With the defeat of the
evil Douglas behind him, Sam LaCroix is getting used to his new life.
Okay, so he hadn’t exactly planned on being a powerful necromancer with a
seat on the local magical council and a capricious werewolf
sort-of-girlfriend, but things are going fine, right?
Well . . . not
really. He’s pretty tired of getting beat up by everyone and their
mother, for one thing, and he can’t help but feel that his new house
hates him. His best friend is a werebear, someone is threatening his
sister, and while Sam realizes that he himself has a lot of power at his
fingertips, he’s not exactly sure how to use it. Which, he has to admit, is a bit disconcerting.
when everything starts falling apart, he decides it’s time to step up
and take control. His attempts to do so just bring up more questions,
though, the most important of which is more than a little alarming: Is
Douglas really dead?
I loved Lish's first book so much, so I'm desperately waiting for this one. I might have to do a re-read of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer before so I remember what happened. :) I love how Lish is able to mix humour with horror. Sure, things aren't always going well with Sam, but it shows he's got guts and spine to crack jokes in the face of death.
