This is just as addictive a read as Luck in the Shadows, with plenty of action and adventure, this time concentrating way more on the necromancer plot that was the first half of Luck (but later was taken over by the Leran plot). The creepiness aspect was excellent, and this is a much darker-feeling book than Luck was.

At the same time, the character development is so excellent. I loved the slow growth of the romance, which was sweet and touching compared to so many romantic subplots. I don't often get wrapped up in romance plots, but this is one of those stories that had me getting in to seeing the two of them together. There was so much emotional investment with both their relationship and the tension of seeing the heroes win over the villains. I was happy that Beka Cavish earned a stronger role in here. It's always good to see strong women in fantasy, and while she doesn't get as big a role as the male crew, she does serve as a good counter-narrative.
