Image of Fury's Kiss (Dorina Basarab)

Our favorite half-human/half-vampire Dorina Basarab is back and ready to rumble in the third outing of the Midnight’s Daughter series. This chapter really starts to delve into what it means to be a reviled dhampir whose rages are violent and deadly. Dory is a complex, fascinating character and her growing relationship with master vampire Louis-Cesare is a complicated dance. If you like your urban fantasy with high-stakes political intrigue and gritty adventure, then look no further than Fury’s Kiss.

When Dory wakes up bloodied, the sole survivor of a battle, the Vampire Senate wants answers. She was part of a team trying to find out how magical weapons were being smuggled out of Faerie. She was discovered in a lab and rescued by Louis-Cesare, but Dory has no memories of what transpired. Her father, Mircea, suspects a larger plot, but finding answers may force Dory down avenues, both physical and mental, that she would rather not explore. (SIGNET SELECT, Oct., 544 pp., $7.99)
