    I liked it!

    4.5 stars While I read several reviews where the readers were disppointed in the story, I certainly wasn't. There was a steady buildup from beginning to end. I'm confident that this is just the opening book in a series and that any unresolved issues will be handled in upcoming books. The relationship between Nick and Josiah was satisfying enough for an initial installment and I look forward to reading further.

    Good start to a series with good tension

    The life of Nicolas Littman, an adjunct college professor by hobby and necromancer by birth, just got a little too interesting. All he wanted to do was summon a demon. What could possibly go wrong? Well, it turns out quite a lot. To be fair, all of it may not be his fault. His meddling twin sister Nadia is trying to get him to take his hereditary place in an ancient magical Order. His volunteer student assistant Josiah keeps coming to him for help with his own issues. With Druids, werewolves, and vampires complicating his life right before the end of the semester, poor Nick has his hands full. One of his most endearing qualities is to ignore the obvious; another is to make himself face reality eventually. One of the things that bothered me was, just because he can animate the dead, he never stops to think if he should--at least they are not attached to their souls. The author slowly builds the tension--sexual tension between Nick and Josiah, and fear tension like a horror novel. This is the best part of the book. Having Josiah be in his last year of school is a good reason to keep them from acting on their attraction. The story works best when they banter. It is their interactions that keep the story grounded when everything is going off the rails. We see this from Nick's POV, so it's difficult to know how Josiah feels about everything, especially in the end. When the tension breaks, it's a bit of a letdown. It all has an inevitably to it though. It's a strange HFN, with no one sure if they are happy except to be alive. One presumes this is the beginning to a series, so we'll have to wait to see if this is a relationship that can withstand the challenges and burdens placed on it. I would rate this 3.5 stars.

    Intrigued to try the next...

    First off, I am having a hard time reviewing this book. I really liked the characters, and the book was well-written. I wish that I had gotten to know Josiah a little better, or at least closer to how I got to know Nick so well. I felt that we were in Nick’s head quite a bit, and we didn’t get to see what was going on around him enough, and we didn’t get too much about the paranormal elements. Nick didn’t exactly seem on top of things and reacted instead of planning, I guess would be a better way of stating that. There wasn’t much romance, but there was an interesting plot if a little bit…distant. That’s really the only word I can use to describe it. Overall, I did like this book at least well enough I want to read the second, or at least I hope there is a second. There is a lot of potential. Recommend! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Lots of potential

    Nicholas Littman is a professor by day and a necromancer by night. He's trying to keep a low profile so that he doesn't have to join The Order, but his twin sister is making that decision more complicated. Also, let's not forget his TA, Josiah Wexler who shows up on his doorstep after being bitten and is presenting as a werewolf. Overall, I enjoyed this read, but it started out slow for me. I was hoping to get more into the necromancer side of it, but that didn't happen. I think overall there just wasn't enough plot line for me to really get into this one.
