The sixth book of this dark urban fantasy series follows necromancer Eric Carter through a world of vengeful gods and goddesses, mysterious murders, and restless ghosts.
The Necromancer is dead. Long live the Necromancer.
After being attacked by a demon in the one place he thought he was safe, Eric Carter has been killed, his soul sent to take its place as a stand-in for the Aztec god of death Mictlantecuhtli. But somebody on Earth isn't done with him, yet. Somebody with the power to bring him back from the dead. He doesn't know who, and worse he doesn't know why.
Between an angry death goddess, family secrets steeped in blood, a Djinn who's biding his time, and a killer mage who can create copy after copy of himself, Eric's new life looks to be just as violent as his last one. But if he doesn't get to the bottom of why he's back, it's going to be a hell of a lot shorter.
Blackmoore's sixth dark urban fantasy to feature necromancer Eric Carter (after Ghost Money) ties up loose ends in style. Waking up in a hotel room without knowing how he got there is no surprise to Carter, who's grown accustomed to blackouts, but finding his scars gone and his tattoos altered is a shock. He discovers that he died five years ago and has now been brought back to life in someone else's body due to his complicated mental connection to Mictlantecuhtli, the God of death. It was Mictlantecuhtli who created the now rapidly fading wards keeping a dangerous djinn locked in a bottle. Now the djinn is on the brink of escape and it has a plot for revenge that would result in the destruction of the world. As Carter scrambles to find a way to stop the djinn he must also contend with multiple beings who want him dead. Carter's voice is as unapologetically snarky and cynical as ever, but this book sees him cleaning up his act and taking more care with the people around him. Series fans will not be disappointed.
