Then one day his life turns upside down when he crosses paths with the local necromancer — a guy called Douglas, who recognises Sam as a fellow necromancer with latent powers.
And all of a sudden an entire — hitherto hidden — supernatural world opens up for Sam. Unfortunately for Sam, Douglas is not the type of person who likes to share his territory. One week to discover how come no one has told him he is a necromancer; one week to find out family secrets and who bound his powers up and why; one week to tap into his powers and learn to use them. Meanwhile, villain Douglas carries on with his villainy by doing villainous things.
One of them leads to the kidnapping of Brid, a young girl who is set to be the future Alpha of the local pack of powerful werepeople. It has several things I love: a snarky, self-deprecating, under-powered at least to start with lead character; a powerful, strong, independent female character; a surreal, quirky tone; necromancy, which if you ask me, is severely underrepresented in the supernatural world; a very cool focus on the friendships the main character has with his best buds Ramon, Frank and Brooke.
I had several problems with the novel: from the lack of a focused narrative and changing point of view AKA head hoping; lack of internal logic to the very tone of the novel which tried too hard for surreal and quirky and which I felt, missed the mark. Starting with the narrative. From flipping burgers to raising people from the dead Lish McBride grew up in the Pacific Northwest. It rains a lot there, but she likes it anyway.
She spent three years away while she got her MFA in fiction from the University of New Orleans, where she managed to survive the hurricane.
She enjoys reading, having geek-laden conversations about movies, comics, and zombies with her friends, and of course trying to wear pajamas as much as humanly possible. She lives happily in Mountlake, WA, with her family, two cats, and one very put-upon Chihuahua. Morris Award.
