really liked it

At first, I confess, I was reading this thinking,why has M. S. jumped on the ya urban fantasy seeing dead people bandwagon? Everything else she's written has such originality. Then in her inimitable fashion, she sucked me in all the way. And, whereas I was easily able to give up certain other author's forays into ya, I will keep reading these. Part of Sagara's gift is to gift her outsiders community, and this is what's so seductive to me as a reader. All us outsiders long for community, if we live long enough, and reading these stories give us hope that it might happen, and clues to maybe help it happen. I especially appreciate the high-functioning autistic character. Sagara's heroes (hey Apple geeks, why does the iPad want to autocorrect heroes to jerks?) are always fierce warriors of the heart, and this is why I am a super fan. Anyway, plot: girl discovers she can see the dead, mysterious organization wants to kill her as a budding necromancer. But it turns out that using the power of the dead is not the only choice a necromancer has...
