DEAD THINGS by Stephen Blackmoore

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. I was in the mood for a gritty UF book, and that's exactly what I got. Awesome!

Eric Carter is a necromancer. A shitty title, but hey, that's how he makes a living. And we get to see him in action right from the beginning. However, once the job's done, he gets a call from someone that manages to drag him back into his past. And that's how he finds out his sister is dead.

So he heads back to LA after fifteen years away determined to find her killer. Except he finds a whole lot more, because the reason he left is about to ruin his life all over again. Well, unless the creepy Santa Muerte does it first. :/

I loved this book! Eric isn't a great man who wants to save the world, but in his own selfish way he's still helping, by keeping the dead things away from the living. He drinks a bit too much, doesn't get enough sleep and is a trouble magnet, but that's what I enjoyed about him.

This is another UF series I'm looking forward to reading more of. The dark world Eric lives in might be scary and dangerous, but it's very interesting. I look forward to going back!
PS. The cover's super cool. ;)
