LOVE this series and want more from "Aleric the Falconer!! 25 Jan. 2010
By J. Resnick - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
All in all a great series and completely enjoyed each book...The Queen of Wolves does a great job of bringing it all together - Aleric and his journey as the "anointed one", Pythia and all the rest...this is what a good vampire/horror series is all about - no fluff, gritty, gory, mythology and history woven in, immortal creatures battling it out, etc...I'd love to see Mr. Clegg revisit this world he created, as I think there is plenty more to share!! Highly recommended to any dark fantasy, horror, vampire fans!!!!

A Trilogy for the ages 8 Sept. 2007
By M.J. Rose - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Clegg has created a classic with this trilogy and this last book is stunning. This author's imagination is on fire and its a real treat to read book after book that is as creative as these are. Mythology, archetypes, grand themes and dark passions... this is Clegg at his best and the genre at its best.

strong finish 4 Sept. 2007
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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 to take 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 city 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.
