Publisher's Summary

Harry Keogh is moving on. Though the search for his missing wife and child continues, his heart now lies in Edinburgh with Bonnie Jean - a beautiful Scottish werewolf whose friendly pack and flourishing pub have given him a place he can almost call home.
But from the rocky heights of Sicily, the diabolical Francezci brothers plot the wolf-pack's destruction; and down in the terrible Pit beneath Le Manse Madonie, an ancient evil schemes.
The vampires conspire. They reach a decision. They choose a vector. Mafia thug Mike Milazzo is no good to anyone, anytime, anywhere…which makes him perfect. Disposable.
The brothers infect him with a deadly poison - an engineered plague that even a werewolf could never survive - and they offer him a terrible bargain: successfully contaminate the wolf-pack, and receive the antidote. Fail, and die!
Mike has everything to lose. So does Harry Keogh. But the Necroscope lost everything once before, and he isn't about to do it again....

Good book bad reading

What would have made Necroscope: The Plague-Bearer better?

A better recording.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The recording itself was good and clear and the narrator was good to a point, but it was when he started to do the voice for the characters that everything went astray the ancients did not match the parts of the country the creators are from and seemed a little out of time.It seems to me that the reader has used voice references from old recordings that do not match the characters making them seem older or younger than they should be or using old-fashioned accents that do not really exist anymore.The whole reading would have been much better if the reader had not tried to do the voice and regional accents and just stuck to reading the book in his own voice


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The disappointment was bad, I was so exited to see a Necroscope book and the reading meant that I did not finish the book luckily I have the paperback so I already know the story.


Any additional comments?

The shame of it is that I love these books and the first one is my most favorite book ever.

Clueless narration

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who doesn't have a clue, like the narrator, of British accents and how to pronounce place names.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Gave up long before then.


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Santa Maria?

Someone English. The mispronunciation of place names was irritating, but his Scottish accent was laughable. Worse of all: Harry Keogh is not Irish. He is from the North East of England. He speaks with a north eastern English accent. A little bit of research would have surely told the producers this.


Any additional comments?

Overall, this was little better than a Libre Vox recording.
