Review

Necromancer gives readers what they've long waited for -- a rousing conclusion to the trilogy begun in Nomadin and continued in NiDemon. Put this trilogy on your 'must-keep' shelf. Enjoy! --Robert E. Vardeman: Author of The Cenotaph Road Series

This book takes place after Ilein and Windy go into the crossing. Although it's not what they thought. They are taken to a evil deformed land ruled by the OneGod. Ilein is told he was there 2000 years earlier and there is only 1 wizardress left. A young Watcher named Kale will find Ilein and lead him out of the Descreation. Kale is a perfect example of the deformities the OneGod has created in his world. However, these visual disturbances do nothing to hinder Kale's use of the Breaching Arts and protecting Ilein. On their adventures you'll meet cyclops and Rose. Who is Rose? Ilein feels something familiar about her. She arrived 30 years ago just like himself, through the crossing.

This book had a feeling of hopelessness about it, as it should. However this feeling will disappear the closer the end gets. This new world was not what Gallund said it would be. Things have went terribly wrong. From the start this is a page turner. Why is this world the way it is? How did Ilein arrive 2000 years earlier? Where's Windy? What happened?

The closer the ending gets the answers are revealing themselves. Also it's shaping up to a big choice Ilein has to make. His friend's or make the world right? It's a hard choice that only the man Ilein has become can make. Did I mention this book was a page turner?

Many of the characters have secrets in this book, Kale, Globe, Rose, and the OneGod. Telling anything else will reveal too much.

My only complaint with this book, it wasn't edited very well. There are many spots where the wrong word is used or missing or the wrong gender is referenced. However, this is easily overlooked because as the conclusion to this fantastic triology is coming to a close the reader hungers to see what happens next.

Read this trilogy, it's great, young and old. A keeper to be read again.

Sequel to NiDemon

Night is almost upon them as Ilien, Kale and Rose struggle forward in opening paragraph. It is not safe to be found in the open in the Desecration once night has fallen. The reader is drawn into the narrative immediately with the opening lines found in Necromancer. The initial pages of the work include a hand drawn map, I like fantasy works which include maps, as I read I can refer back and keep myself on track as where, and what is going on in the tale.

As in the previous volumes of the trilogy we follow Ilien in his quest to make sense of what is happening and why. In Nomadin we found Ilien Woodhill to be a boy who is a bit of perplexity. We were introduced to Gallund, a mystic, who is caring for Ilien during the time his peasant mother is away from home. Ilien has in his possession a very special pencil which Gallund his mentor has pointed out more than once is to be used wisely for spells. Ilien has had his share of confrontation with witches and has discovered that the NiDemon are determined to destroy Gallund.

Later on the pages of NiDemon the reader realized the potential of a Prophesied Child, were introduced to a host of supernatural beings, met an intriguing personage -the Swan- and worried as terrifying Nephalim sought to wreak havoc. Betrayal, runes, a prophesy fulfilled were exposed before the tale concluded. NiDemon closed with farewells, hope and the beginning of a journey.

And now we begin Necromancer. Readers will find what have been awaiting. This is the concluding volume of the trilogy begun in Nomadin and continued in NiDemon. Magically moved into a cursed land, Ilien must find and destroy the thing that cannot be destroyed.

As ever, Mr Cormier grabs the reader and keeps them hooked throughout the story. Necromancer proved a highly satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy and I, for one, will miss Ilien and co. Cormier has a way with his writing that makes you want to read on, and I found myself at the end of the book within three days of having picked it up. For me, the story was that good and the writing comfortably readable. In this tale, Ilien must face who and what he is and save the one person in the world he values above all others and, in the process, save his world from a thousand years of descration.

To say anything else about the story would give the plot way, so buy a copy. You won't regret it. The book fits nice and snug amongst the YA audience, but is also an enthralling adult read.

I really enjoyed all three of these books. After the first one I couldn't wait for the other two. I bought them all as they came out and was not disappointed in any of them. Such a fun read, a definite must for fantasy fans.
