"Thief Of Lives" is the second novel in the Nobel Dead series by Barb and J. C. Hendee. Following on from "Dhampir", we again hook up with Magiere, Leesil, Chap et al. as once more, their hope of a more peaceful existence is shattered by the rumors of vampiric activity in a neighboring township. Despite Magiere's reluctance to leave behind the new life she and the others have begun, they journey to the town of Bela to hunt down those responsible for the town's recent spate of murders.
As the second book in a series of books, "Thief Of Lives" does manage to stand alone on its own merits, but only just. It would be highly recommended to pick up a copy of "Dhampir" first as many of the characters from that novel reappear here and the story is very definitely a 'continuation' rather than a 'further adventures of' kind of tale.
Indeed, where "Dhampir" can stand alone as a single story, albeit with a conclusion which promises more, "Thief Of Lives" is very definitely both a tieing up of loose ends from "Dhampir" and the set up for more to come in later novels where we really do find out a lot more about these complex characters.
I like these books as they offer something different to constant stream of vampire fiction out there. Here, we take a Tolkienesque fantasy world and mingle it with a vampire horror novel to produce something a little different from both the usual fantasy fare and the modern vampire fiction out there which often seems to be as much about sex and shopping as it does about vampires.
The characters are complex, increasingly so as the novels progress and I found the books both well written and easy to read. "Thief of Lives" is no exception, with expertly crafted action scenes and enough mystery and intrigue in both the plotting and the character development to keep you turning pages.
If fantasy fiction is your thing, then this series might be well worth checking out for a new angle, equally if vampire fiction is something you like and you'd like to try something a little different to the other popular novels out there in that genre, then again, these books are probably worth a shot.
