Death's Mistress - Karen Chance

Death's Mistress
by Karen Chance

Blurb on the back of the Book:
Dorina Basarab is a dhampir—half-human, half-vampire. Subject to uncontrollable rages, most dhampirs live very short, very violent lives. So far, Dory has managed to maintain her sanity by unleashing her anger on those demons and vampires who deserve killing.

Back home in Brooklyn after the demise of her insane uncle Dracula, Dory’s hoping her life is about to calm down. But then she gets some visitors. A friend wants Dory’s help in finding a magical Fey relic, and the gorgeous vampire, Louis-Cesare, is desperate to find his former mistress Christine.

Dory and Louis-Cesare quickly discover that the same master vampire Christine is bound to is also rumored to be in possession of the relic. But when the master vampire turns up dead, they realize that there’s more at stake than a missing mistress. Someone is killing vampire Senate members, and if Dory and Louis-Cesare can’t stop the murderer, they may be next…

Death's Mistress is the second of the Dorina Basarab series and I must say I'm in love with this book too. You have to tag along on this wild ride. The storyline is as thrilling as the last and the characters as sexy as the last!

You get to see Dory and Louis-Cesare back in action and well I'm still in love with them :] Dory has been running errands for her vampire father since she needs the money to pay the rent. However, he doesn't seem to be telling her everything she needs to know about certain errands, and well she's found herself in a dilemma and Louis-Cesare's sexy ass has just made her problems harder to deal with.

Not all is fun and games however. There's some serious crap happening with the vampire Senate and well the shit's about to hit the fan. The ending is quite a shocker and quite the unexpected.

Death's Mistress was a fun and thrilling read. And I absolutely cannot wait to read the next one! Did I mention, Louis-Cesare is one sexy ass vamp :] sigh... what I would give to be in Dorina's place :p
