I’ll break all the rules…
Life as a necromancer is never easy, but when the body of a ghost from my past turns up, inexplicable whole, very dead, and without a soul, I begin to seriously reconsider my choice of profession. What good is a necromancer if I can’t get the dead to speak?
My life has been riddled with moments of sheer stupidity, bad luck and questionable choices, but I’ve never felt like more of a failure than now. At least I’m wanted, right? The vampires want me to raise their progeny. The Lord of the Veil wants me to open a portal for him to escape to the living realm. The police want me to continue solving their murders.
And Detective Connor Kang wants me. Just me. He makes the magic in my blood sing and now I know his true identity and what’s in his heart. But as it turns out, Kang isn’t the only person in my life harbouring a secret.
I need to figure out who or what is capable of destroying souls, rescue a supernatural hostage, and somehow stay alive and out of the clutches of those who would seek to kill or use me. Mom raised me to follow five sacred rules to necromancy, and I’ve faithfully followed every single one.
