Something ancient has awoken. Primordial and wholly evil, a living shadow emerges from a prison made weak by the magical cataclysm called The Black. Now the Sleeper stalks the land in search of its old enemies, leaving a trail of madness and destruction in its wake.
Eric Cross, a Southern Claw warlock, has been sent to find the Woman in the Ice, the only known means to stopping this evil. Aided by a grizzled ranger and a band of wardens and inmates from a sadistic prison, Cross' mission will bring him into conflict with an array of foes: the barbaric Gorgoloth, vampire shock troops out of the Ebon Cities, and a cadre of mercenary nihilists called the Black Circle.
On a mission that will take him from a lost temple once ruled by insidious wolf sorcerers to the vicious gladiator games of the vampire city-state of Krul to the deadly ruins of an ice city, Cross will play a pivotal role in an ancient conflict whose outcome will determine the future of the world.

I was so hooked on this series with 'Blood Skies' that I immediately dove into 'Blood Scars.' Steven Montano takes a no-holds-barred approach to the second book in the series. While seducing the reader into the deep intimate personal bonds between friends, Cross and his new mercenary crew fight their fiercest battles against the vampires, themselves, and their own impending madness. The imagery drives you through Cross's eyes to fully experience the pain and suffering The Black has caused. Inside the darkest recesses, you feel the frightening affects of the larger than life entity that is determined to destroy all creatures living and undead, the vampire prison which possesses sheer madness inside the cells and outside with shape-shifting walls, the vampires' gladiator arena which pushes them all beyond their limits, and the bloodiest battle Cross has ever faced against the vampires. The warlock hero and his ethereal spirit wage war against evil not only to avenge the deaths of family and friends but to bring a sense of goodness back into his life as well as others. Always humble, Cross is a true hero who knows his purpose and sets out on his quest without hesitation. 'Black Scars' is deliciously horrific yet well-rounded with an intensely delicate twist, a fine line between madness and understanding.
