This is just... I don't even know what to say. I could go over all the wrong things in this book, but that would take too long. For those of you who read Daughter of Darkness, you know how that book ended and how it should lead into this one. I'll just discuss my biggest beefs here.

One thing that bothers me is how so willingly Lorelei abandoned Buddy in the last book, but in here she was willing to stand up to her father for Liam. Thank God we have a normal name for the main male for once, Buddy, Ryder, and Brayden were just horrible. There is vampire drama, of course, but the book winds up in a cheesy way, with her parents (and sister) going to her wedding.

But then her father demands, that in exchange for Lorelei's freedom from the vampire world, she has to give up her firstborn child if it is a daughter. Yes, I am not kidding you. If you've read the real VCA's books, you should be no stranger incest (at least fictional) but she handled it well, giving a reasonable circumstance for it to happen. Not so here. It was just disgusting that he wanted a little not-yet-born baby girl who would eventually grow up to be one of his wives and bear him more girls to bring him victims... er, food. HIS OWN GRANDDAUGHTER, who is supposed to replace his daughter (who is also his granddaughter) as his wife/breeder. Ew. HIS OWN FREAKING UNBORN GRAND/GREAT-GRANDDAUGHTER. Jeez, the baby's not here and he's making demands for it! Sounds like Rumpelstiltskin to me... (And not the sexy Robert Carlyle type!)

I'm not sure what the heck it is with this whole incest thing. In this series, it is pushed way too far. Sergio (and apparently other male vampires) have sex/breed with their daughters, granddaughters, and so on, casting aside one woman for her daughter, lather, rinse, repeat.

I am only about 35% through the book and it just doesn't grab me like the other V. C. Andrews books did. I'm not into blood sucking vampires or anything like that. I liked the original books of the past. Any of the other books I just couldn't put them down and it only took me a few days to read, but this one and the Daughter of Darkness not so much. Unfortunately I b

ought it so I will finish it but not my cup of tea. Sorry!!!!!!I have every book by V. C. Andrews and have read them all, These last two are nothing like them.

OMG. You can't possibly be serious. Mr. Neiderman did a terrible job with this book. You knew that the second Liam started changing, he and Loreli would get married. Same with when Loreli saw Ava for a split second. You knew that Ava would be back. There was nothing to cause an suspense. This is coming from someone who normally loves Mr. Neiderman's work under V.C. Andrews name.

V.C. Andrews- I am so sorry that this book was published with your name on it. I know you could have done better.

In this sequel to Daughter of Darkness, it pretty much picks up where it left off with Lorelai hitchhiking a ride with a trucker and leaving Buddy in the restaurant. She (in usually VC Andrews style) almost gets raped by another guy who she naively accepts a ride from and then catches a plane to Boston and ends up staying in a boarding house in a small town and gets a job at a plumbing company where she eventually falls in love with the owner's son. They eventually catch up with her though but I don't want to tell too much.
Overall this book was just okay, Daughter of Darkness wasn't a great book either so I don't know why I expected so much out of this one. For some reason I wasn't really buying Liam and Lorelai's relationship. Plus the GW gets a bit repetitive with Lorelai's describing herself. We get it: she's beautiful but not humble or at one part when she says and this is the one I love(I'm being sarcastic) "I know I'm sexy" I'm mean seriously, ego much? I was hoping there was a bit of a twist in the plot overall but there wasn't. I'm guessing it's because I've been a fan of vampire and paranormal books and this didn't quite measure up. I made a prediction that would have probably been how any normal paranormal novel had of worked out and nothing near it even happened.

I've read "Daughter of Darkness" and I was really excited to see what happens to Lorelei in the sequel, "Daughter of Light". I have to say that Lorelei's character is so one-dimensional and dislikable, you want to just throw the book across the room. However, I got through it painfully as I discovered new characters with one-dimensional personalities too.

Didnt really enjoy this VC Andrews book. I have read all of her others, this one and Into the Darkness were a bit disappointing. They have gone into the vampire stories and its not my thing. So sad because I loved all of her other work.

Excuse me - what the hell was that? Oh, it starts okay with an attempted abduction. And kind of near the end some guy goes missing, but Lorelei only meets him for one scene, so no big loss. There's the threat that something could go really freaking wrong (Sergio would take claim of Lorelei's first-born daughter), but it doesn't because Lorelei wishes hard enough for a boy. That's right, ladies and gentlemen. Did your child not get the gender you wanted? YOU DIDN'T WISH HARD ENOUGH.

My beef with DAUGHTER OF LIGHT is that there's plenty of opportunity for shiz to go down, but it doesn't. A key question to ask when plotting a novel: What's the worst thing that could happen to my character right now? MAKE IT HAPPEN. This is Writing 101, people. If we wanted wish-fulfilment tripe, we'd read every other book on the market. That is NOT why we read V. C. Andrews. VCA books make readers feel better about our own families and lives in comparison. We need to read secrets, betrayal, madness, and murder. If the heroines are going to get their happily ever after, they have to go through a hell of a lot of shiz first. But DAUGHTER OF LIGHT is just a bunch of empty threats.

If you're going to do a sequel, do it properly.
