Well . . . not really. He’s pretty tired of getting beat up by everyone and their mother, for one thing, and he can’t help but feel that his new house hates him. His best friend is a werebear, someone is threatening his sister, and while Sam realizes that he himself has a lot of power at his fingertips, he’s not exactly sure how to use it. Which, he has to admit, is a bit disconcerting.
But when everything starts falling apart, he decides it’s time to step up and take control. His attempts to do so just bring up more questions, though, the most important of which is more than a little alarming: Is Douglas really dead?
Almost two years ago, Lish McBride's amazing debut, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer, came out and took us all completely by surprise. From the gorgeous cover and unusual title to the colorful characters and a large number of interesting points of view, everything about it was original and entertaining. It is no wonder I have September 18th circled on my calendar - I can't wait to follow Sam as he delves into a whole new adventure.
What are you guys excited about? Leave me a link and I'll stop by later today.
