I read this series a while ago and since today Book 2 "Death's Mistress" is coming out, Karen Chance is giving away 2 signed copies to celebrate! I decided then a review of Book 1 was in order hehe.
I found out about Karen Chance through her Cassandra Palmer series and I absolutely love it! The Dorina Basarab series is a spin off and a really awesome one at that!
Dory is the daughter of Mircea, who is one of the main characters in the Cassie Palmer series. Dorina is a kick ass character with a lot of attitude. She is a Dhampir, half-human and half-vampire. She has beaten the odds and not gone insane as the other known dhampirs have.
Her father shows up and right away we get sucked into their dysfunctional relationship. It was really interesting to see their dynamic and though it is very clear Dory is a very strong woman, you can't help but relate with her helplessness when it comes to her father.
She is asked to help capture her escaped uncle, who is none other than The Dracula himself. She is joined by the French vamp Louis-Cesare and all hell breaks loose.
I don't want to get into plot details, but this book is full of action and keeps you at the edge of your seat every second. The chemistry between Dory and Louis was awesometo watch and I can't wait to get more of it on book 2!
I give it 4/5 Loveys!
Smut Level 2/5!

Dory and Louis-Cesare quickly discover that the same master vampire Christine is bound to is also rumored to be in possession of the relic.
