Dhampir by Barb HendeeI liked the remise of this book and I liked the first few chapters until I realized it was all a scam I kept waiting for something supernatural to happen with Magiere and Leesil Their adventures are rather boring but they turned out to be interesting characters nonethelessThe move to respectibility was a good start but the new town had real vampires and the town expected the vampire hunter to take care of the Zeugen aus der Todeszone problem and so did I Somewhere aroundage 200 the action heated up and Magiere finally finally started to act like a hunter I understand that this is the first book in the series and must build the world and characters so I ll try book two and hope it has action Ahhhh A little bit conflicted about this one Overall I liked it enough to want to read the seuelsWhat I liked and didn t likeThe Plot Basically it s a book about one fake vampire hunter one fake vampire and one magic dog who end up hunting vampires for real Although the lot is rather redictable there were uite a few surprises for me I really liked the fact that the main characters start up as crooks cheating villagers out of their money by The Transformation of Intergovernmental Satellite Organisations: Policy and Legal Perspectives pretending to vanuish imaginary vampires only to save up and legally open their own tavern somewhereeaceful and uiet It was uite refreshing to see characters who want to settle down and lead a normal and less eventful life Second I really enjoyed the The Marine's E-Mail Order Bride presence of elves in the story Books that include different cultures and races are my favorite If you are afraid of getting a Dungeons and Dragons copycats no worries It was the first time ever that I cared eually about the villains too We do get to experience some of the story from theiroint of view and I honestly didn t know who to root for even in the end A really Dervishes and Islam in Bosnia: Sufi Dimensions to the Formation of Bosnian Muslim Society pleasant surprise and excellent characterization Our main heroine is a Dhampir half human half vampire That was actually the one thing that turned me off when I was considering whether to read the book a couple of years ago I ve read enough Paranormal Fantasies with Dhampirs to be repelled for life So once again I wasleasantly surprised not to find any Mary Sues on sight The ending The final battle was definitely something you don t see in many fantasy books view spoiler I loved the fact that our heroes decided to seek help from I loved the fact that our heroes decided to seek help from villagers and repare a trap for the vampires instead of charging on by themselves again hide spoiler This was a regular fantasy story that read a lot like an UF in terms of feel and style I liked the weird mixing of genres and felt it really worked for this story Magiere is a travelling vampire hunter She is in high demand with the local villages as she has a fearsome reputation of always getting the job done A job that a fearsome reputation of always getting the job done A job that made a lot easier by the fact that she is actually a con artist and the vampire she rids the villages of is her business artner and travelling companion Leesil Things go awry for the duo when their last job before retiring to run a tavern sees them run into an actual vampireIt was a fun story Neither Magiere or her half elf companion Leesil believed in vampires so they took a bit of time to realize they had run up against a nest of true vampires and before they knew it they were being dragged into a war with a group of them despite the fact that they were trying to retire to the uiet life The fantasy world was a fun were trying to retire to the uiet life The fantasy world was a fun It was a fairly average medieval European setting but mixed in a bunch of fantasy creatures like elves vampires ghosts and even a magic dog Magiere and Leesil were not your average fantasy heroes as they started out as con artists and then after that mostly just wanted to live in A New Kind of Public: Community, Solidarity, and Political Economy in New Deal Cinema, 1935-1948 peace but I did eventually warm to the duo and found them easy to root for We got hints in this opening book that both characters had interesting and mysterious backgrounds that they had not even gotten around to sharing with each other The bigositive for this. She hunts the realm's most dangerous game Her fees are exorbitant but she's worth every coin she receives Or is she Magiere has earned a reputation as the most formidable vampire slayer in the land Villagers far and wide welcome her with both awe and disdain grateful to her for ridding their towns of the undead menace but fi. Book was the fact THAT WE ALSO GOT POV S we also got POV s the vampires I felt that added real depth to the story as the group of vampires all had their own distinct ersonalities and had dreams motivations and backstories of their own It was so successful a Eumenes of Cardia: A Greek Among Macedonians ploy that I actually found myself sympathizing with the vampires at times in the various battles It really makes a big difference to any story when the reader is invested in the characters from both sides of a conflict That is so much satisfying that just a simple monster suashing tale The writing felt weirdly stilted but that did not seem to hurt the tale any as I got sucked into the story and found this aretty compelling read This was actually a reread for me as I read this way back in the day but the truth is it was a lot like a first read as it had been so long that I did not remember a thing about the story outside of the fact that Magiere was a dhampir I had some vague memories of what this series was in general and what its strengths and weaknesses are and it seems my memories were spot on in that regard All in all I was uite happy with this Not the best fantasy I ve ever come across but engaging and very readable and I ll definitely be The Battle of Borodino: Napoleon Against Kutuzov pressing onto the next book in the series to see what else Magiere and Leesil get up to on their adventures It is worth noting that if this was an actual UF I d rate it as one of my favourites Rating 4 stars Audio Note I felt like Tanya Eby did a great job with the audio Aretty good new series A bit of a downer Sword sorcery setting with a half vamp as a hero Kind of an interesting world Certainly not a must read but if you come across a copy you won t be wasting your time The other books in the series are even a little better Her writing improves I think Leesil and Magiere have a Religion in the Ancient Greek City pretty good con game going on heretends to be a vampire she The Polemical Works of Al Al- Abar pretends to slay him and thus they bilk innocent villagers out of their hard earned cash But Magiere has tired of this life and when she decides to buy an inn and retire a mysterious old man shows up insisting that she is a dhampir or half vampire half human and theerfect vampire hunter Thus begins one of the interesting vampire series I have read lately Barb and JC Hendee s The Noble Dead The Hendees have created an imaginary world with a re modern Eastern European feel which only grows complex as the series goes on Even impressive than their world building however is the care with which they have crafted their characters who have realistic strengths and flaws and whose backstories are gradually revealed throughout the series The vampires though clearly villains are not two dimensional caricatures and even Chap the dog has a backstory of his own There s lenty of action Chap the dog has a backstory of his own There s lenty of action which doesn t get in the way of character development and the first book does a nice job of balancing tied up loose ends with the hint of things to come I recommend this book and this whole series for those looking for a new take on imaginary world fantasy or a different kind of vampire tale Before I launch into my review I just gotta ask why do eople always have to make stew in fantasy novels How about goulash Pasta Chicken and dumplings Half elves cannot live on stew alone Also stew is not travel food It s called stew because it has to STEW for a few hours before you eat it No one would say Gee we ve been walking all damn day let s wait a few hours for our stew to simmer before we can eat Brief recapMagiere which I couldn t figure out how to La Partera: Story of a Midwife pronounce so I started calling her Maggie in my head and Leesil I knew a girl in high school named Leisel and it was hard to disassociate the two at first I kept imagining this half elflaying trumpet in advanced jazz band run a scam killing vampires for remote villages Maggie is the hunter and Leesil lays the vampire she kills him absconds with the village s money and they scram Nding themselves made oorer for their salvation Magiere has always known she's dealing with simple folk who only wish to have their superstitions silenced and she's never had a roblem with exploiting them for rofit Now tired of the game Magiere and her artner the half elf Leesil are ready to hang up their weapons and set. ,
