✥ In her initial foray into the world of vampires, Andrews takes a fresh approach in this novel about a vampire and his beautiful daughters, all of whom have been told that they are adopted. Sergio Patio, the two-hundred-year-old head of the family, rules the roost with his charm and his undercurrents of danger. ~ Fang-tastic: "Daughter of Darkness"

✥ BLURB: 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.

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. . . .Dangerously enticing and deliriously intoxicating, V.C. Andrews’s Daughter of Darkness will leave readers thirsting for more. ~ Goodreads | Daughter of Darkness (Kindred, #1)

✥ His three daughters and his "housekeeper" are devoted to him and cater to his every wish and desire. The family moves frequently from city to city, and the girls are ordered to make no friends—particularly no boyfriends. The middle daughter, Lorelei, begins to question her real parentage and wonders about frequent and mysterious goings on that involve young men brought home by the oldest (Ava) for brief and violent "visits" with Daddy. In answer to her questions, Lorelei is continually told to be patient, that it will soon be "her turn." Lorelei is not patient, and she eventually uncovers horrible family secrets that she finds impossible to accept, particularly when she meets and falls for Buddy, who may be her father's next "visitor." ~ Fang-tastic
