The Vampire Hunter's Daughter by Jennifer Malone Wright
Fourteen-year-old Chloe witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of a vampire. Before the vampire can kidnap her, there is an unexpected rescue by a group of vampire hunters. Overwhelmed by the feeling of safety, Chloe passes out and they whisk her away to their small community.
When Chloe wakes, she comes face to face with the only other living relative, besides her mother, whom she has ever met: her grandfather. Chloe’s mother kept her hidden from the family; now, Chloe tries to unveil the family secrets.
Through her grandfather, she learns her mother was a vampire hunter. In fact, her entire family is descended from the powerful bloodlines of vampire hunters. Chloe agrees to join the family she has never known for one reason only: Chloe vows to kill the vampire responsible for her mother’s murder.
With vengeance in her soul, Chloe is even more determined to follow through on her vow when she discovers the true identity of her enemy and how he is connected to her
The Vampire Hunter's Daughter is the first in a series of short stories by Jennifer Malone Wright.
(Synopsis taken from Amazon.)
The Vampire Hunter's Daughter is a great short story. It took me a little less than half an hour to read. The characters were very well written. At first, after Chloe's mother dies, I thought she was going to be a very weak miserable character, but she pulled it together. I think the experience made her stronger in the end. My only complaint about the story is I wish it was a little longer. I can't wait to find out if Chloe ever meets her dad. I so, I hope she defeats him with the kick ass training she is going to learn. This was a quick and fun short read. I am definitely buying part two as soon as I finish this review.
I give The Vampire Hunter's Daughter: 5/5.
