I really loved the way this book played out. We have a necromancer, who raises the dead and finds himself in a sticky situation. What I liked the most about this book is the characters. I adored the min character, Ward and his oath. He took things very seriously and figured things out quickly. Other characters played some roles I didn't think would be big but did at the end of the book. Celia is feisty. She is determined and very suspicious of everyone. Given what happen to her, I would be too. The plot line of the book went slow for me. One moment is was good and the next no. I had a hard time through these sections and went through it fast just to get to the next part. Although I did enjoy the drama that went on between the two characters. I wasn't to keen on the love interest. While they acted liked they hated each other, the slowly fell for each other. But these characters drove me mad!!! I just wanted them to kiss and make up already. I also would have like to see more chemistry between the two. Overall, this is a okay book. It definitely wasn't what I expected but enjoyed it nonetheless. It has good characters with loads of travel and action!
