled hills of Italy to the biting chill of Victorian dissection halls, The Girl from Rawblood is a lyrical and haunting historical novel of darkness, love, and the ghosts of the past.

Praise for The Girl from Rawblood:

"A hauntingly brilliant virtuoso performance." - Emma Healey, author of Elizabeth is Missing

"A gothic tale of love and madness, this atmospheric and chilling story drew me in from the first page, and kept me up at night, until I reached the last." - Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days

"A story to satisfy the most gothic of hearts. I was hooked on the very first page and The Girl from Rawblood never let me go. Sentence by sentence, Catriona Ward made herself one of my very favorite writers." - Kelly Link, award-winning author and Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Get in Trouble

"Brilliant – The Girl From Rawblood is the old-school gothic novel I have been waiting for. While it delivers everything I want from a 'haunted house/family curse' story, it is still stunningly original. I have never read anything like it and that's saying something." - Mike Mignola, creator of the Hellboy comic book series

"The Girl from Rawblood weaves a spell that both terrifies and mesmerizes. As each layer of mystery is peeled away, more haunting truth is revealed. The book leaves the reader breathless in its gothic tale of fear, family, blood, and love." - Simone St. James, award-winning author of The Haunting of Maddy Clare

"'Beautifully written, in equal parts both terrifying and heart-breaking, The Girl from Rawblood is a dazzlingly brilliant Gothic masterpiece." - Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes

"A lush, macabre, chillingly good tale. From the modern horrors of man – medical experiments, war – to the ancient power of the natural world, The Girl from Rawblood is not only a ghost story of the highest order, but a sublime meditation on the things that hold us captive: fidelity, fear, memory, love." - Leslie Parry, author of The Church of Marvels

About the Author:

Catriona Ward was born in Washington DC and grew up in the US, Kenya, Madagascar, Yemen and Morocco. She studied English at St Edmund Hall, Oxford followed by the UEA Masters in Creative Writing. After living in New York for 4 years where she trained as an actor, she now works for a human rights foundation and lives in London.

Review:

"...superb debut....Wade perfectly balances sensory richness with the chills of the uncanny." - Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"Ward's layered and skillfully crafted novel weaves elements of classic gothic and horror into a remarkable story populated by unforgettable characters, palpable atmosphere, and rich lyricism. Imagine the darkest and goriest undertones of Edgar Allan Poe, the Brontës, Charles Dickens, and Shirley Jackson, and you'll have an idea of what Ward offers here." - Library Journal

"From Victorian ghost story to anti-war polemic and back again: I raged, wept and hid under the bed covers. As full of science as it is the supernatural, this is a hauntingly brilliant virtuoso performance." - Emma Healey, best selling author of Elizabeth is Missing

"Gloriously dark and claustrophobic, The Girl from Rawblood is a haunting gothic novel of intelligence and complexity. It has many echoes of the classics but is entirely its own book." - Essie Fox, author of The Somnambulist

"With a ghostly face at the window, inexplicable events and a sense of menace hanging over every page, this is one chilling gothic novel." - Daily Mail

"A ghostly, achingly sad, yet excruciatingly beautiful debut . . .Catriona Ward has created a moving, original tale of love and destruction, one that is truly enthralling and memorable." - LoveReading

"A gripping and gruesome story of death, war, mental health, scientific experimentation, opium addiction and ill-fated, fateful love. Chillingly good." - Express

"If you want to read a gripping ghost story and be kept awake all night . . . you must read The Girl From Rawblood" - Bianca Jagger

"The Girl from Rawblood is a fiercely original work of horror fiction that draws from its antecedents not in the manner of a vampire sucking blood, but of a thirsty artisan raising water from a well . . . a damn fine story, well paced and genuinely disturbing and achingly sad. This is one of those novels that leaves you loath to read anything else for a while, the world it evokes is so complete and so richly imagined. The Girl from Rawblood delivers all the mystery and menace that one might hope for in a classic ghost story. Moreover, it does not shrink from the ineffable. Fans of supernatural horror need not be disappointed: in The Girl from Rawblood, the ghosts are real." - Strange Horizons

"The Girl from Rawblood is a cleverly interwoven Gothic tale of love and madness. Ward's atmospheric writing and chilling story drew me in from the first page, and kept me up at night, right through to the disturbing and tragic ending." - Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days

It will haunt your dreams." - Miranda Seymour, author of Thrumpton Hall"'Beautifully written Gothic. It is rare to find such sumptuous prose." - A.K. Benedict, author of The Beauty of Murder and Jonathan Dark, or the Evidence of Ghosts"A powerful contribution to the British literature of the fantastic. It's an epic family saga incorporating a great Gothic house, built upon a lyrically rendered regional landscape, from which the numinous rises as if it is a natural function of the setting. There's a touch of Ted Hughes here, Emily Bronte and M.R James in this eerie and by turns moving story that spans generations. It filled my head for several evenings, and will linger there too . . . A definite book of the year for me." - Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual"Gloriously dark and claustrophobic, The Girl From Rawblood is a haunting gothic novel of intelligence and complexity. It has many echoes of the classics but is entirely its own book." - Essie Fox, author of The Somnambulist. Nº de ref. de la librería 5639888
