|NATHAN IS THE NEW NECROSCOPE
But on the Vampire World
the dead won't talk to him. And on the world of men beyond the Hell-lands
Gate, there are even worse terrors than the vampires on Starside.
Yet that is Nathan's lot: to venture into the world of his father
- Earth, there to seek the source of Harry Keogh's awesome talents
with which to return to Sunside/Starside, defeat the Wamphyri, and
destroy - The Last Aerie!
Nathan is not alone; Ben
Trask an the espers of E-Branch will befriend him even as they befriended
his father twenty years ago. But against natural and supernatural
forces alike, will even their metaphysical skills suffice to send
him home again? And if they do, what then? For in Starside a new
vampire walks the night: Lord Nestor Lichloathe of the Wamphyri...
|Nestor and Nathan Kiklu are
the twin sons of Harry Keogh, the Necroscope, the man who talked to
the dead, rallying them to mankind's side for great battles against
The twins, linked by blood
and the unique mental powers they inherited from their father, are
driven apart by their love for the same woman...and their very different
attitudes toward the vampires who prey upon their people.
Nathan takes up the struggle
against the vampires, defending home and family, while Nestor, fascinated
by the vampires' unearthly powers and eerie evil, has become his
twin's worst nightmare: a vampire Lord!
Nathan is imprisoned by a
megalomaniac ESPer who plans to invade the vampire world. Rescued
by the members of E-Branch, the British psychic-powered spy organization
once led by Harry Keogh, Nathan finds himself fighting side by side
with his father's oldest friends.
Nathan Kiklu, like Harry
Keogh, is a necroscope. He must win the friendship of the dead before
he can return to his own world.
Nestor, growing ever more
powerful among the vampire hierarchy, plots the ruination of all
his enemies and the complete domination of the human race.
Harry Keogh's sons have become
the bitterest of enemies, each determined to destroy the other.
When next they meet, one will surely die!
