Author: James J. Crofoot
Thomas now views his magic as less than good, but he must raise one more army. This one not of his creation though. For the first time he learns fear of the undead. More than ever, he longs to see the waters of the great sea to the west. Will he find peace there? Will Christina and he find a home with the people of the shores? Maybe. But, maybe he’ll have to fight magic darker than his own to keep his new home.
Maybe he’ll have to fight magic so dark that even a half demon witch fears it and must help.
After reading this book, I’ve officially figured necromancers are pretty darn awesome. Thomas is a necromancer, and he’s pretty good at it. He’s struggling with the nature of his powers though, especially when he’s forced to use it for something darker than he thought possible.
I liked Christina even more than I liked Thomas. She’s a strong female character – the kind you barely come across in fantasy novels. She manages to stand her own in the face of danger.
A good book with an interesting plot. A little darker than the fantasy I usually read, but I liked it.
