The Vampire Hunter's Daughter

YA/Paranormal

This special edition of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter contains parts I-VI, the complete collection. 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.

 

Experience the world of vampire hunter’s, vampires and mythology with Chloe in this exciting series.

I took the first book off the stack and examined the cover. It was titled Vampires throughout History. The cover was leather and so old it was stiff and cracked in spots. The pages showed signs of age too, yellowing and stiff to the touch. There was no table of contents, so it looked like I was going to have to scan the entire book for what I was wanting. I flipped the pages carefully, so as not to tear any of them.
 
After an hour of scanning and about half way through the book, I found something referring to vampire children.
~~~
Although extremely rare, the natural-born offspring of vampires exist throughout the world. These rare beings are called the dhampir. Dhampir are usually the product of a vampire and mortal. The most common of these unions is a male vampire impregnating a mortal woman. Vampires, both male and female, are seductive in nature and some mortals came willingly to these unions. However, the majority of dhampir born were produced through an act of rape.
 
Solitary by nature, it is uncommon for a vampire to settle with any one mate for long. The children of vampires, the dhampir, more often than not exhibit all the characteristics of their vampire parent. The strength, speed and agility are the usual hereditary traits that the children develop. They are not always born with these traits but develop them as they grow into adulthood.
 
The dhampir are day walkers. Some of these children are sensitive to the sunlight but will not perish in the direct rays. Most have no sensitivity at all. Drinking the fresh blood of mortals is also not usually required of the dhampir; however, some have a liking for it. Very few actually need it to survive.
 
Most dhampir are rejected by the vampire species because of their mortality and weaknesses. Mortals often reject the dhampir, as well, due to their vampirism, so they frequently remain outcast.
 
Dhampir are known for becoming vampire killers. Their closeness to the vampires and their vampire characteristics make them powerful vampire hunters. The unique ability to track and kill vampires is specific to only the dhampir and the mythological race of vampire hunters.
 
Historically, dhampir became vampire hunters as a trade. Towns and villages became plagued by vampires who were terrorizing their homes and killing their people. The dhampir accepted contracts in exchange for monetary payment and used their likeness to their vampire counterparts to exterminate the vampires.
~~~
Holy crap, that was a lot to process. The more I read the passages, the more I understood that my being a hunter was more than my heritage; it was my history and my future. Everything about my bloodlines had hunters involved.

 

Character Interview with Chloe from The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter
 

Hello Chloe! Thanks so much for stopping by so we can find out more about you!  It's fabulous to meet you.  Tell us about your family.

My family is not very big, it’s just my grandfather. But we have a lot of people who live with us. My mother was murdered by vampires on order by my father, who was also a vampire…he is dead now too. My grandfather, and myself, we are vampire hunters…like every other person who lives in our town.

What was the scariest moment of your life?

I’ve had a lot of scary moments in my life. But, I’m going to have to go with either witnessing my mother being murdered or when we were attacked by three vampires and I made my first kill, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it out alive that night.

What book are you reading now?

I am reading a book about the history of witchcraft called “Witchcraft through the ages.” I am trying to find out about the heritage of a friend of mine who was told by my demi-goddess grandmother times like a hundred, that she is a child of the earth, a witch, but we have no idea where to find out about her family.

What is your favorite meal?

I am a huge fan of meat! I love steak! I have realized, over the last year, that this is probably because I am half a vampire and that is why I like my steak extra rare, it tends to gross people out at the table.

What do you do to unwind and relax?

I don’t really have a lot of time to unwind and relax because I have school and training all the time, but when I have time I like to spend it up at the waterfall with…well, you have to read my story to find out who! (I know, I’m evil )

If I came to visit early in the morning would you impress me as being more like a chirpy bird or a grumpy bear?

I’m actually a very good morning person, so I would probably be more like a chirpy bird. Granted, I do like to have a shower and coffee, but I get up super early so I’d probably be showered and dressed and caffeinated by the time you showed up anyway.

What would we find under your bed?

If you looked under my bed right this minute you would probably find a couple pairs of shoes, some dust bunnies, a shotgun and some boxes with Alice’s junk in them.

What are you passionate about these days?

These days, I’m still passionate about training. Not so much the hand to hand fighting part where I’m usually getting knocked on my butt, but the weapons part I totally love. I have a true love for guns and archery…it’s my favorite.
 
 
 




Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children, whose ages range from fourteen all the way down to six months, and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on freelance work or her beloved fiction.

 

When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”

 

In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.

 

Jennifer is also the author of The Birth of Jaiden, a paranormal novel filled with action, suspense, and even a love story.

As a writer of somewhat erotic vampire stories (about guardian vampires who safeguard humans) I'm interested in the works of fellow authors. Check out my "Immortal Relations" series which has a true event that started me writing the books.
