This was the best one yet; took it from a horror-espionage story and turned it into a fantasy/horror romp, and that's right up my alley. Good stuff, great setting.

Russia's Ural mountains hide a deadly secret: a supernatural portal. Soviet scientists and ESP-powered spies, in a secret military base, study the portal - and the powerfully evil creatures that emerge fromit, intent on ravaging mankind.
When Jazz Simmons, a british agent sent to infiltrate the base, is captured by the KGP esp-ionage squad and forced through the portal, his last message tells Harry Keogh, necroscope, that the vampires are preparing for a mass invasion.
Harry has only one option: to strike first. He must carry the human-vampire war to the vampires' own lands. But his strongest psychic power will be useless there - what good the power to summon the dead, in a country where nothing ever dies, where every man, woman, and child becomes a half-dad servant of the Vamphyri?

This third book in the Necroscope series takes the horror to a new level -- that of the Vampire's own world of darkness. If you like over-the-top horror with vampires that aren't depressed with their own existence, this is the book for you.

New twist on the Necroscope Vampire story. Harry Keogh takes his battle with the evil Wamphyri to another world, where the foul breed originates!

Ah those Cold War Russians. They always seem to be up to no good, especially in a Lumley's Necroscope tale. Mikhail Simonov, aka Michael "Jazz" Simmons, is a British agent that is sent into Russia's Ural mountains to investigate what he thinks is a new Soviet weapon buried underneath the bedrock of the Perchorsk Pass turns out to be a portal into another world. And what a world it turns out to be. It seems that those pesky vampires didn't just suddenly turn up in Transylvania in the middle ages. Oh, no, no, no. They originated elsewhere in another world and found their way here when they were banished from their world and made to enter the mysterious one-way portal.

Lumley's third chapter of the Necroscope saga is chock full of unique and interesting information on the origins of vampires and I'll be a monkey's uncle if it isn't a fascinating AND entirely plausible to the mind. As much as I loved The Source, I will have to admit that from time to time the info dump cumbersome. With that being said, the premise is so unique and I loved the direction that he took the story. Of course, we have Harry Keough involved as he's looking for his wife and son that have been missing for eight years ever since the final battle with Yulian Bodescu. Harry is sucked into the world of the wamphyri as his search and the events at Perchorsk reveal a common denominator. Necroscope III is the best of the three Necroscopes and that's saying a lot. Looking forward to Part IV.

4 1/2 stars out of 5
