Victorian London: For five years, Charlotte (Charlie) Holloway has lived as a boy in the slums. But when one theft too many gets her arrested, her only means of escape lies with a dead man. Charlie hasn't raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time, her father banished her. This time, she brings even more trouble upon herself.
People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her.
Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly "made" creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world - Charlotte - but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he's been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will, and for an organization she doesn't trust?
Because Lincoln and his ministry might be just as dangerous as the madman they're hunting.

I enjoyed this book, I read it in a day, however, it did feel like the first half an hour of a movie in that it is setting the scene for future instalments. I liked all the charecters and their interactions, especially between Charlie, Gus and Seth. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next.
This book was amazingly well written and has given the characters a lot of personality. Although this book is not my particular cup of tea, if you like mystery and fantasy I think you'll enjoy this book quite well.
This is an interesting tale. It started more so than it finished. I liked the characters of Charlie/Charlotte, Fitzroy, Gus, and Seth. There was a good balance of humour.
I had thought that Charlie’s ‘gift’ could have been demonstrated more.
