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 big 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 night, Dylan’s old friend comes calling.
But he’s not the same boy that everyone once knew.
The strangest eyes, the lingering whispers … messages sent through the night … 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.
Vampyrrhic Rites is the follow-up to Simon Clark’s ceaselessly terrifying novel Vampyrrhic. It is a chilling horror-thriller that brings the well-known terror of vampires to the hitherto unspoiled lands of Northern England.
