Born under the omen of a falling star, Erzebet Bizecka is a child of prophecy. The only heir of a powerful Hungarian count, she was predicted to die young or to live forever. Determined to survive despite the grim prophecy, Erzebet becomes obsessed with preserving her youth and beauty. Not even her closest friend, Marianna, can understand her crippling fear of growing older. Only the beautiful stranger, Sinestra, understands Erzebet's mania. He assures her that there are ways to determine her own destiny, pulling her into a dark world of blood rituals and promising eternal youth in return. Luring her victims to her tower room, Erzebet is determined to thwart God's plan for her life and create her own. How far will she be willing to go to protect herself?

Strange Horizons

(p.78) These distinctly feminine musings, as common now as they were then, give us glimmerings of Erzebet's madness early on, yet Libby maintains a deliberately slow, at times infuriating, pace, fleshing out the relationship between Erzebet and Marianna, a peasant girl whom Erzebet befriends.
