    Book details

The third book in the Necroscope series traces the battle between Harry Keogh and the horrifying Vamphyri on their home ground, an alien landscape of looming towers, impossible cliffs, and ravenous vampire-beasts.

Russia's Ural Mountains hide a deadly secret: a supernatural portal to the country of the vampires. Soviet scientists and ESP-powered spies, in a secret military base, study the portal--and the powerfully evil creatures that emerge from it, intent on ravaging mankind.

When Jazz Simmons, a British agent sent to infiltrate the base, is captured by the KGB espionage squad and forced through the portal, his last message tells Harry Keogh, the Necroscope, that the vampires are preparing for a mass invasion.

Harry has only one option--to strike first. He must carry the human-vampire war to the vampire's own lands. But his strongest psychic power will be useless there. What good is the power to summon the dead in a country where nothing ever dies, where every man, woman, and child become half-dead servants of the Vamphyri?

Brian Lumley is the author of the bestselling Necroscope series of vampire novels. The first Necroscope, Harry Keogh, also appears in a collection of Lumley's short fiction, Harry Keogh and Other Weird Heroes, along Titus Crow and Henri Laurent de Marigny, from Titus Crow, Volumes One, Two, and Three, and David Hero and Eldin the Wanderer, from the Dreamlands series. An acknowledged master of Lovecraft-style horror, Brian Lumley has won the British Fantasy Award and been named a Grand Master of Horror. His works have been published in more than a dozen countries and have inspired comic books, role-playing games, and sculpture, and been adapted for television.When not writing, Lumley can often be found spear-fishing in the Greek islands, gambling in Las Vegas, or attending a convention somewhere in the US. Lumley and his wife live in England.

    Ah those Cold War Russians. They always seem to be up to no good, especially in a Lumley's Necroscope tale. Mikhail Simonov, aka Michael "Jazz" Simmons, is a British agent that is sent into Russia's Ural mountains to investigate what he thinks is a new Soviet weapon buried underneath the bedrock of the Perchorsk Pass turns out to be a portal into another world. And what a world it turns out to be. It seems that those pesky vampires didn't just suddenly turn up in Transylvania in the middle ages. Oh, no, no, no. They originated elsewhere in another world and found their way here when they were banished from their world and made to enter the mysterious one-way portal.Lumley's third chapter of the Necroscope saga is chock full of unique and interesting information on the origins of vampires and I'll be a monkey's uncle if it isn't a fascinating AND entirely plausible to the mind. As much as I loved The Source, I will have to admit that from time to time the info dump cumbersome. With that being said, the premise is so unique and I loved the direction that he took the story. Of course, we have Harry Keough involved as he's looking for his wife and son that have been missing for eight years ever since the final battle with Yulian Bodescu. Harry is sucked into the world of the wamphyri as his search and the events at Perchorsk reveal a common denominator. Necroscope III is the best of the three Necroscopes and that's saying a lot. Looking forward to Part IV.4 1/2 stars out of 5You can also follow my reviews at the following links:https://kenmckinley.wordpress.com - @KenMcKinley5

    Another of Lumley's fine Necroscope novels, this doesn't disappoint the avid horror buff. I'll give no spoilers here; I recommend the prospective reader start at the beginning of the series. The novel is well presented in electronic form, the typeface is good, and the basic novel structure is intact. (I've seen some glaring errors in other e-reader adaptations, including missing or misplaced pages and/or chapters.)I'd have given 5 stars if not for typographical errors, some of which forced me to reread lines to comprehend the author's intent. However, in light of Brian Lumley's excellent storytelling, the novel is well worth the price paid.

    Brian Lumley is a master storyteller, and this book blew the past 2 out of the water. Yep, I'm a little biased, as I've read all the books, but besides the Blood Brothers trilogy, which are my absolute favorite, this book comes a very close second. Finally we are introduced to the world that the Wamphyri originate, and what a very scary place that is. The Aeries that house the vampire, and how they make flying creatures and even furniture with molded human and trog flesh is unbelievably terrifying. We get to see how Harry's doing, and finally he meets up with his son Harry Jr. who has now grown up and changed. But what a change! Yep, I'd recommend this book and author.

    I had read this book in the past, however I wanted to re-read them all over again. I am currently in the middle of the book currently. But it is full of action from the onset. Why I got rid of my original books of this series confounds me, however I plan to keep these books. Just in case I want to re-read them in the future. Brian Lumley has to be one of my favorite authors.

    5 out of 5 stars for sure. This has to be my favorite in the series so far.I liked how this one explores the world of the Wamphyri. It was interesting to learn about this world and the history of the vampires. It has a different view of the vampires and how they came to be.I also liked the fact that Harry Keogh, who has taken over the body of Alex Kyle, really had no reason to go on. He has lost his son and his son's mother. Then he gets some information that brings him out of his funk and a reason to go on. He eventually travels to the land of the Wamphyri looking for his son, having no idea what is in store for him.The vampires will go to war against the one they call The Dweller. I just knew that was who The Dweller was! Who will win this great battle? Can the people defeat the mighty and strong Wamphyri? Found out in this epic story and the battle that is fought.You can also follow my reviews at the following links: - @1988Lisa1988

    Brings the former books to a conclusion. Problem is it concludes in a sloppy manner. Follow this long story that ends very quick?y. Still enjoyed

    I read first three books in this great series, and was not disappointed. The story did kind of drag in places, but picked up again, keeping me riveted.That being said, the only reason that I did not give this five stars was the fact that the publisher has set the price of the Kindle edition of the book (my preferred method of reading) much higher than the paperback, even with the cost of shipping. For this reason, I'll be going with the paperback editions from here on out.

    This whole series takes the world of vampires and completes it. Where they came from, why they exist, how you really kill one, how they reproduce, why the gypsies are so closely associated with them and why they do what they do. The series is 100 times better than all other vampire books combined. Well Done Mr. Lumley, well done.(This book was my favorite of the first 5 in the series)
