Book 3 of the Necroscope Series - on the Kindle at last!
on 5 August 2012
Every few weeks for the past year I have been checking Amazon UK to see if the Necroscope books were released on the Kindle and every time I was disappointed, until recently. At last, the Necroscope books are available on the Kindle, albeit only books 1-3 so far, but hopefully the others will follow. I first read these books when they were first release (and have the first 5 in paperback). The stories are amazing! Centred around vampires (not in the stupid Twilight series sense but in the true horror of these creatures. The books also centre around the ESPionage departments of the British Secret Service who are attempting to track the same department belonging to the Kremlin. It's a sort of espionage meets telekinesis meets vampires story that stretches over, so far I believe, about 13 books.
The story starts of with a boy of about 13 who has the ability to communicate with the dead. Not in the same way as the "is anybody there?" séance claptrap but in that he can reach out to them in his mind and speak to them, and most are only to happy to speak to him and help him whenever and however they can. As he gets older his powers increase until he is able to convince the dead to actually rise to help him. They are also able to control his body, if he allows them, to help him deal with certain situations, such as school bullies, driving test and his work. He learns how travel to anywhere in the world instantaneously using the Mobius continuum.
He also has a Russian counterpart who is not only trying to track our hero but is also dealing with an ancient creature buried in the earth who is thousands of years old. Wamphyri!
The story is awesome and the author has the ability to keep you engrossed until the vary last page.
This is the third book of the series which continues the saga of our Necroscope hero, Harry Keogh. A brilliant sequel to Necroscope and Necroscope II: Vamphyri! In this installment we travel to the "Other World" where the terrible Wamphyri first evolved; a dark malevolent and dangerous place to live.
Note on the Kindle version: No proplems with formatting, typos or any of the sort of thing at all.
