Crone of War takes off where Morrigan's Brood ended. Marcus and his companions are trying to find an ancient relic before his enemy Mandubratius. Marcus is a Deargh Du and Mandubratius is a Lamia. They are both immortal blood drinkers but if the evil Mandubratius finds what his people have spent 600 years looking for, they could gain the power to rule over all. Elsewhere, Mael Muire is the new chieftain of her people but there are others lurking in the shadows that want her power and land. The L ...more

I simply could not put this book down. I liked the first book, but this one is even better. I already knew the characters and had rooted for them, and I guess that helped with my enjoyment of the book, but also, it is full of intrigue, action and it simply lets you wanting to know more all the time: what will happen? what are this character's true motivations? And so on...
I can not recommend it enough.
If you have not read the first one, you can also read this. The action will be clear enough an

I won this book from First Reads. I recieved both this book and the first book in the series. I loved them both. The first book did a great job establishing the main character and I loved the way the second book story line flowed. I enjoyed the take on our world/history with these new types of vampires and the history of them. Thank you, it was a wonderful read.

Excellent continuation of the Morrigan's Brood series. This series strikes a perfect balance - wink wink, nudge nudge. It is historical without being pedantic, dramatic without being bleak, and humorous without being ridiculous... Okay, so it is a little ridiculous. After all, the mad Lamia are tearing the world apart looking for a magical giant stone phallus. But hey, they're mad. Despite the weirdness of the villains' aims, the means they're willing to use to achieve their ends remain dark and ...more

This took me quite awhile to read as I couldn't get into it. It was better than book 1 less history and no jumping between time periods. But I found if I left it for a few days I had to re-read the previous chapter to get back into the swing so to speak.
Don't hink I'll be reading any more of he series because its not the type of book I would seek out.
