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, though, works not for Ferenczy's freedom. He seeks world domination—he will rule the world with knowledge raped from the dead. His only opponent is Harry Koegh, champion of both the dead and the living. To protect Harry, the dead will do anything—even rise from their graves!
Written with whipcord tension, Necroscope is sure to keep readers in thrall well past the last page. Brian Lumley's bestselling Necroscope series of vampire novels firmly established him as a master of the horror genre, with the depth of the venerable H. P. Lovecraft and an edge all his own. Winner of the British Fantasy Award and a Grand Master of Horror, his works have been published in a dozen countries and inspired comic books, role-playing games, sculpture, and have been adapted for television.
"I love Lumley's ingenious ‘Necroscope' fantasy!"—H.R. Giger
