Dannica, a dhampirica, occupied a uniquely lonely place between the paranormal and mortal worlds. Many of the former were her prey; none of the latter would accept her.
As a young girl, Dannica witnessed her vampirić father take her mother. With her mother lost to her, Dannica dreads facing her father. She doubts what her very nature demands and fears she will not be able to do what she must.
Dhampirica is the third book of the series Adventures in Paranormal Archaeology. Archaeologist Erik Reissen investigates a mysterious mound burial and recovers for his Vatican masters the skeletons of two werewolves and the tortured remains of a vampire. For the first time in history, recovered archaeological remains escape from storage! Reissen enlists Dannica to give chase, and ultimately the dhampirica squares her old vow for revenge.
