Publisher's Summary

Resurgence, the second book in horror author Brian Lumley's best-selling Necroscope series, Necroscope: The Lost Years

Harry Keogh, the Necroscope, the man who can talk to the dead, and Earth's greatest vampire hunter, has been searching for his wife and infant son gone missing during Harry's war against the vampires. This obsession has left him open to subtle influence by an ancient vampire, Radu. Entombed in amber, trapped in undeath, Radu plans for his resurrection and plots the destruction of other vampires who might challenge his supremacy.

Thus, Radu's enemies are now Harry's - and Harry cannot properly defend himself. His powers - his deadspeak and his ability to transport himself through the Mobius Continuum - are locked away in the recesses of his vampire-clouded mind. But Harry is not without allies, living and dead. 

E-Branch, the psychic spy organization, is worried about Harry. So is Harry's long-dead Ma, and the ancient philosopher and prophet Nostradamus, whose centuries-old quatrain make eerie sense in the modern world.

Right now, Harry Keogh doesn't even know he's the Necroscope. But Earth's teeming dead won't let him forget them for long - and won't let him forget that Radu and his vampire kind are humanity's deadliest enemies.

When a MASTER MASTERS his MASTERY

THE LOST YEARS, vol. 1 & 2, are some of the most intricate, multiplotted, and tightly woven stories I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Take EVERYTHING you love about the original Necroscope® series, and the Vampire World series and merge them into two incredible books that will leave fans fully enthralled for the rest of lives. (like they weren't already)

Joshua Saxon's vocal performance is as praiseworthy for his audio rendition, as Bob Eggleton's artwork is to Brian Lumley's book covers.

"The Lost Years" is truly Masterful Work!

The Audio Saga Continues

Master Lumley's Necroscope series never fails to entertain me after 30+ years of being a fan of his literature.

The complex depth of his words must be read to fully appreciate, but here, at the hands (or should I say vocal cords?) of Joshua Saxon, life is given to the words, depth is given to the characterizations, and you can sit back and enjoy all 23 hours of Joshua taking you on a journey through the ever expanding world of the Necroscope series.

The world of the dead and those who can influence the dead to do their bidding find a unique spot in the world. layer upon layer is peeled back in this now 17+ book saga and this just adds to the Tolkien-ness of that journey.

Joshua has the unique soft voice that makes you want to hear him read more and more, time fades and slips past you when he narrates with his distinctive inflections and you can hear the breath of life being given to each character.

The cadence of his pronunciation and enunciation is to me, exquisite! I have many audiobooks in my library and listen to Joshua's voice is all but spoiling me to other narrator's.

The only comparison I can give his voice is to that of a soft spoken Tim Curry-esque quality! Again, you want to hear him speak, you want to close your eyes and feel the life, or death, of each character as he speaks the words of my favorite living author who speaks and writes, so highly of the dead!

Big fan of The Necroscope series.

Harry Keogh is by far one of the most interesting characters ever created. Brian Lumley is up there with J.K. Rowland and GRRM in my opinion.

Alot of setup, quick wrap up.

I have been an adamant fan of Necroscope series and Brian Lumley since high school and have gone out of my way to find and collect his novels. This is the first time I got to listen to the second half of this story. And as long as it was, it felt like a waste of time. (Spoilers ahead) The hypnotized Harry plot gets old and drug out way too much to the point that I yelled at the book at one point. Radu is built up so much only to be put down so fast in the end. And the final confrontations with the other vampires is solved in one chapter, no real face to face confrontation. Both clan threats are solved by just blowing them up. The father mutated vampire in the castle never makes an actual appearance, he's forever a voice that just blows up with everyone else. And everything again is erased at the end so again makes everything pointless as if it never needed to happen. I suggest reading the other books and skipping these.

Another Brilliant Episode in The Necroscope Saga

Once again Brian Lumley has pulled out all the stops to bring us yet another great part of the Necroscope story.

Joshua Saxon again brings everything alive with his exceptional narration and storytelling.

He brings us Vampires, Vamphyri and Werewolves. Plus blood, guts and gore aplenty.

Then he tops it off with a love story. All of which is real, or is it?

I can’t wait for the next audiobook.

Lumley writes Werewolves!

Since the Lost Years books started arriving on audible I've been waiting to see what the arrival of the series arch antagonist Radu would be like. And Resurgence does not disappoint! The Saga of Harry & Bonnie Jean comes to a satisfying if melancholy end and Lumley delivers with all the style, the gore, and the gusto fans of his work have come to expect (and love).

As always everything is rooted in a sort of fantastic realism that makes the supernatural elements easy to believe and makes the world convincingly vivid and real. The cast is broad but no character is one dimensional. And best of all, after several books of watching a drugged, hypnotically programmed and greatly de-powered version of our hero Harry Keogh, we get to see him return to himself and bring justice to some of the most genuinely evil creatures in fiction as only he can.

Special mention as always to Joshua Saxon who is in my mind now and forevermore The Voice Of Lumley. As someone who listens to stories when they work the narrator is incredibly important when it comes to my personal experience of the work. My experience of Brian Lumley's fiction (now over ten novels and 4 collections of short stories) has in fact been entirely in audiobook form.

Saxon's sonorous and powerful readings have become inseparable from Lumley's work for me: a perfect marriage of narrating style and authorial tone.

All in all this was a satisfying and thorough end to a very enjoyable diversion on the path of Harry Keogh, delivered in style.

Another Classic Necroscope Tale Superbly Told

Necroscope: Resurgence is another excellent chapter in the stunning Necroscope saga. Lumley is one of my favourite writers and his work is constantly brilliant. This volume continues the story of Harry's "lost years" set just before The Source. Just like the other books in the series, Resurgence is intricately plotted with fantastic action and gruesome horror.
Joshua Saxon continues to excel as the new voice of Necroscope. I love his tone and delivery. It's dark and sinister without ever being cheesy or over dramatic. He is a natural storyteller who is totally perfect for this series. He has been my favourite audiobook narrator since I first listened to his wonderful work on Lumley's short story collection Haggopian.
Another quality presentation from Crossroad Press.
Highly recommended.

More to the tale

Part 2 of the missing pieces.
One of the most darkly romantic moments I've ever experienced in fiction occur in this part of the story.
Another example of Brian Lumley's ability to create a story that weaves genre lines into a web of intrigue and another example of Joshua Saxon's ability to lend the universe vocal life.
As usual I highly recommend this and all other of Lumley's works so forgive my bias!
