Fledgling 'doesn't just resurrect the pale trappings of vampire lore, it completely transforms them in a startlingly original story about race, family and free will' (The Washington Post).

A young girl wakes up in the wilderness with extensive injuries and no memories. As she recovers, the realisation that she has unnatural needs and abilities leads to a shocking discovery: she is Shori, a 53-year-old vampire.

To have a future, she must unravel her past ... because the people that nearly killed her haven't given up.
