Review: The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter: Complete Collection – Jennifer Malone Wright
Chloe Kallistrate has spent her entire life sheltered by her mother. She’s been told it’s for her protection, to keep her out of harm’s way from those who seek to do them harm. Yet she’s unable to fathom as to why she really needs the extra protection in the first place. Granted, there are things that go bump in the night, things that her young mind can only imagine. But that doesn’t really merit keeping her hidden from the world outside, does it?
When her mother is unexpectedly murdered before her very eyes, Chloe begins to realize that there’s a lot that her mother never told her, like the fact that she’s now become a part of a family that she knew nothing about it. While her curiosity does get the best of her, she’s unable to make sense of the fact that her mother’s kept so many things from her for so long. Her family, the truth about her father, and the fact that he’s a vampire is something she knows will take her awhile to come to terms with.
She knows that if she’s to take revenge upon the people who hurt her and took her mother away from her, she’ll need to take the time to learn everything her mother refused to teach her from the get-go. Doing so, unfortunately, won’t be easy. She’s a slew of history to catch up on, weapons that she’ll need to learn to wield, not to mention that she’ll need to learn the proper art of defending herself. Never-the-less, she’s determined to learn and make the most of the situation at hand in hopes of making her father pay for the pain and heartache he’s caused her.
A subsequent attack on the village she lives in lands her smack dab within her father’s hands, something she detests with every bone in her body. She wants to make him pay, to see his blood spread across the ground she walks upon. Yet she never expected the man who’s caused her so much misery to treat her as if she’s the one thing he can’t do without. Everything she’s been told about him doesn’t correlate with what she’s experienced so far. He’s not the cold and callous man she’s always thought him to be, a certainty that further fuels her turmoil. Little does she know, appearances are definitely deceiving.
When the truth about her true purpose comes to light, Chloe isn’t sure as to what to make of it all. Her father is keeping her prisoner in hopes of gaining an ends to his own means, yet she refuses to give him the satisfaction of achieving those very goals. In her eyes, he’s undeserving and needs to pay for his indiscretions. Somehow, some way, she’s going to make sure he gets his due. But first, she’ll need to find a way to gain her freedom if she’s to ensure that he never hurts another person in the long run.
It was quite intriguing to finally read the rest of Chloe’s story. To see her grow and come to terms with who and what she is. Her strengthens and vulnerabilities are endearing and at times, I found myself cheering for her as she tries to overcome so many adversities. She has to deal with so much pain and heartache, so many lies and truths that she’s no longer sure as to what is up and what is down. I definitely enjoyed the story very much and look forward to what comes next for the series.
