Product Description

Product Description

DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES...Except to Harry Keogh, Necroscope. And what they tell him is horrifying.
In the Balkan mountains of Rumania, a terrible evil is growing. Long buried in hallowed ground, bound by earth and silver, the master vampire schemes and plots. Trapped in unlife, neither dead nor living, Thibor Ferenczy hungers for freedom and revenge.
The vampire's human tool is Boris Dragosani, part of a super-secret Soviet spy agency. Dragosani is an avid pupil, eager to plumb the depthless evil of the vampire's mind. Ferenczy teaches Dragosani the awful skills of the necromancer, gives him the ability to rip secrets from the mind and bodies of the dead.
Dragosani works not for Ferenczy's freedom but world domination. he will rule the world with knowledge raped from the dead.
His only opponent: Harry Koegh, champion of the dead and the living.
To protect Harry, the dead will do anything - even rise from their graves!

3.0 out of 5 stars a good start. 8 Sep 2013

Recommended by a friend. Not a bad read but seemed to be a lot of exposition that is hopefully setting up the next books.

As the title of my review suggests, I think this is one of, in fact the best, vampire series out there. None of this poncey, childish Twilight rubbish, these Necroscope vampires are far more scary and powerful than the aforementioned nerds. The series is well written and fast moving. In short, the book, one of about 13, I believe, in the series introduces us to Harry Keogh, a 13-year-old boy who is able to speak to the dead. Not in that medium, spiritistic, let's all join hands, "Is anybody there?" way but he speaks to the dead as if there were living persons standing right next to him. He can allow them to direct his actions, such as when he is being bullied and he allows a dead ex-army Physical Training Instructor and self-defence expert to direct his actions in order to vanquish the bully, or later when he allows a dead driving examiner to help him pass his driving test. As Harry grows up he becomes more and more powerful and the dead teem to help their friend, their only link back to the world of the living. Harry is recruited in his adult years by the British government to help spy on the Russians who also have a ESP branch. Harry's nemesis in Russia is a Necromancer; a man able to steal secrets from the corpses of his enemies. On top of that we also get the Necromancer's side of the story as he fights his own personal battles with a Vampire (or 'Wamphyri") who is buried in a woodland somewhere and is desperate to return to the world of the living. This book is great and I would recommend it to anybody who likes vampire stories.

A bote on the Kindle version: Perfect! No proplems at all.

Read the complete series years ago, thought it was brilliant, found one of the paperbacks in the loft, so time to read them all again.

I don't have the Kindle version but the entire collection is sitting on my bookshelf. As electronic format is fast becoming the way forward here is my review.

This book can be slow at times. It's setting you up with the main characters (alive and dead) and the premise for the rest of the series and what a series! The Necroscope series takes every current vampire series and smashes them to pieces and seriously, don't even think of the tiniest bit of sparkle in the vampires! They're dark, twisted, evil, nasty, depraved and you will LOVE them and their inevitable demise! All the other books don't come close to being the pretender to the pretenders throne of vampire stories.

So this first book? You begin back in 70's England and Russia during the Cold War and then discover there's a hidden secret in the world of ESPionage. From there it's a trip to hell and back for Harry as you follow him learning to come to terms with his incredible power which becomes powers and then some later on. The plot moves quickly but unpredictably as you discover a new insight into the word EVIL. Yes, the bad guys lose in the end and it probably wasn't the butler who did it but climb in, hang onto your hat and prepare for an incredible journey regardless.

So good I wore out my first set of 8 books from when they were first released and am now on my THIRD set! I've read these books over and over and still don't get tired of them, even the vampires (Wamphiri) have become old friends now. Kindle edition in a nice safe, hard wearing electronic format here I come.

Brian Lumley writes like a demon. The visualization throughout totally engages you as if you are there. This is the second reading of this, the first in the necroscope series and believe me when I say, it only gets better. Totally enthralling, a must read.
