Publisher Description

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.

Exciting, Fun, maybe inappropriate?

I really enjoyed this story! That first chapter really started this off thrilling, scary, dirty, and supernatural but it lightens up a big chunk in the middle. And the end really fizzles out just to set up the next book.

Spoiler: I’m not sure how I feel about an 18 y.o. and 30 y.o. Will they/won’t they love tension. As a 33 year old, its hard for me to fathom that dynamic but it was fun to read.

Looking forward to the development and growth of our main character in the next book.

A Ridiculous Romance

I picked up this book hoping for some mad science, but mostly got a rather ridiculous awkward romance instead. Well written and moves along at a good clip, but really wasn't what I had hoped for.

too dull

Couldn’t get through it. Exciting in the 1st few chaptrs and then just dull.
