|IN THE VAMPIRE WORLD...
Two monstrous armies stand
opposed: Vormulac Unsleep's undead legions out of Turgosheim,
and Wratha the Risen's Renegades, masters of the last great aerie
of the Wamphyri. The spoils of war will be revenge, territory,
and human flesh! And blood, of course - the sweet blood of Sunside's
Szgany. For the blood is the life, and when life or land are threatened
there's only one course of action for a vampire: battle to the
Trapped in the middle:
Nathan Keogh, Necroscope. And the espers of Earth's E-Branch,
Trask and Zek, Goodly and Chung: Guardians of the Gate against
a vampire invasion of Earth! The Necroscope holds the keys; he
is the only one who can close the Gates to end the crimson carnage
of the Bloodwars!
But the past holds many
a secret, and the future was ever a devious thing!
|Nestor and Nathan Kiklu
are twins, united by blood and by a psychic bond inherited from
their father, Harry Keogh, the Necroscope. Once so close each knew
when the other breathed, they have become the bitterest of enemies,
divided by the terrible evil of the Wamphyri.
Nestor, now a vampire Lord,
rules a portion of the great tower known as the Last Aerie, from
which he and the beautiful but deadly vampire Lady, Wratha the
Risen, hunt the humans once defended by the Necroscope.
Nathan, flung through the
Gate to Earth, discovers that he shares not only Harry Keogh's
ability to talk to the dead but his power to travel effortlessly
and instantly through space and time. Joining forces with Britain's
E-Branch, a super-secret organization of psychics, Nathan returns
to the vampire world to save his people.
Nathan desperately seeks
a way to redeem his twin, but despite the solace he finds in the
arms of his childhood sweetheart, knows his fight with Nestor
must end in death - and the death of all the vampires. Blood -
both living and undead - is spilled as Earthly weapons are brought
to bear against the metamorphic alien Wamphyri.
The psychic powers of two
worlds are united in the titanic final battle that forever changes
the vampire planet...and Earth!
