It always feels like a breath of fresh air when I read a book I enjoy and don't have to talk myself into finishing.  The Necromancer's Prison combines three of my favorite genre's:  YA, science fiction, and fantasy. 

My Thoughts:
This book was such a fun read for me.  One of the reasons for this is due to how consistent the pace and story-telling is through-out the entire book.  I've read many books that tend to get a little slow in the middle until the big climax or reveal at the end when the sto

I love when I discover new authors that I loved to read. This book is a perfect mix of YA, science fiction and fantasy. It mixes aliens with magic, and a lot of action, in a way that I wanted to jump into it and be a part of the story.

Emily is your perfect (anti-)heroine, in the way that she's a stubborn teen that runs toward danger to help someone in need, even if that someone doesn't like her very much and isn't very friendly with her. Buy she pays no heed to that and still confront a multitu

*We received this book in exchange for an honest review*

Emily Murphy thought the worst thing that would happen to her that day was being late to her college entrance exam. She never expected the exam to get interrupted by a kidnapping of her classmate and the killing of her teacher by mysterious cloaked people. Emily runs toward the danger, determined to save her classmate, Quinn.

Despite getting hurt, Emily is ready to go after whatever took Quinn away. Most students run to protection, but Mason

Thank you to the author and publisher for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

This was a great read! The characters were extremely well written. Emily, while not my favorite character, was brave and had a strong moral compass. That she rushed into danger to save someone made her immediately likable. She had a tough exterior that masked a lot of emotion and made her very interesting.

She was joined by another classmate, Mason, who was my favorite character. That guy was

The Necromancer’s Prison is a fast-paced fantasy adventure for teen readers upward.

The main character is rebellious teen Emily Murphy, but the story also follows the viewpoints of her schoolmates, Mason and Quinn, and some of the other characters (friends and foes) who she meets along the way. In fact, at one very memorable point in the story we get the same scene repeated from eac

I absolutely loved this! Emily is at school and has just made it in time to take her exam. But if she thinks it’s just another day, she couldn’t be more wrong! Suddenly her school is under attack and one of her the girls from her school, Quinn is kidnapped… she follows in a bid to rescue her….and so does Mason.

But they end up finding themselves in a place they couldn’t have imagined- another world and the chase to save their friend begins. In a world full of alien beings, can they find someo

How surprised are we that this is a magic based book? Honestly if you follow me on Goodreads (which you should, there’s a link in the about me section), you’ll know how much I love magic in books. However, I was kind of sad that the magic wasn’t worked more into the book. Basically there’s a character that has magical abilities, but he doesn’t really explain how he has them until the book has a few chapters left. It could be because it’s the first book in a series, but who knows.

A Wonderful Adventure

I absolutely loved this book! It's a little bit Alice falling down the rabbit hole meets Parcy Jackson with a sprinkle of Narnia and a dash of Harry Potter. Emily and her friends are awesome characters who make you want to join their journey as well as see them to the end of it. The author did such a great job of describing new worlds and those who inhabit them that I could totally imagine what they would look like if they were to come off the pages. The pacing of the story

The Necromancer’s Prison is an all-ages portal fantasy that is fast-paced and fun. I hold back on explaining too much of the plot above, but just know that the characters have to fit many different roles as their conflicts change and evolve during the course of the novel. They are tested and being teens who are naive and maybe a bit self-centered it isn’t an easy challenge. The authors definitely make the most of the portal leap. One thing in particular that I found inventive was the inclusion o ...more

The Necromancer’s Prison is a fantastic Sci-Fi/Fantasy that I flew through. It’s character-driven, fast-paced and was everything I hoped it would be. Wonderfully written novel that I’m so excited I had the opportunity to read!

The characters were brilliantly written. The comradery, the witty banter, the bickering…everything felt authentic. It felt as if these were real people and I was on this journey with them. I connected to them the way I’d hoped and I’m really impressed with them.

Thank you to the author for sending me this book to review. I’m not one to read science fiction usually, as I always feel like it is a bit out of my depth. But this was a great introduction into the genre for me. I loved the characters, especially both of the Emily’s. There is something so great about the protagonist being young, female and strong all in one. The plot was incredibly engaging, and after a third of the way through I was swiftly turning the pages to discover what twist was going to ...more

What an absolutely fun read.

I had no expectations when I picked this one up, just excitement and hope. A debut novel that mixed three of my favorite things: YA, Fantasy, and Sci-Fi? Yeah, I was down for the ride, and I was not disappointed.

The Necromancer’s Prison has a lot of strengths going for it. For one, the mix of genres feels fresh and unique. More and more in YA, and fantasy in general, I see magic and aliens/technology being mixed and connected in some way. It’s such a cool effect. Beca

The entire book was incredibly creative and unique. My son wanted it added to his personal library. I read the ebook. I'm happy we purchased it. The fact that the main characters are human gave the story a point of familiarity before jumping into a new and different environment. I always need to feel that I can imagine myself going through life in the very manner of some of the characters. Then when you introduce fantasy or sci-fi elements, such as sorcery or alien beings, it really flows. A new ...more

I will admit I was a little hesitant to read this book. Science fiction and I have a love-hate relationship. I tend to get bored if the book is too logical, so it's always a gamble for me. Luckily, this book was right up my alley. It's science fiction that verges on the cusp of fantasy. It's logical, but it doesn't get bogged down by too much logic which I appreciated.

The Necromancer's Prison is a daring adventure book that is sure to keep you turning the page. I loved seeing the interaction be

A big thank you to Alec Whitehall for sending me an eBook of this wonderful book.

I found this to be a great read. I thought it was really well written, with an engaging and interesting plot. I felt it was a very unique and creative read. It's been a while since I've read such good sic-fi book. 

I loved the array of characters. They felt interesting and well developed. They all felt unique in their individual ways. I also liked how we learn of their personal strengths and weaknesses as we follow t
