#BookReview – “The Dhampir” by Angela Knight


Genevieve Drake is a Dhampir — half vampire, half mortal, born and bred to be the perfect complement to her vampire mate, like those of her family for sixteen generations. Instead, she chose to become a cop. Three months ago she survived a vicious attack by a psychotic ex that left her with psychic scars and a desperate need for a new line of work. Time to rethink her future.

Hunter is tall, dark and handsome — and very, very powerful. He’s also been waiting for Genevieve. She was just sixteen when he had a vision that they’d one day become lovers. He’s been biding his time ever since.

But Genevieve’s experiences have left her unable to trust any man, even Hunter. If he wants them to have a future, the vampire will have to find a way to banish her ghosts…


Genevieve is part-human/part-vampire (a dhampir) and a former narcotics officer. Reeling from shooting the man she thought she loved, a crooked cop, she quit the police force and is searching for another job. Her family is full of vampires and dhampirs, and she knows it’s time to take her rightful place in the vampire world as a vampire’s assistant/bodyguard, which also means mistress.

Hunter has been waiting for Genevieve for fourteen years. He loves her and knows she’s the one he’s meant to be with, but she was just a child when they met. Now, she’s an adult and goes to his business in search of a job as his mistress. She wants him as much as he wants her, but her past is forever present in her mind and is keeping them apart.

I liked this book and the characters, but I really wish it would’ve been longer for more character development and fuller back-stories. Still, it’s a good, short story to pass an hour or two.
