Dhampiri. What the heck does that mean? This was the question in the back of my mind before purchasing this novel, but after just having read, and very much enjoying The Citizens written by this same talented author, I purchased Dhampiri. I knew if I only enjoyed it half as much as I did The Citizens, then I got my money's worth. Not surprising to me, I enjoyed this book every bit as much as I did her first book.

I would like to say, up until now I had no interest at all in anything that had to do with the Vampire craze. I knew this book had a lot to do with them from reading the editorial review, but the short review sounded like it would be an interesting story, and I was curious how the author would handle an entire novel about the Vampire subject. Plus, I wanted the book to enlighten me on the meaning of the title without researching the subject myself, as I normally would have done.

The book starts out in 1872 with 22-year-old Colleen Patrick. She and her husband, Ronin, a young immigrant couple happily living a nice quiet life on a little farm in America they built themselves. I took a liking to Colleen from the very beginning. The actions start right away when her trip to town changed her life completely. She was turned into a Vampire and her emotions and actions when she realized what was done to her, I thought, were very well-written and believable.

The story spans 150 years or so, since Vampires are immortal, and, without giving any of the story away, the book just keeps getting more and more exciting.

I liked how the book started, but in the middle it kinda goes off. At first it is about the main character then it is more like the main character telling a story that does not fit in with the beginning. I gave this 2 stars instead of one because the beginning was wonderful and then this just got confusing.

I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.

I found this to be an enthralling read. It show's another side to vampire's that some would think impossible to contemplate but the author makes this work to her advantage. It is full of turn's that you don't see coming til they happen. I hope that there will be a second book as would like to know what becomes of Ancira. A must read for any Vampire fan x

I love stories about vampires, so downloaded this book. I really enjoyed it!

Colleen Patrick is a very likable character. She had immigrated to America with her husband, Ronin, from Ireland in 1870 and had settled in Lexington, Kentucky. In the autumn of 1872, her life takes a dramatic turn when she meets the Deussen's. Her life will never be the same again.

This is a book I have been wanting to read for a while. I have read other books by this author, so I was excited to begin this one.
I started to read this book and was quickly drawn into the tale. The story spans 120 years and finishes in 1992. There are several points of view, but the story is mostly told through the eyes of Colleen. I was a little confused as to the motives of the Duessen's, especially Anca and Dorian, and why they would pick Colleen to be one of the family. There did not seem to be a sexual element to this choice, but rather a servile one. But, I did wonder if Anca had feelings for Colleen because of something Dorian said. However, this was not explored by the author.

The story is certainly unique with regards to vampire life. The characters were quite interesting, but I would have loved to have seen more interaction within the family unit. Large segments of Colleen's life seemed to have been skipped over, so on occasion I felt a bit lost. But, as soon as the Valkyries were introduced, things got even more interesting. I liked Pandora. She seemed level headed and logical for a Valkyrie. They have been at war with the vampires for a long time, and have been slowly recovering from the last battle 200 years previously. The Valkyrie queen, known as "Mother", is one ticked off lady, with a grudge against the vampires. In my opinion, her need for revenge made her deranged.

I was given this book in return for an honest review. The story spans from 1872 when Colleen is turned into a vampire against her will through 1992. She lives in a maginificent cave with the vampires that turned her and their community. Over the years, she has become a nanny to the Dhampir children of her maker's husband. The children are carried and delivered by humans, then the vampire father steals the baby and it stays with the community. Their was a long ago war over the cave, which initially belonged to the Valkyrie. The vampires won, but the Valkyrie have never forgiven or forgot. They come and ambush Colleen and her family and kidnap them, along with their newest Dhampir child, Ancira. They are held by the Valkyrie and used as hostages to get their cave back. Colleen wants to escape but also has to worry about caring for and protecting baby Ancira. When the vampire community back at the cave kills the Valkyrie that are there to try to take the cave, most of Colleens vampire family are killed. She is able to escape with Ancira and is told by a vampire that she cannot go back to the cave due to a vampire trying to take over the rule of all the vamps there and it wouldn't be safe for her or the baby. She runs, but what to do with Ancira. The Valkyrie and the vampires will be looking for her. This was a cool take on vampires. New lore and new rules, I do enjoy a good change up. I like how the characters interact and sometimes seem almost human still and the way they adore the baby, Ancira, is the sweetest. Great story, loved the characters, and definately worth recommending. WaAr
