Genres: Dark Fantasy, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
When eighteen-year-old Judy Hudson discovers she’s a necromancer and sees first-hand the pain her powers can cause the dead, she just wants to deny who she is. The zombie plague is long over. She wants to find a more normal life, but that’s a challenge when a beautiful otherworldly man, who claims to be her guardian, saves her life.
Judy tries to set right the harm she inflicted on a spirit she raised, but new zombies attack—zombies raised from among the long-time dead. Someone else just like her is out there, and he’s not trying to set anything right. To save her own life, and protect the innocent inhabitants of the nearby town who’ve become her friends, Judy has to figure out who’s raising the dead and why. She must also learn to control the darkness inside her—a seductive darkness that promises her power beyond her wildest dreams.
Kim writes urban fantasy for anyone who longs to discover they are extraordinary. She writes about hopefulness and determination, and about heroes who push through extraordinary situations and obstacles, one step at a time. Magical friends and gorgeous guys help, or hinder, in one adventure after another.
When not writing, revising, or thinking about writing, Kim gardens, plays with her dog, chats on social media, catches up with friends or cooks an Indian feast. She is a member of Writers Victoria, Romance Writers of Australia, The Alliance of Independent Authors, and a certified chocoholic.
Kim grew up in Birmingham, UK, studied medieval history and psychology at Adelaide University in South Australia and has worked all over Australia and in London. She now lives with her husband and an adorable Cocker Spaniel in Melbourne, Australia.
Favorite Lines “What if I make the wrong choices?” You will learn from them, and try again.”
“Do you know how beautiful you are?”
“I would get the balance right. I would learn and understand this gift. In time, I would love it.
I belonged here. This was who I am.”
This was a dark and suspenseful book. Judy/Meagan is a necromancer who was left alone when she was a baby. She ends up in a orphanage. The nuns and priest are so horrible to her! Then one day everything changes when she meets Purah. He tells her about what's inside of her. Takes her to a place so she can work on her necromancer powers. All of the secrets of her past slowly come to light and then she must face off against the power hungry man who killed her father.
My favorite Character was Purah I would love to know more about him.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
