Chloe lives with her mom. Her dad died when she was little. It has always been just the two of them. They have moved around a lot. Her mom would just get this feeling to move and pack their stuff. Then away they would go.
One night, however, that all changes. Her mom wakes her up in the middle of the night panicked. She tells Chloe to hide. Strange men appear talking to her mother about a strange man. Her mother seems to know who they are. They threaten her. Chloe can’t hide while her mother is hurt. She bursts from her hiding place and realizes her life has just changed. There are vampires in her bedroom and they are there for her.
This is the very beginning of Chloe’s journey. It was an extremely fast read containing just the taste of the story that is coming. Chloe’ life is turned upside down as she learns who and what her mother was. She learns that she has been surrounded by secrets and even in hiding with no clue herself.
Her battle is just beginning. The author gets you started, then abruptly stops. I wish she would have developed more that of what she included in this first part. It appeared choppy in places. I also feel that there should have been more. I don’t feel it was enough to really keep you reading. For as short as it was, it needed to grab you quickly and forcefully into the story. Capture your attention enough to really want more. I don’t think it did that. So I only give it a 3 out of 5.
The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter Part 1 was a very interesting read for me because it’s only 19 pages long. That being said, it was really solid, action filled 19 pages. Unfortunately, I was really let down that it was so short, because I wanted more. I think that it would have been awesome if Jennifer Malone Wright wrote this as a full novel instead of a bunch of short stories.
I really liked the main character, Chloe. I thought that she was spunky, brave and innocent all in one package. My heart absolutely broke in pieces for her when her mother was killed right in front of her. I found myself wanting to jump right into the book and saving everyone…or at least to give Chloe one gigantic hug. Again, though, it comes down to how short the novel was. I truly believe that this could have been a great vampire series that reached Richelle Mead status, but I didn’t get the chance to experience that development. It normally takes me about 50 pages for me to fall head over heels in love with a story. 19 pages seemed like a mean type of teaser trailer.
After reading about the other books in the series, I’ve gathered that they follow each other pretty smoothly, but it seems like they have a lot of space between each one. One thing I can say, though, it that all of the covers are gorgeous! I love all the color that Jennifer Malone Wright incorporated. Very eye catching.
Above all else, I really love the idea of vampire hunters. The closest I’ve come to reading about vampire hunters was in Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series, and you’ve already seen me compare the two authors above. Not only did Jennifer Malone Wright come up with a good idea, but she developed it well. I loved her writing style, and I really hope she writes a full length book in the near future.
This was a free download, and like with most of the books I download for free I make my decision based on the title and the cover. Whoopee for me.
First off, I love that Cloe, the heroin of the story loves to read and I have to share this sentence with your guys from the book "These books are ancient. They aren't your basic encyclopedia or articles written by a blogger." Since the preservation of libraries with printed books is a cause I feel strongly about, I loved this sentence and had to share it with you guys.
This is an amazing story but. . . . hey, come on, you knew there would be a BUT. . . but, the story was only getting good when It ended, it is way too short and too boot it is the only book by this author that I own.
So two very large BUT's in this. Since that is the extent of my criticism it should be obvious that this is a must read. I loved the story, I loved the Buffy meets Angle type of background that I found so terribly lacking in the Buffy series.
This however is NOT a Buffy the Vampire Slayer rehash or spin off. This book has a very distinct, unique feel to it. I sincerely hope the author, Jennifer Malone Wright has some more of these extraordinary tales up her sleeve and that they are readily available.
I know The Birth of Jaiden is available and believe you me. I am a hunting. I give this short book a 7 ******* review. I can't wait to get my hands on some more books by this author.
About the Author
Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children--whose ages range from fourteen all the way down to six months-- and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on freelance work or her beloved fiction.
While she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what led her to write her first novel THE BIRTH OF JAIDEN.
In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad, and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.
Jennifer is also the author of THE BIRTH OF JAIDEN, a paranormal novel filled with action, suspense and even a love story.
