The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter: Part I-III Review

Part I:


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.


What an amazing start to “The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter”!!!

Jennifer is a wonderful author and she has created another fantastic story and I love her style of writing.

Part I is the introduction of Chloe who is the main character and “The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter”. She’s going to be an amazing character to follow and get to know.  I can’t wait to see her in action against the vampires because her heritage really intrigues me.

This is going to be one interesting series.

Part II:


In the second instalment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe Kallistrate’s life has been turned upside down. After witnessing the vampire attack that left her mother dead, she's adopted by her grandfather into a community of vampire hunters. Although she is directly descended from ancient, powerful vampire hunters, the rigorous training schedule begins to break her down. All she wants, all she has ever wanted, is to be a normal teen.

Chloe finds renewed motivation from an unexpected encounter with a fledgling vampire, the first she has seen since her mother's death. Staring into the glowing red eyes of the vampire, Chloe freezes, forgetting all her training. After the vampire is vanquished by her friend and mentor, Drew, Chloe resolves to train harder, to be the best, and to kill the vampire who had her mother killed. Finally mourning her mother, Chloe allows her revenge to drive her, accepting that her life will never be normal.


Mind blowing, beautiful and powerful!!!

We pick the story up 2 months after part I finished off. I found this to flow really well as it helped the story move forward and not drag on.

Chloe’s Vampire Hunting training has begun. She’s living with her Grandfather, Luke and Drew, who is a family friend and the one she’s training with.

There is still so much that Chloe doesn’t know about vampires and hunters. Her ancestory  is revealed to her and from this revelation she learns she could possibly be a very powerful woman.

I found the character of Drew a bit confusing. At times he comes across as a brother to Chloe, but at other times he comes across as he’s in love with her. We really don’t know that much about Drew. He is a bit of a mystery. He lives with Chloe and her Grandfather, as he was helping look after Luke before Chloe arrived.

I’d really love to know more about Drew and what his intentions towards Chloe are.

Part III:

In the third instalment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe Kallistrate's first Christmas without her mother is difficult. As part of the grieving process she visits her mother’s grave for the first time and there, she is visited by Sostrate, the immortal demi-god from whom she is descended.

As she comes of age, Chloe is changing and developing the gifts unique to her heritage. She discovers a new power she must learn to use and control, as if being a teenager wasn't difficult enough. During this emotionally chaotic time in her life, the community is attacked, her grandfather injured and hunters are killed. After almost losing her only remaining family, Chloe questions whether her continued presence in the community will sacrifice everyone she has come to care about.


I am loving this series. It is fresh and exciting.

Chloe just keeps getting better and better throughout this series. She sure is going to be one very powerful woman. Once she learns all her skills she will definitely kick some vampire ass.

I found this quote to very good:

“Wars are not won because of hatred for the enemy; they are won because of love for what is being defended.”

It really stands out to me because it is so true. Hatred is the enemy itself at times.

My favourite part of the book was when Chloe was visited by Sostrate. It was a very powerful part. Her visit during Christmas and at Chloe’s mother’s graveside made it a very powerful part. It showed meaning and it showed her true heritage.

I look forward to seeing how Chloe’s new power of fire develops and I really want to know how her relationship with Drew develops.
