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

In the fourth installment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe and the other vampire hunters are suffering the aftermath of the vampire attack on their community. Many hunters were injured, and loved ones were murdered. More than that, there is a loss of security and peace since the hunters' safe haven was breached and invaded. Chloe and Drew struggle just to get along and understand each other without Luke there to guide them.

During this period of uncertainty, Chloe and Drew both try to live a normal life as teenagers by going to the New Year's bash, she with Gavin and Drew with Christina, Chloe's recent rival. Chloe is, once again, reminded that nothing is 'normal' in her life any more, when she begin to show signs she's developing supernatural gifts from her father's bloodline, too.

The bash does little to lift her feelings of guilt and responsibility for the attack on the community, because she knows it's her presence there that caused the vampires to attack the hunters. This attack nearly took the life of her only remaining family member from her mother's side. She doesn't want to put anyone else she loves at risk.

Before she has time to put any plans into action, a surprise phone call from someone unexpected sets the wheels in motion. Chloe now knows what she must do...

My Review:

So much has happened with Chloe and all the other vampire hunters.  After the attack everyone is trying to put things back to normal again although without Chloe’s grandfather there her and Drew and struggling to be normal. 

Chloe is asked to the New Year’s bash by Gavin and as a big surprise Drew is going with Christine whom Chloe can’t stand.  There are feelings there between the two that neither of them want to admit to which makes things even more difficult for them. 

As Chloe is struggling to fit in and make a normal life for her, she is still questioning whether or not her being there is the best thing for the hunters. 

This is another great installment in the series. I read this as a collection but I like how Jennifer has broken them up into individual parts enabling the reader to decide early on if this story is for them or not.  I also like the little twists that are thrown into the mix along the way, testing Chloe and making her question what is right or wrong.
