Publisher's Summary

She hunts the realm's most dangerous game. Her fees are exorbitant. She's worth every coin she receives. Or is she?
Magiere has earned a reputation as the most formidable vampire slayer in the land. Villagers far and wide welcome her with both awe and disdain - grateful to her for ridding their towns of the undead menace, but finding themselves made poorer for their salvation. Magiere knows she's dealing with simple folk, who only wish to have their superstitions silenced, and sees nothing wrong with exploiting them for profit.
Now, tired of the game, Magiere and her partner the half-elf Leesil, are ready to hang up their weapons and settle down in a place they can finally call home. But their newfound peace will not last - for Magiere has come to the attention of a trio of powerful and dangerous vampires who know her true identity - and fear the birthright that flows through her veins. And they will stop at nothing to keep Magiere from fulfilling her destiny.

Great story, great narrator.

If you could sum up Dhampir in three words, what would they be?

Action, Mystery, Spark


What was one of the most memorable moments of Dhampir?

The whole book was memorable


What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

She remained consistent in the pronunciation of character names and town names, she didn't try to do accents she couldn't carry off, and it was appropriate, consistent speed.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I only allowed myself to listen while working out. I worked out a lot so I could hear the whole story.


Any additional comments?

I saw someone called the book depressing, but I did not find it so. It was along the lines of Terry Goodkind in terms of some people die, people have hard lives, the heroes quest continues, but, unlike Goodkind who includes endless hours of social colloquy with a story line here and there, this author stuck to the story and only the story, developing mysteries within mysteries and had me cheering for the heroes -- and the town.

My Girlfriend is going to kill me...

My girlfriend wants me to read this series so bad because it's one of her favorites... But the narrator is so robotic that it forces me out of the story.

Her sing song voice and tempo is formulaic and very distracting. She sounds like she's reading a sports radio program from the 1950's. I just can't get into a book if the reader is bad. I've started this book 3 times and have gotten about as far each time before I just can't listen to it anymore.

I'm sure the story is a great one... I just can't listen too it...
