VAMPYRRHIC RITES by Simon Clark. Forest Hill, MD; CD Publications; 2008. 1st US hardcover edition (preceeded by a UK hardcover from Hodder & Stoughton several years ago, now OOP) & true first SIGNED/LIMITED edition.
Vampyrrhic Rites is the long-awaited sequel to Vampyrrhic by Simon Clark — this time, we've got more vampires, more blood, and more sheer terror!
Lazarus Deep is a lake that sits like a blot of darkness in the valley.
Eighteen-year-old Dylan Adams is on the verge of leaving his hometown for a life in the city, but his plans are dramatically changed when his old school friend Luke Spencer goes missing. A search finds nothing. All anyone knows is that he was last seen at Lazarus Deep. Then, in the dead of the night, Dylan's old friend comes calling. But he's not the same boy that everyone once knew.
Once more David Leppington, Bernice Mochardi and Electra Charnwood are drawn together to face the vampiric creatures that are Nosferatu: the undead. The desolate North Yorkshire Moors have held their secret for more than a thousand years. Now it is the turn of Lazarus Deep.
