The Necromancer's Prey is the third book in the Paranormal Council series. Nevertheless, each book can be read as a standalone. Personally, that is a plus for me :) and it lets you start with any book you prefer. Now, regarding the plot itself. Necromancers are quite a topic to talk about. They are seen as dark creatures because their magic involves the dead, especially when it comes to raising them from the grave. Yeah, I can't dispute that such power would give the creeps to anyone, but it is unfair to think that the world is black and white. Come on people, there are tons of gray everywhere and I believe that is the case of our heroine, Rory.
Rory is the outcast of the necromancer society and even from her own family because she is branded as "too nice" to be a necromancer. Yeah, they are the stereotypical mean dark magic casters. One would say that being an outcast to them wasn't a bog deal, but it is when no one else give you a chance because they though you are who you aren't. The poor girl is labeled as a typical necromancer. I must admit I feel sorry for Rory, she went through a lot in this quite short novel. This is good because it is easy for the reader to relate to her. We have all been in a difficult position where we belong somewhere because we were born as a part of it but our believes scream at us that we belong somewhere. I understand the pain Rory went though and will probably continue to go through but I was very proud that gained strength and confidence as the story moves on. I do believe her character development had quite a good progression and hope we get to see more of her in the series! She was quite a great heroine.
Now, the hero. Alden the shifter that saved our heroine. Yeah, he didn't expect how far and deep their relationship will grow, given the circumstances, Nevertheless, he acts as a real man and protects his mate. I loved his character and the fact that he protected and cared for her. I do believe that is exactly what she needed to find herself. In fact, in my opinion, every romance book needs a good balance between the defects and virtues of the hero and the heroine. There is no problem in this book, Alde and Rory complemented each other and helped each other grow as the book goes on, regardless of the stereotypes and hurtful opinions and actions of third parties.
I highly recommend this novel, it is good written and has a good pace. I can't wait to see what the series has in store for us.
This one features a necromancer. They are not like the other paranormals and very secretive about their activities. They practice death magic. I found the information on necromancers to be interesting and would like to know more about them.
Rory is not like the rest and tries to live differently. She enjoys being a liaison to the council. She never expected an owl shifter to be her mate. Alden is very different from her people. He is also surprised by their connection. They work together to resolve some murders and it puts her at risk which he does not like. I didn't feel like I understood and connected with Aiden as much as Rory.
Rory is an interesting character. She feels insecure about being different but is strong enough to not give in to the others. I liked seeing her grow in confidence.
I didn't see many editing issue so I am not sure what some of the other reviewers were mentioning.
I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received.
This is the book that finally locates the necromancer, that has been refered to in the previous stories, that was killing and causing humans to be accused of the murders. Luckily, one of the shifter councilors had recognized what was occurring and they were on the trsil of the necromancer responsible.
In the midst of all this, there is a couple going through the attraction of true mating, but I believe that is something that you should enjoy through the writer's rendition of their plight.
Again, I throughly enjoyed this story, and have voluntarily submitted this review after reading an advanced copy.
