A dhampir is about family. It’s about reconciling what you are and where you came from with your own Integrity and the realities of living in the All Night Society’s shadow as a human being who’s neither a slave nor food. It’s about the intersection of love and hate, and it’s about learning how to forgive — or how to stop being so forgiving. It’s about the secrets you keep for family’s sake, and the power you wield over your parents with what you know. It’s about the endless conflict between human and vampire, heartbreak dogging dysfunctional relationships, and looking past the face of the monster. Maybe you love what you find there. Maybe you want to send it to hell so you’ll forget it’s a part of you.
