"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where we share upcoming releases that we just cannot wait for!
Sam leads a pretty normal life. He may not have the most exciting job in the world, but he’s doing all right—until a fast food prank brings him to the attention of Douglas, a creepy guy with an intense violent streak.
Turns out Douglas is a necromancer who raises the dead for cash and sees potential in Sam. Then Sam discovers he’s a necromancer too, but with strangely latent powers. And his worst nightmare wants to join forces . . . or else.
With only a week to figure things out, Sam needs all the help he can get. Luckily he lives in Seattle, which has nearly as many paranormal types as it does coffee places. But even with newfound friends, will Sam be able to save his skin?
Release Date: October 12, 2010
I'm going to have to admit to you all right now, I am totally amazed by the concept of a necromancer! Yes, I'll admit my nerdiness in this respect. I mean, how cool is it to be able to raise people from the dead? Oh yes, it's creepy. Still cool!
When this book popped up on my radar I read the synopsis and smiled. This is most definitely a book that I'm looking forward to! Whether it is scary funny, or funny scary, well that remains to be seen. However, if Sam is as dreamy in the book as he is ON the book...well....yeah. *ahem*
Also, if Sherman Alexie likes it, it must be great. MINE!
