Book Review: Necromancing the Stone by Lish McBride

Warning: This book review contains spoilers for the book Hold Me Closer Necromancer. Read on with caution.

When we last saw Sam, he was just learning about his necromancy skills, and inheriting all of Douglas' stuff including his creepy house and powers. Now living in the large house, with Frank as his assistant and Brooke as his ghostly guide, the three are getting ready for Ramon (now a were-bear) to move in with them. Of course, James (Douglas' pukis- also passed on to Sam) is there to help.

Douglas' sudden death should have made things better for the supernatural populations in Seattle. With help from the werewolf clan, including Sam's awesome girlfriend Brid, things are getting better. However strange things are afoot at the Circle-K, and his new normal is now peppered with sudden deaths and meetings with new friends.
Necromancing the Stone is one of those funny/ horrifying/ creepy books that will make you laugh and maybe freak out just a bit. Sam is really an awesome guy, and it is easy to see why his friends are so loyal to him. Sam has a lot to deal with, especially since he wants to use his powers for good, and it's not always easy to do the right thing. One of the best parts of the book is the look into the past with James, and how his relationship with Douglas started.

If you like your paranormal books with a bit of humor you should check out this book. While you can understand and enjoy Necromancing the Stone with out reading Hold Me Closer Necromancer, I would totally recommend the first book first. Both books take a humorous spin on werewolves, gnomes, Big Foot and other cryptids and will scare you while you laugh.

I'll see you @ the library!
