Review - Vampire The Begotten by Dayna Ward

Vampire The Begotten by Dayna Ward The Begotten Vampire Series Book One Vampire Horror Publication date ‏ : ‎ October 31, 2021 Print length ‏ : ‎ 282 pages When the death of a child heralds the birth of a monster, living nightmares destroy pleasant dreams. What if your dreams don’t come true… but your nightmares do?

Eiko “Erica” Calmet loves children — they are her entire world. Caring for them quiets her mind and soothes a hurt residing deep within her soul. But the darkness of her dreams soon takes a more sinister turn as mutilated bodies start turning up at local synagogues, repeating a grisly pattern of ritualized deaths occurring at the same time every few years.

When she confides her secret nightmares to a trusted friend, a harmless elderly man named Henry, she is unprepared for the consequences that will deepen her despair and change her life for all of eternity.


What starts off as an ordinary tale following Eiko quickly changes when she confides in a friend from work. Ward's writing is very descriptive which I love! You are immediately pulled into the story and feel like you could be a character yourself. The situation between Henry and Eiko pulls you in deeper as Eiko struggles with her new reality. When Darwin and the others confront Henry, the story really gets intense. They feel he is hiding a secret and will stop at nothing to find out what it is. Then Sam gets involved with the group, I couldn’t wait to see how everything unfolded. This is not your typical vampire story. This book is so full of raw emotion, trauma, and struggle. It is beautifully written, and I look forward to the second book. Indie Book Addict Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Click the book cover to grab your copy.
