About Scream Queers

Scream Queers is a monthly horror book club at Under the Umbrella on the third Saturday at 1 p.m. Due to the graphic nature of some of the books read by the group, it is an 18+ book club but it otherwise open to all.

Please consider bringing a contribution (sliding scale $1-5) for the meeting room reservation at Under the Umbrella. If $1 a month is a barrier for you, you are still welcome to attend!

COVID Precautions: It is a requirement for both the bookstore and the book club to wear a mask.

About the Book

This is my last love letter to you, though some would call it a confession. . . A deliciously dark retelling of Dracula, A Dowry of Blood is a sensual tale of obsession, desire, and the lengths to which we'll go to protect the ones we love. Saved from the brink of death by a mysterious stranger, Constanta is transformed from a medieval peasant into a bride fit for an undying king. But when Dracula draws a cunning aristocrat and a starving artist into his web of passion and deceit, Constanta realizes that her beloved is capable of terrible things.

Finding comfort in the arms of her rival consorts, she begins to unravel their husband's dark secrets. With the lives of everyone she loves on the line, Constanta will have to choose between her own freedom and her love for her husband. But bonds forged by blood can only be broken by death.
