Noble Dead

I just read a fun and interesting book last week: Dhampir by Barb and J.C. Hendee. You can check it out at their website Nobledead.com.

Essentially, the book is a cross between a High Fantasy (like a Lord of the Rings or Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series) and a vampire-based Horror (like Anne Rice, I guess would be the best approximation). Unlike Jordan's series, this one appears to be written by people who understand the craft and don't just put down words to fill a page...see the Amazon reviews for Jordan's Crossroads of Twilight if you want to know what I mean.

The only thing I didn't like about it is the fact that it is part of a series! And a currently-being-written one at that...which means we have to keep waiting for the next book (book 2 is out, book 3 is coming out in January 2005).
