Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


A woman must learn to take life by the throat after a night out leads to irrevocable changes in this juicy, thrilling novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Such Sharp Teeth and Black Sheep.

Sloane Parker is dreading her birthday. She doesn’t need a reminder she’s getting older, or that she’s feeling indifferent about her own life. Her husband surprises her with a birthday-weekend getaway—not with him, but with Sloane’s longtime best friend, troublemaker extraordinaire Naomi. Sloane anticipates a weekend of wine tastings and cozy robes and strategic avoidance of issues she’d rather not confront, like her husband’s repeated infidelity.  

But when they arrive at their rental cottage, it becomes clear Naomi has something else in mind. She wants Sloane to stop letting things happen to her, for Sloane to really live. So Naomi orchestrates a wild night out with a group of mysterious strangers, only for it to take a horrifying turn that changes Sloane’s and Naomi’s lives literally forever. The friends are forced to come to terms with some pretty eternal consequences in this bloody, seductive novel about how it’s never too late to find satisfaction, even though it might taste different than expected.

Praise For…

“Dysfunctionally adorable (and terrifying) vampire hijinks meets the complexities of female friendship and aging? Yes, please. So Thirsty takes mid-thirties ennui and adds teeth, charm, and a beating heart (of borrowed blood). Another winner from Harrison!”—Kiersten White, #1 NYT Bestselling Author of Lucy Undying: A Dracula Novel

"As beautiful as it is horrific, So Thirsty is a potent ode to love in its many forms. Rachel Harrison weaves a dark and gruesome tale of true friendship’s ability to transcend both death and undeath."—Chuck Tingle, USA Today bestselling author of Camp Damascus

So Thirsty is quirky, empowering, and scary as hell, and a unique spin on the idea that to start living, sometimes you just gotta take a bite out of life itself. Wild and unforgettable!”—Jenna Levine, USA Today bestselling author of My Roommate is a Vampire

"What a delight! Harrison pulls you into this car, insists we're in it for a good time, forever, and tears off on one fun, bloody ride. So Thirsty conjures up those chaotic in-it-to-the-end friendships you'd set your life on fire for, and you're happy to watch it burn so long as you're together."—Hailey Piper, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Queen of Teeth

“You’ve never read a vampire novel like this. So Thirsty is wonderfully funny and tender and there are lines that knocked me flat out. There’s a reason Harrison’s work is becoming part of the new horror canon: she’s a knockout talent.”—Erika T. Wurth, author of White Horse

"An outrageous romp, a sexy, scary, wacko heart-racer, and an ode to epic, once-in-a-lifetime, die-for-you friendship. I loved every character in this as much as if they were my own chosen family. The undead have never made us feel so alive! This is Rachel Harrison at her finest."—CJ Leede, author of Maeve Fly
