In the second installment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe Kallistrate’s life has been turned upside down. After witnessing the vampire attack that left her mother dead, she’s adopted by her grandfather into a community of vampire hunters. Although she is directly descended from ancient, powerful vampire hunters, the rigorous training schedule begins to break her down. All she wants, all she has ever wanted, is to be a normal teen.
Chloe finds renewed motivation from an unexpected encounter with a fledgling vampire, the first she has seen since her mother’s death. Staring into the glowing red eyes of the vampire, Chloe freezes, forgetting all her training. After the vampire is vanquished by her friend and mentor, Drew, Chloe resolves to train harder, to be the best, and to kill the vampire who had her mother killed. Finally mourning her mother, Chloe allows her revenge to drive her, accepting that her life will never be normal.
This is a the second installment in the short story series The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter by Jennifer Malone Wright.

A befitting book for Halloween, don’t you think? Anyway…
Short book=Short Review
Chloe has started to grow on me, though I am still a little put off by the “purely evil” nature of the vampires. (Religious thing, see my review of the first book here.) I do wish that these book were just a little longer so that we could see more of Drew and Chloe and Luke and well, everybody.
Still, I have downloaded the third novella and am enjoying it greatly! I like how Miss Jennifer incorporated all kinds of mythology, not just vampires. Too often we see writers that focus on just one mythical beast and completely ignore the thousands of others. This was an easy, light read that I would definitely recommend to my paranormal reader friends and I hope you’ll check it out!
