Belgrade seems to have changed in the years since Count Otto von Hausburg last visited the city, and not for the better. Fog and mist have settled around the perimeter walls, and everywhere there is talk of murder, rebellion and death.

Serbia in the eighteenth century is a battleground of empires, with the Ottomans on one side and the Habsburgs on the other. In the besieged capital, safe for now behind the fortress walls, Princess Maria Augusta waits for love to save her troubled soul. But who is the strange, charismatic count, and can we trust the story he is telling us? While some call him the Devil, he appears to have all the fears and pettiness of an ordinary man.

In this daring and original novel, Novakovi invites her readers to join the hunt for the undead, travelling through history, myth and literature into the dark corners of the land that spawned that most infamous word: vampire.

'Fear and Servant is the story of the hunt for vampires and the violence and terror that such a hunt brings.' --Quarterly Conversations

'Novakovi spins an exquisite novel webbed in truth and lies; a joyful puzzle for the reader. 'Fear and His Servant' brilliantly plays with the idea of what makes us who we are, how much what we choose to reveal about ourselves really speaks the truth. Not even the Devil himself, it seems, is free of self-doubt.' --Bookanista
