Taking Care of Business
(Please note, this is a trilogy covering the same main characters throughout. Reading books one and two is best before reading this one).
When Sy learned that Connor, the young familiar who’d been staying with him, had been captured, he knew immediately that he could find him. After all, what use was it, him bei ...more
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 individual power. ...more
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 that I w ...more
Same comments about punctuation, etc., as in the previous books in the series, but I still was able to kind of ignore the errors, at least well enough to keep reading and find out what ha ...more
I didn't particularly like the first book in this trilogy because of all the whining, misunderstanding and drama. I really like this author and have absolutely loved all of her other series so after leaving the first book alone for over a year decided to try book 2 . It was better but it was the third book that made me love this author all over again and truly wrapped up the series in a very satisfying way. You really should read the books in order to appreciate the whole ...more
It's so good, just like the other books.
I like how theire relationship hecome more strength.
I like how every characters develop.
Just like typical "fate mate" story, even if they always said that it's rare to find one, there always suddenly so many fate mate in the the story.
And at the end of the book the story almost seems like it been rushed, the ending almost feel like to be forced.
But so far I enjoy read it.
Hope there gonna be short story for the other couple, coz I like to read it.
This trilogy was so very good, the world the characters lived in and the trials and tribulations they went through was exciting and the love the family created was just lovely. Lisa Oliver can always be counted on to take you away to new and exciting places, to show you what love between mates should be like. Just glorious.
I’ve read a lot of Lisa Oliver’s work, ever since I discovered my love of shifters and magic. However, I feel pretty confident in proclaiming The Necromancer’s Smile to be my absolute favourite of her series. And of course, this is the one that is set up as a trilogy rather than one of this author’s never ending series! When the author announced this trilogy, I thought – sure, Leese (not that I personally know this author, but she seems really nice so I’m sure I’d call her Leese) sure, ...more
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 ...more
I re-read first two before continuing on this one.
I'm not sure if it's because of re-read of books I already re-read but in this round #2 is my favorite.
I liked this book but, and I do apologise to author, ending was a bit rushed over for me (maybe it'll change next time I reread all 3). I love surprise with Brock .
This story revolves around the abduction of Connor, a young familiar who was forced bonded and lives in the Necromancer's mansion now (first seen in The Necromancer's Smile). Things start to get downhill from there on out. It is also not helpfull when Dakars family shows up and start to interfere in Dakar an ...more
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 the fates had deemed absolute. ...more
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 if having not already done so.
As ev ...more
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 jobs for e ...more
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 fi ...more
I don't think you can read this as a standalone but if you've started the series you'll want to read this and you'll enjoy it!
I really enjoyed this book and how it goes everything up from the rest of the trilogy. You did a great job on the plot and characters development in the books and really could stop and put the book down. If you like mystery , romance and drama you will enjoy this book.
Lisa keep up the great work you are an amazing author and I enjoyed all the books you have written.
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!
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 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.
When Lisa is not writing, she is usually reading with a cup of tea always at hand. Her grown children and grandchildr ...more
