An episodic young adult series, Jennifer Malone Wright's The Vampire Hunter's Daughter combines six novelettes into a satisfying young adult novel with very natural section breaks for the reader. The story centers on a teenager who witnesses her mother's murder then finds herself thrust into a world of vampire hunters, surrounded by strangers willing to give up their lives just to save hers. Chloe Kallistrate learns answers to questions of her mother's past, but the mystery of her father remains cloudy and filled with anger and betrayal. Daughter of a hunter, destined for great power, surrounded by relatives she never knew, Chloe still has to continue her high school education while learning warrior skills, swearing vengeance on her mother's murderers, and, possibly, falling in love. But is everything really as clearcut as it seems?

The first three parts of this series lead from the well-drawn shock of first attack to Chloe's discovery of powers and skills and boyfriends. The story moves quickly with plenty of excitement, interesting hints of mystery, and nicely human characters. The plot certainly keeps the reader's interest and the episodic structure works well, with well-chosen divisions. Parts four through six add darkness and lonely determination to the mix, leading to a satisfying conclusion even while new storylines promise another series to come.

Disclosure: I was given free ecopies of these novellas by the author in exchange for my honest review.
