THE LAST NECROMANCER by C.J. Archer is available TODAY!
Victorian London: For five years, Charlotte (Charlie) Holloway has lived as a boy in the slums. But when one theft too many gets her arrested, her only means of escape lies with a dead man. Charlie hasn’t raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time, her father banished her. This time, she brings even more trouble upon herself.
People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her.
Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly “made” creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world – Charlotte – but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he’s been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will, and for an organization she doesn’t trust?
Because Lincoln and his ministry might be just as dangerous as the madman they’re hunting.
This is my first C.J. Archer book and I am undeniably and irrevocably hooked! The Last Necromancer has something for everyone- suspense, paranormal fantasy, Victorian London, heart-stopping action, and a dash of romance between a unique heroine and gruff hero (or anti hero even.)
Within these pages I found myself lost in another time, and I stayed up entirely too late two nights in a row to finish reading. (When you have a two year old in your care, your reading time is strictly limited, and they don’t sleep much LOL)
I kept thinking I had all the little secrets and hidden identities figured out, then BAM! A new twist in a direction I never guessed. I like to be kept on my toes, but this was more like on my toe nails! Without a doubt one of my new favorite reads of 2015, pick up this 5 star read at your favorite etailer today!
