I am a fan of Karen Chance's Cassandra Palmer series. Her characters aren't particularly sharp but they are hilariously flawed. So, I was really excited when I saw that Audible.com had Midnight's Daughter which is the first book in her Dorina Basarab series. In Midnight's Daughter, we see half-human/half-vampire Dorina stumble through solving the mystery of the missing roommate. Unfortunately, Dorina is all bravado with very little depth and her character becomes tiresome. I gave Midnight's Daughter three stars largely because Radu's character is brilliant in this book. Chance gives him a quirky personality all his own. Finally while Joyce Bean's narration is adequate, I really miss Cynthia Holloway.

I love reading urban fantasy ... I especially love reading urban fantasy that has some family drama mixed in. Dorina (Dory) is the daughter of Mircea Basarab - older brother to Dracula and Radu the Handsome. Given the fact that she's the 'Black Sheep' due to being only half vampire and that it seems like all of vampire kind have an extreme aversion to her, she has a bit of a grudge - but that's nothing she's not used to - especially when she's number 1 on her Uncle's hit list, she's estranged from daddy except for him hiring her to try to get Vlad under control and the one person who's able to help her control her own Berserker like rages (her roomie) has gone missing. It's a busy time for this hunter of insane vamps .... but at least she has good company with a certain vamp that Mircea has going along for the ride with her.
I really enjoyed this book. I love the Cassie Palmer series as well, and this was just like candy on the side for me. I got to know more about a couple of my favorite characters and the narration was very good.
I would definitely recommend this book. I like action in my books, with a little bit of romance, and this book doesn't take the story too far in either direction.
