Darker Sides: a Blood Countess Story is a novel written by Piper McManamon and published by Sappho Creations


In 2014, the Blood Countess met her end on her farm outside of East St. Louis, Illinois. Her accomplices, however, had successfully evaded the law. Two years later, something sinister has come to a rural Wisconsin community.

Nova is a logged-in, nonbinary teenager with an interest in serial killers. Sam is a drug dealing gearhead preparing to graduate. Meredith is a sheltered, redhead nerd with a tragic backstory. Taka is an edgy white boy with an interest in wolves and a need to seem cool. Can they save those they love? More importantly, can they save themselves?

And is that howling in the woods the local wildlife, or is it something far more dangerous?


Darker Sides is the second book in the Blood Countess series, taking place two years after the Bathory murders. It presents a refreshingly disturbing take on supernatural horror in the coming of age genre, telling the stories of four high schoolers just trying to live their lives around the death and destruction that they cannot seem to escape.
