Lorelei Patio is a vampire, but all she wants is to live a normal human life. She runs away from the only life she’s ever known, along with the safety she has under her father’s roof. But if she had stayed she would have had to live by the life set down for her, which was a completely horrifying and gruesome fate she couldn’t bear to live. Lorelei makes friends with the motherly Mrs. Winston and develops a growing affection and understanding for the handsome but troublesome (with quite a scandalous reputation I might add), Liam Dolan. Haunted by the thought that daddy might crush the life and people in it she holds so dear, brings up the question can she ever feel safe?
Lively and exciting, Daughter Of Light by V.C. Andrews has all the qualities a romance/action novel about vampires should have. It’s fast-paced and racy, and keeps you on edge. What I clearly like about this book, is how the characters are developed well and even though the subject is not in my usual everyday life, it was easy to relate and understand. Lorelei Patio isn’t one of those characters created just as a skin for the story, she is the bones of the story. It changed my opinion on fantasy novels around. Romantic fantasy action novels aren’t exactly my go-to genre, I like stories with characters that tell a story on their own which I’m happy to say Daughter Of Light does. I’d like to add that although this was book two in The Kindred series and I’ve have not read the first book, Daughter Of Darkness, the sequel read quite fine for this newcomer. I am highly satisfied with this book, and I would most definitely recommend it!
