"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...

Karen Chance has lived in France, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, but always comes back to America. She currently lives in Central Florida, the home of make-believe, which may explain a lot.

I love love love this book!
This is a great book 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 through out 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 before the Cassie Palmer series so I've always loved Mircea cause he is more fleshed out in this book. However manipulative he has a strange affection for his family members and refuses to be pushed away by Dory.
I've read an reread this book with much pleasure and I can't wait for the next installment.
