His love will give them life or destroy them…

Ward de’Ath used to the think that nothing could be more terrible than death. Now he realizes there are worse things. Like his never-ending hunger for blood. Even if he conquers the unbearable cravings that drive him headlong toward destruction, he’s a wanted man with a bleak future.

Assassin Celia Carlyle learns she is the only one who can protect Ward from disaster. She loves him–she wants to help him, but no one can tell her how to save him from himself. And the confusing voices in her head scream to let him go.

But Ward’s dark trials keep mounting. A malevolent evil is rising in the land, threatening to unleash horror upon the world. The only way Ward can defeat it, and have the chance to marry Celia, is by accepting his fate and becoming the one thing he swore he would never become…

I’ve enjoyed reading books in this definitely different paranormal YA/NA series and this is possibly the last book in it. Whilst the author does fill in background information relating to what happened in the previous books, I recommend reading them in order as things develop through the books an... ...more

This is perhaps the darkest book in The Chronicles of A Reluctant Necromancer, and it's a very fast read.

Ward and Celia take off exactly where they left off in the previous book - on the run from Ward's grandfather. There are a few threads and players but what it boils down to is: the crew passe... ...more

Things really move forward in this installment! It feels like the final book of the series but it's also left open enough for more adventures.

Love it!!!! This series has been an amazing one. I like the topic and the way the story grows and gets complicated. Ward is an adorable and funny character and the interaction with Celia is great.

About the author

Melanie Card

Melanie has always been drawn to story telling and can't remember a time when she wasn’t creating a story in her head. Her early stories were adventures with fairies and dragons and sword swinging princesses. Today she continues to spin tales of magic in lands near and far, while her cat sits on the edge of her desk and supervises. When she’s not writing, you can find her pretending to be other people thanks to her local community theatre groups.
