We get to see Dakar and Sy one more time! Their family grew, Sy and Dakar are finally on the same page concerning their relationship but unfortunately not everyone approves or wants them to be together. They have to face magic community and fight all the prejudice and old-fashioned beliefs, face evil demons and keep their loved ones safe. The book is fast-paced, suspenseful and full of magic. There is plenty of affection between lovers and friends, a bit of angst and fights to protect people of ...more

Great end to the series

4 ⭐

Great end to the series.

Dakar really stepped up in this one and finally has his head out of his butt, he stood by Sy at all times and was a great mate. Dakar’s parents disappointed me big time. I was honestly thinking that being shifters they would be more accepting.

A lot happens in this instalment. There were twists and turns and some unexpected conflict that was resolved well. I enjoyed how everyone of the characters came into themselves and their ind

I thought this to be a wonderful ending to the Necromancer series. I absolutely love both Dakar and Sebastian along with Brad and Brock. I loved both relationships and how they stood together to defeat their enemies and obtain their HEA. I was pleased that the abuse mentioned in the blurb was part of the story but wasn’t described in any way. There were secondary characters that I would love to read about in the future. All in all, a really wonderful ending to this series th

I don't want to give anything away but I will say that I loved this book! Lisa Oliver did another wonderful job bringing all the characters to life. This book was full of surprises and I never knew what was coming next. It was great seeing the story and events progress as well as seeing the evil and idiots put in their place. Well done, Lisa!

It's been quite a wait for Sy and Dakar to have their HEA. I myself did a re read in order to remember where we left off. It was a smart idea as book 3 picks up right there. Also it's never a hardship when I know how much I enjoyed them the first time around.

Lots of drama and even more battles going on in this one. I feel Sy and Dakar were much stronger as a couple in this one and didn't waver as much with everything tbrown at them. They finally started to trust and believe in one another. It t

Trilogies for the win

This is the 3rd book in the trilogy and shouldn't be read without the other two.

Already a fan of Lisa's books but loved the longer, deeper, story of one couple that this trilogy affords and the final books allows all these threads to come together.

The Shifter and Magical worlds collide with the mating of this couple. The preconceptions and ignorances each of their cultures show deep, sometimes hidden prejudices that try to rationalise away what

I loved that every major decision in this book was made as a unit. There was some danger of people going off on their own to sacrifice themselves for the love of the others, but I liked that Sy, Dakar, Brock, and Brad worked as a unit.

I do have to wonder if Dakar will need to train his ability to tap Sy's abilities now that he knows it's possible. Will Brad discover similar things with his bind to Brock? And since they're all basically immortal, are they stick with their new

Loved the series especially with the audible in the first two books.

Hated seeing the end of this magical and shifter dynamic we know frogs mate was the new gargoyle captain. But would love reading their story, along with Connor and his witch mate. I'm going to miss Sy, Dakar, Brad, and Brock. This trilogy is a magnificent read. When the third book came out I listened to the 1st and 2nd before reading the third. I hope it comes out with an audible book also. If you love m/m mates, magic, demon

This has been well worth the wait.

The series is well-developed and the final instalment has built on that and the introduction of a few minor characters has added great depth to the book.

Sy and Dakar's HEA has been a long time coming given the many challenges and obstacles along the way but with a lot of support, friendships and the desire to right many wrongs and evil doing this has made it an enjoyable series and read.

I would definitely recommend all 3 books

This is the third and last book of the Necromancer's series. To get the whole picture, better to be read in order. I loved this book. Couldn't put it down. The love and the bond between Sy and Dakar strengthened over time, and they have each others back. There are unexpected twists and turns in this book. And I'm happy, that Brock and Brad have found each other. Great book, great series. Highly recommended. Thank you, Lisa, you did it again.

Too good to end now

The Necromancer trilogy has been a great read but ended too soon. The development of the relationships has been enjoyable to read about and sex wasn't half bad either. Chuckle. I wish the trilogy would extend to 6 books to fully cover Sy's development and Dakkar's education. And frankly I love to read about magic not just shifters and how much cultures learn to blend.

Sye and Dakar sure do make a formidable couple! I’m so glad they finally got their HEA. This book ties up the loose ends and we get all the wonderful action that Lisa Oliver is known for. Nothing is ever easy, and she really makes them work for it! Another fantastic story by a world class author! She is ALWAYS a one-click for me!

Thank you....

I find this book to be very exciting and interesting to read. Dakar and Sy travelled a long journey, to keep their newly formed pack together and safe. And, I enjoyed taking the journey with them. I want to thank you so much for their story, and hope you'll bring them back in the near future. I would like to read more about Connor and Troy, and their mates.

This was an enjoyable book. It rounded the series out nicely, although was irked with Dakar's family not being accepting. Seemed to be the same thing different day as the other books. I would have liked to see more of Sy using his powers in his day to day job, but as always I really enjoyed the characters.

Great series

I enjoyed the trilogy and would have been on board for another book. The book flowed and kept my attention. Ms. Oliver is one of my favorite author's and I will be waiting for future selections.

As usual Lisa has written an entertaining story with lots of twists. Great that Sy and his wolf mate got their HEA. Recommended. Looking forward to reading more about Connor and his witch.

Another Amazing book by Lisa

I read this book in under 24 hours of purchasing it. I could not put it down. The story will draw you in. Yes this is the final book in the trilogy, but the world that Lisa creates will make you want more.

Another great read and series

This whole series was cool. Love seeing Sy fully come into himself and Dykar learning a Alpha doesn't have to be be in charge. As always Lisa has left room for other books associated to this series and I look forward to reading them.

Oh my Lisa!!!!

That was a perfect story. I loved Sy and his mate. I loved Sy’s companion and I loved the gargoyle. Every book you write is gold. I will buy it if you write it.

A lovely and fitting end to the trilogy. I really enjoyed reading this, perhaps because the wish-fulfillment aspect was quite strong.
