The Necromancer’s Seduction
The Necromancer Series, Book One
Mimi Sebastian

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publisher: ImaJinn Books

Cover Artist: Patricia Lazarus

Book Description:


She has never feared the walking dead. It’s the power required to reanimate the dead that startles her, seduces her. The power that dwells inside her…and is growing.

For Professor Ruby Montagne, being a necromancer has brought her nothing but heartache, and she walked away from that part of her life long ago. However, her quiet existence in San Francisco is shattered when she stumbles upon the body of a slain witch, and the supernatural community insists she transform him into a revenant to track the killer. But his murder was just the beginning, and Ruby soon realizes that the stakes are higher than anyone can imagine—and that revenants have nasty minds of their own.

Now demonic creatures have escaped into the human world, and zombies once again walk the streets. For humanity’s sake, Ruby forms an unlikely alliance with a witch, a zombie, and Ewan March, a demon warrior who sets her senses on fire.

She’s always distrusted demons and Ewan is no exception, but circumstances push them closer together, and Ruby not only finds it harder to resist him, she isn’t sure she even wants to. But she suspects his job of patrolling the portal separating humans and demons conceals a dark and deadly past that may consume them both.
With events spiraling out of control, Ruby unravels a plot that not only threatens the human and demon realms, but puts Ruby’s very soul in jeopardy. Because when the dead walk, no one is safe. Especially Ruby.

A_TiffyFit's Review: I'm a supernatural/paranormal/fantasy/romance/crime junkie. I admit it. This book satisfied every itch of my needs. From a bitchy witchy dear friend to a sexier than hell demon to the gore of zombies, this book kept me turning the pages to read on. I liked all of the characters from Adam to Kara to Ewan to Ruby. I even liked the character we only see from Ruby's memories, Cora, her grandmother. 

While it's a recognizable quirk that the heroine is more powerful than she knows, it was still enjoyable to read as Ruby discovers her power and learns more about her grandmother from her new supernatural contacts. I liked how Ruby is, in the human world, unassuming, quiet, and seemingly frustrated/bored/annoyed with the status quo, and yet she is still denying her true nature and self. I couldn't imagine teaching a class while some dead thing is lurking at me! 

I enjoyed watching Ruby grow from timid to strong, her anger growing as she realizes that she's being duped/kept from knowing the full truth of anything. I liked listening in on her conversations with herself as we observe the revenant and zombies. She keeps this thread of humility and compassion that endear her to the reader. 

 I can't talk about the ending without giving something away, but I will tell you this: I keep searching goodreads/amazon/the web for any tidbits/glimpses of the next book. Whoa, baby... that is not how I expected her relationship to turn and ... I want MORE.

I received my copy of THE NECROMANCER'S SEDUCTION from the publisher via Netgalley, for this book tour. The above was my honest, unsolicited opinion.
