Campy fun, a bit on the dark side, featuring an older teen working at a Seattle fast food restaurant. He discovers he's a necromancer wizard type when a local creepy psychotic necromancer finds him after an unfortunate potato hockey game incident. If he's not with the psycho necromancer, he's against him (with a short life expectancy), and our teen must catch up fast to this new world of creepy powers. His fast food restaurant pals aid and abet him in this endeavour, even the one who has been murdered by the evil dude and who is now just a talking head. But a head with a determinedly tough and can do attitude. It's one part Bruce Campbell campy fun, one part dark urban fantasy, and one part teen novel lighthearted adventure with trusty pals. 100% enjoyable. Urban fantasy readers should check it out, teens and adults alike.
It'll be a series, but the book stands alone and doesn't leave you hanging over a cliff, thank god.
