Midnight's Daughter

Karen Chance
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen chance has written a paranormal—with bite. 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…

Not star rating this one.  I felt completley different about the first and second halves.


First half -- loved it.  Right mix of interesting characters, action, emotion, worldbuilding, story, etc.  Exactly the type of urban fiction I was in the mood to read.


Second half -- endless battle, battle, battle, battle, battle ... Boring.  Okay, so as soon as reader felt there was defeat or victory up pops new opponent or new situation to battle on -- but that just got repetitive.  


The big "reveal" wasn't even really a shocker.  It was nice to get a few more snippets of back story buried in the last half battle bits.


And I am intrigued enough to continue the series when in the mood (not likely soon).
