Victorian London: For five years, Charlotte (Charlie) Holloway has lived as a boy in the slums. But when one theft too many gets her arrested, her only means of escape lies with a dead man. Charlie hasn't raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time, her father banished her. This time, she brings even more trouble upon herself.

People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her. 

Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly "made" creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world - Charlotte - but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he's been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will, and for an organization she doesn't trust? 

Because Lincoln and his ministry might be just as dangerous as the madman they're hunting.

  • Solid read!

    By Sanguine Dahl
    Solid read. Grabs your attention at the very start. Sizzles down in the middle but then gets interesting toward the end.
  • Captivating story

    By wsdeub
    This book holds my very interest in fantasy mystery. I chose to read this book on the hopes of achieving my daily reading goals. Surprisingly, I couldn’t stop reading the book. I finished reading the book after few hours. The storyline line was engrossing. I was totally immersed in the book. Trust me this book is a must read!. Unfortunately, only Book 1 was free and after reading, it drives you with urges to buy and read the the other 10 parts of the book. Sadly, I don’t have $4.99 for each other part of the book.
  • Thrilling!!! Love it!!!

    At first I had a hard time getting into the book but once I read further the more thrilling the story had become. I love books that are about supernatural beings and good endings and I cannot wait to read the next book!!!

    This was an amazing book. So far I have read it six times and the thrill is real. i really wish the other books were free so I can read them to. I would recommend this book to young adults for reasons.

  • The Last Necromancer

    By triple diamonds
    This book kept me coming back for more. The characters were well developed to the point where I could visualize each of them. The little ruffian Charlie was very likable in spite of his street ways. His later transformation only made the story more interesting. The twists and turns in the story were unexpected, as was the ending. I breathed a sigh of relief when cook, Gus, Seth, Charlie and Fitzroy all ended up safe and together. At the very end of the story, Charlie goes to the cemetery to visit her mother's grave and spies two men stealing a corpse. A perfect basis for a sequel. The Last Necromancer is definitely worth reading!

    Decided to check this book out since I had read CJ Archer's Freak House books. I must say this series is my favorite of all the related series. The characters have great personalities and are very entertaining. Can't wait for book 9.
