After four rip-roaring dark fantasy adventures featuring protagonists Magiere and Leesil -- a sexy, half-dead vampire hunter and a handsome half-breed elf -- Barb and J. C. Hendee's Noble Dead saga (Dhampir, Thief of Lives, et al.) reaches a pivotal point with this fifth installment.
On a desperate quest to free Leesil's mother from imprisonment in the treacherous Elven Territories, Leesil and Magiere -- accompanied by Wynn, a young female sage, and Chap, a dog who was born with an ancient Fay spirit inhabiting its body -- nearly die in their trek across the Broken Range in the dead of winter. But the enigmatic Chap finds a way through the mountains, and the unlikely quartet enter the magical Elven lands...only to find themselves face-to-face with its volatile inhabitants -- and a truth so unimaginable that it will turn Magiere and Leesil's world upside down…
Fans of the Hendees' Noble Dead series who have been trying to understand the saga's many unexplained mysteries will be absolutely blown away by the bombshell plot twists revealed in Rebel Fay. With only one book (tentatively entitled Child of a Dead God) to go before the series concludes, the husband-and-wife writing duo has set the stage for what should be an explosive final volume. Fantasy fans who like their adventures done very rare -- fast and bloody -- should definitely check out this addictively readable saga, which seamlessly blends the vampire mythos with high fantasy.
