Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Vampires, sons borns of mortals, thralls, crones, trogs, the undead, shape-shifters, leeches, hags, flyers, cartilage creatures--all are characters in this diverting if drawn-out tale of the twin sons of Harry Keough. The late Keough (previously seen in Nec ro scope and four other outings), a telepathic vampire hunter able to speak with the dead, has passed the torch to his unwitting sons, Nestor and Nathan, who not only think their father was a humble gypsy but also mistakenly believe that all the vampires in the world were destroyed long ago. The young men--one seemingly simple and innocent, the other strong and fiercely intelligent--are separated when their settlement on Sunside is attacked by vampire warriors from Starside known as Wamphyri. As their personalities undergo drastic transformations and Keough's legacy reemerges in new and very strange surroundings, each must struggle to retain his identity as evil forces threaten. Naturally, one twin proves more successful than the other. While the brothers' travails are somewhat compelling, as is the course of their love for the same woman, it is the villains here--Wratha, the Unrisen and Maglore of Runemanse--who are bound to engage readers most.

From Library Journal

This fantasy inaugurates a new cycle in the author's "Necroscope" series, which chronicles the war between vampires and the Szgany people, fought in a world ravaged by the remnant of a deteriorated black hole and divided into Starside and Sunside. The story here concerns Nathan and Nestor, twin sons of vampire-slayer Harry Keogh of the previous novels. Separated by the recently renewed vampire attacks, the brothers travel the world, each seeking to understand the mysterious gifts their heritage has given them. Meanwhile, the vampires mass for a civil war that threatens to overwhelm the Szgany as well. The many tantalizing references to events in previous novels make this book a bit confusing, but libraries where the series has been popular will find the new title in demand.

Anne Rice vampires, beware. The vampires are poetic, yet savages, brutal savages. And sorry to say Rice fans, the vampires here are scarier. This book begins right were the last book left off in the vampire world. With the original Necroscope dead, all hope is lost. But left through his legacy are his twin sons. This book will smash emotions through you with excitment, horror, and relief. Lumley's writing has progessed to nothing but perfect, far better then his original necroscope serises. Buy it, and be pleased.

Blood Brothers starts the reader on a totally new adventure which ties completely with the first series of books(The Necroscope Series). I was completely engulfed in this book from page one and did not put it down until it was finished. Of course, after finishing the book, I was stuck waiting to find out what would happen next. Luckily for all who will read this, you can now get all of the books in the complete series at almost any book store. I would suggest this book and the whole Necroscope series to anyone who has a unquenchable thirst for vampire literature. Of all the books on the market, this series has the most believable storyline. Could it actually happen? Jump right in! The first will definitely not be your last

Stumbled on Lumley's trilogy while searching for something
else. Became intrigued with Blood Brother's synopsis so
carried it home for a read. Finished the book in two days and moved on to number 2 and 3 in the trilogy in short order. It has been 2 1/2 weeks and all three are done and I wonder who will take me on another quest with Noah and friends??..or one like it...Never read Necroscope series so am headed there now..hope it ranks up there with this series though I do not know how Mr. Lumley can expand my horizons any further or give me more pleasure than he already has.

I just read this after reading the first 5 books of the Necroscope series.

I must confess that I was not prepared to like this book. I'd read the first 5 books of the series and was a little bit tired of the whole plight of the characters. Yes, vampires are evil and the humans are good. However, since this books takes place in a different world than ours and involved new characters, I found myself really enjoying this book once I got past the first 100 pages.

Since this book is cotinuation of the story of the Necroscope, if you haven't read the first 5 books, you're going to be a little bit lost. Seriously, why pick up a book in the middle of the series. If you're new to this, go to the beginning and start there. You won't enjoy this one as much. I'm on the next book and loving it.

This is the first of the best series I have ever read. Lumley creates a world and characters so rich and believable that one wonders if such a place really exists and the author is writing from experience. I read all three in the series, one right after another, and wished the last page would never come. All three books in the series rate a definite 10++.

First, let me say that I have been a Lumley fan since I picked up my first Necroscope book years and tears ago. Vampires are not my favorite genre, they tend to give me nightmares, but this series is just so deliciously evil that I had to give it a go.
After several years with very little time to read, I am once again taking a good book to bed with me at night. I am trying valiently to stay interested in Blood Brothers. I have read all the other reviews of this book, and my complaint is totally different from all the others. I consider the characters to be riveting, the story good (so far) and the visions conjured up by Lumley's words to be great. I think, however, that he could have been many times more effective with many times fewer exclamation marks and other punctuation constants, such as ............
I am sure some of you Lumley fans will rake me over the coals for this opinion, but, honestly, I cannot believe that every other sentence deserves an exclamation mark, and I get downright worn out after reading a chapter or two.
Again, I am sure that to many of you the Great Man can do no wrong, and to you I apologize for daring to criticize what I see as an unpleasant (new) habit. I realize I am not an author of any kind, and probably am not fit to shine his shoes as far as fame goes, but I am entitled to voice my opinion. C'mon guys, isn't too much sometimes just too much?
