After two years committed to a psychiatric hospital, Charlie Kane is turning eighteen. He decides to abandon the pharmaceutical cocktails and emotional group therapy, and signs himself out. Instead of returning home to a cold and distant mother, Charlie travels to the mountains of West Virginia in search of answers about his past.
When the spirit of Charlie's deceased grandfather appears, the truth about Charlie's past is finally revealed. Charlie is a necromancer, a supernatural being who can manipulate the spirit world and reanimate the dead.
With the help of his sister, Charlie gains friends still reeling from the disappearance of one of their own. As Charlie learns to use his powers he discovers the soul of the missing girl and vows to set her free.
After discovering another soul being tortured on an abandoned farm, Charlie comes face to face with a dark necromancer and his army of nefari, the mindless reanimated dead.
When Charlie finds out the other necromancer is his half brother, Charlie is forced to fight back or risk loosing everything he holds dear.
Great story. Loved the characters. Definitely worth reading although a little disjointed in places it didn’t take anything away from the story itself. I’m definitely looking forward to reading the next book to find out what happens.
