Publisher Description

Perfect for fans of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, this intriguing urban fantasy follows the story of Kat Chanter, who discovers that the world she knows is controlled by ancient creatures who feed on blood. And she might just be one of them ...

Lately things have been getting weird for pathology technician Kat Chanter. She's been craving raw meat, and having dreams so realistic they're scary. When she accepts a job offer from the prestigious Hema Castus Research Institute, she hopes she'll have the chance to discover what's wrong with her, but instead, her move to New York thrusts her headlong into a treacherous hidden world, where the wrong move could be fatal . . .

Tarot, witchcraft and astrology all take on a frightening resonance in Dark Child's richly imagined alternative reality where vampiric beings live among us, hidden by magic. Dark romance tangles with paranormal fantasy and page-turning suspense in this enthralling tale of 'dark child' Kat Chanter, half human and half vampire, who has woken an ancient prophecy and must face a formidable destiny.

While stuck in a tragic and heart breaking chapter in my own life, this book offered the perfect place to hide. Thank you for a wonderful story and a perfect distraction from my loss.

Must read !

I had been looking for something to read for a few months now .. Ever since I finished The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare .. I tried reading several books but nothing grabbed me .. Until I read a sample of Dark Child ! I finished the sample and knew I was hooked .. I had to know what would happen next ! I love the way the story is built up and the author really sets the scene. It never feels rushed to get to the next climactic point, but it holds you steadily captivated by the different characters and obstacles they are facing. I was a big fan of the Cassandra Clare series as well as Harry Potter and several other horror/fantasy books .. But I will say I am very thankful that this series is not about 17 year olds ! It's nice to read about characters your own age ! I read the whole series in 4 days and cannot wait til the next one comes out !
