NECROMANCING THE STONE
In her debut, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer, McBride did a brilliant job introducing her slacker/college dropout hero and his circle of friends as they violently discover the supernatural world. Now, with her series second, this talented author has truly proven her mettle. Sardonic humor, a darkly offbeat plot and believable characters make Sam’s journey one filled with heart, humor and somewhat gory chills! McBride is a true find whose books deserve a prime spot on your TBR pile.
Sam Lecroix is adjusting to his new life as a powerful necromancer. But his relationship with his sort-of girlfriend, who happens to be a werewolf, and his position on the local magical council are providing their own fair share of challenges. As Sam continues to get into scrapes and his sister starts receiving threats, he begins to realize that he must take control of both his powers and the deteriorating conditions surrounding him.
