    HOLY HEAT SEEKING MISSILES! The fifth book in the Metaframe War series just kicked everything up a notch as practically the whole book was like one big fire fight! I felt like I had been plucked out of my warm and cozy chair then slammed into a movie theatre seat with movie cinematics flashing before my eyes! Action is basically non-stop throughout most of the book and once again I had to grab my snacks as I settled down into my seat as I knew there was not going to be time for any breaks while HOLY HEAT SEEKING MISSILES! The fifth book in the Metaframe War series just kicked everything up a notch as practically the whole book was like one big fire fight! I felt like I had been plucked out of my warm and cozy chair then slammed into a movie theatre seat with movie cinematics flashing before my eyes! Action is basically non-stop throughout most of the book and once again I had to grab my snacks as I settled down into my seat as I knew there was not going to be time for any breaks while I had my hands glued to my kindle as I started to delve into The Crane War! The war has arrived from the King of the Vampire Dominion, Cornelius Crane as he has gathered an army of vampires along with his General, Chloe Armitage to go up against the forces of the Mirovar Force Team. Tons of strategic planning on both sides and weapons being locked and loaded/swords and katanas sharpened for an epic battle that we have not seen since the books began. There have been battles in previous books, but nothing compared to this one as this was an all out war bringing good and evil together within one book! The Mirovar Force Team members (Francis, Anton, Jay, Peter, Li, and Chiara) along with Arthur (Anton's grandfather) really mesh together in this book as though emotions are running high among them they all have made it this far together as a team. Team spirit is up and down within their ranks, but though the war has come a calling they are there for each other no matter what. The Blake Force team members (Justin, Samuel, Taylor, Patrick, Tim, Max, and Red) make a full appearance in this book as they are there to assist in the fight with the vampires. Vampire Dominion members - main characters (Cornelius Crane - Vampire King and Chloe Armitage - General) along with (Clayton Maze - General) and the vampire army are wanting to wipe out the Mirovar Force Team and Blake Force Team once and for all wanting to leave none alive. There are other characters that come into play within this book, but I am not going into a detailed version of each one as they all have different roles they play within these pages. What does the war do to all those involved? Who lives and who dies within this war? Who wins and who loses in the scheme of things? No spoilers here as you will just have to read the book! Once again as in previous books there are guns blazing a trail of fire throughout the whole book along with blood splatter on sword blades with fire and explosions When you have a war there are going to be casualties, blood, gore, etc. which brings the pages alive and slams the reader into a bloody battle of life and death! The Crane War has ramped up and has kicked into high gear! Grab your popcorn and soda along with your favorite sword and gun as it is time to kick some "vampire" ass!!" Giving this book five "blazing" stars! Highly recommend to action adventure/urban fantasy fans!

    I was wandering the streets and back alleys of the city, wondering what was going to happen in ‘The Crane War’ - the fifth book in the Metaframe War series by Graeme Rodaughan. I passed an alleyway stinking of stale urine and something that might've died a week ago. “Pssssstttt,” hissed a vaguely human form standing in the deep shadows of the alleyway. “Do you want some?” “What?” I asked.

I passed an alleyway stinking of stale urine and something that might've died a week ago. “Pssssstttt,” hissed a vaguely human form standing in the deep shadows of the alleyway. “Do you want some?” “What?” I asked. The hairs on the back of my neck started to rise, a dreadful itch working it’s way into existence between my shoulder blades. “Books mate. I’m a Booklegger, I’ve got dozens of copies of The Crane War.” “The Crane War?” What the hell was he doing with copies this quickly? The book had barely gone live on Amazon. “Yeah. The Metaframe War series - the real stuff filled with action and gore - not some cheap and shiny knock-off loaded with soppy paranormal romance.” I stroked my chin, glancing around the street, which had suddenly become deserted in the last couple of minutes. A stray breeze rallied into a gust, sending a rusted coke can scuttling along the sidewalk. I had to admit to myself that I was secretly intrigued by his offer - how had he come by such treasures? I needed to know, so I inquired quietly, “OK, show me what you’ve got, and I’ll see if I want to pay your price.” He emerged from the shadows. He was tall, thick set and bearded, cloaked in a long, dark duster and broad brimmed hat. All I could see by the street lamps was the bottom of his face, a crooked grin curling the edges of his thin lipped mouth. “Price? Don’t worry about the price. It’s only a small thing that I ask for, and I find that most people don’t miss it once it’s gone.” He chuckled quietly for a long, lingering moment. My hackles rose. What he wanted was not negotiable for one of my kind. I felt the itch between my shoulder blades begin to grow, stretching out familiar fingers, as my skin began to transform. I growled, my voice suddenly an octave lower, “No one booklegs the Metaframe War series!” He snarled, I leaped, we clashed, hard and fast. He was dense muscle under the duster and I felt like I was working against stone as we fought. But stone can be brittle and I knew this was only going to end one way for him - badly. Dark blood splashed onto the cobblestones and for a moment I wondered if it was mine. Damn it. I should have ordered The Crane War on Pre-Order!

