Product Description

Review

‘Since reading Lumley’s Necroscope series, I know that vampires really do exist.’ H.R. Giger

‘Like the vampires it so full-bloodedly portrays, Brian Lumley's Necroscope series just gets stronger. His lively mix of action and monstrosity transmutes the base cliché of the vampire and turns it into a wonderfully contemporary bane.’ Fear Magazine

From the Back Cover

THE HORROR FROM BEYOND

An invasion from an alien dimension! That would be horror enough in itself: the thought of monstrous beings stalking the Earth. But how much more nightmarish if the invaders were each and every one -

VAMPIRES!

Searching the infinite parallel time-streams of the metaphysical Möbius Continuum for his long-lost wife and son, the Necroscope Harry Keogh discovers that Soviet scientists have accidentally opened a portal to mankind's worst nightmares. The lethal terror of Chernobyl is a mere bad dream by comparison.

THE SOURCE

of all Dark Legends can now be reached by any who dare to pass through the Gate. And by some who do not dare – but who have no choice …

'Necroscope III: The Source' carries the story begun in 'Necroscope' and continued in 'Necroscope II: Wamphyri!' on into terrifying new dimensions of other-worldly horror and carnage. Here is your ticket to Hell. But be warned: it's a one-way ticket…

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.

I love the way he develops the Vampire origins in this one adding weird time/space anomaly's into his tale of metaphysics over physics and metamorphic monsters.

His writing owes a lot to Lovecraft but in my opinion is better and manages to also have elements of a spy thriller blended effortlessly into the mix give it a unique style of its own. All of Lumley's books are well worth reading thought I am particularly fond of the Necroscope series and this is one of my favourites.

Some advice though Necroscope 1 - 5 should be read through in order, so it was odd the published the first one on kindle only after 2,3 and 4 and a petty we most still wait for Necroscope 5 to come to kindle still.

Sadly my paper back copies have all been leant out or lost over the years.

This is the third book in the Necroscope series, and this one sees Harry Keogh once again recruited by the British ESPionage services to find out where various strange monsters have been coming from, somewhere in Russia/Ukraine. Using the teeming dead Harry finds The Source of the Wamphyri world where he believes his long lost son is now living.

The Russian E-Branch sends a team of its people into the Source to investigate what is on the other side, so not only does Harry have to fight the denizens of this new world, but he also has the Russian E-Branch looking for him.

This book is, like the previous two, vary well written and a fast action packed read. I first read these books (1-5) when they first came out in paperback in the mid-late 80’s, and I know have them on my Kindle, working my way through them.

Note on the Kindle version: No proplems at all. (Kindle Fire HDX)

a great edition to the necroscope series, through an accident at a secret Russian facility, a gateway to the vampire home world is discovered, harry - through contact with the great majority (the dead) - knows that Brenda and harry junior are not among them but also are not on this earth, so he heads for the vampire source world in search of them. I am going on to the next one immediately, although I read some of the necroscope series many years ago, I have really enjoyed reading them again and I am looking forward to reading the ones that I missed first time round. If you like vampire novels and want something different from the norm, then give Brian Lumley's necroscope series a try, you will be horrified and entertained by this series. I recommend it highly.

Lumley could have just made another hunt the vampire entry in this original and interesting series. However 'The Source' is a remarkable break from the first two chapters. Although the story still follows Harry and the interaction between the UK and Russian E-Branch supernatural agencies, the plot, and indeed location, of the story is a great new twist. The Russians have created a grey hole, which acts like a gate between worlds (or versions of Earth at very least). You can guess who's on the other side. 'The Source' adds to the Necroscope history, whilst presenting an action-packed horror story. Riveting from start to finish this third chapter should not be missed.
