Midnight's Daughter

"Chance delivers in every way--utterly staggering." --thetruthaboutbooks.com


From the book jacket
for Midnight's Daughter:

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…

Praise for Midnight's Daughter

Midnight’s Daughter is a brilliant start to a new series and contains all the elements needed for a great urban fantasy.--vampireromancebooks.com

4 1/2 stars! In dhampir Dorina Basarab, Chance has created a sassy, tough heronie who never says die. Following these first-person adventures is going to be an adrenaline high!--Romantic Times  

More than an action adventure with a bit of romance thrown in, Chance manages to build her story on a foundation of family, friendship, loyalty, and responsibility. It's the background and inter-relationships of the characters, often told through flashbacks and shared memories, that add a richness and depth to the story. Knowing some of the backstory of the character's lives gives the reader a greater understanding of the motives driving the plot. Karen Chance doesn't disappoint, once again we have an action packed adventure with a strong female character that, while tough as nails, and a dhampir -- is also very human.—SFReview

Burgeoning with every conceivable magical being from mage to Vampire, troll to Fey - Midnight's Daughter is a veritable feast for lovers of the paranormal. Glorious fight scenes, eerily still moments of fractured memories, steamy romps that set the heart pounding; it is little wonder that Chance has caught the attention of so many fans of this genre. She delivers in every way - utterly staggering.--thetruthaboutbooks.com

One thing is very clear throughout the book – Karen Chance knows how to write. Not just the action scenes, or having the butt-kicking heroine throw out pithy one-liners but the set-up is clever, the involvement of the various factions in the simmering war is well thought-out as are the repercussions to the various actions characters take in the book.  I am looking forward to the rest of the series and will no doubt pick up the previous series from the back-catalogue.--monstersandcritics.com

This is a rip-roaring, action-packed, no-holds-barred story, which hits the ground running and doesn't let up until the very end. [But] there's a sly sense of humor threaded throughout the book, courtesy both of Dory's own unique outlook and of circumstances, and it keeps things from getting overly serious. I can tell I'm going to thoroughly enjoy this series. Midnight's Daughter is a strong start, and you don't need to have read the Cassie Palmer books to appreciate what's going on here. There may be a number of leather-wearing, buttkicking heroines on the market today, but there's plenty of room for Dory Basarab.--greenmanreview.com

Midnight’s Daughter is a rockin' story full of high speed action and adventure! --ck2skwipsandkritiques.com
