Lish McBride’s urban fantasy debut Hold Me Closer, Necromancer garnered rave reviews from critics and fans for its hilarity and madcap action. In this brilliant sequel, neophyte necromancer Sam LaCroix is still getting used to being on the local magical council, not to mention having a werewolf girlfriend and a shapechanging feline butler. When his sister begins receiving threatening messages and a dead body surfaces, Sam wonders if his old nemesis Douglas is responsible. There’s only one problem- Douglas is dead.

Listener Opinions

    " Both of these books have been so well written and so much fun to read, I truly hope there's another to come. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donalyn | 2/7/2014

    " I ditched every book I was reading when the ARC for NtS arrived. Everything I loved about Hold Me Closer, Necromancer returns in this second book-- action, great characters (with cool powers), humor and tender moments. In particular, I like how readers become attached to the secondary characters as much as Sam does. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melinda | 2/1/2014

    " I'm not sure what happened here, but this was a real disappointment for me. Everything that felt so fresh and alive in the first book -- which I loved -- has somehow gone flat in the sequel. I felt like a lot of the book was spent essentially reintroducing various characters and concepts from the first, and I found myself skimming the last 100 pages. Sad -- I had really been looking forward to this one. "

    " Gotta love a supernatural teen author who likes to throw around Seattle references. And those gnomes and Minotaurs? Goodness. Adorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindi Ridgeway | 1/10/2014

    " Love! I was afraid the book was getting into re-hash territory for a minute there, but it turned out to be almost as awesome as the first book. Still loving the characters & their world, even if Sam is a bit whiny at times. Can't wait to read what happens next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 12/20/2013

    " I still love the characters, but there are plot elements that I saw coming from a mile away and thought were kind of lame from a mile away. I was satisfied at the end, though, so this is probably more like 3.5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 11/4/2013

    " Just as good as the first, maybe better actually :) I love Taco. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Additeenlibrarian | 10/9/2013

    " I liked the first book better because it had more ensemble cast action and dialogue. I find Sam to be at his best when surrounded by and interacting with his friends. This second volume picked up speed after a while. I enjoyed the second half more than the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aydrea | 9/29/2013

    " OMG I love Sam, he is hilarious & adorable! In fact I pretty much love his whole crew & I love Taco! The plot was pretty good, hope there will be more books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadia | 8/10/2013

    " This is such a fun series, I'm so sad I'm caught up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarahz | 6/26/2013

    " Really enjoyed the ways the author expanded on the world. It was really funny and had good character work. Loved the introduction to the mansion's more unusual inhabitants/security team members. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted Nimmo | 6/4/2013

    " Love the Gnomes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 5/21/2013

    " Another fun read, sequel to Hold Me Closer, Necromancer. It's light, fluffy urban fantasy for teens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shana | 5/18/2013

    " I believe three words sum up this novel 'twinkle the destroyer'. Lish mcbride has done it again, and that is saying a lot for a sequel. This book absolutely rocked as hard as the first one, and may have been even better. I will say one more thing about it, 'thundergnome'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aisha | 4/16/2013

    " I don't know what I loved most: Minion, Gnome ChompSky, or James. All in all, I enjoyed the hell out of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 12/18/2012

    " A fun read. This author has a great voice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/13/2012

    " Excellent. Even better than the first one which is rare with sequels. I want to live in that house. I love Sam and the crazy characters that surround him. I really really hope there are more in the this series. So so good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorena | 11/17/2012

    " Continuing cleverness and good times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Desmond | 10/26/2012

    " A great series that I would highly recommend - magic, action, drama and a main protagonist that grows in character with each book. "
