Sum It Up! The story moved far too slowly

“Never be afraid of the darkness,” Daddy always told me. “Darkness is our friend. The shadows protect us.”

In this enthralling vampire novel, V.C. Andrews returns to the story of a beautiful girl desperate to escape her secret family legacy—bred to be a lure for unwitting victims of her father’s blood appetites. Determined to break free and embrace a life outside the shadows, Lorelei runs away from the only world she’s ever known. In a quiet rooming house, she finds refuge among the tenants of elderly Mrs. Winston, and the beginnings of a new love with Liam, her landlady’s handsome grandnephew. But Lorelei soon discovers that burying her past is not so easy: sinister nightmares torment her, and even her waking hours are plagued with the fear that at any moment, Daddy could destroy all she holds dear. Can a child of darkness ever truly feel safe in the light? (Goodreads)


I truly do not like reading a book and having to give it a bad or mediocre review. I think the V.C. Andrews Estate should consider hiring new ghost writers, these do not hold up to the original material of V.C. Andrews. I had not read the first book in this series, but was hoping this book would be an excellent read like the older Andrews' books. That was not the case with this book. The story moved far too slowly and was very predictable. The ending was a bit surprising, but could not make up for rest of the book. I would definitely have trouble recommending this book, and if I did recommend it, it would be to a far younger crowd who might not mind the predictability of the story.
