Book Description

Jan. 15 1992 Necroscope (Book 1)

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!

CENTRAL IN A DENSELY WOODED TRACT OF LAND NOT FAR out of the city-where the Serpukhov road passed through a saddle between low hills and gazed for a moment across the tops of close-grown pines towards Podolsk, which showed as a hazy smudge on the first lights of evening-stood a house or mansion of debased heritage and mixed architectural antecedents. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Nectar Oct. 1 2010
By Chris
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was much different than expected - and much better. I had the impression it was a vampire novel and it was more than that. The plotting was excellent and Harry's adventures made me wonder if they had influenced JK Rowling and Philip Pullman. I'm delighted to know there are many more books in this series and am curious to how Lumley carries on with one line from Necroscope.

I finished the book and then purchased the rest in the series. I am now on the sixth book in the series and let me tell you, they only get better. From the first book to the sixth i haven't been able to put it down. I can't help but reading until my eyes close.

5.0 out of 5 stars a comment on the book and the reviews July 4 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For anyone who is reading this book expecting Tolstoy or Dickens all I have to say is don't read it. While I found this book and several others in the series quite enjoyable they are what I call brain candy. These are not meant to provoke deep thought they are to be read and enjoyed for the story. They are not to be critiqued for the quality of the writing unless it is absolutely horrible, which it is not. It is written at a fairly typical reading level for books of this type. One can enjoy this book if one keeps these things in mind, and remembers it is an entertaining story no more no less. Much as with movies (e.g if you expect a classic drama instead of comedy when walking into a wayans brothers film) if you expect the wrong things from this book you will be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing March 23 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I must say I am a disappointed at this first book of a 13-book series after such high regards from friends and postings. Even though the book is really mostly recounting of back stories, it is still enthralling three-quarters of the way through. I keep saying to myself this is what a first-rate pulp fiction is all about. Then the last quarter gets bogged down with time travel and fizzles out. Granted, I have never liked the notion of time travel; I find it contradictory and illogical. I have tried to go with the flow but there are just too many inconsistencies to NOT annoy the hell out of me. Not to give too much away, but I think if there is no limit to what one can do, if every event is preordained with NO possibility of change, and if nobody is really gone but exist somewhere yapping away and having a ball, then what's the point?!? There would be no tension, no lost, no regrets, no consequence.
Having said that, the book is a very interesting and unique blend of supernatural, espionage, and science fictions. If you have read other time travel stories and find the notion intriguing, you'll have no complaint. On the other hand, if the problems inherent in time travel is not your cup of tea, then you might want to brace yourself before plunging in.

Format:Hardcover
Brian Lumley is so detailed in his writing like how he went in and told you all about Boris' and Harry's back-ground.I think that the writing tnd the plot of the story is just mind blowing.I've read a lot of books I mean a lot and no book has ever brought me in from the start.Like how he talks about necromancer and the e-branch.I would recomend this book to any vampire fans or any Stephen King fans.

I've always been fascinated with vampires. The Necroscope series puts an interesting twist on who and what vampires are. It is an amazing series.
