Dorina Basarab is a dhampir-half-human, half-vampire. Back home in Brooklyn after the demise of her insane Uncle Dracula, Dory's hoping her life is about to calm down. But soon Dory realizes someone is killing vampire Senate members, and if she can't stop the murderer, her friends may be next...
I absolutely loved Death's Mistress!! I love Chance's writing, and this was no exception. Action-packed from start to finish. Poor Dory is always jumping from one crisis to another, but she still finds time for some light, hilarious hanky-panky in between.
This book has a blend of vamps, mages, dhampirs, fey, the works. I love Dory's character and all the hilarious side-characters. Imagine a vampire that she decapitated as a sidekick (both the head and the body!) !! With glimpses of Mircea, Louis-Ceasar, The Consul and others from her Cassie Palmer series to clinch the deal, this is a must read for fans and newbies of Karen Chance alike :-)