And a shout out to all the folks at Castle Dracula for a fantastic buddy read. It’s hard to believe we are already 5 books into The Metaframe War series. The story picks up right after the conclusion of book 4. The Order of Thoth has taken a huge loss against the vampires and now the Mirovar force team is looking for a way to even the score. They want to strike directly at the heart of one of the vampire’s ultimate weapons…the Panopticon. But, the fortress where the Panopticon is kept may as well be impenetrable. Insert Arthur Slayne. The legendary Order of Thoth member has been planning this day for decades. He has plans in place that took years to come to fruition for just this scenario. There’s only one setback. Will Arthur be the key to helping the Mirovar force team taking the Panopticon, or will he be the death of them all? As always with Graeme’s work we get a healthy dose of non-stop action, close quarters combat, and badass weaponry that would make a combat war veteran proud. Graeme’s ability in writing his action scenes have been a major highlight throughout this series.. They are all very detailed and make the reader feel like they're right in the middle of the carnage. The characters and writing style are another bonus in this series. Chloe and Anton take a lot of the spotlight. But I am enjoying how Chiara and Li’s characters are developing. Both were given time to shine in this book and it’s obvious they are going to be vital to the story going forward. Arthur Slayne was a bit of an enigma for me. I was glad to see him finally enter the picture as we have only heard about him up to this point. But I just can’t warm up to the guy. I know Graeme wrote his character to be portrayed a specific way, and I believe he did a fantastic job. My mixed feelings for Arthur are a testament to how well written his character is. “The human soul is like a flag buffeted by the wind. First it flies this way, then that way, and then another way. But what if you become the wind?” – Arthur Slayne The writing style in this series is very fast paced most of the time. There is a lot going on and multiple POV’s are involved. I really enjoy this type of writing if done correctly, and Graeme seems to have it mastered. It takes patience and a lot of work to write 2 or 3 different scenes that take place simultaneously. All while switching between scenes and getting the timing of each correct. Well done, sir! The Crane War is a great addition to The Metaframe War series. I’m super excited for what Graeme has in store for this series going forward. I strongly recommend these books to all urban fantasy lovers, vampire fans, and anyone who enjoys an edge of your seat-thrill ride of a story. The release date was Dec. 30, so this is now available for all to take pleasure in. “Lions adapt their hunting strategy to the specific vulnerabilities of their prey – and so do I.” – Chloe Armitage Actual Rating: 4.5 stars ****

    What a great addition to The Metaframe War series! Thank you to Graeme Rodaughan for letting me read an ARC of the new book, The Crane War! The Crane War starts off with The Order of Thoth almost being destroyed by inside forces and vampires. The Order of Thoth is a secret fighting organization that is trying to finish off the vampires once and for all. These vamps are not sparkling vampires with romantic tendencies. Oh no, they are blood thirsty, deadly and cunning! The Vampire Dominion is ruled What a great addition to The Metaframe War series! Thank you to Graeme Rodaughan for letting me read an ARC of the new book, The Crane War! The Crane War starts off with The Order of Thoth almost being destroyed by inside forces and vampires. The Order of Thoth is a secret fighting organization that is trying to finish off the vampires once and for all. These vamps are not sparkling vampires with romantic tendencies. Oh no, they are blood thirsty, deadly and cunning! The Vampire Dominion is ruled by Cornelius Crane along with his generals. Crane rules all the vampires in the world and will destroy anyone that steps out of line. He’s cunning, intense and crazy. He's complex and a fantastic character to figure out and hate! The Crane War is full of action, weaponry and bad ass fight scenes. If someone isn’t killed by an automatic rifle, they’ll be sliced through with a katana sword! I love how Rodaughan writes action scenes. It’s nonstop and you’ll forget to breathe while flipping the chapters! I like where he’s taking most of the main characters. In some of the earlier books, I felt like The Order of Thoth members were a bit hot-headed and immature. With a bit more maturity, they would be a more equal match to Cornelius Crane and his lead general, Chloe Armitage. And now they are! I can see how Anton, Peter, Chiara and Li are really coming into their own. I’m enjoying the characterization so much more in this series! And with the addition of Arthur Slayne to confuse motives and the vampires, the series is getting much more interesting. The vampires have always been my favorites since they were so complex and not one dimensional. The Order of Thoth members are also developing both of these things and it’s really making the series so much better. Li is really becoming a favorite of mine in The Order of Thoth members. There’s more things that I want to bring up in this review that I’m excited about but due to spoilers, I don’t want to ruin it for someone that’s just starting this series. The new plot angles in this series (view spoiler)[about the chameleons and the Mekra vampire (hide spoiler)] are really going to be fantastic and also deadly for Crane. Can’t wait to see where Rodaughan takes us with these two new plots! And one of the best things in The Crane War was the horde of vampires at the airport. Fuck yeah, that was fantastic in this book! Definitely recommend this to fans of urban fantasy, action packed plots and lovers of all things vamps!! Start with A Subtle Agency, the first book in the series to get all of the complexities of the plot and characters.

