Overview

In this enthralling vampire novel, V.C. Andrews returns to the story of a beautiful girl desperate to escape her secret family legacy-bred to be a lure for unwitting victims of her father's blood appetites. Determined to break free and embrace a life outside the shadows, Lorelei runs away from the only world she's ever known. In a quiet rooming house, she finds refuge among the tenants of elderly Mrs. Winston, and the beginnings of a new love with Liam, her landlady's handsome grandnephew. But Lorelei soon discovers that burying her past is not so easy: sinister nightmares torment her, and even her waking hours are plagued with the fear that at any moment, Daddy could destroy all she holds dear. Can a child of darkness ever truly feel safe in the light?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Daughter Of Light, book two in Andrews' The Kindred series, starts off where book one left off, with page-turning suspense." —RT Book Reviews
Publishers Weekly
Simultaneous hardcover and (through Pocket Books) mass market release will bestow neither collectible value nor broad appeal on this uninspired work from the estate of the late bestseller Andrews (1923–1986). Vampire’s daughter Lorelei Patio (introduced in Daughter of Darkness) has rebelled against her family legacy, which requires her and her sisters to provide her father with young male victims. She flees with her first love and then strikes out on her own for tiny Quincy, Mass., “a perfect place in which to get lost.” Lorelei strives to make a mundane life for herself and not draw unwanted attention from her family, the Renegades (vampire-hunting monsters), or the humans she dwells among. She becomes integrated into the community, developing relationships and finding a new suitor, but her remade life is threatened by her past. Readers who fondly remember Andrews’s dramatic gothic novels will be dismayed by this tale’s overwrought prose and underdeveloped plot. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Adopted by a vampire to procure victims, Lorelei attempts to flee her past and find a life outside the darkness in this sequel to Daughter of Darkness.

Daughter of Darkness was bad enough, but this sequel is a real stinker. Overwrought purple prose and metaphors, a nonsensical story, a gross incest premise (The vampire wants to have sex with his daughter, then granddaughter who is also his daughter, then great-granddaughter) make this book pretty bad on its own, even worse as it is printed under a poor dead woman's name. The ghostwriter needs to STOP with this garbage, or if he wants to write sucky vampire books, he needs to do so under his own name. I thought Twilight was bad, but this book puts Twilight to shame. Edward Cullen may sparkle, but at least he doesn't want to bang his daughter.

How is it that a women that has left this earthy life continue to write novels? I read the "Flowers In The Attic" series and loved them very much and was a total fan of her books, so I continued to read even after hearing of her passing, and then I noticed the stories were the same with only little differences claming to be a novel in its individual rights. They no longer had all the creativity known as a true V.C. Andrews Novel.

The story is lacking and so is motivation to keep reading as the characters in her family become really strange and incestuous.  Borrow it from the library and you may forget you checked it out.....

This book was pretty boring and very slow. I kept waiting for something to happen but nothing ever did. It didn't even read like a vc andrews book, as if it was written by someone else. Very disappointing and a waste of money. Readers, wait until its free or borrow it.

I really enjoyed the book. I liked it better than the first book of the series. You're mostly guessing when something will happean to the main character. I wish that the ghost writer added more books to this series. There's so much that one can do with the plot.

I was intrigued to keep reading. Always wanting to find out what was going to happen next to Lorelei. I enjoyed this book just as I have always enjoyed reading the V.C.Andrew books.
