Review of Dhampir by Barb and J.C. Hendee

Authors:  Barb and J.C. Hendee.
Title:  Dhampir.
Publisher:  Roc Fantasy.
Copyright:  2003.
Pages:  376.
Price:  $6.99 (US).


Dhampir grew on me.  Its about two fantasy vampire hunters and their travails with a group of vampires.  The fantasy named vampire infested land seemed too over the top.  The mixture of English named characters didn't do much for me in a fantasy Slavic setting.

It was basically "Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Lord of the Rings."  The action kept me reading.  It took a while for things to get going.  When it did, things got interesting.  It should be noted, lots of characters die in this book.  These are not the sparkly vampires of Twilight.  They're old school fantasy vampires who want to defend their turf from the two vampire hunters, who just want to retire.  Recommended once things got going....
