Overview

In The Priest of Blood, a youth named Aleric became falconer, then soldier — and finally, vampyre. In The Lady of Serpents, a dark queen rose to power among the frozen towers of her kingdom. And now, she seeks the Dark Madonna from beyond the Veil. From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes the third book of the epic dark fantasy saga, The Vampyricon.

In a world of gods and monsters, love and betrayal, handmaidens of Death, terrifying and beautiful vampyres, shapeshifting wolf women, shadow priests, epic battles, and magnificent underworld kingdoms, The Vampyricon concludes with a titanic battle fought between the Queen of Wolves and Aleric, Falconer, the priest-king of the race of vampyres.

Praise for The Vampyricon:

Christopher Rice, New York Times bestselling author of The Vines and Heaven's Rise.

"If you like Game of Thrones and vampires, you're going to love The Vampyricon." - Robert Swartwood, USA Today bestselling author of The Serial Killer's Wife and New Avalon.

"Douglas Clegg has accomplished a rarity in the horror vein...This book will sink its teeth into you" -- The Kansas City Star

    Readers find themselves transported into the Clegg realm

    He is called the ¿Anointed One¿, the Maz-Sherah, named so by Merod the Priest of the Blood. He feels no different than any other vampyre as he flees with Pythia, a mortal vampire since she put on the Gorgon Mask, from a land torn apart from feuding vampires who want totke over another vampyre¿s land and believe they have the right to do so. Although Aleric doesn¿t trust Pythia, she is carrying his child and so he keeps an eye on her knowing she can turn on him at any second.------------ The veil between the worlds is thinning, and Medya, The Dark Mother, is trying to return to the realm she was exiled from and lay waste to all that opposed her. On the battlefield where the sorcerers fight the crusaders, Pythia and Aleric raise an army from the dying who choose to accept the Sacred Kiss. Aleric, with another vampire, travels to the ccity of Myrrad. There the serpent God gives him the weapons needed in the upcoming battle against Medya and the Myrrydanai priests at Taranis-H, also called White Robes. Inside the city are Pythia and his two mortal children. If Aleric loses the war, all he loves will be destroyed.-------------- This is the last book in the Vampyricon Trilogy and it ties up all the loose ends and ensures all the key questions not addressed in the previous two books are answered. Although more action oriented than the first two books (see THE PRIEST OF BLOOD and THE LADY OF SERPENTS) in this fabulous series, the characters are fully developed and readers get a better understanding of what motivates them. Douglas Clegg is equally a good storyteller in the horror realm as he is the fantasy area and readers who like him in one genre will also like him in the others. His world-building is so magical that spellbound readers find themselves transported into the Clegg realm to trek alongside Aleric.---------- Harriet Klausner
