Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride
Yay! I hope. This one wins the Morris award tomorrow! It's such a GOOD paranormal book. Sure there are werewolves and necromancers and witches and harbingers, but the tale is told well. I laughed. And worried. And stayed up really late to finish!
Sam is a college dropout floundering through life. But, then, all because of a game of potato hockey in the alley behind a fast food place, Sam becomes a wanted man by an evil necromancer. Sam isn't sure what's going on, but his close friends help him solve the questions of his heritage. He meets his love interest in a cage in a basement while she is naked. And, no, he isn't dreaming. This book has gene appeal, snakiness, and plenty of moments of darn good writing. Come on, Morris, bring it home to your necromancer!
