Review - "The Vampire Hunter's Daughter: Part III - Jennifer Malone Wright

In the third installment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe Kallistrate's first Christmas without her mother is difficult. As part of the grieving process she visits her mother’s grave for the first time and there, she is visited by Sostrate, the immortal demi-god from whom she is descended.

As she comes of age, Chloe is changing and developing the gifts unique to her heritage. She discovers a new power she must learn to use and control, as if being a teenager wasn't difficult enough. During this emotionally chaotic time in her life, the community is attacked, her grandfather injured and hunters are killed. After almost losing her only remaining family, Chloe questions whether her continued presence in the community will sacrifice everyone she has come to care about.

My Review:

The third part of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter continues on with Chloe’s life with her grandfather and learning the skills required to kill a vampire.  One night while visiting her mother’s grave she is visited by Sostrate, a demi-god that Chloe is descended from.  She is given a gift to use in her quest of becoming a great vampire hunter (her so to speak destiny).   

Once again the community is attacked however this time her grandfather is badly injured and Chloe is devasted knowing that is because of her that he almost died.  She starts to question whether or not her being there is a good thing. 

Another great part of the story.  I love how the story is broken up even though I read it all together  and I love the added character of Sostrate, someone to give Chloe strength when she needs it the most.
