Rabbit {Paint me like one of your 19th century gothic heroines!}
This book was quite a genre bender. Set sometime during- or a little after- the cold war it was an alternate universe supernatural version. It felt very noir-esque to me. It also felt a bit sci-fi to me, with vampires from another dimension angle, but I'm sure purists would disagree with me. >:D

It was an extremely sloooooow read, but once I got into it, I really enjoyed this. This will not be a lot of people's cuppa tea, but for what it was, I enjoyed myself.

This was my first book I read from

I honestly wasn't going to rate this one at all. I mean, it's the 13th book in this series, and it's the first one that I've read. I knew going into it that there was going to be a lot of stuff that I didn't know anything about, but the beginning of the book included a pretty detailed (so I thought) "What Has Come Before" section, so I figured I was mostly caught up. But I didn't want my ignorance of the story to affect any ratings, so I had planned on just skipping it.

HOWEVER... then I read the
This book really kind of made me sad, for a couple of reasons. For one, I think this is the end of the story for Ben Trask, Ian Goodly, David Chung. Maybe even of Harry Keogh. I'm not sure, as there is still one more Necroscope book to go. So, perhaps the end of Harry's story and only one more book to go to the end of the Necroscope story. I've enjoyed it through thirteen books. I still have a dozen or so other Lumley stories to read, so I guess I will remained entertained, although I don't know ...more

The final book in the 4th Necroscope series made me feel that Lumley is getting tired of writing about Necroscopes and E-branch. Despite his introduction in Invaders and consequent character growth upon gaining the Necroscope powers, Jake Cutter ended up becoming a virtual carbon copy of the older Harry Keough from the original stories. The book was still tense and suitable paced to keep one's attention held, but lacked any real conviction from the characters. Especially in the end with their to ...more

Copy of my Launchpad review from 2001:
Again, Lumley returns to the universe of the Necroscope and the Whampiri. If you loved the great many sequels that came after Necroscope I then you will probably love these three. However, despite liking the story immensely I noticed two problems: firstly, not having red every previous Lumley book in this universe, some characters and references were a mystery, spoiling the story in places; secondly, it suffers from defeating-evil-at-the-end-syndrome (a nast
One word = satisfying
Its somewhat slow... but finally starting to pick up with less than a 4th of the book left to read. I think Lumley had by this point become tired of writing about E-Branch and vampires.

Wrapped up everything nicely, some story elements began to seem very familiar but in the end everything worked out ok.
Whew, what an ending to the series. Next up Lost years.
