    1. Well, it's a sad day.After seven outings with Lumley's one-of-a-kind vampires, I'm afraid this is where it ends for me.The Last Aerie is pretty much a setup for the last in the Vampire World trilogy, where a war between our world and theirs seems inevitable. Sadly, I've ceased to care, given that this setup spanned over 700 pages. Not to say I didn't enjoy the time spent this time, but there was something missing. I felt a complete detachment from the horrors of the aeries, and their victims/inh [...]

    2. Would someone developing new shows for HBO please read Brian Lumley? This was the first of his books I had ever read, finding it in an airport newsstand when I forget my book at home. I've never been happier or luckier to have forgotten my book at home because it opened up a whole new world of fantastic reading to me. I would HIGHLY recommend anything in this series!

    3. This next in the series involves the sons of Harry Keogh, one Wamphryi and the other a man with his father's talent. It takes readers back into the worlds of E Branch as well as the vampire lords and Lady Wratha.Lumley never disappoints and I am starting the next book immediately.

    4. Outstanding - A world apart from Earth; one that abides by one rule: The vampires are the power but they are in great danger from a lone human.Very good series! Imagine any knowledge that you needed at the ready for your asking. Enter Harry. Very well designed story, with a main character that is easily identified with, Harry Koegh. The imagination that came up with these characters must have experienced some truly awful things. Lumley, being an ex SAS officer, surely did. The vampires in this s [...]

    5. Great second novel in the Vampire World trilogy. I liked this one much better than Blood Brothers. It had a much more linear flow and primarily followed the continuing, yet vastly disparate, stories of the twin sons of Harry Keogh without wandering off as much into other tangents and histories. The story propels the reader at an ever quickening pace to what promises to be a satisfying conclusion with the final confrontations between the two brothers, the two Wamphyri factions, and the two worlds [...]

    6. This trilogy is on my list of favorite things EVER! I'm completely biased, of course. I've read the entire Necrscope series every other year for years now, but The Blood Wars trilogy often gets 're-read once or even twice a year. I've yet to get sick and tired of reading it. The Vampires, the Szgany, the Thyre and of course Nathan, THE Necroscope. Now onto the next book. Yep, I can't recommend this story and the trilogy, and the author Brian Lumley, highly enough. This book is one of the best re [...]

    7. As the Koegh saga continues I have found more and more that I prefer the portions of the story that focus on the E-Branch. The vampire plot in the Vampire world seems slow-paced and repetitive. The plot involving John Scofield seemed rushed, and merely a convenience to push the development of Nathan's character forward. Still a well written novel in most regards, and has certainly set the stage for the last book in the series.

    8. The Last AerieThis is the second time around reading this series. The first time was so long ago that I had largely forgotten a lot of what transpired and this makes it just as enjoyable.

    9. This book gets great reviews. Some of it felt rehashed. I get it, they're evil. I get it, the blood is the life yadda yadda yadda seventh book in I think I get it. Maybe I didn't get it though because this is held up highly by fans of the other books. Will I read the next few in the series? Probably because I've already purchased them. Am I looking as forward to blood wars as I once was the source? Nuh uh. How much time will I feel I've been robbed by the end of that book? Who knows because the [...]

    10. The rating is more like 4 1/2 stars. Quite a riveting 2nd book in the Vampire World trilogy. It continues with the story of Nathan and Nestor with Nathan being hurled into our world and Nestor recovering from his injuries and recounting the story of his rapid rise to becoming a Wamphryi Lord. I usually like reading the Wamphryi part but it was slow going here. Didn't care much about Wratha's lustful obsession with Nestor. Love the Nightmare Zone part. Very chilling, eerie and scary.

    11. This is the middle chapter of the vampire world trilogy. this is kind of like 'Lord of the Rings' meets 'Necroscope'. It goes through the twin brother's journey, one in the human world and the other in the 'Source (Vampire) world. That's the easiest way I can put it without giving too much away. It is here really where Necroscope came close to its peak and this is the one where this series became a classic in it's own right.

    12. I really enjoyed this book. It was the second of a trilogy and I had planned on rereading the first book but was grabbed by the first chapter. I really like the theme of a secret global society of men that monitor the occult. Brian Lumley joins other authors ( Anne Rice, Charles DeLint, Sergai Lukyanenko some of my favorites) in doing this so well.One criticism: no map of his imaginary land is provided in this edition. Annoying!

    13. I like this series, but I must admit, I'm becoming a bit tired of the Wamphyri. This is the story of Harry & Nana Kiklu's twin sons, Nathan & Nestor. They are not at all alike. Nathan is a dreamer and Nestor is ambitious. They could not end up becoming more different. And I don't know about anybody else, but Canker Canison gives me the frigging creeps.

    14. I like all of Lumley's books, but these three are my favorites. Read them several times. I have a thing for vampire books and while these aren't your traditional Stoker type suckers, it's still a cool story.

    15. Could have been about 200 pages shorter and probably would have been significantly better. So, mind-numbingly boring in some places and decent in others. Not precisely looking forward to the next book, but will probably read it regardless.

    16. There are some interesting spots in the book but there are a lot of points where the book moves really slowly. I kept getting distracted with other books and so it took me a while to finish. I still like the book and will start on the next book in the series.

    17. Forget "Twilight" and Anne Rice's mooning, overly sentimental vampires the Wamphyri are the real deal! They're pure evil, and Harry Keogh is one of the most three-dimensional epic heroes in the history of horror fiction.

    18. The Necroscopes son's growing up in a vampire controlled world. One chooses good, the other to become a vampire. They are on a collision course.

    19. Another great book by Lumley. Keeps the vampire story going with new and fascinating twists and turns. Never a dull moment with a Lumley book

    20. For all the Vampire lovers, here's one better. It's science fiction with our beloved damned. Just a great new way of bringing it all together

    21. I have read much of Lumleys work but enjoy the necroscope series the most. The mix of science ,metaphysics and horror are hypnotic and hard to put down once started
