It began in the graveyard… Ever since her boyfriend Nathan had died in a tragic accident, Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. For Emma, life had stopped with Nathan’s death. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there--Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death... Emma was not quite like others teenagers. It was true that other girls had experienced grief. Other girls had also lost their fathers, or had their boyfriends die in a senseless accident. But though she hadn’t known it till that night in the graveyard, unlike those other girls, she could see, touch, and speak with the dead. In fact, Emma could draw upon the essence of the dead to work magic. That was what Necromancers did. But Emma had no desire to be a Necromancer. She just wanted to help the ghosts who walked the streets of Toronto, unable to escape from the land of the living. And that was just as well, because had she chosen the path of the Necromancer, Eric would have had to kill her. Instead, Eric and his fellow Necromancer hunter Chase found themselves violating every rule they were sworn to follow, becoming part of Emma’s group, helping her to stand against those who preyed upon the dead. But whether Emma and her friends could survive such a battle was anyone’s guess. And whether Emma could learn to use the magic of the dead against her enemies without herself falling victim to the lure of such power remained to be seen. Eric seemed to think she could, and her living friends would never abandon her. But only time would tell what Emma’s true destiny was...

First thing I can say about this book is that it's definitely meant for a teenager. I'm not usually into books that take place in the world we live in, even if it has a bit of paranormal or fantasy to it. It all took place in about a week. Sometimes the wording would confuse me and I'd have to backt...

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!I bought this book because I got was approved to review book 2 and hadn’t read book 1 yet. If I can help it, I try not to start a series in the middle if I can afford it at the time :)The cover is beautiful, mysterious, and looks very magical :...

I really loved this book. Admittedly, I'm a big fan of Sagara's Sun Sword Series and Chronicles of Elantra, but you still never know with a new series and new world. The characters were interesting, the ghost of Drew was heartbreaking and I'm interested to see where the next book takes Emma.

I fully did not expect to enjoy this book all that much, to be honest. I read a lot of reviews ahead of time (which I shouldn't do but I have no willpower) and the reviews for this book amongst my friends were pretty mixed. Usually when reviews are mixed, I fall on the 'dislike' side. Not this time....
