Description

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.

    This book is definitely worth a read. The main character Charlie(Charlotte) is strong, powerful, and independent while also carrying some glaring weaknesses that cause her to need the help of others in certain situations. The addition of necromancy in this novel is very intriguing and flows well into the story’s plot-lines but if you are looking for some heavy magic use this book lacks true depth and experimentation or practical application of her magic. I assume the later novels will have a lot more of her powers being tested and used, but for now the book focuses on building the personalities and world view she lives in which in and of itself is amazing and totally worth it.

    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.
