    Garage Sale SUPER Find!

    I happened upon "The Dampher" at a garage sale and paid an amount that I must say hid the true value of the book. From the moment I started reading I was hooked! I had to get to B&N in just a few days to purchase the next book in the series. I have over the last 6 months purchased all of the others and the only reason it took so long was that I had avoided all shopping. With each book I found myself becoming attached to the characters and LOVE Chap the majay-hi. This 6th installment of the series was worth the investment of time and money! Fans will love it but may be dissapointed because it is impossible to put down and reads too quickly! I wanted to put it away so that I could enjoy it for a longer period of time but just couldn't wait to get more. I hope the Hendees hurry with the next installment staring these characters because I miss them already! I have started the next series and hope it is as enjoyable. Thank You Barb & J.C. Hendee!!!!

    For readers who love vampire novels will

    Magiere the dhampire and Leesil the elf have finally left the elven territories to continue their search for an artifact hidden in a castle with six towers encased in ice in the mountains of the south. Wynn the sage, Chap the canine protector and two distrusting elves accompany them. Master Sage Domin Tilswith asked Magiere to find the relic in order to keep the magical object from the times of Forgotten History from falling into the evil hands of those like her Noble Dead (vampire) half-brother Welsteil.-------------- Welsteil believes the artifact will take away his overwhelming hunger for blood he raises a pack of loyal feral vampires to help him follow his adversary, his half-sister. When she retrieves the object, his squad will capture her and take possession of the object from her. Neither of the siblings is aware that a third party, the Most Aged Father, an Elven, plans to grab the artifact as he believes this is the only way to save his people from the increasing encroachment of the vile humans and their related evil species if war comes.--------------- Readers who love vampire novels will appreciate the full works of Barb and J.C. Hendee as they consistently provide some of the genre¿s best. Each novel adds to the Hendee mythos yet stands alone as the story lines are complex in terms of furthering the adventures of Magiere and Leesil, but are also a complete tale onto itself. The lead duo is courageous and caring as they battle two enemy groups in which treachery and double crossing from your own team is expected. Except for trusting one another and to a degree Chap and Wynn, Magiere and Leesil knows betrayal can come from within as much as from blood kin. The audience will be want to read this novel in one sitting as the triad converges on what looks like a fatal confrontation, but for whom.----------- Harriet Klausner

    Deadly Six history

    They first joined up when they were individual rouges. They chose Fireburn as their leader, and attacked cats as a rouge group with the name of the Deadly Six. Later, they decided to join a Clan. They still call themselves the Deadly Six, though.

    One of my favorites!

    This is the 6th book in the Noble Dead series by Barb and J.C. Hendee. I strongly recommend ALL of their books in this series and those in the 2nd series. I can't imagine anyone who enjoys sci-fi and vampires not liking these books. I did find this one a favorite. Do read it!

    One of the better books in this series

    I liked this one better than Sister of the Dead and Traitor to the Blood, both of which I thought were too slow with too little plot. Things definitely happen in this final (I think it's final) book in the Dhampir series. In fact, I found the plot just a tad too busy but that definitely better than when the plot's too thin. Also, I thought this book was somewhat too long but still worth the read. I'm looking forward to In Shade and Shadow, the beginning of the second series. I hope Wynn and Chap are in it!
    My biggest complaint about the Dhampier series is the lack of character development. Also, I'd have liked a bit more romance between Leesil and Magiere. They're soulmates but they spend a lot more time kicking butt than canoodling. Of course, if all I wanted was romance, I'd pick up a Barbara Cartland or Victoria Holt! But still, with everything these two go thru, they could have used a little more tenderness and togetherness as a couple.

    Awesome Ending to a GREAT SERIES!!!!!

    This was a great way to end the series. All the characters had closure and from a fan of the series from the beginning it was a great to see how it ended, I was not disappointed. The story was great in this book the castle and the crazy girl was a cool element. Loved it, though rebel fay is one of my favorites of the series this is the second best. This was the end of the first series. This led to the beginning of the second series Following wynn

    Best Series Ever

    I love these books they are amazing. The way the books are written makes you visualize it so well. when there is a fight scene you see it from marg's point of view then from chaps. the writing style is fantastic. Also you end up loving these characters. I loved the romance between marg and lee and wynn was great. chap was one of those character that always left you wondering, great in rebel fay. Over all i would recommend this to everyone who is into fantasy because they really are the best books.

    Another solid book in the Noble Undead series

    It was good to see this series finally reaching its conclusion. It was exciting to witness the culmination of all of Magiere's dreams about a dark castle in a frozen land. It was also good to see the final battle between Magiere and Welstiel and what happens when Chane meets Wynn again.

    wow

    It was a very good book but the whole series is kinda being drawn out a little bit. How many books are we up to now? 6? and now there has to be at least one or two more judging by the way it ended. Don't get me wrong, I loved the book its just maybe they should combine a few books when they are writing instead of splitting it up into 6 short pieces.
