About This Book
“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?

This seductive sequel to V.C. Andrews’s Daughter of Darkness will hold readers captive in its irresistible spell.

    The Unwelcomed Child
    MY MOTHER HAD LOOKED INTO THE FACE OF EVIL SO MANY TIMES SHE KNEW WHAT IT WAS. IT WAS ME. I WAS BORN WITHOUT A SOUL. . . . An edgy new novel from the author who shocked a generation with her groundbreaking Flowers in the Attic saga, The Unwelcomed Child is V.C. Andrews at her surprising, sensual, and unforgettable best. Elle Edwards grew up believing that because of her mother’s sinful ways she was born without a soul, and that’s why she was abandoned to the care of Grandmother Myra and Grandfather Prescott. Raised in a virtual prison to ensure that her inherent evil will not taint her vigilant guardians, Elle’s days are occupied with homeschooling, strict religious studies, and vigorous housekeeping in the devout couple’s upstate New York home. Elle knows practically nothing of the outside world, even as she emerges as a young woman with impressive artistic talent. Myra’s strict prohibitions are immovable, but Prescott acknowledges Elle’s special gifts, and gradually persuades Myra to allow the girl some time outdoors to sketch from nature. But when she makes a secret, forbidden connection to vacationers at the nearby lake—a handsome boy and his precocious twin sister—Elle’s world will shatter as her past meets her present. Will learning the truth about her mother send her plummeting to hell? Maybe some discoveries are forbidden for a reason . . . and maybe Elle will wish she never knew why she has always been The Unwelcomed Child.
