Blood of the Warden by M.A. Nichols

Another great book in this series. The action driven plot made me race to the end so I could figure out what happened. Now, of course, I have to wait until the next book comes out to get more of this story. I like these characters and this story. I think the author did a great job of giving us more of the current story line but introduced a few new twists so it seemed like a new story.

Annie is struggling to correct her mistake. She wants to be tough and independent and struggles with trust. Her friends want to help but struggle with knowing how. This story is building to a crescendo which I can’t wait to read.




Two years ago, Annie faced an agonizing choice–save her family or unleash an evil into the world. Weighed down by the dark memories of her past, Annie is a shadow of the person she once was. With fervent determination, she desperately seeks to save countless souls from suffering the repercussions of her choices. But at what cost?
The Dark Knights are on the hunt, slaughtering whole families in their quest to open the Drogue, but when they go after Emma Shaw, Annie sees a chance to atone for her past and save her friend. In this compelling sequel to The Drogue, M.A. Nichols brings us back to the enchanted world now cursed by darkness–but all the magic in the world is no match for Annie Morgan’s relentless quest for redemption.



Born and raised in Anchorage, M.A. Nichols is a lifelong Alaskan with a love of the outdoors. As a child she despised reading but through the love and persistence of her mother was taught the error of her ways and has had a deep, abiding relationship with it ever since.

She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in landscape management from Brigham Young University and a master’s in landscape architecture from Utah State University, neither of which has anything to do with why she became a writer, but is a fun little tidbit nonetheless. And no, she doesn’t have any idea what type of plant you should put in that shady spot out by your deck. She’s not that kind of landscape architect. Stop asking.
