    Harry Keogh has returned from Starside/Sunside and he's been stripped of his power to converse with the dead, or deadspeak. He also isn't able to travel via the Möbius Continuum. His wamphryii son disabled his ability while on Starside. For four years, Harry has been unable to use his former ability to speak with the dead, except while he is sleeping. Unfortunately, he can not remember his conversations with them once he has awakened. He is stil...

    Well , back to the excellent Brian Lumley & his "Necroscope" series ; at the start of this book , Harry Keogh is an ex-necroscope , his powers having been taken from him by his son (who is Wamphyri) about 4 years ago. At the same time E-Branch are looking into a case of drug smuggling in the Greek islands , & a Mr Lazaridis is finding archaeological treasures so easily-almost as if he knows exactly where to look....So , there's a new vampire in t...

    Maybe it's just me, but 'chillers' stopped chilling me and 'thrillers' stopped thrilling me a long, long time ago. It'd been a good long while since I picked up a book which fell into either category, when I got my hands on this one. The cover is suitably disturbing and well-done. The same cannot be said of the contents. I can only say that this book displays about the same level of plot ingenuity as a 1960's pulp comic. Which is not that surpris...

    “Deadspeak” was one of my favorite Necroscope stories. I’ve been reading the books in chronological order, so I’ve spent the last few months read about all of Harry’s adventures during the Los Years. Pirates, alien forest monsters, the plague bearer, the Mobius murders, etc. I’ve been dying to get back to the present following Harry Keogh’s experience on Sunside/Starside. And Lumley didn’t disappoint. “Deadspeak” contained al...

    Harry Keogh has returned from the parallel world of the Wamphyri with his Necroscope powers hypnotically removed by his vampire son, Harry Jr. He can no longer speak to the dead or go teleporting through time and space via the Mobius continuum.If this wasn't bad enough his new boss is trying to murder him, he is being stalked by a Soviet assassin, and the dead are rising from their graves to leave him messages on his lawn, arranged in pieces of d...

    Oh hey, turns out there is another Ferenczy. Or rather, that's what a lot of this book felt like. Don't get me wrong, it's interesting to fill out a few more of the possibilities of what might happen if a vampire spawns a mostly human child who then desperately tries to learn to be a Vampire. But at the same time, it's starting to feel like the same story again, just with different players.Another twist this time, which I at first appreciated was...

    Deadspeak will make far more sense if you're up to speed with the previous three Necroscope novels. This entry offers a fresh story and villain, utilising a myriad of characters from the first books. It has plenty of twists and the plot is well constructed and straightforward. Previous entries have contained substantial reminiscence to build the story and Deadspeak is set solidly in the current era, with a single flashback to offer some depth to ...

    4.5 - 5 stars this is the first of the necroscope series that I read and have since collected and read them all... maybe a few of the very end I might have missed, but after all the "sparkly" vampire and silly movies and novels i needed to re-read a true vampire lets bleed and no remorse creature book and the creatures in this series do just that, not only are they a race totally different from humans but they live there life as such. The best pa...

    The entire Necroscope series is just one big treat if you like horror and/or espionage. Yes, as I've mentioned in every review for Lumley's books, he's a wacky writer (often not intentionally), but if you can see past some of his quirks and literary weaknesses you'll find his weird, magnanimous soul shining out on every page. I don't know him personally of course, but from his books he just seems like an extremely imaginative and likable person,...

    Book 4 about Harry Keogh: Necroscope. Janos Ferenczy, son of Faethor is back, and aims to be Wamphyri in our world (not Starside). Harry, however, has lost his powers, and is a mere normal man again. What to do to stop this from happening? That's the ride this book takes you on, and it's a good one. Darcy is here, as well as Jazz and Zek (albeit not for much of the book), and there is much travel with some Russian spys thrown as a seperate plot t...

    The beginning of the end? Harry Keogh has some major problems, he's lost his deadspeak and access to the Mobius Continuum, but he's also got a nasty red thread running through his future timeline. I loved this book. Janos Ferenzcy kills off some well beloved characters in this book and I was sorry to see them go. I love how this story takes place in the Greek islands with a bit of Romania thrown in, of course. One of Mr. Lumleys best books in the...

    Another great book in the story of Harry Keogh, Necroscope. I enjoy the way Lumley paces things in his books. It's nice to see that someone as powerful as Harry still has his weakness & gets battered around at times. I just wished he'd put in more of Janos. He's built up to be so powerful, yet we rarely see much of him after his initial introductions. But I guess that can be overlooked as we do learn a lot about him from Faethor.

    As Harry has been deprived of his deadspeak, he must continue to fight against vampires. This time it is Janos, son of Faethor, and he is no joke. This series continues to please and always seems to have more surprises in store as old characters die and new ones are introduced.Bring on the next one.

    Poor Harry Keogh. I think I've fallen quite in love with him. I hate for anything bad to happen to him, so this book made me sad. Still, I couldn't stop reading it and I hope things go better for Harry in the next book, which I'm sure I'll be starting this evening.

    I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.

    This one may have actually still been interesting- though the series has its drawbacks- starting with keeping Harry as the main character.

    Self connected!I am about to spoil you about the area that the heroes visit and that's Greece, where I live. Especially one particular island, Rhodes, (where I studied). The descriptions used in this book made me visit this island after a couple of years. Epic battles are taking place around there!No need to say more. If you have read the first three parts, you will read this one for sure!

    Slow to start, picked up towards the end of the middle. Interesting foreshadowing that screams "need to continue." Loving it.

    By Brian Lumley, published in 1990.In Necroscope IV: Deadspeak, the fourth Necroscope novel by Brian Lumley, something in Romania is stirring again. Ashes to ashes, dust to demon . . .But Harry Koegh, the Necroscope, has been stripped of his powers and is pretty much useless in the battle which is to come. It is a battle he will need to win, but how?The last of the Wamphyri - Lumley's version of uber-vampires - is thought to have been burned from...

During this dormant time, Harry has his mind overtaken by the dead while he sleeps.

    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 sup...
