There is a problem with this Kindle version of the book, however - it is littered with typos. My guess is that this is due to the original hard copy text being scanned with optical recognition software - that would explain errors such as some instances of a capital I in italics being replaced with /. There are many other errors too.
However, these errors don't really detract from what is otherwise a highly entertaining horror romp. For my money, Lumley's vampires are the best - no soul searching romantics, just thoroughly evil bastards! What I do find distracting in Lumley's work is his tendency to use commas as conjunctions, and his habit of having characters start dialogue with 'well, and...' If it was just one character who had that habit of speaking, then fine. But it just crops up unexpectedly with diverse characters from diverse backgrounds. Strange.
There is no getting away from the fact that this is an excellent story, though, with some interesting characters. Yulian Bodescu is a memorable vampire, and the background to the older vampires is fascinating. The story slows a bit when the action switches POV between multiple characters, some of who aren't so well delineated, but nevertheless, one is carried along by the urgency of the action.
Both old and new Vamphyri make an appearance, and the English and Russian ESPers are working hard - and together - to stop the Vamphyri threat from spreading. A couple of the characters are lost, but if I tell you which ones it will spoil things, and I hope that other reviewers haven't given all the book's secrets away. For myself, I'll just say... follow the neon blue lines and see if you can figure out what's going to happen at the end!
Thibor and Faethor, two Wamphyri are dead, but one has left behind a "soon" who, as he grows, becomes more and more Wamphyri-like, and he is after Harry's own son. To combat this new threat the British and Russian ESP "spy" branches unite to fight him.
This story is just as good as the first with a few twists and turns in it, and plenty of blood-curdling action to keep you going.
Another reviewer from July of this year stated that the book was littered with typos. I don't know if this is now a new edition but I did not noticed one single typo. The formatting is vary good and displays on the Kindle Fire HDX beautifully.

I heartily recommend the whole Necroscope series to anyone having read them many times, I just wish they'd hurry and convert Deadspawn for kindle. Oh and my advice read them in the order they were actually written rather than the Kindle publishing order.
I recommend this, but I am biased as I like Brian Lumley and his Cuthulu mysthos and Titus Crow series.
I'm reading them again and once again I'm hooked.
