Blurb: Edward Grey is no stranger to the undead; since raising his cat as a zombie when he was a child, he and his mentor Mariel have explored and developed his power as a necromancer. Despite everything he’s learned, as a necromancer and a medical student, he’s never encountered a ghost.
While Mariel is unreachable in Haiti on mysterious business, a ghost wakes Edward in the middle of the night, claiming to be his grandfather. When the ghost offers to teach him about this different form of undeath, Edward has little choice but to trust the spirit.
After receiving a phone call from a young girl claiming her father is possessed, Edward and his Undead Canadian fiancé, Kit, must travel to an acreage in Kingston…Ontario.
The haunting proves far more complicated than Edward could ever have guessed, and he finds himself pitted against an ancient evil determined to engulf everyone on the farm.
Edward’s love and connection to Kit will be tested, and his necromancy stretched to his limits as he has to find—and destroy—a twisted spirit more powerful than anything he’s ever encountered.
Review: This is the continuation of the adventures of necromancer Edward and his zombie fiancé, Kit. Edward is moving on from zombies to ghosts in this installment, and his mentor and protector, Mariel, is nowhere to be found. Oh, he knows where she is, but she is not making contact easy. Sadly, Edward is way out of his element in this new and unexpected segment to his paranormal abilities, and poor Kit is just as unsettled.
I liked this book, a lot. It answered a few of the questions I had at the end of book one, especially about what happens to Kit once Edward dies, which really bothered me in the first story. I know Kit is already dead, but Edward is his everything. And it also answered why Kit was so different from other zombies. I loved the answers.
I was thrilled with the growth that Edward makes in his abilities and how he did it mostly on his own. Edward is a brave man; he does the right thing even if it scares the crap out of him. As was the same with the other stories, there is a lot of levity to make this more of a fun and suspenseful story, as opposed to horror. Don’t get me wrong, it does get a little tense, but you know at the end that Edward and Kit will prevail.
My only confusion was how a ghost and the man he sometimes possesses could have “feelings” for each other. Considering this is a series concerning the romantic relationship between a living, but not breathing, zombie and his human lover, I guess anything can happen, and in this series, it usually does. Highly recommended for those who love some entertaining paranormal mysteries and a splash of romance.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
