book coverHold Me Closer, Necromancer
by Lish McBride

“Sam leads a pretty normal life. He may not have the most exciting job in the world, but he’s doing all right until a fast food prank brings him to the attention of Douglas, a creepy guy with an intense violent streak. Turns out Douglas is a necromancer who raises the dead for cash and sees potential in Sam. Then Sam discovers he’s a necromancer too, but with strangely latent powers. And his worst nightmare wants to join forces… or else. Now Sam has an undead friend on his hands and a hot werewolf girl for company. But with just one week to figure things out, Sam needs all the help he can get. Luckily he lives in Seattle, which has nearly as many paranormal types as it does coffee places….” (Enriched Content Provided by Syndetics).

I really enjoyed reading this book. The main character has a quirky sense of humor that I truly enjoyed. I also felt that his attitude and actions matched his age and experience. I hate when characters find out they have extra abilities and immediately know how to use them perfectly. This doesn’t happen in this book. The plot is funny, suspenseful, and fast paced. I had a great time reading this book, and read the ending twice because I enjoyed it so much. There is no word of sequel, but I truly hope Lish McBride considers it. I didn’t want the story to end.
