Magiere the Dhampir was created by a shadowy, long-forgotten enemy of many names-an enemy who the elf Leesil was trained from childhood to kill. They were brought together by the Fay to forge an alliance that might have the power to stand against the forces of dark magics. But as Magiere and Leesil uncover the truth, they discover just how close the enemy has always been...

Rebel Fay continues half-elf Leesil's attempts to find his lost mother Nein'a. This time, the party travels to the elven lands where humans are forbidden. Magiere is detained, and Leesil must prove Magiere's not really an evil bad undead to a hostile and xenophobic elven leader.

I wanted to like Rebel Fay, since I adore Leesil and Magiere, but unfortunately, I felt this novel was bloated and so much time amongst the elves was spent bickering and feuding it was not entertaining. Plus, Leesil, my favorite character was acting really ridiculous about those 2 skulls. Obsession is not pretty, and quite frankly, I just don't see why Leesil would go so over the top about them. True, they are his relatives, but they aren't worth killing your lover and friends just to return them to elven lands. His obsession nearly got them killed and was selfish and out of character in my opinion. An assassin should be more pragmatic about death.

Then there are the elves. Can we get some pronounceable names? Only the shortened nicknames were even ones I could understand. But these elves were your typical xenophobic prats. Nothing new here. They hate humans, half-elves, and outsiders. Boring. Nothing new to see there, folks.

Every time Leesil and Magiere travel, they are jumped by either one or two elven women who hate them because Leesil killed one of their mates or they are under sway of their leader. This happens a few times and it got boring. Even when traveling in a group, the elves and party members squabble over slights and insults.

Wynn is her usual annoying self, this time leaving the village where she is being detained to run off alone in the forest with Chap, neccessitating a manhunt. We are treated to some long flashbacks from the elven leaders past, regarding his phobia of undead, and Magiere seems to have become totally utterly co-dependent on Leesil. She doesn't seem to think for herself, gets overprotective and easy to rile, and in short, she's losing her independent spirit. Leesil too, seems to no longer love Magiere because he ignores the fact she is hardly eating in favor of his overweening obsession to rescue his mom, and return the skulls.

Overall, this was my least favorite in the series. I just felt the `elven adventure' was not exotic enough, too much time was spent bickering, or chasing/protecting Wynn, the elves were disappointingly stereotypical, and Leesil was acting like a brat, and Magiere was acting like a co-dependent nitwit. In short, not their best novel. I hope the next one gets back on track.

Rebel Fay by Barb and J.C. Hendee, this is the fifth book in the Noble Dead series. The first book in this series is titled Dhampir. The series is based around a pair of vampire hunters, and then begins to delve more into their lives and where they come from. While the premise of the series seems straight forward, vampire hunter, the series is anything but. There are many new and interesting twists that the Hendee's fit in.

The plot of this book carries over right from book four, Traitor to the Blood. It followsLeesil's quest to find his mother. There are also many subplots within this novel as well. Subplots such as Chap and the Fay, political infighting within the elves, Magiere's background - where she came from and what her overall purpose is, and many other things as well. The Hendee's do a very good job of packing a lot of information into this novel. However, I found myself not really engaged by the plot in the first half of the book. It seemed slow and plodding, and at times, a little disjointed. I worried a little that, if not for all the time I have invested in this series, four books so far, that I may have not cared enough about the characters and plot to finish this book. However, past the mid point of the books things really picked up and became very interesting and rescued the book. This is certainly not a book to start with, if you are interested, even remotely, with this series.

The main characters from the prior books are all back, Magiere, Leesil, Chap, Wynn, Chane and Welstiel. There are also a whole slew of new characters as well. These new characters add depth to the story and make it feel like a larger story. There is a fair amount of character development, yet it seems that the vast majority of substantial character development happens in the last one hundred pages. While I appreciate the effort in developing the characters, when crammed into the last one hundred pages makes it feel rushed and the reader is not allowed to fully grasp the changed made. I would have liked to have seen more gradual character development instead of it being jammed together as it was. Aside from that the characters are well written and do contain a fair amount of depth. They are by no means flat, two dimensional characters.

As I mentioned above the first half of the book seemed slow to me as well as the jamming together of the character development. However, the prose of this book is solid and allows the reader to continue keep flipping pages. I was a little disappointed that there was not the humorous moment in this book that has been a staple in the past books. But, that is more of a personal thing.

Overall, this was a solid novel, but it seemed to be a little lacking compared with the previous installments. Fans of this series will no doubt enjoy this book. Readers considering this novel should really start at the beginning with Dhampir and work their way up. Things will just make much more sense that way. Fans of the fantasy genre will most likely find things to enjoy in this book as well. So, I can easily see myself recommend this novel, and series to many other readers.

Still a good escape novel. Quick and easy to read. Lots of action. However I'm noticing the characters' actions and interactions getting familiar and repetitive.

This is my favorite book in the series (so far.) Barb and J.C. Hendee do a marvelous job of crafting the Elven world and showing the contrasts in the Elven culture as Leesil, Magiere, Wynn and Chap search for Leesil's mother. I received deeper insights about each of the characters and learned a great deal more about Chap and his mission. One of the beautiful layers in this book is the interweaving of the majay-hi culture with the others. I was rapt by the spirit-touched dogs unique method of communicating.

As impressive as the imagery is, it wraps around a very solid plot full of wonderful turns. Just when I thought I knew where the path was leading, something jumped out of the forest. It was only then that I realized I had been catching glimpses of this new threat for some time.

And just so I don't forget where I am headed in the series, Welstiel and Chane traverse a parallel story line that echoes the overarching themes of trust and betrayal.

I got into the series to read about vampires and this book was sorely lacking in that area! There are plenty of Elvish plots and subplots, and a few good action sequences scattered about, but the horror element was missing. The main characters in this are Chap and Wynn, who becomes more and more interesting. Sadly, Magiere and Leesil don't have much to do in this book.

We are treated to many pages of reading how they walk and walk and walk through the Elven lands. And then we are treated to a few more pages of walking!

If I hadn't read the other books in the series I would have put this down, but because I am familiar with the story and characters I enjoyed it.
