The world has changed in the several decades since magic was reintroduced. For some, it is better, for others not so much. Connor Night is dying of cancer and he is one of the few Necromancers currently living. He and his partner (Danelle AKA Dani) along with his reanimated corpse, Evan, do odd jobs. Indeed, they are quite odd and often involve breaking the law. This time, Connor and his crew get drawn in to an unexpected job and the outcome is not quite what they had in mind.

more of a very short story; it didn't really have any of the elements of the first story that I really liked... none of the main character lucking out or better working his way through difficult odds with ingenuity. I thought it brought up more questions than it answered.

Great prequel

Great twist on magic coming back to the world. Gritty stories, reminds me a lot of a more contemporary take on the Shadowrun stories. Well written. Please don't hesitate to read this series.

This was a good novella, a fine intro to the rest of the series. This story explains how Conor acquires the special dice he's used so devastatingly in the other books. It's will worth reading.
