Very enjoyable book.

For the most part, I enjoyed The Lost Years, Volume Two. It tells the story of the coming resurgence of the dog-Lord Radu Lykan, aided by the mesmerizing B.J Mirlu and her girls. She's got Harry Keogh, the Necroscope, under her spell, and spends nearly the entire book controlling him. Combined with the hypnotism worked on him by James Anderson of E-Branch, and it's no surprise Harry commits himself to an asylum.

Overall, this is a great story with lots of characters, but it did have its weakness

Necroscope Series by Brian Lumley
Review 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 dead. That

As with the previous one, an enjoyable read but once more it felt like going over old ground. I guess it's understandable that Brian Lumley wanted to fill in the years between Books 2 and 3 of the original series, and create a credible reason why so much time had passed between those books which was never actually mentioned, but really you won't lose out much if you don't read it. One for the completests only, or if you're in dire Necroscope withdrawal.

After reading volume 1 and being completely dissappointed, I was hoping that Lumley would win me back with this one. He absolutely did. I enjoyed this one far better than volume 1 and look forward to reading the rest of the series. Besides, 10 books in and 1 dud aint to bad in my opinion. I would rather read a dud by Brian Lumley than A hit by Stephanie Meyer anyday.

Recommends it for: Necroscope readers
This book just drags on and ends very predictably minus the strange cooperation at the end. Lumley could have ended the book about 400 pages earlier. Worst of the series. Terribly disappointed much like Chapterhouse: Dune was an awful end to that series. I wish Lumley would have tagged some pages on Volume I and ended this whole thing with honor.

DNF on page 31 because this is not holding my attention at all.

ETA (11/25/15):

I decided I'm going to eventually re-try this book. So indefinite hiatus for now.

One word = lost
It just seemed like he had to come up with something, it did not flow well and seemed to be a lot of filler. Very unlike his other work

Shelves: horror
Lots of twists and turns in this one. Happy & sad for Harry at the same time. I think this may be the last we see of Harry. I hope not, as there are 3 or 4 more books.
