"Fine combination of fantasy, horror and romance"
Magiere the dhampire wonders why her father a vampire
would mate with a mortal and sire an offspring like her
who kill his undead species. She travels to the village of
her birth to seeking answers. Accompanying her is Leesil
the half-elf, Wynn the sage and Chap a Fay contained in
the body of a dog who doesn't want the dhampire to find
out about her origins. Following them is the Noble Dead
Welstiel, who doesn't want Magiere to learn the truth
about her birth either and Chame who cares deeply for Wynn.
In the village, the dhampire discovers five creatures, a
dwarf, a troll, and three other species lost to the mists
of time and memory who died so she could be born. They
travel to the capital city to find out if there are any
records that might explain her origins. Welstiel and Chame
are there before her and kill the man who could give her
access to her records. Although she learns nothing, a
noble dead tells her where to find a vampire who was there
for her creation; she doesn't know that when she find him,
he will never let Magiere escape him again.
SISTER OF THE DEAD is a combination of fantasy, horror and
romance that will appeal to readers of all three genres.
Magiere finds some of the answers she seeks but knows that
someone so powerful that even though he sleeps enacts his
will on many of the nobles and he wants her for reasons
unknown at this time. Readers will treasure Magiere's
tenacity and vulnerability just as they will care for the
loyal loving Leesit. Barb & J.C. Hendee have written a
spellbinding work that is creative and addicting.
