|Plot Summary of Necroscope: Deadspawn|
Tor, Dec 2003, 26.95, 428 pp.
The good news is that Necroscope Harry Keogh has begun recovering his abilities to deadspeak and to enter the Mobius Continuum; the bad news is that an evil seed is taking root inside of him. His friends notice that Harry is changing into a Wamphyri vampire. Harry tries to keep on living as he always has, but obviously the growth inside is becoming more powerful by the moment. Finally his former allies decree the solo Necroscope is a menace that they feel must be eliminated as an enemy combatant.
Harry goes on the lam planning to depart this realm for the source world of the vampires. However, he feels he must finish his current task, to destroy the maniac who possesses deadspeak even while his former allies want to destroy him before the vampire inside him takes control.
