[BOOKS] ⚡ Midnight's Daughter ✯ Karen Chance – Loufanet.info

Midnight's Daughter What an excellent first introduction to a UF seriesWhatever control I may have acquired through long centuries of practice, I m still a monster And like the one who sired me, I ll always love death and destruction a little bit than anything, or anyone, else. UF heroines are usually some of my favorite female characters ever written And Dorina Basarab has definitely been added to this list Dorina is a dhampir, half vampire and half human Because of what she is, she s been an outcast all her life as vampires hate dhampirs and humans fear her kind Most dhampirs don t have long life spans mostly because of their uncontrollable fits of rages, but Dorina has managed to build a life for herself, using her skills and her anger to kill vampires and demons who need killing I loved Dorina She s got a ton of attitude, she s snarky and kick assShe s also the bastard daughter of Mircea, who is a very powerful vampire, which also makes her the niece of Dracula aka Vlad Dorina and Mircea has quite a stormy relationship, he s definitely not the best father, and Dorina kind of hates him When Dorina Basarab Is A Dhampir Half Human, Half Vampire Unlike Most Dhampirs, Though, Dory Has Managed To Maintain Her Sanity Now Dory S Vampire Father Has Come To Her For Help Again Her Uncle Dracula Yes, The Dracula , Cruelest Among Vampires, Has Escaped His Prison And Her Father Wants Dory To Work With Gorgeous Master Vampire Louis Cesare To Put Him Back There Although Dory Prefers To Work Alone, Dracula Is The Only Thing That Truly Scares Her And When She Has To Face Him, She Ll Take All The Help She Can Get I am sure there is a perfectly good reason why my niece is naked and tied to her bed I am also equally certain that I do not wish to hear it I ve been reading the Cassie Palmer series for years but never had an urge to pick this side series up I ve finally succumbed to temptation, probably because I had it on my shelf forever and it popped up as a group read with Girls, Guns and Grimoires While I liked the tone of Cassie s stories , this one was also good in its own way.It follows the standard fare with UF Girl with powers who is tough and has a stick up the butt about certain issues In this case Dory hates daddy dearest, the vampire Mircea from the Cassie series, vampires in general, most other supes, andwell, almost just people in general She clearly doesn t have friends other than contacts she s willing to kill if things annoy her, with the exception of one who is currently missing At first her attitude was abrasive and irritating, but she grows on me as her personality thaws when faced with other people she starts warming up to.Besides Mircea, Louis Cesare is around from the Cassie series, but we see completely different sides of his personality here At first he s an ass, then he s rather whiny, but then he s likable again There is a disconnect with the vampire Mircea, a lack of warmth that shows some emotion at the end, and if it weren t for knowing his feelings in the Cassie series, I d hate him along with Dory For now I think I can always rely on a good urban fantasy to make me excited to read again This book was no exception The only words I would really use to describe it are fun and fast paced The reason the book really shined though, were the characters The story is centered around Dorina, our resident dhampir half human half vampire with a whole slew of issues Dhampirs in this world are a mostly hated and given their rarity, Dorina is quite the outcast I ve found that I really love stories where our main character feels like an outsider because it creates a nice internal struggle that goes along nicely with the external ones But that isn t to say that she spent the whole book wallowing in self pity In fact, she did the exact opposite She takes no bullshit from anyone, and her i give no fucks attitude was so fun to read about She was physically and mentally able, which was a nice to surprise given that a lot of authors tend to forget about the mental strength Her dedication to her best friend, Claire, was so great because I love seeing strong friendships in books Her character was one of the best parts of this story and I definitely did not mind being stuck in her head.Louis Cesare, Fresh blood at midnight isn t red It s a purplish black that easily blends into the shadows Karen Chance is my all time most favorite guilty pleasure Her stories are sinfully over the top I live for it Dorina Basabarb is a Dhampir, which comes with black out rages, family issues, and never feeling like she belongs After endless years of existence, she has found a way to survive Focus her fits on those preternatural beings that deserve death, and protect a magic null and Dory s best friend Claire If there is one thing you should know about a Karen Chance novel, it is that the plot interlocks at least five different revolving forces at a time, creating a larger than life, fast pace, survivalist adventure staring a bad ass anti hero Claire is missing and Dorina is going crazy trying to hunt her down Dory s father comes back into her life to recruit her for a job The job is to contain their deranged Uncle Dracula yes, that Dracula The payment for This is one of the best urban fantasy series and one of my most favorites I love Dorina and Louis Cesare I always have a blast revisiting this world I highly recommend this book for urban fantasy lovers who love kick ass chicks, sexy and dangerous vampires, a touch of romance, and action packed from beginning to end Karen Chance is one of the most talented writers of urban fantasy right up there with Ilona Andrews and Jim Butcher Obviously, I love this book series DAwesome quotesMy lordI can explain , Louis Cesare began, looking less than certain that he could do anything of the kind.Radu held up a hand I am sure there is a perfectly good reason why my niece is naked and tied to her bed I am also equally certain that I do not wish to hear it Louis Cesare s anger suddenly filled the small room like water, and in a heartbeat his eyes went fro More like a 3.5 star rating I m giving this 4 stars only because we can t give half a star ratings and 3 is too low There is something about this and the Cassie Palmer series that just wears me out I think it s too f I love love love this book This is a great story for people who love urban fantasy It s action packed, fast paced and the plot is well thought out Plus it has a lot of wit and sarcasm, which makes it a typical Karen Chance book She has the wonderful ability of getting you soaked up in a fantasy world with a variety of creatures and serious problems, but still she keeps a funny edge, never taking herself too seriously The inclusion of characters like Olga hilarious , Radu you can t help but love the guy and Stinky no comment needed make sure of that too I also loved the tension between Louis Cesare and Dory It is present throughout the whole book and ranging from hate to attraction but it doens t take over the story line I can t wait to see where Karen Chance plans to take their relationship I read Midnight s Daughter befo My socks have been rocked I ran out of stock around midnight and dropped by a place, got some Chinese I hoped he meant takeout Mu shu pork he told me indignantly I held off from immediately jumping into the Dorina Basarb series, a spin off of the Cassie Palmer novels by Karen Chance, for a couple of reasons 1 I have some quirks with the Cassie Palmer books that I feared could spill over into this seriesand2 I wasn t sure if I wanted to invest in a series with such a long wait between novels In my perfect world, I d get two books per year when it comes to my fave series, not one every TWO years.So it took quite a while to get around to this, but I am so glad I finally did.This spin off series centers around Dorina Basarab, a dhampir vampire human hybrid assassin Not quite enough of either species, Dorina s kind is rare and doesn t fit anywhere in either society It doesn t help that she is subject to rages that cause her to black out and endanger not only those around her, but herself as well.It turns out she is the daughter of the great and powerful Mircea Basarab, and he needs her skills to help capture her uncle and his brother, Dracula, who has escaped from prison Crazy and dangerous, this is a tall order, so Mircea also adds another master vampire to the mix, Louis Cesare The goal is for Dorina and Louis Cesare to work together, but we all kn
