    One thought on “Vampire World I: Blood Brothers”

    1. For about the past six years or so, I've been a visitor to BrianLumley's vampire world. It hasn't taken me this long because of the availability of the novels, but because I'm bent on making each novel in this series an annual treat.The Necroscope series has done what has seemed to be the impossible, and that's keep me thoroughly enthralled in a series for five novels. I don't have to rehash what I've already written, you all know how I feel about this series if you've read my other reviews.I th [...]

    2. This is the second of the Necroscope Series. I didn't find this as good as the first, but still a lot of fun to read. This Vampire World series consists of:Blood BrothersThe Last AerieBloodwarsPlot ***Spoilers***Blood BrothersIt is revealed that after the Battle in the Garden (Necroscope 3, The Source) while recovering from the ravaging of his mind by his son The Dweller, Harry Keogh fathered two sons unknowingly with a Szgany woman Nana Kiklu, in starside/sunside. This books covers in some part [...]

    3. The Bloodwars trilogy are my absolute favorites out of the whole Necroscope series. This book takes place in its entirety in Sunside/Starside, and follows Nathan "Harry's son" as he heads East and encounters New Wamphyri and supplicant gypsies. The Wamphyri aren't your Anne Rice vampires. These Lords and Ladies would tear them to pieces! If you like your vamps to scare the heck out of you and you want to know what they make with all those Live and dead victims, then this is the series for you. B [...]

    4. This is the sixth book in the Necroscope series, and the first book in the blood brothers trilogy. The bioengineering imagery of the inner workings of the vampire 'stack' are morbidly fascinating and, at times, stomach churning. There is much implied and it makes the imagination scream, and then you just keep wanting to know more. I thought that it took a bit longer to get in to it, and then it seemed like the end was rushed. That's ok though, it was a satisfying book to read.

    5. Brian lumley is my favorite vampire author because these are not your typical coffin dwelling vampires or your teenage twilight vamps.These are some hard core mothers of all vampires who are nasty as can get and I loved everyone especially cankor wolf fox, if you love vampires you have to read lumley you won't regret it! I didn't.

    6. These books are the best. I am reading the series for the second time. I have the whole paperback set from 1-13I would recommend these reads to anyone that have a love for Vampire Stories with a lot of Gore. Five Thumbs Up!

    7. Necroscope Series by Brian LumleyReview by Andy Strutt author of “The Afflicted”I first discovered this series by receiving “Necroscope III : The Source” as a Christmas present. I had never heard of Brian Lumley but I was instantly infatuated with his work as soon as I had read the first few pages. Obviously, the first thing I did was go out and find the rest of the Necroscope series.Harry Keogh is a very strange character with morbid supernatural powers that allow him to speak to the de [...]

    8. The first two hundred pages of this book are really excruciatingly dull. I found them hard to read. That's because there's no human focus and no real plot. Instead we get a lot of parallel story to other Necroscope book and a lot of dull history. It's all in service to setting up the actual story of the book, but that means it isn't the story itself. After reading all this, I had to set the book aside for a while, in the hope I'd be able to able to enjoy the rest better after a break.And after l [...]

    9. By the Blood Wars series, I lost most interest in the series. There was too much convolution in an effort to keep alive a storyline that should have ended with Deadspeak or before.

    10. Harry Keogh's twin sons are growing up quickly and are in competition for a beautiful gypsy girl. When the Wamphyri return to Sunside, their group is not quite ready for the attack and the brothers are separated. They both survive, but are changed forever. A great continuation of this fascinating series.

    11. This entire series makes for excellent Halloween readingIf I was filthy rich, I'd seriously try to get this entire series to the big screen. Much the same as the "Strain" made it the screen.

    12. Necroscope Series by Brian LumleyReview by Andy Strutt author of “The Afflicted”I first discovered this series by receiving “Necroscope III : The Source” as a Christmas present. I had never heard of Brian Lumley but I was instantly infatuated with his work as soon as I had read the first few pages. Obviously, the first thing I did was go out and find the rest of the Necroscope series.Harry Keogh is a very strange character with morbid supernatural powers that allow him to speak to the de [...]

    13. This is a different world than that of the Harry Keogh world, this one taking place entirely in a fantasy world and not crossing over into our world. A good beginning, fleshing out a prologue of sorts, the return of the vampires and how they begin to take over. I like this horror or dark fantasy better than most fantasy. Except Lumley uses a ton of exclamation points! LOL. Everything is a surprise to everybody!Anyway, hardly a fault. I've been trying to find The Last Aerie somewhere, might have [...]

    14. Another good twist / addition to the series. Very nicely done and still as vicious and entertaining as ever.Very good series! Imagine any knowledge that you needed at the ready for your asking. Enter Harry. Very well designed story, with a main character that is easily identified with, Harry Koegh. The imagination that came up with these characters must have experienced some truly awful things. Lumley, being an ex SAS officer, surely did. The vampires in this series are not nice. They are not wa [...]

    15. Good book although it starts with a very convoluted and winding storyline. It goes back and forth in time between different storytellers and narrators covering the history of Lumley's Vampire World and the origin of the Wamphyri. All of that is interesting, if a bit rambling, since it provides a lot of insight into how the Wamphyri live. Once the story of the brothers finally begins, the book becomes a much better and faster read, effectively drawing me back into the Vampire saga after a long de [...]

    16. minor spoilers follow. this starts off a bit slow. we have a prologue scene showing a certain character and then 16 years later, twin brothers. one who mumbles a bit and one who is overly aggressive. they both like one girl (like you do :) ). then stuff happens and one brother is taken away and you realise you're in the world where the wamphyri live in. the brother who survives, he becomes the new necroscope and the other brother begins his recovery. Easiest way to explain this. it's like the Lo [...]

    17. As always, I really enjoyed this book, by Brian Lumley. It was tightly condensed for a 400 page book, and it was slow going; however, The new generation was great, and I'm looking forward to reading the Last Aerie.

    18. It was pretty good. Being in the Vampire world the whole time is kind of depressing and I really missed Harry. I felt sorry for Nathan not knowing how to use his gift. I hated Nestor from the beginning. Hard to see him as Harry's son. But it was a good read.

    19. After a (worrisomely) lengthy setup of history and characters Blood Brothers eventually settles into a satisfying piece of horror fantasy with compelling heroes, anti-heroes and villains that climaxes with a tantalizing cliffhanger.A worthy installment in Lumley's ongoing Wamphyri saga.

    20. It's like most Brian Lumley books: it starts off confusing and WTH is going on and within the last twenty pages it starts getting really good. Good book, but I'm giving up on Brian Lumley, I don't have time for this.

    21. I don't know how I have managed to read 7 of these things. They seem so dry for the first several hundred pages. With every single one of them, I go through a phase where I consider stopping. Then the last third really picks up and leaves on a bit of a cliffhanger. Why am I doing this?

    22. Not for young kids, I read this one years ago and the story was okay, I like the earlier ones in the series better.

    23. One of the best in the series, but a little slow in the beginning.Nathan and Nestor, twin boys of the necroscope begin their lives.
