        See barbhendee Like most writers, I ve worked at many jobs in my life, including teaching pre school until I completed my master s degree in Composition Theory Between 1993 and 2006, I taught college English while writing fiction on the side, some independently and some with my husband and life long partner J.C.Over the years, we ve lived in Washington State, Idaho, Colorado, and now moved just south of Portland, Oregon I love the Northwest, and it s a great place to write.We have a lovely and talented daughter, Jaclyn, who lives in Houston, Texas along with our wonderful and talented son in law, Paul.J.C and I sold Dhampir in 2001, which changed our lives considerably It was published in January 2003, and we ve published a book in the Noble Dead Saga every year since In May of 2006, we were both able to quit our teaching jobs and move into full time writing.Recently, I ve begun writing romance suspense novels, beginning with Alone with a Soldier I am so glad my books have found an audience because I love to write fiction than anything else in the world and I m not really good at anything else.

    1. When I started Sister of the Dead I was eager to pick up where we left Leesil and Magiere and their newly admitted feelings for each other. Unfortunately there was little romance between the two. They seemed like an old married couple. And they were grumpy a lot. Then there was also the addition of another character that joined them on their travels. I wasn't crazy about the idea. Three is usually a crowd and Wynn seemed rather annoying. I did still want to find out more about who Magiere was an [...]


    2. Moving along in the tale of Magiere the dhampir, her companion and now lover Leesil the half-elf, their fay-in-flesh-form Chap and now the addition of Wynn the scholar. In this book they seek to find out about Magiere's history. I really like how this overall story is developed book by book, more and more details emerging as we progress through each one.Magiere's one-track mind (vampires/other monsters = to be killed, no matter the circumstances surrounding their "making", or the life they might [...]


    3. This is book 3 out of 6, from the Noble Dead series featuring Magiere, Leesil and Chap. The title of this book is truly misleading; until you get to the next to last chapter of the book. This is not a stand-alone book, and if you pick it up before reading the previous two, you will be totally lost in space.This book plotted along throughout the book, with so many different angles it makes your head spin. First there's Magiere, the half-human, half-vampire Dhampir who is trying to figure out the [...]


    4. They still suck at fighting the undead. Never do they win or even survive without luck or rescue.Mag and Lees are an awful couple and a worse team. Always lying to each other, arguing in public, distracting each other in fights.Mag remains everyone's pawn. Authors are incapable or unwilling of producing a satisfying climax. Dramatic model of story = fail, fail, fail, fail, underwhelming partial success.





    5. Now I know that these guys can't write endings. That's the third book in a row, where they have failed to deliver a climactic, awe inspiring ending. In the end, it lets the book down and leaves me/the reader feeling dejected and distinctly meh. However, the majority of the plot was really well done and was probably worthy of a four stars. But, overall, this was a frustrating Three Stars. Plot: Three StarsThis plot line was great and poor. The whole book was generally brilliant, even if it lacked [...]



    6. I had a love/hate relationship with the first two Nobel Dead novels; book three tips the balance a little toward hate. In Dhampir and Thief of Lives, the rough beginnings gave way to fast-paced climaxes that kept me turning pages, and the interaction between Magiere and Leesil made up for the sometimes weak characterization and the often weak worldbuilding. Unfortunately, Sister of the Dead just isn't as good as its predecessors.Magiere's and Leesil's relationship felt flat, and while Wynn has g [...]


    7. Sister of the DeadBarb and J.C. Hendee2005Fiction Magiere, Leesil, Chap, and a sage named Wynn are on a hunt to find out about Leesil's and Magiere's pasts. The majority of the book takes place in Droevinka, a continent. They encounter a small village that is under a curse. A powerful sorcerer named Vordana has been sucking out the life of this small village. Every tree was bear and every human and animal and simply skin and bones. Magiere and Leesil fought with this evil creature with the help [...]


    8. Now that I finished it, I'm a little torn.Cons: The flashback technique, not really working for me. Didn't like how it was handled in the first book, didn't like it here.The heroine is an annoying whiny ungrateful brat, more often than not, although she's growing on me.The sage Wynn in this book is even worse! Good grief she's unlikeable. Even if I do continue to read the series, I won't be reading her offshoot.I just can't help thinking each of these books would be better if 50-100 pages were k [...]


    9. SISTER OF THE DEAD is a great contribution to the Noble Dead series. I think it's really a spotlight for development on the characters and their background. The authors know how to throw twists in the plot to make a reader think and re-think certain aspects of the story. I appreciated the efforts they made and had a blast sifting "discovering" things along with the characters themselves. Old mysterious are resolved while new ones are being created.I was slightly disappointed when I opened SISTER [...]


    10. Book Review: 2 Treasure BoxesMargiere, a dhampir; Leesil, a half-elf; Wynn, a young scholar and Chap, a fay-creature in the form of an intelligent dog continue their adventures, this time tracking down Margiere's past. And a very interesting past it is, the story reveals how Margiere came to be and hints at why she was created. Barb and J. C. Hendee have written two series in the Saga of the Noble Dead. Sister of the Dead is the third book in the first series. There are six books in Series One. [...]


    11. Sister of the Dead begins the morning after Thief of Lives ends. This is a series that absolutely must be read in order or it will make no sense. I am so glad that I am reading the books now instead of when they first came out because a waiting a year between books would have ruined the flow of the story for me.As I get deeper into this series, I am enjoying it even more. The characters are all complex. They all have their own secrets and moral codes. Each has a past that they would rather forge [...]


    12. Sister of the Dead is the third book in the Noble Dead series.World building: There was quite a bit more world building this time around. Not only do we learn more about the lands and counties of this world, but we learn that we have been here before (at least for those who have read Barb Hendee’s Mist-Torn Witches series that appears to be set in the same world). We also learn more on the Noble dead, magic, and the fey.Storyline – I like the arc of this book. Unlike most traveling books whi [...]


