With our first novel, Morrigan's Brood, readers probably didn't notice until the end that the story arc continued into the second novel, Morrigan's Brood: Crone of War.

With our first novel, Morrigan's Brood, readers probably didn't notice until the end that the story arc continued into the second novel, Morrigan's Brood: Crone of War. We have taken a similar approach to Morrigan's Brood: Dark Alliance, in that the main story arcs continue over three novels: this novel, as well as Morrigan's Brood: Curse of Venus and Morrigan's Brood: Shards of light.
This new tale of the Deargh Du takes place in the early 9th century CE during the reign of Emperor Charles I, who many know as Charlemagne. Historically, in this era, were great conflicts between the Franks and the Saxons, Emperor Charles and Pope Leo III, and the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church. We thought this was a ripe backdrop for storytelling.
If our readers have been keeping track of the years our works take place within, they will notice that Book 2 ended in 564 CE, whereas Book 3 begins in 801 CE. What happened in the last 237 years?!?!?! I have an answer... Heather and I wrote two short-stories to bridge the gap. They are called Madness & Reckoning, which we published as a novella.

About the Authors
Books of the Morrigan's Brood Series
The series strives for a level of realism that reflects the periods within which the stories take place. Therefore, the series contains elements that some readers may find objectionable. Some of these elements include war, murder, brutality, cruelty, torture, blood drinking, depictions of non-Christian beliefs and practices, and some eroticism. The content is similar to several television series recently released on premium cable TV stations, namely HBO's True Blood and Rome, Starz' Spartacus, and Showtime's The Tudors. The publisher recommends an 18 and over rating, though we have heard from some open-minded parents who, after reading, allowed their children to read books from the series as well.
