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 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, so when Dory has to go up against him, she'll take all the help she can get ...
My first review of Midnight's Daughter
I wanted to reread this book, seeing as I just recently read the Cassie series, which is set before this series, and part of one of those books leads to the ending of this one-with dropping her dad off. And the book before that started the whole plot of this book, with the stuff about her uncle!
So yeah, the series are intertwined. Because Louis-Cesare was in the Cassie series, too, which was really awesome, and made some things come together in this book, which I found to be really great! I love when things come together!
Just going on this journey again, was just so good! From their first meeting, to the complicated relationship that she has with her family, from her dad, her uncle Radu which has to be the best right now, and lastly, her uncle Dracula, Dory just seems to have a hard time with personal relationships!
The ending was just as explosive! And that is meant both literally, and figuratively, since so much happens, and running around and fighting, and revelations! Such a great ending, because while these book mysteries are self-contained, the relationships between the characters aren't!
I loved rereading this book, and I'm going to have to do the same for the next 2 books, I want to be in this world some more!
