Midnight's Daughter - Karen Chance

Midnight's Daughter

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.

Now Dory’s vampire father has come back into her life. Her uncle Dracula (yes, the Dracula) infamous even among vampires for his cruelty and murderous ways, has escaped his prison. And her father wants Dory to work with the gorgeous master vampire Louis-Cesare to put him back there.

Vampires and dhampirs are mortal enemies, and Dory prefers to work alone. But Dracula is the only thing on earth that truly scares her, and when Dory has to go up against him, she’ll take all the help she can get…

This is one of my favorite books of all time.

Midnight's Daughter is the first book of it's series. It was a thrilling read and Ms. Chance's ability to create such a world where magic, love, lust and everything paranormal exist hand in hand is absolutely amazing!

I immediately fell in love with the heroine, Dory. She doesn't take orders from no one, but of course for a dhampir like her, things tend to get a little complicated. Especially when the vampire assigned to her is a gorgeous master vampire, with rich auburn curls and sexy blue eyes.

Dory's roommate has somehow disappeared and she will go to all extents to bring her back safe and sound. Her vampire father, of course chose this time to come back into her life and ask for her help. And well, it's an offer she can't refuse as he offers to use the resources that she does not have to help her in her search. The catch? She has to capture the infamous Dracula, which also happens to be her uncle! what a shocker huh?

And I must say, her assigned partner is one sexy ass vampire! I would absolutely fall head over heels for Louis-Cesare, if only he was real!

Be prepared to tag along on Dory's mission. It's one wild ride! By the way, not only vamps are involved. The fey can prove to be quite sexy as well. And well, some are just dangerous! You can't not fall in love with this story and it's fantastic characters that will have you addicted and demanding for more!

The next in the series is Death's Mistress! Check out her other books and series here. Reviews for her other books and series should be up or coming soon!
