#59: Daughter of Darkness - V.C. Andrews

When I was a little girl, Daddy told me never to fear the dark. “We exist because of the darkness,” he told me. “All of you are daughters of darkness.”

Beloved bestselling author V.C. Andrews’s passion for vampires comes to spellbinding life in a long-awaited novel of dark desires as all-consuming—and forbidden—as in Flowers in the Attic. One night, with the sound of a young man’s scream, high school senior Lorelei discovers that her stern but loving father, who adopted Lorelei and her sisters as infants, is no ordinary man. He has raised his beautiful girls for one purpose: to lure young men into their world of shadows. Like her sisters, Lorelei has been trained in the art of seduction and warned never to fall in love. But when she meets a handsome and charming classmate, she boldly defies her family and follows her heart—even if love is a poison. . . .

REVIEW:
I've read a lot of V.C. Andrews books, but this one reaches up high on the creeptastic list! I love creepy stories and this one definitely fits that bill.
I like Lorelei a lot. She asks a lot of questions because she senses things just ain't right. Some people get turned off by such inquisitiveness, but in this case, it is quite admirable.
I wasn't surprised in the least by the outcome, but was totally surprised by the ending. I figured it would be filled with a lot more fluffy stuff than what it had. I was happy that things were left wide open, and yet not dangling off a cliff, for the next book, Daughter of Light.
Can't wait to read that one and see what happens next. I am hooked! 
Suspense fans, get a copy!

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
