Seventeen-year-old Lorelei Patio is the adopted daughter of two-hundred-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? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angie Pittinger | 2/9/2014

    " I was really excited to read the synopsis of this book. I have been a fan of Andrews for a very long time (even though the writing has gone downhill the past few books), and was excited to see the take on the popular vampire storied that have been making the rounds. However, I was sadly disappointed. The Daughters of Darkness is a great concept, however, so much of the story seemed so forced, and ridiculously predictable. I read the book all the way through out of respect for Andrews but I really had to force myself to get through it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miranda Hardy | 2/4/2014

    " When I was younger, I read VC Andrews and I knew she passed away and they hired a ghost writer to continue. I've read some series he wrote and some of them were actually pretty good. This book had a very slow progression and it was very predictable. I am not sure I would read anymore in this series, unless I prehaps won a copy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mau Takao | 1/9/2014

    " I didn't love it but good on the author for bringing out this book when vampires were so popular due to twilight! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candi | 12/30/2013

    " I liked it to an extent. If you have read any vampire books this one is completely different and as always it seems to have that VC Andrews incest vibe. Other than that it was not a terrible read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/2/2013

    " The book was very intense but the end was a totally let down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Irene Wade | 11/27/2013

    " I usually love V.C. Andrews books, but this was another disappointment! It's a different take on Andrews novels, as it deals with vampires and usually I love a good vamp book, but I was just not having it with this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bine Beard | 11/13/2013

    " I really did not like it. Was the first book I read of hers and I thought it would be good as so many people like her books. Was not impressed at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 T. M. | 11/10/2013

    " Interesting take on vampires, but not one of the better V.C.A. books out there. Doesn't call them "vampires" or elaborate on them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Livy | 10/17/2013

    " its really good worth reading twice "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Loopyloz | 10/17/2013

    " Boring and not A subject I enjoyed. Only read it because I enjoyed flowers in the attic series. Very disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saskia | 10/9/2013

    " Het is een leuk verhaal, maar het einde is vaag en niet bevredigend. Zelfs teleurstellend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meranda | 7/27/2013

    " This book was weird and disturbing. And that's all I have to say about that. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 6/14/2013

    " I loved V.C. Andrews' books as a tween/teen. I picked this up in Penn Station when I had a lonely trainride home ahead of me. It was a few bucks and a waste of money. It wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. Crappy writing style and predictable everything. Worst ghostwriter ever...give.it.up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deanna | 4/28/2013

    " I thought it was an alright book. The ending made me mad though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/30/2012

    " It was an ok book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lacy Brand | 9/8/2012

    " Most VC Andrews have darker story lines, this one definitely fit the mold. I do wish it was part of a series rather then a stand along book. There are a lot of things that I feel should be expanded on. It wasn't a terrible book, but left me extremely confused. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashe | 9/7/2012

    " Was not very impressed with this novel, it was very slow and boring I the beginning then it seemed like they through alot into the last few chapters to make up for it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 8/29/2012

    " It was an ok book. I definitely thought the ending could've been a whole lot better. It felt like a rushed, not thought out ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 12/29/2011

    " Amazing!!! A little hard to get into at the beginning- but otherwise it was really great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 10/18/2011

    " It was okay. Not sure why I bothered. It's been a long time since there's been any quality writing from those behind Andrews name anymore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 8/20/2011

    " I really liked this book, it was pretty much a tween read but damn if it wasn't a good story. Sure, it lacked depth and literary prose...but it kept my attention! :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bine | 5/11/2011

    " I really did not like it. Was the first book I read of hers and I thought it would be good as so many people like her books. Was not impressed at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruby | 5/2/2011

    " this one was oddball, but interesting. the ending was left hanging too. will eventually buy it used but not as impressive as others by VCA. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tashana | 4/9/2011

    " Terrible, creepy(not the good kind), hard to want to keep reading and just overall bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candi | 3/31/2011

    " I liked it to an extent. If you have read any vampire books this one is completely different and as always it seems to have that VC Andrews incest vibe. Other than that it was not a terrible read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 3/29/2011

    " I really liked this book, wish there was a sequel to it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 3/1/2011

    " The ending was a little confusing and very out of the blue. They should write a sequel for this so it would make more sense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 2/23/2011

    " This book was really weird....most vampire stories are not written this way...And the ending really did nothing for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 2/21/2011

    " I grew up LOVING VC Andrews' books. When I saw this book at WalMart, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Sadly, I was so incredibly disappointed!! I kept reading, hoping that it would become the kind of suprising book I was used to from VC Andrews... but it never did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendie | 2/9/2011

    " It was a strange and dark book. Not so happy and gives you a feeling of desperation at some parts but it does go with V.C Andrews righting style. I liked it. I hope another book is soon to come so I can see what happens next. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pam | 1/22/2011

    " time for V.C. Andrew's gohstwriter to give up. He just can't hold to her standards anymore. This book was slow and boring! "
