College-dropout Sam is living alright. He has a job at Plumpy’s and ok with his ho-hum existence. That all changes when Douglas, a powerful necromancer, enters Plumpy’s. Douglas senses Sam as a fellow necromancer and uses questionable tactics to get Sam on his side. First, Douglas uses Michael, his personal were (werewolf) and henchman. Michael leaves Sam badly beaten, but he and his friends (Ramon and Frank) do not go to the hospital because the assailant had inhuman strength, and nobody would believe them. Second, Douglas sends a message along with the living severed head of one of Sam’s friends, Brooke. She tells him to go to the zoo to meet with Douglas. There, Douglas tells ignorant Sam that he has potential, but his power has been bound (By his witch mother and necromancer uncle). Douglas even gives him the power to see auras. He gives Sam 1 week to decide to either become Douglas’s apprentice, or watch as his loved ones die, 1 by 1. During this week, Douglas kidnaps Sam and puts him in a cage with a were-fey (werewolf and fairy hybrid), Brid. With the help of Ramon, Sam’s mom, and Brid’s pack, Sam and Brid are freed, Douglas is killed, and they all live happily ever after.

Reaction: This book was very easy to read, and pretty funny. However, it was not as suspenseful and/or scary as I was expecting and wanting. I liked it, but I don’t think I would read it again. It was alright.
