|FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM,
THE WORLD NEEDS A NEW NECROSCOPE
Harry Keogh, Necroscope,
is no more...
And the Wamphyri are back
- not only in the Vampire World, where the ancient northern ice
has melted to release the original, the most evil, most powerful
vampires of all time, but in our world, too. Without the Necroscope
- the one man who could talk to the dead and the undead alike
- only Ben Trask and his weirdly talented espers of his secret
organization, E-Branch, stand between Mankind's survival and its
domination by terrible invaders out of Starside.
Trask: human lie-detector;
David Chung: locator of all things evil; Ian Goodfly: precog,
whose glimpses of ever-furtive future have so often saved the
lives of his E-Branch colleagues. Three men, their technology
and their esoteric talents against shape-changing challengers
from a parallel universe. The odds don't look good, and Harry
Keogh is dead and gone, his motes scattered throughout all the
universes of Light. But as Harry himself was witness, death isn't
Harry may be dead, but
his legacy lives on.
|THE FIRST VOLUME OF
THE E-BRANCH TRILOGY
Three great vampires -
two Lords and a Lady - fall upon an unsuspecting Earth, a world
teeming with defenseless human life. easy prey for the marauding
vampires, mankind will quickly be laid waste, or so they think.
But Earth has defenders.
Though the Necroscope is gone, the ESP-powered spy organization
he once led still exists. Mentally alert for the slightest sign
of vampire taint, the men and women of E-Branch have already moved
against the fringes of vampire infestation.
Destroying minor vampires
is all well and good, but the Lords and Lady must be found and
eradicated. Without Harry Keogh and his connection to the teeming
dead, E-Branch seems crippled, always two steps behind it's enemies.
When a young man turns
up in the triply locked "Harry's Room" in E-Branch's London HQ,
no one quite knows what to make of him - least of all the young
man himself. Jake remembers running for his life, thousands of
miles from London...and then nothing.
Now he feels a curious
whispering deep within his mind. And his dreams have become very
strange, filled with visitations from dead vampires and dead people
and Harry Keogh himself.
If Jake is the new Necroscope,
he has to learn - fast! - how to control his powers and speak
to the dead. E-Branch, with the reluctant Jake along for the ride,
is about to go head-to-head with Malinari the Mind, a vampire
Lord whose psychic ability is second to none.
But the dead don't trust
Jake, not like they once trusted Harry. jake's spending too much
time talking to a dead vampire, and too much time on personal
revenge. He's got to start thinking about the future - or he won't