    4.5 rounded up to 5.0 stars! Just as in the previous four books, I really enjoyed reading this next installment. These books in this series are just all kinds of fun. Great characters, which we're watching grow and mature in their roles plus nonstop action keep you on the edge of your seat. And the big picture storyline is intriguing, with twists and turns in new directions happening constantly. I really don't know where the next book will take us, but I'm excited to find out.

I very much recommend this series (starting with A Subtle Agency) for anyone who likes vampire books or action books, or just in general if your looking for a nonstop, fun, thrill ride. You won't regret it!

Fan Art by The Magic Book Corner The fifth installment in the Metaframe War series is hot action from beginning to the very end. As usual, the story picks up right after the end of the previous book and kicks off from the very first page. The Order of Thoth is on the verge of destruction. Arthur Slayne has returned from exile. The foremost foe of the Vampire Dominion seeks the aid of the Mirovar force team. Together, they must defeat the might of the Vampire Dominion and attempt the impossible. Steal the Panopticon from Crane's practically impenetrable fortress. “Sneak into an impenetrable fortress. Defeat the super-soldiers and militarized vampires guarding it. Destroy the Artificial Intelligence at its heart. What could possibly go wrong?” Well, as it turns out.... everything! Anton’s grandfather does seem to have a dark agenda that could possibly prove to be even more dangerous than that of Anton's arch-nemesis, general Chloe Armitage. But will he go though with it, despite the casualties it would cause? Blood or revenge? What path he will choose remains for you to find out while reading. I for one loved every minute of it. Fan Art by The Magic Book Corner Arthur Slayne is one character I have waited to meet from the very beginning of the series and now that the moment has come, he doesn't disappoint. He was my favorite within this installment. Complex and well drawn, he is one to root for. The harbinger of bad news and impossible to get out of situations, Arthur takes the already hot action in this installment one notch higher. And this is exactly what The Crane War is all about. Action. Non-stop edge of the seat nail-biting action in Graeme's typical cinematic style. And exactly because of that, it fell a little short for me. While the action is great, I wanted more! The plot seems very straightforward here, despite the usual intricate subplots that Graeme has gotten his readers used to. We do get Chloe Armitage's intrigues, Cornelius Crane's secrets and Arthur Slayne's dark hidden agenda and yet they were overshadowed by the action. At heart, the The Crane War is a big full out war between the remnants of the Order of Toth and Crane's forces. We get a lot of planning and a hell lot of action, but not so many revelations and twists to take the reader by surprise. Now I'm not saying these aren't there. But they seem very few compared to the rest of the MF books. Until the epilogue that is. Because that is a fabulous end, foreshadowing a kickass sequel that I am looking forward to. I am not a very big fan of full blown out action without equally great character development and interaction to go with it. And this is the place where The Crane War didn't quite do it for me. The characters grow and evolve, especially Chiara, Li and Anton. And yet, I would have liked more show than tell in both their growth and interaction. Their feelings, emotions and motivations felt a little bit unnatural to me at times and that cut a little down from the enticement of the story in general. The action is brilliant, as always. And the blood and gore are deliciously morbid and badass: "Bone shattered and blood sprayed in red ribbons of gore. The walls and ceiling were painted with splats of blood and gobbets of flesh. The concrete ran with rivulets of blood as the corpses piled one upon another." Graeme is a master at writing bloody kickass action scenes! Even while there are several of them going on at the same time. He pulls it off like a charm and makes the reader feel he's smack down in the middle of it all. Brilliantly done! That is one thing I loved in all his books and The Crane War in particular. And then there are the chameleons!! Bad and dangerous to the bone and I absolutely loved them! Especially when they used that endearing term for the human they answered to! "Meat-that-talks' is bound to stick with you! :D And I'm looking forward to their future interaction with Chloe and her henchman. Fan Art by The Magic Book Corner All in all, The Crane War is a wonderful addition to the Metaframe War Series and if you crave hot action, it will be a guaranteed five star read for you. It does feel like a turning point that sets a different base for the future books, one with higher stakes and a much larger scope. And I am looking forward to discovering where it will all lead. I highly recommend this series to all dark Urban Fantasy fans out there! It's one hell of a ride so give it a try! I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

    ***ARC version received from the author for a reading with Castle Dracula group.*** I was looking forward to read this chapter of the series and I must say that I liked it very much. The story picks up where the previous chapter ended with the Order of Toth in jeopardy and a handful of teams opposing the Vampire Dominion. Arthur Slayne's appearance and a mission that can change the fortunes of war, are the fulcrum around which story revolves.

