Book Description

THE NECROMANCER

Michelle was brutally attacked in her locked hotel room in Las Vegas. The police didn't believe her and thought she must have lured a man up to her hotel room for a little sexual adventure, which went dangerously out of control.

Michelle sustained visible scars from the terrifying and almost lethal attack, but pure fear motivated the move from her home in California to Hawaii. She's scared her attacker will come back. She's sure the next time he'll kill her. Now she has a successful career and she figures abstinence is an acceptable, if lonely, way to live.

Michelle decides an affair with a wickedly handsome man who moves into her building might cure her of the humiliating, embarrassing, and uncontrollable anxiety attacks which plague her whenever she finds herself alone with a man.

How could she know that she made the worst possible choice?

Omar Satinov, the man Michelle has chosen, is a secret, whispered legend across several continents. His lure is a mystical religion based upon Witchcraft; his hook, the addictive herbal products he sells his followers. But does he really have supernatural powers, as many of his disciples believe?

...I would recommend this book very highly! It was an extremely entertaining read that kept me hooked right up to the end.

... Being from Honolulu myself, I really enjoyed the references to some of my old haunts in Necromancer. However, I never knew so much intrigue was going on!

... I am left wanting to read more of the authors work. It was one of the best books that I have read lately, and I read a lot.

... Enjoyed every moment reading this book. Kept me up until 5 am for 3 nights running. All the characters are well developed, the story moves so fast and smoothly there was no place to stop, nor did I want to. Looking forward to reading her other books.

From the Author

The Necromancer is probably my most complex novel. It's also my personal favorite of all my novels.  I hope readers will find enjoyment and a fun, scary escape into the paranormal.  My other novels are, Midnight Reflections, The Living Image, Deadly Memories, Deadly Fun.  Trifecta is a box set of three complete novels with over 1000 pages.  My children's books:  Little Ghostie and Christmas with Uncle Nick and the Sugarplum Fairies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read I Couldn't Put Down! September 6, 2011
By pumpkin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Before I give my review I wanted to give a little warning: There are two semi-graphic rape scenes in this book. Okay, with that being said, I was in a reading slump before I read this and was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised when I could not put down this beauty of a book. Here is a quick summary on some of the characters that come together without giving away too much:

Vincent is a well- respected professor who is known to his students as the "Vampire Hunter" because of his research on witches and cults. He has been chasing a man named Omar around the world because he believes he is a leader of a cult that rapes & drugs women in order to make them his "witches" (aka his followers). Vincent thinks if he brings along his young pretty college student Suzanne to Hawaii with him, it will be easier to get on the inside of Omar's world. Poor Suzan has no idea what she's getting into, she just thinks she's along for a free trip. And poor Vincent really doesn't believe in real witches or magic...he's got a lot to learn fast, if he wants to survive.

Michelle (the main character) is in property management for a large hotel in Hawaii and she's darn good at her job no matter how hectic it gets. She is also a recovering alcoholic who had to move to Hawaii from Las Vegas due to a traumatic rape by someone she never saw & was never caught. She has come along way in two years since the rape; she is now active in karate, well respected at work and has a great friend named Heather but she hasn't started dating again. Michelle is terrified of men with good reason and it's causing her to have panic attacks when she's around men outside of work. However, she has decided she wants to get back in the game and try a one-night stand.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well written PNR story July 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story introduces us to Michelle, who is a hard working property manager. She has a fear of men due to a brutal attack suffered in a hotel room. She finds solace working hard, taking karate lessons and trying to continue working on her sobriety.
She meets a man named Omar, and there is a weird attraction to him. Not really a romantic attraction but some sort of draw to this guy. So Michelle decides, why not try to use this guy to get over her phobia of men since she isn't really in danger of falling in love him. Maybe a sexual relationship will help her get over that hump so she can finally have a real relationship with the opposite sex.
But there is something weird about his guy. She has nightmares and he just seems to perfect. Slowly we begin to learn more about Omar. He is sorcerer/wizard or magic using necromancer. He starts affecting things around Michelle. Then we are unclear if his intentions towards Michelle are moral or malicious.

I enjoyed this story because it wasn't an overly romantic PNR and it was definitely different from the typical witch and vampire stories. It wasn't filled with gratuitous sex or cheesy love lines. There was a solid foundation that the author built and the characters were likable. I couldn't put this book down because I just had to know what would happen next. I think this author is one to watch. I will definitely read her other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good paranormal read January 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished The Necromancer and thought it was a very good book.

Plot - really kept me interested through the whole book. There was just the right amount of foreshadowing and I never had a point where I got lost in the plot. A few things were predictable but I was cheering for our main character. After I was about 25% into the book I found I could not put the book down, I really wanted to see what would happen next. This involved reading until 2am but it was well worth it.

Character - the main character was female and was very believable. I enjoyed how she changed throughout the course of the story. She really grabbed my attention at the beginning of the story and kept it through the book. I also liked the fact that she didn't need a man to make her the person that she was.

There were a lot of good points to this book. The characters were all believable and it was a well written story. I only found 2 spelling errors and 2 formatting errors toward the end of the book, it was very professionally done and easy to read. There was a small bit of sexual content but it was not graphic and it was in the story to move the storyline along.

I would recommend this book very highly! It was an extremely entertaining read that kept me hooked right up to the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rough start but got better February 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
(Disclosure - I received this book free in an author giveaway.)

This book and I got off to a rough start. Initially, many of the characters were either unlikeable or too inconsistent for me to care about. Michelle, the main character, seems rather chilly, distant and intelligent, yet simultaneously stupid and unthinking in ways that don't really add up for me.

I also got hung up on some errors that I encountered in the book - common misspellings and other minor errors - as well as some facts that didn't wash. I felt as though some things were just thrown in so as not to waste the research, so to speak.

The first character that intrigued me was Nakamura. Soon, Michelle's interactions with Nakamura started giving her character more depth and realism. I'm not sure where exactly, but somewhere just past the halfway point, I got sucked in and really started to enjoy the book. The cast of characters came together and meshed, I started to care about the good guys, and there was enough action and momentum to carry me past the small issues.

The Hawaiian setting was beautiful, and the author was good at providing details that added realism to the story environment.

Though I nearly gave up on the book early on, I'm glad I stuck with it. Yes, it needs editing - both for errors and for a few instances of foreshadowing that go nowhere - but the story works out and I think the book redeems itself.

Editorial Reviews: THE LIVING IMAGE by P.M. Richter

"[The Living Image] is an exciting and detailed thriller story which simply oozes with suspense and greedy characters! I especially like how P. M. Richter eneded the story. If you like the movies "The Fugitive", "The Pelican Brief", or "The Client" then this story is for you!" -- Huntress Book Reviews

"THE LIVING IMAGE takes us on a dangerous and unforgettable journey into the frightening reality of the unexpected--a novel of conspiracy, betrayal, survival, and deep abiding love. A page turner that draws the mettle of the story to a satisfying conclusion, and proves that when you think you have reached your darkest hour, the brightest of your dreams can come true........" -- Betty Wiechert, former reviewer for Affaire de Coeur magazine

"WOW!! This one I could not put down!! To go to a tanning salon for a little color and come home with a clone! A living image of yourself, only better. How disconcerting! The clone is to be a better offshoot of the human race. The intrigues of three major intelligence agencies to reach that prize are fun to watch as the two "foxes" continually outfox the hounds. Since life is the prize if the girls win, there is much at stake. A definate must read." -- Laurie L. Gruber, BookNook Reviews
