Seventeen-year-old Lorelei Patio is the adopted daughter of 200-year-old vampire Sergio Patio. She never realized why her family has had to move so often or why she is not permitted to get too friendly with other young people. In fact, except for one shocking moment that seemed more like a dream, Lorelei never fully realized who and what her father was nor what her sisters were brought up to do for him. But one day, that all changed. Sergio’s "daughters" serve a very important purpose: they are all beautiful young ladies who can easily attract---and lure---men so that Sergio can feed on their blood. And now daddy expects Lorelei to be the obedient daughter he needs and bring him new victims.
But when Lorelei meets a shy, handsome young man named Buddy in school, she quickly falls in love with him. He feels the same way but wonders why she doesn't want to take him home to meet her father. Lorelei knows what will happen if she does and tries desperately to keep her two worlds apart, but she knows she can never truly escape her fate as a daughter of darkness. How will she manage these two worlds, and what will she have to give up to do so?

I haven't read anything by this author since the Flowers in the Attic series, which was pretty good. This one reminds me a little of early Anne Rice's books, though there's too much emphasis on teenage drama that goes a bit overboard, and by that I mean, the character is completely obsessed with having a boyfriend, above all other concerns.
I had a hard time getting through this however it was just interesting enough to want to keep going. You didn't really know the big part of the book and explanations until the last few chapters. I am just interested enough to try book 2 and we will see what happens.
This is not the usual V.C Andrews book. There is sort of incest, but not really because it is okay to be with family members if you are a vampire.
It looked as if it was going to be a good book, but I was totally disappointed in the ending. The narration was decent, and if want something to kill time then this is your book. The story however seemed a bit under developed... and just when it got interesting...the book ended. Not sure I would waste a credit on this one.
Surprisingly Great Read!
This whole book was great, I can't think of just "one" moment that I would mark as the "most memorable"
This reader did a very good job with the whole performance, I was pleasantly surprised.
Yes, I listened to this book in one sitting! I could not turn it off! And then I listened to it again!
I do hope they continue making the rest of this series into audible form! I keep checking but so far, no luck.
This was a qick listen and completely different from any of VC Andrews other books. Nice change of pace.
i read this book and it was really good and would love to read it again but i am getting sists on my eyes so i down loaded it to audible book and and think i will enjoy it as much.