Arthur Slayne's appearance and a mission that can change the fortunes of war, are the fulcrum around which story revolves. But there are also numerous and intricate subplots, where the machinations of the various characters evolve: Chloe Armitage and his intrigues, Cornelius Crane and his secrets and Arthur Slayne, whom we finally meet, an ambiguous but charismatic figure, with purposes are not always clear. The plans of Crane and Armitage add further suspense to the plot, in addition to the mystery of the Metaframe, on which some light is thrown, but whose secrets are still many. There is also a gradual growth and change of all the members of the group, which is very apt in my opinion, because it brings the reader's attention to a higher level, not only focused on the action, but also on the individual characters. For me, the only one who is penalized is Peter, here simply in the role of faithful companion. I hope there will be an evolution for him too, because he is perhaps the character I appreciate most. Overall, an excellent book, for all the fans of action. It's also the demonstration that the series is growing more and more and if you have followed it so far, you will not be disappointed.

    TL;DR--Although at this point in the series, I would've liked more world building--especially in terms of the Metaframe itself--there's more than enough awesome non-stop action and plot complexities to keep readers engaged and entertained. Quite a number of exciting world-building developments were merely touched upon at the expense of action. In addition, as the story progressed some of the tension was taken away by almost flawless planning.

I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series to get to more of the innovative world building.

    Finally, we meet the great grizzled warrior Arthur Slayne, for four books we’ve been hearing about him. Arthur has an amazing plan, twenty years in the making, to take down the Vampire Dominion. Unfortunately, teenagers. That mostly sums my feelings on this chapter of the Metaframe. Great characters like Chloe, Louise, and Crane are just riding the wind. This book is about a vicious battle between Arthur, Team Mirovar, and Team Blake against a bunch of vampires. It’s a one-sided affair.

    3.5 stars I have read the four previous entries in this series, which with this volume, I believe is about halfway finished now. This has been a very action-packed series and The Crane War is certainly no slouch in the action department. Graeme Rodaughan knows how to craft a tremendous fight sequence and he's no stranger to guns either, it seems. As I read through this book though, I found it disappointing in some areas. First, the length. This story is bloated at north of 140k words.

First, the length. This story is bloated at north of 140k words. A strong edit could've removed 40 or 50 thousand of them and what remained would've been tighter and a better read. Second, this is book five in a series and I wish there was more world building and less shoot em up action. It's time to dive into this Metaframe! And lastly, for me anyway, what made A Subtle Agency great was the effective trope of having a character in over their head against impossible odds. The reader loves rooting for the underdog and Anton Slayne fit the role perfectly. Then. Now, he's an uber soldier and I miss the character I could relate to. All that said though, this is a good book. The action is intense. The descriptions are involved. And Chloe Armitage continues to be the stand-out character of this, or any, series.

    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author as part of a group early read for the Castle Dracula group. Ok so the fifth installment of the series has some really big moments. There's a ton of action, lots of good character development and the story gets deeper and more twisting. Anton's new abilities are out of control and, while powerful, are dangerous to him and his friends and team mates. His relationship with his Grandfather is an interesting dynamic and Arthurs own character I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author as part of a group early read for the Castle Dracula group. Ok so the fifth installment of the series has some really big moments. There's a ton of action, lots of good character development and the story gets deeper and more twisting. Anton's new abilities are out of control and, while powerful, are dangerous to him and his friends and team mates. His relationship with his Grandfather is an interesting dynamic and Arthurs own character presents an unique situation where the character has no foreknowledge of his plan ahead of the plan unfolding. Li undergoes a transition from sidekick to being a core part of the team and knowledge she gains throughout the book becomes a curse, potentially spoiling relationships she has built up thus far and opening her up to new dangers she alone can deal with. Chiara is probably the most interesting character to me in this chapter though, her budding relationship with Anton provides some grounding but her past and possible future have the potential to destroy it all. She's mysterious and skilled but still takes a back seat in the group dynamic aside from in combat until the very end where her true potential is revealed. We also see some more world background on Chameleons and Vampires here thats nice. The group blood lust is an interesting restriction to the Vampires and it'll be interesting to see where the Chameleons place in the world and the story will take them, especially if they are breeding! So much happens its hard to go through it all but this book does feel like a turning point. The old order (pun intended) is gone and the stakes are becoming much much higher for everyone. Everyone is trying to secure their power base and grab whatever else is going whether they are Vampires, gods or humans. The next chapter will be very interesting to see whose plans play out the way they want.
