I’m not much of vampire novel lover. But I love Barb Hendee’s work. She is a great writer. But of all of the novels I have read from her, this was my least favorite. I have to admit I really had a hard time getting into this novel. I think mainly because of the subject matter, sorry not really a fan of Vampires. But her style of writing is so good that she lured me in.
Literally at the end wanting more. Barb Hendee’s excellence knows no bounds she hooked, line, and sunk me. What more can you ask for from a great writer. She really is that good.
This is an author worth checking out. For Eleisha life as a vampire has always been perplexing. She was made by a British lordling to care for William, who was turned in advanced senility and is now condemned to an eternity as a vampire with Alzheimer’s.
She and William are bundled of to America with little or no explanation, and only the good fortune of coming under the wing of Edward, another vampire enables them to survive.
And then time passes Blood Memories opens years later, when Edward, worn down by countless years of darkness, commits suicide. Suddenly Eleisha and William are cut loose again, and the spectacular death of Edward has drawn unwelcome attention. They are being hunted by humans, and wherever they flee, death follows. And in England, Julian, Eleisha’s fearsome sire, becomes aware that all is not as it should be.
What makes this story is Eleisha’s progress. Starting out as a vampire whose greatest power is the ability to appear helpless, she gradually comes into her own. In many ways, Barb Hendee cuts Eleisha free from the many ties that bind her, as she confronts each problem and learns from it. Blood Memories isn’t a horror story; it is a vampire coming-of-age tale, if you can imagine such a thing.
As such, there is as much focus on the personalities of the characters as there is on the action of the story. As she does in the story itself, Eleisha at first attracts only sympathy from the reader. But gradually, as she develops, one becomes aware of her charm. Hendee, is the co-author of several other, more mainstream, vampire tales, starring a young dhampir.
She has a knack for quickly building a character’s presence, and so each of the cast stay in mind more than one would expect from a ‘vampire tale. Coming from a small, independent publisher, and cursed with a rather lurid cover, this book exceeded my expectations in every way. If you are looking for a vampire story with more than one unusual twist, try this one out.
This is the first in a series so a lot of time was spent outlining the rules for these vampires and introducing the reader to the cast of characters. I would have given the book more stars but the Kindle version was very poorly presented – sections of sentences were repeated causing me to go back several times to figure out what was going on. Editing was amateur – don’t know if this was the case in the hard copy or not.
I have a lot of Kindle freebies and understand that I am likely to get what I pay for, but I paid more for this Kindle version than I would have for the hard copy and am not happy with the quality. I have continued to read the series though and have completed 3 of 5 of the books that make up the series. I started with ‘Dhampir’ and then had to get anything else Barb Hendee wrote.
Im only sorry that there are only two books so far. A bit different then your average vampire tale. These are neither the good vampires, nor the naughty vampires. Perhaps the lost vampire might become a new genre. In Dhampire we play the human side, mostly. Or at least, mostly human.
But a glimpse of the undead there reveals a great variation in vampires and the sides are drawn not between good and evil but simply for survival. In this book we go full scale on the vampire side, through the eyes of vampires who are yet ignorant of themselves and what they are. While in some books one becomes somewhat emeshed with the characters, Barb Hendee has the ability to bring you totally codenpendent on them.
As with some blod, BH can use detail and description to bring the characters and their emotions alive without distracting the reader.
In this case I was not memoriess disapointed when the book ended, but actually rather annoyed. It’s only in the hope of more books that I can recommend these. See all 27 reviews.
