[Read by Tristan Morris]

This tale of dark fantasy finds a man caught in an epic battle of life or death.

''Knowledge in the absence of wisdom is a dangerous thing.''

Texas archaeology student Nicolas Murray has an ironic fear of the dead. A latent power connecting him to an ancient order of necromancers floods his mind with impossible images of battle among hive-mind predators and philosopher fishmen. When a funeral service leaves him shaken and questioning his sanity, the insidious power strands him in a land where the sky kills and earthquakes level cities - a land where the undead serve the living and necromancers summon warriors from ancient graves to fight in a war that spans life and afterlife.

If Nicolas masters the Three Laws of Necromancy, he can use them to get home. But as he learns to raise and purify the dead - a process that makes him relive entire lifetimes in the span of a moment - the very power that could bring him home may also prevent his return. For the supreme religious leader, the Archmage Kagan, has outlawed necromancy, and its practitioners risk torture and execution.

As warring nations hunt necromancers to extinction, countless dead in limbo await a purification that may never come.

Nicolas' power could be his way home - or it could save a world that wants him dead.

From the Author:

I hope you enjoy this 2nd Edition of Necromancer Awakening. When I was getting ready to publish Necromancer Falling, I discovered an amazing fantasy artist named Atanas Stoykov. Atanas created such amazing artwork that I just had to ask him to re-imagine the cover for Necromancer Awakening. He didn't disappoint, as I'm sure you'll agree.
Not only is this print edition in the larger, and more popular, 6" x 9" format, it also includes, as a bonus, the entirety of The Road to Dar Rodon. TRtDR is a prequel novelette that takes place some 40 years prior to the events of Necromancer Awakening, and it features Mujahid Lord Mukhtaar as the main character...at a not-so-pleasant moment in his life. 
Thank you all so much for the kind words you've shared with me about the Erindor universe. I'm so happy you've come to love it as much as I have. Maybe someday we can all hoist a pint at the Pinnacle.
Cheers,Nat
