NEW FEARS, LOST YEARS...
came between Wamphyri! and The Source, earlier novels in Brian Lumley's
internationally best-selling series of embattled humanity's struggle
against the most horrific plague of vampires ever spawned. From
the Necroscope Harry Keogh's point of view, the missing years were
empty, dead - or perhaps undead? Under mental restrictions imposed
by E-Branch, beguiled by Bonnie Jean Mirlu, a fledgling Lady of
the Wamphyri, Harry is a man of two minds, a split personality.
But more than this - as a man revitalized in another man's body
- he is the classic schizophrenic.
On the other hand, Radu Lykan is a man - or a monster - of two
worlds. An original Lord of the Wamphyri, from Starside in an alien
vampire world, Radu has lain preserved in resin in a state of suspended
animation in his high Cairngorms lair for six-hundred years! Now
the time of his return is at hand. Except -
- The dog-Lord has dreamed of a 'Man With Two faces' who will be
there in the hour of his resurgence. Harry Keogh is that man, in
whom Radu will rise up again, resurrected! Problem enough for the
Necroscope, without that other vampire survivors - the last Drakul,
and the Ferenczys - are also after his blood...
