DHAMPIR HENDEE PDF

Re-Reading Fantasy This review will be seen by some as incomplete; I was unable to finish the read after [re]trying multiple times over the last thirty days. I will not try again later, regardless that this contemporary work of fantasy is beloved by many throughout the world. The main character of Kvothe as a boy suffered great loss and downfall. Some might say he then struggled to recover; while I agree in part, he also wallowed in an artificially contrived fashion too long that did not fit the character.

Shelves: fantasy 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 is 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 partner and travelling companion Leesil!

Things This was a regular fantasy story that read a lot like an UF in terms of feel and style. Things go awry for the duo when their last job, before retiring to run a tavern, sees them run into an actual vampire. It 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 quiet life.

The fantasy world was a fun one. 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 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. I felt that added real depth to the story as the group of vampires all had their own distinct personalities and had dreams, motivations, and backstories of their own.

It was so successful a 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 more satisfying that just a simple monster squashing 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 a pretty 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 quite happy with this. Rating: 4 stars.

Saga of the Noble Dead

In Series 1, Book 1, S1B2: Dhampir, Magiere is unaware of her inner nature, the discovery of which leads the trio into a tangled path that uncovers hints of the Forgotten History and of what may be coming by the end of Series 1. Eventually the inevitable happens; they cross paths with genuine vampires, one form of the Noble Dead or highest form[s] of the undead. These charlatans are plunged unwillingly into a dark reality of true undead and into their own dark fates as well as other personal secrets they kept hidden even from each other. The answers are bigger than any of them wish to acknowledge, aside from a wandering nobleman named Welstiel Massing who shadows their movements and is always too eager to goad Magiere out of hiding and force her onward. This series also introduces readers to the second spiritual form of the three major forms of Noble Dead, the first being the vampire physical form as encountered previously. Wynn has returned to her guild branch, escorted to the city limits by Magiere, Leesil, and Chap.
