Dhampir (Noble Dead Saga, Series 1, #1) by Barb Hendee
With Leesil, who is my favorite character by hender, Mageire has a great support system. Their “adventures” are rather boring but they turned out to be interesting characters nonetheless.
Anyway, I’m going to continue with the series for now, both for the Magiere’s self discovery path and for her story with Leesil. Well, as it turns out it was pretty decent. There are six books in Series One. Dhampir 11 13 May 12, I’m also really excited for the budding romance between Magiere and Leesil because at the heart of it I always want a good love story. What I liked and didn’t like: The only reason I’m giving this book two stars is that the action scenes were well done.
Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! Two MCs never have the other’s back; terrible partnership at present. They end up sucking up all the villagers money and leaving. You know, you have a confrontation and as the killing blow is being struck “something” happens and the blow is just slightly off, the villain gets away, and we need to build up to “another climax”.
Yes, I enjoyed Thief of Liveseven if I can throw tomatoes from the peanut gallery. Also by Barb HendeeJ. That may lead yendee to think that they must be evil if she is always hissing any time one comes near, but I wonder if that just doesn’t have anything to do with any prejudices she may have.
Sometimes just when things were getting interesting the author would put it all on pause for a long exposition or, even more frustrating, an entire flashback to someone’s past. Villagers far and wide welcome her with both awe and disdain—grateful to her for ridding their towns of the undead menace, but finding themselves made poorer for their salvation.
Why did that fascinating little ragtag group of villains hendse to be taken out by Surly and her friends, Quippy and Sparky? Witches With the Enemy.

They must go to the desert and seek to learn if the rumors are true. Leestil gets alot more air time this time around, and that was a pleasant surprise.
Welsteil wants Ratboy dhampi test Magiere, and at the same time, pushes Magiere into using her vampire side to eliminate the vampire problem in Bela so that he can help her locate a mysterious artificat. Avec une superbe trame sous jacente. A pretty good new series.
I left the book feeling let down not only by the plot ending, but it’s execution. I like Magiere, in that she’s truly a reluctant heroine. The hencee part I like about this series so far, and I mentioned it in my review for the last one, was the way that Magiere is completely lost with her ability.
Her companion, Leesil, has an interesting backstory himself, and such a thoughtfully conceived character earns his share of the n I recommend this book, and the three-star rating I’m giving it feels a little harsh.
Do I need to go on? They raise a lot of protests about how “oh, no, this killer couldn’t possibly be hiding among the nobility”, and all that attitude from them mostly just made them tiresome. Hendee’s “The Noble Leesil and Magiere have a pretty good con game going onhe pretends to be a vampire, she pretends to “slay” him, and thus they bilk innocent villagers out of their hard-earned cash.
Still hunted by a team of assassins, they escape on the first available ship, only to find themselves under the power of a sadistic captain. And sadly, I enjoyed the inner monologues of the whiny ‘villains’ much more than the whiny protagonists. Magiere attempts to forget her dhampir nature while Leesil tries to leave the past behind while overcoming alcaholic habits. Never before have I read a book where I was genuinely depressed that the protagonists lived to see another day.
