Reviews

The Hendees' bestselling Noble Dead series (Sister of the Dead, etc.) makes the leap from mass market to hardcover with this winning fourth novel to feature vampire hunter Magiere, who's half-vampire herself, and her half-elf partner, Leesil. Raised in the Warlands, Leesil must return there to investigate the fate of the parents he betrayed and to seek redemption for his sins as an enslaved assassin for the evil Lord Darmouth. Accompanying Magiere and Leesil are two appealing supporting characters: Wynn, an idealistic elf, and the dog Chap, who's actually a fay in canine clothing. In Venj?tz, Darmouth's city, Leesil goes to his father's only confidant, the feline-loving innkeeper Byrd, but wonders if he can trust the man, as Byrd is also an informant for Darmouth. Meanwhile, none other than Lord Darmouth himself calls upon Magiere's vampire-killing skills. Fans of the series are sure to be pleased, while the novel stands well enough on its own to attract new readers. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

The son of an elven mother and a human father, Leesil is raised as a slave and trained to be an assassin and spy for his master, Lord Darmouth. Unwilling to kill on command, Leesil escapes, only to return with his beloved companion, the dhampir (half-vampire) Magiere, to discover the fate of the parents he left behind. In their hardcover debut and the fourth title of their "Noble Dead" saga, the Hendees (Sister of the Dead; Dhampir) have crafted a unique tale of vampires and half-vampire undead hunters set against a dark fantasy world ruled by tyrants. The personal conflicts of the heroes mirror the larger struggles in their world and provide a solid foundation for this tale of love and loyalty in a world of betrayal. A good choice for most fantasy collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

This is one of those books for which the term dark fantasy was definitely intended. ("Chronicle") ...fabulous entertainment wrought with mystery, adventure, and sharp-toothed wit. (Mark Anthony, author of "The Last Rune" series)
