Set during the late 1800s in the English Midlands, Dhampir is based on the gypsy legend that a male vampire could father children through a female mortal. The result produced a vampire hunter with all the extraordinary strength and abilities, but none of the vampire fathers weaknesses. Born without a father, and having lost his mother when he was five, Caine Griffith is now twenty-five.

This book is about killing vampires to protect humans from their evil. Each kill is costing Sam Harlan because he is absorbing something from the vampires. Knowing what that will lead to (hint - Read "Come What May"), he still chooses to hunt and kill them. I didn't think that Kevin Lee Swaim could match his first book, but he did! His writing is excellent, and "everything old is new again.

Dhampirs are the offspring of a Moroi vampire and a human. This Academy shows youthful Moroi vampires enchantment and youthful Dhampirs battle abilities and their obligations to watch their Moroi kinfolk. They find themselves able to go out in the day, can't work enchantment and don't eat blood - yet they are more grounded and speedier than both typical people and Moroi vampires. A life experience school that shows enchantment classes may sound a considerable measure like Hogwarts from the Harry Potter books yet there truly is no correlation.

In Balkans folklore, Dhampirs (sometimes spelled dhampyres, dhamphirs, or dhampyrs) are creatures that are the result of a union between a vampire and a human

In Balkans folklore, Dhampirs (sometimes spelled dhampyres, dhamphirs, or dhampyrs) are creatures that are the result of a union between a vampire and a human. This union was usually between male vampires and female humans, with stories of female vampires mating with male humans being rare. The word Dhampir possibly derives from the words dham, Albanian Gheg variant of dhëmb ( tooth ) + pir, participle of pi ( to drink ), literally meaning 'that who drinks through his/her teeth'.

Set during the late 1800s in the English Midlands, Dhampir is based on the gypsy legend that a male vampire could father children through a female mortal. The result produced a vampire hunter with all the extraordinary strength and abilities, but none of the vampire fathers weaknesses. Born without a father, and having lost his mother when he was five, Caine Griffith is now twenty-five. He is searching for clues to his life and unknown legacy, a legacy of terror, betrayal and revenge he never knew existed outside the safe confines of his home. During the reading of Caines mothers Last Will and Testament, a stack of diaries surfaces to turn his world upside down. He questions his very existence. Where did he come from? Who is his father? And what is the connection of all this to the mysterious stranger killing townspeople in the most brutal way possible? What will his mothers diaries tell him about his past, his legacy and the father he never knew? Will he survive to find the answers to these questions, or will he also succumb to the strangers violence before the mystery is solved?

What a wonderful first novel from this Texas author. Dhampir (a vampire hunter)is creepily elegant from start to finish. The story of itself is a tale of terror and the search for knowledge. A knowledge that Caine (the main character) may or may not want to actually uncover. The twists and turns Caine struggles through will keep you turning page after page until ultimately you realize you have finished the book in one sitting. IT'S THAT GOOD. Ms. Swaim's use of descriptive darkness fills this book to overflowing. You will be sucked into this darkness immediately, and the darkness will not release you even when you turn the final page. The gothic setting reminds one of Mary Shelley, but the twists and turns brings to mind Clive Barker and Stephen King. You will not be dissapointed in following Caine as he searches for who his father is, why are the townspeople being killed and most of all, what will his mother's diaries reveal to help him in his fight for life or possibly death?
A great read for not just the horror/gothic fan, but for anyone who likes a well presented story of life (and death). Pick it up, you won't put it down until you turn the final page. Hopefully this is just the beginning of Ms. Swaim's assualt on the book world.
"Here are the diaries, Caine". He pointed to the bundle Caine had noticed on the desk as he entered the room, "You may want to take them with you". AND SO WILL YOU.

An interesting and well written story of a young man who is left to decipher his heritage through his mothers diaries given to him on his 25th Birthday. Caine is ignorant of his father and his mother died when he wa 5. He grew up safe and wealthy under the care of his Aunt and Uncle, but his birthday brings knowledge and unpleasant surprises. In his mothers will he is left diaries and letters that reveal his father and the evil that has stalked his parents. He must quickly master the powers that his legacy left him to fight this evil and end the threat to his life and revenge his parents. A good book well worth the read. Hopefully we will see another one soon.

I actually read this book online first; where there should only have been a chapters-worth of the story, the whole book was posted, and i ended up reading it (on my computer) straight through. I didn't even realize how long I'd ben sitting there, and then it was done. Dhampir is a very intriguing story, and there should be a part two coming up at sme point--the author left it open for one I believe.

Kudos to you, Ms. Swaim, and sorry I never wrote my review until now...
