** In ''Secret Vampire'', your teenage daughter is fine one minute, the next she's been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer which will be extremely painful and debilitating, she only has three months to live, tops, and there is ''nothing you can do about it''.
** Suzanne Blanchett's backstory: ForcedToWatch as your [[WouldHurtAChild young siblings are tortured into confessing they're witches]], then [[CruelAndUnusualDeath burnt alive]].
** The parents of the babies Maya sacrificed to become the first vampire probably went through this.
** In ''The Chosen'', Rashel kills a vampire whose been specifically targeting young children. Because he's a vampire, no one will ever find out what really happened to the missing children - the only comfort is that other kids will be safe.
** Jez's parents had to beg for their four year old daughter's life to be spared when vampires came to execute them for breaking Night World law.
