Publisher Description

With ancient sorceries unleashed, this game of thrones and vampires begins anew as a dark adversary holds Aleric, the Falconer, prisoner -- and prey. In this, the second book of The Vampyricon,  New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg continues the epic dark saga of Aleric, the newly-anointed priest-king of the tribe of vampyres. 


The kingdom is home of the shadow-priests of the Veil, who whisper dark secrets to their new queen as white towers rise and forests fall. Heretics burn on the Illumination Nights and an enormous arena houses endless gladiatorial blood-fights between vampyre and shapeshifter, and somewhere in the bowels of the castle sits an infernal machine for the torment of the vampyre race -- called the Red Scorpion.


In a medieval world, within a forgotten century where dark and dangerous magic lies hidden among lost cities of legend, Aleric the Falconer must escape his prison and find the vampyre Pythia, who has been taken prisoner herself halfway across the world.
