The Lady of Serpents

Book 2, The Vampyricon - A Vampire Dark Fantasy Epic

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 07, 2006 – This second installment in Clegg's unfolding Vampyricon epic brims with the same dazzling invention and creative mythography as its predecessor, The Priest of Blood (2005). Aleric, the Breton falconer, returns as heir apparent to the vampire throne, but in a world vastly different since he breached the Veil separating the ordinary world from the world of the vampire myth stream. The "lost century" he finds himself in after years of imprisonment in a silver-sealed well is a cruel, plague-ridden time where he and his un-dead companion, Ewen, are forced to fight gladiatorial battles against human and animal opponents. Old friends and enemies appear in new guises, and unforeseeable plot twists abound. Clegg's rich descriptions, ingenious variations on vampire lore and intriguing speculations on a secret history underlying our own make this an exuberantly imagined dark fantasy.
