  • 1 thought on “Necroscope: The Lost Years Volume I”

    1. The Lost Years (book one) seems very familiar, with an age-old wamphyri on the return with its oh-so-slow build-up as the vampiric influence builds throughout the book. The new factor here is the addition of a werewolf conflict, all tied in to the same mythos. Although all the key players are in effect from the Necroscope series, this volume seems to be more of a rehash of the early books and is to verbose to hold interest for long. The best chapter for tension and intrigue is the epilogue! The [...]

    2. The Necroscope Lost Years series fills in some of the gaps over 2 books. Simply titled Necroscope: The Losy Years (I & II). Not much of a read and a bit boring for my liking. I bought them purely for the collection. You wont miss anything important if you don't read them.Plot ***Spoilers***Book IBetween Wamphyri! and The Source, earlier novels in Brian Lumley's internationally best-selling series of the millenia-long struggle of humanity against the most horrific plague of vampires ever spaw [...]

    3. 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 [...]

    4. Hidden within this long tome is a brilliant novel. Greatly enjoyed this one, but a 1/3 of the manuscript should have been trimmed. I've never read a novel where the characters spent so much time sitting around thinking! Lots of thinking in this novel, and less actual doing.That aside, I loved the book. I've read this book just after reading book 3 (The Source). I'm blown away by the history and new vampire characters Lumley has introduced into the story. He almost has an unlimited number of book [...]

    5. Having been a fan of the original 5 book Necroscope series, I was truly disappointed with this. It felt like a cash-in. Basically padding that could easily have been parts of the original series that were left on the cutting room floor.I'd recommend against buying this, and direct you to the Vampire World series instead if you've reached the end of the original 5 Necroscope books and are looking for somewhere to go next.

    6. A decent read that fills in the time period between books two and three of the original Necroscope series and ties up a few loose ends. I gave it a high rating because I always find Brian Lumley enjoyable, however this doesn't quite have the oomph of previous volumes and definitely feels like it's going over old ground. Worth a look if you read and loved the Necroscope and Vampire World series but I'd say this one is probably for fans only.

    7. There was a lot of information in this book that was needed before reading the Source. The Lost Years Volume I explained why Harry was looking for Brenda and the baby. The Lost Years Volume I also had another story going within itself. I keep having to take a break from the Necroscope series because while the books are very enjoyable there is an awful lot going on at once.

    8. I picked this one up as kind of a goodbye to the horror/ColdWar novels I read in my misspent youth. And of course it was by Brian Lumley, so that meant it was good enough to make me want to rekindle my connection to this series. But then I had to ask myself if I really wanted to read the whole 20 or so books in this series, and I had to decline and read something else.

    9. I love Brian Lumley's books but this one nearly drove me mad. too much rehashing of past books and very slow to get to the real story. then I find out after struggling to read the Lost Years the it is volume 1 and the story continues in volume 2. God grief!

    10. I don't know what would be worse: living in thrall to one of Lumley's Wamphryi Lords or being trapped in a white padded cell with nothing but reams of the author's excruciating expository filler as one's only escape from looming madness.The Lost Years, Volume 1 is a bore.

    11. I found this book at a Barnes and Noble, a place I despise, when I was trying to kill some time between job interviews in DC. The book filled the void of not reading about Harry Keogh for YEARS! The book itself is quite interesting and leaves you hanging hardcore. No choice but to buy Volume II.

    12. This book and the next cover the years of when Harry was looking for Brenda and Baby Harry. I liked reading about Harry's character again.

    13. Interesting addition to the series but I agree with previous reviews that it lacks some cohesion and does tend to drag a bit compared to previous books. Still enjoyable for fans of the series.

    14. Another great book by, Lumley. So far every book in the series has gotten better! Worth checking out if you haven't yet.
