This was a fun, fast read that I thoroughly enjoyed. The story is both dark and humorous and many of the characters are smart-alecks. Sam is working at Plumpy's and living in a small apartment after dropping out of college. After a scary encounter with a customer, Sam begins to learn about himself and things that his family have hidden from him. Sam has unfortunately come to the attention of Douglas, the strongest necromancer in Seattle. Douglas can't decide whether to train Sam or kill him for being a threat. During Sam's journey of self-discovery he learns that his mother is a witch and his father's uncle is a necromancer. At birth, Sam's mom and uncle bound his powers, so he wouldn't catch Douglas' attention and be allowed to live a normal life. Sam must quickly master his necromancy and use all his wits if he's to survive. I hope there will be a sequel, as I found the characters very engaging.
