Grier Woolworth spends her nights weaving spooky tales of lost souls and tragedies for tourists on the streets of downtown Savannah. Hoop skirt and parasol aside, it’s not a bad gig. The pay is crap, but the tips keep the lights on in her personal haunted mansion and her pantry stocked with ramen.
Life is about as normal as it gets for an ex-necromancer hiding among humans. Until the society that excommunicated Grier offers her a second chance at being more than ordinary. Too bad no one warned her the trouble with being extraordinary is it can get you killed.
Warning: This book contains one ex-con/ex-heiress with a pet zombie parakeet who lives next door to her ex-army/ex-crush. Brace yourselves, we’re talking more exes than a pirate treasure map here.
Had a bit of a slow start but after discovering the whole story I can see why. So much to uncover in this series and I’m excited to move onto the next book.
Pretty obsessed with Necromancer stories, and it’s rare I stumble upon one. Had to give this one a read as soon as I read the title. The slow build of the tension and comfortable lull the main character goes through are palpable by the reader. I went through many emotions along with her as her fate unfolds. All of the relationships throughout the story as rock solid. It was comforting to see that even in magical worlds, they suffer from the childhood crush and overbearing moms.
