What a fantastic read! Karen Chance has started off her new series, an offshoot of her Cassie Palmer series, with a bang. This is a fast paced, action packed and enthralling read.
If you have read the Cassie Palmer series then some of the characters will be very familiar to you and I love how all the people across both the series tie up. Dory is Mircea's daughter, one of the main characters from the Cassie Palmer series, and although he is no doubt a fearsome vampire, a fantastic diplomat and a fabulous lover, his daddy skills require a little work. Raised as an outcast and relying only on herself Dory is one of the tough-as-nails, kick ass heroines who isn't afraid to rush head first into fight, most of the time without thinking through the consequences. I adored her!
As this was a first book there was quite alot of information thrown at you, but as I had read the Cassie Palmer series most it was familiar. But the world that Karen Chance has crafterd over these two series is a cut above the rest, it's interesting and seems very well thought out.
There was also a little romance and alot of sexual tension between Dory and Louis-Cesare (another familiar face!) the vampire that Dory has been forced to work with to help bring down Dracula. It was contempt on first sight for both of them, but I loved seeing their opnion change as they got to know each other properly and I can't wait to see what happens next between them in Death's Mistress the next book.
Midnight's Daughter had fast paced action, magic and a little bit of romance all the best ingredients to make an unputdownable read.
