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.

Customer ReviewsSee All
I would definitely recommend
This book is definitely worth a read. The main character Charlie(Charlotte) is strong, powerful, and independent while also carrying some glaring weaknesses that cause her to need the help of others in certain situations.
The addition of necromancy in this novel is very intriguing and flows well into the story’s plot-lines but if you are looking for some heavy magic use this book lacks true depth and experimentation or practical application of her magic. I assume the later novels will have a lot more of her powers being tested and used, but for now the book focuses on building the personalities and world view she lives in which in and of itself is amazing and totally worth it.
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.
A love story with a hint of fantasy
Dont come looking for a true fantasy here just a love story with three accidental incidences of necromancy beginning middle and end which kept me reading.