    13. Leesil is desperate to find out if his mother, Nein'a, is alive and really held prisoner in the Elven lands. However, his quest is put on hold as Magiere, Leesil, Chap and Wynn continue their journey as they make their way to Droevinka and to Magiere's home town in a bid to learn more about her past. Is Aunt Bieja still there? Who was her father? What really happened to her mother Magelia? How does Welstiel fit into everything? As usual on adventures, the heroes always find more than they bargai [...]


    14. This book 3 of the Noble Dead series follows Magiere & Leesil, along with Wynn & Chap on the voyage to find information about Magiere's past and who her father was. Interesting. More mystique of this Noble Dead world is revealed. Leesil, Chap and Chane are still the most likeable characters, whereas the two women: Magiere & Wynn are at times difficult. We learn more about Magiere and why she is the way she is. This understanding and her new expression of love for Leesil make her more [...]


    15. Hmm this installment in "The Noble Dead" series was not my favorite. Why? Well, in the journey of every hero/heroine there is a low point, a nadir, that seems so awful that the character must either be crushed by the loss or rise as a phoenix from his/her ashes. Though I have not yet read the other books in the series it had better be the nadir (the bottom of the bottom) for the story. And though I certainly want to feel a sense of reality in my books, I really loathe it when the crushing loss o [...]


    16. I really wanted to like this book, and all of this series, more than I did. The stories are good, not spectacularly original but still entertaining in a traditional Dracula-vampire kind of way.But the writingh. Wordsmithing is definitely not their strong point. I'd hoped after writing a book or two they'd have learned a few things about stringing words together, to avoid unnecessary descriptions and head-hopping and rambling. But this one seems even worse. The clunkiness of the prose kept me fro [...]


    17. Sister of the Dead is a notable improvement over the preceding two books in the Noble Dead series. While the earlier books did a good job of establishing intriguing characters in Magiere and Leesil, they tended to be a bit repetitive and inconsistently paced.Here, the character development that came before pays off. In Sister of the Dead we learn quite a bit about Magiere and the mysterious Welsteil, and yes, about Chap as well. Leesil plays an integral part in this book, but one senses that the [...]


    18. Meh. Not a great book. The action is decent, the characters interesting, but the writing needs work.Hendee lapses into the same problems that she had in the first book, where she tells rather than shows a lot of the backstory, and has flashbacks at some inappropriate times that mess with the story's flow.It's an easy read, but not a fast one (because of the flashback mess). If you've gotten far enough in the series to get to this book, and need another cheesy vampire-hunter novel to read, keep g [...]


    19. Sister of the Dead continues Magiere's journey towards an, as of yet, unknown purpose. This book is a great addition to the series as we are able to learn a bit more about what a Dhampir is and how she came to be. I thoroughly enjoy the addition of Wynn and Chane in this book. Though I'm not overly thrilled about a certain event that I shall not name as to not spoil the book. It is interesting to me that people complain about the book not offering conclusive resolutions's book 3 in a series of 6 [...]


    20. This series keeps getting better and better. I loved learning about Magiere's past even though learning about it is worse than the characters and I thought. I thought I knew who her father was I was wrong. You find out not only who her father is but hiw she came to be. She meets someome who was there even. She is a strong character and doesn't wilt when anything gets thrown at her. She doesn't let that she is in a relationship with someone she loves stop her from what she wants and needs to do. [...]


    21. This one was really slow goings for me. Im honestly a pretty big fan of Magiere and the world she lives in but this one was really slow. I enjoyed parts of the beginning, like them finding the fake wall in the castle and the tomb behind it. But it felt very forced at times. I feel like Leesil and Magiere bickered a lot when they had just finally told each other how they felt in the last book. Wynn is probably the most obnoxious character Ive ever read in a series. I had really high hopes because [...]


    22. UghI was interested in following the story line in order to find out what happens but the reasoning for some of the characters behavior doesn't even sound logical. All the flashbacks and repeating what happened in the previous books are too much. Plus, I absolutely loathe Wynn's character. No matter what I cannot get myself to like her and more and more the main characters are starting to bother me as well. I can't sympathize or empathize if how they behave doesn't make sense to their own charac [...]


    23. About half-way through this book I thought I was going to quit reading the series after finishing this third volume. At that point, I was losing interest in the story and it felt as though the authors were running out of ideas to make the story fresh and original. Now that I've finished the book, however, I think I will continue with the series. The characters are likable and I am intrigued enough with what will happen in the next part of the story that I want to read the next book.I'm also inte [...]


    24. This book follows Leesil and Magiere on their quest to find their respective histories. Magiere discovers her father and the truth about her conception, while coming to the realization that Welstiel is her brother. We get to see the progression of Leesil and Magiere's relationship as well as discovering that Magiere's dark side is possible to control.The next book should deal more with Leesil's search for his mother. All the while, Chap is attempting to protect the group from their unknown and u [...]


    25. I really like the ending of this book. Sometimes these storys get confusing but I eventually figure them out and this one wasn't bad but of course I still have questions and I dont always agree with Magerie's belief that all Noble Dead are bad and evil. It's kind of ironic how when they explain to someone what a Noble dead is that they say they are the highest of the undead but they can learn and change just like someone living but apparently they can't go from being a bad guy to a somewhat good [...]


    26. Book three of the Noble Dead series, this book helps to build upon that which has already begun. At times the book can be a tad frustrating but there is some really good content in this book which enables it to make you want to keep reading the series. Of course, giving only part of the whole story, leaving plenty of things to explore and learn about is the key to that occuring. Don't expect this to end in a great spot, but instead expect to keep reading in the 4th book and beyond.Not so much ba [...]
