Necroscope IV: Deadspeak by Brian Lumley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The fourth Necroscope book has us step back and lick our wounds from the last, with Harry being massively underpowered and kinda desperate. It's a nice change.
That being said, this book has all the goodies of the previous ones. Expansive dives into the vampire villains, iffy allies, great history, and lots and lots of the helpful dead.
Where this kinda read like a formula of the previous books, I didn't really mind because it was a fun ride. The scope is always larger than I expect out of any vampire books, easily sliding around huge time periods or places (or other worlds) and falling back to where it is most grounded: spy stuff and defeating overpowered enemies. :)
Oh, and this is a great way to enjoy spooktober. :)
