Any city is bound to collect restless dead. Armed with the notebook of Icelandic magic his ex boyfriend, Bone, gave him, Edward Grey has been tasked with removing troubled spirits or finding ways for the living and the dead to coexist in harmony. Between planning his wedding with his undead Canadian fiancé, Kit Ward, and his continued studies as a medical student, Edward didn’t need another commitment, but he can’t turn away people who are frightened or in danger.
A particularly vicious ghost gives Edward an ominous warning—they’re coming—and a few days later Edward’s notebook is stolen from him. While he’s attempting to find it, he and his mentor, Mariel, are confronted by a very powerful necromancer and barely escape with their lives.
On the run, Edward is pursued everywhere he goes, until the necromancers following him manage to capture Kit.
Edward’s hunt for his kidnapped fiancé will take him to the underworld and beyond.
Just for Fun
I’ve been with this series since the beginning, and I can honestly say it just keeps getting better. There’s no one way to categorize it. The story is creepy fun, with plenty of fast-paced action and an epic battle. Somehow, even the gory scenes are lighthearted, and the relationship between Edward and Kit is quality comfort reading. There’s a bit of sexiness without being graphic or even descriptive, and when Edward’s friend Bone is involved, plenty of terrible but hilarious innuendo. There’s a little of everything good in here.
Edward is definitely not your typical knight-in-shining-armor hero. He’s something like an everyman, only gifted with necromancy. He knows he’s not the fastest, strongest, or most agile, and he owns it. Yet somehow, he always fails to see that his greatest ability is his capacity for love. He somewhat styles himself as a misanthrope, but in everything he does, the care he has for his friends and family is evident. That’s what makes him so likable.
Kit is a treasure, as always. He has a lot of depth, and we saw a few more fleeting glimpses of his life when he was alive. The stories are always in Edward’s first person point of view, so we don’t get to see through Kit’s eyes. This is a good thing; I like the mystery of it and how Edward doesn’t press him for details (which Kit might not even be able to provide). We still get to know him, and slowly things have been revealed.
By far my favorite secondary character has always been Edward’s friend Bone. He is just so thoroughly weird and creepy. I was delighted to see plenty of him in this installment, and it turns out there’s much more than meets the eye with him. There’s more ground to explore there, I think, and I’d love to read it.
I’d be hard-pressed to pick a favorite book in the series, but this might be it. Edward’s world is rich, well-crafted, and a pleasure to explore. Each new part takes us deeper into it. For new readers, it does help to have read the previous two parts. There are characters introduced in those who appear in this one, and they’ll seem random without the context. The first book is how Edward and Kit ended up together, so at the very least, that one is a must-read. At the same time, there’s enough in here that’s new, and enough explanation of previous events, that it should work acceptably as a stand-alone.
For lovable characters, an edge-of-your-seat story, and a world worthy of many returns to explore, this gets 10/10 fountain pens.
