This book was very pleasing to read. The 15 year old necromancer, Chloe, was not whiney or annoying like some YA books that I've read. The story was well paced & it always had me guessing since the author didn't reveal too much all at once, which I liked. The book did end quick with still unanswered questions but luckily I have the next book available to read and do not have to wait a year for it. Look forward to finding some answers in The Awakening.
