Sister of the Dead - Book 3 of the Saga of the Noble Dead
by Barb Hendee and J.C. Hendee
Magiere is a dhampir - half human, half vampire - sired for the purpose of slaying the undead. Or was she bred to be something else entirely? Outside the village of Chemestuk, where she was born and raised, stands her father's keep. Within its walls, she hopes to discover the secrets of her past and figure out why a vampire would wish to breed a creature capable of slaughtering his own kind ...But there are those who don't want Magiere to learn the truth - and when her half-elf partner, Leesil, makes a startling discovery in the keep, he can understand why. Before Leesil can reveal the truth to Magiere, they must vanquish a creature of unimaginable and unlimited power who has damned a small village of people with a horrifying curse.
The Noble Dead saga continues as Magiere and Leesil embark on a quest to uncover the secrets of their mysterious origins - and those responsible for orchestrating the events that brought them together. Along the way they discover secrets thought hidden forever.
Again, a thoroughly enjoyable read. Now I need to get my hands on the next book.
