Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride - Review

If only Sam was better at potato hockey, the day would have been very different. But a broken tail light leads an unhappy customer to Sam - and that customer is Douglas, a powerful necromancer with a fondness for violence. And he thinks Sam might be useful - as a partner.

Douglas gives Sam one week to figure out how to use his latent powers. But Sam has no idea about this OR how to deal with Douglas, who doesn't seem very pleased to find another necromancer in his community.

Add to this a talking head, a caged half-were, some witches, a zombie panda, and a best friend on a skateboard (well, it is Seattle after all) and you'll get a hint of why I loved this book so much. It's totally original, funny, fast paced, and creepy all at the same time. With song titles as chapter heads. Loved it.

Oh, and it came out today!
