Necromancers only want you for your body
Monster hunter Dani Black wants revenge.
A year ago, the rogue Necromancer Spectre murdered her partner during a hunt gone wrong. Dani has been looking for a way to kill him–and keep him dead–ever since. When rumors of a weapon capable of killing anything surface in Dawson Maryland, she sets out on a mission to get her hands on it. While unraveling a web of clues about her own past, Dani runs into the alluring Emilie Lockgrove, daughter of a magical family who are inexplicably tied to Spectre.
Emilie Lockgrove wants answers.
Ten years ago she survived the catastrophic fire that killed her mother, and left her hospitalized. Now, Emilie has returned to Dawson, expecting to confront the trauma of her past and move on. Instead, she discovers magic is real and encounters ghosts, monsters, and the necromancer who has hunted the mediums in her family for generations.
Dani intends to kill Spectre or die trying. Emilie wants to reclaim the life of magic that was hidden from her.
To survive, they’ll need to work together to confront their past, break the spell holding back Emilie’s magic, and destroy Spectre once and for all.
