*REVIEW* The Vampire hunters Daughter" volumes I -IV by Jennifer Malone Wright

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 vampires hunter’s, vampires and mythology with Chloe in this exciting series

I read this in preparation for a book Blog Tour that covers what happens after these volumes!  And after reading these i am looking forward to reading it!

This is the first of Ms Malone Wright's that i have read, and i really did enjoy them! Not too heavy, good story lines and great writing

The first few volumes were a history of and meeting Chloe, who is The Vampire Hunter's Daughter.  They were short enough to fill most blanks and fun enough to read, concentrating on just one main storyline in the volume.

Its refreshing to read a book from the slayers point of view again -vampires have been almost made into acceptable creatures in some books, so its nice to go back to almost the beginning, where they're considered dangerous, evil and powerful and to be stopped!

Each one shows us Chloe growing up as a person and also into her "powers" and her place in the new community that she ends up living in.  I'm expecting the next book to be a bit more....more.  if that makes sense! As its one entire book and not volumes, i think now the basics have been established, i think we'll have more of Chloe's interactions with Luke, Drew, Gavin and the many others who we didn't see much of.  Plus of course, more Vampire Slaying!

I read the entire 6 volumes in 2 days.  Which isn't as much as it sounds! Its about 400 pages for the entire volumes.

The benefit of having it in volumes means that there are no "boring" parts.  The volume tells its tale, and it ends till the next one!  Which generally takes place literally days, weeks or a couple of months after the previous volume.  I enjoyed turning every page and reading it, which is why i read it so quickly!

But it flowed really well as a story and I'm trying not to give too much of the story away!
if you fancy an easy paranormal read, this would be right up your street!
