9781937044091: Ward Against Death (Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer, #1)

This book has it all-wonderful characters, action packed, mystery, and a unique setting. An excellent debut! ~ Maria V. Snyder, New York Times bestselling author of Poison Study

With elegant prose and a clever wit, WARD AGAINST DEATH is a fun, fast-paced adventure, with just a hint of romance and plenty of suspense. I highly recommend picking up a copy. I know I'm already looking forward to the sequel! ~ E. Kristin Anderson, young adult author and poet


Ward Against Death was a ton of fun! Reminded me of a Harry Dresden meets Stephanie Plum meets awesome. Ward was funny; the poor guy just couldn't catch a break. You gotta love it when the main character doesn't realize just how good he is. I need to know what will happen and I can't wait for the sequel! ~ Attack of the Book, Top 5 pick July 2011


Ward de'Ath expected this to be a simple job--bring a nobleman's daughter back from the dead for fifteen minutes, let her family say good-bye, and launch his fledgling career as a necromancer. Goddess knows he can't be a surgeon--the Quayestri already branded him a criminal for trying--so bringing people back from the dead it is.

But when Ward wakes the beautiful Celia Carlyle, he gets more than he bargained for. Insistent that she's been murdered, Celia begs Ward to keep her alive and help her find justice. By the time she drags him out her bedroom window and into the sewers, Ward can't bring himself to break his damned physician's Oath and desert her.

However, nothing is as it seems--including Celia. One second, she's treating Ward like sewage, the next she's kissing him. And for a nobleman's daughter, she sure has a lot of enemies. If he could just convince his heart to give up on the infuriating beauty, he might get out of this alive...

About the Author:

I have always been drawn to story telling. In fact, I can't remember a time when I wasn't telling a story in my head or on paper. In grade school, we had journal writing time which I turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that I loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that I nurtured this love and started my journey as a writer.

I write fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join me on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.

Review:

Recommended for fans of kick-butt heroines who reluctantly soften as they mature, heroes who actually have to work to earn the title, and an intriguing paranormal-fantasy universe to explore. A very enthusiastically solid 5/5 Stars. ~Romanceaholic's Best of 2011 Recommendations

Favorite Book of 2011 ~Staff top 5 Pick, Supernatural Book Lover's Club
