Product 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?

Reviews
...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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 23 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book. It's a good mix of paranormal, romance and action/thriller. All the characters are likeable but my favourite was Michelle - her character developed throughout the book. It's a well-told story - I was totally engrossed, I wanted to know what would happen next.

I would recommend this book very highly! It was a captivating read that had me hooked right up to the last page.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast paced exciting story 3 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't have to describe the plot of this book, it has been done by other reviewers. But I do have to say that the author has written a fast paced story with strong characters and a wonderful setting. All the romance and beauty of Hawaii is here, together with characters one warms to and evil characters one hates and fears. Michelle, our heroine, struggles back from an event in her life that would have permanently crippled most woman. Indeed, it seems to have caused her damage that she is still having trouble coping with. During the course of this book, however, she fights her demons, both physically and emotionally and wins through. This author writes with authority, whether describing a traumatic emotional event, a physical challenge (the swim through the waves to Kauai, helping to drag the professor to the beach is vivid and graphic) or a love scene. Her scenes are never over-done but the action is always authentic. One wanted a happy ending after the suspense of wondering if the evil Omar would win, and that is exactly what one got. This is the sort of book that leaves you thinking about the characters long after you turn the final page. I eagerly await the fourth book by this talented writer and urge you to read all her titles, each one very different, but all fast moving page turners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleased to recommend this good story! 21 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I understand The Necromancer to mean: a black magician who communes & converses with the dead to try & predict or influence the future!In this story this is Omar who is the evil destructive wizard; versus Michelle the opposite, perhaps a healer & preserver of life; who has come to the Hawaiian island of Oahu to escape a violent sex attack & who's trying to move on from her physical & psychological scars. Omar sees his future through Michelle and aims to seduce her; whereas Michelle is plucking up courage to take part in a sexual relationship after her traumatic experiences but will past events be explained... There's witchcraft, rape, murder, drugs, rites, rituals & unexplained power from Omar & his followers. There's gradual realisation & awareness with Michelle, her new friends & colleagues, that the mysterious fast paced events that involve Omar & his followers show they are powerful, dangerous enemies that need defeating. Pamela M Richter is a comparatively new indie author whose work within this paranormal theme shows considerable promise. She's researched carefully the psychology and physiology of the rape & subsequent effects on Michelle. The story also shows careful & accurate research went into other areas for example,knowledge of the pagan/Wiccan religion rites & rituals; plus the geography & culture of the beautiful Hawaiian islands come to life through her rich & varied choice of language. How it ends you need to read for yourself & it's a bargain buy at present. The more discerning & critical reader will pick up on occasional spelling, syntax & grammatical errors however, these are few & far between & do not distract from the story. I would offer a word of caution to those who've endured sex attacks & those with severe arachnophobia that this may make uncomfortable reading for you.
I hovered between awarding this 4 or 5 stars but believe in encouraging new authors so gave 5! I look forward to Ms Richter's next work!

3.0 out of 5 stars Its ok - average. 1 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Michelle is subjected to brutal rape that destroyed her life and trust in men. She escapes to Hawaii to start her new life, but danger follows her in the form of Omar, a man who describes himself as a necromancer.

My main issue with the book is the character Omar, as a character he just doesn't seem right. I think the problem is the amount of time in the book that he is moaning/complaining about his life, and to be fair you just want him to get on and be evil! He is supposed to be the bad guy!

On the other had the character Vincent is great. I love the fact that he wants to do right, but with Suzanna especially he goes about it the wrong way. Vincent desperately wants to stop Omar's evil work, and enlists one of his students, Suzanna to join Omar's coven. Unfortunately this goes badly wrong.
Michelle's blossoming relationship with Nakamura is very heart-warming, and you feel a big sigh of relief that Michelle made this decision.

On the whole, it's not too bad a book. I think there are parts of the book that are too long, and all you want to do is get through these parts to where the action is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read I Couldn't Put Down! 6 Sep 2011
By pumpkin - Published on Amazon.com
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. Omar the gorgeous charming man who just bought out the top floor of her building seems like a good start...if it wasn't for his strange looking eyes holding her back....

Nackamura is the head of the company Michelle works for and he lives in Japan. He has noticed her good work with financial reports over the last two years. He is so impressed with her work that he has decided to come to Hawaii to meet her and offer her a job as his personal assistant in Japan. When Nakamura arrives in Hawaii he automatically finds Michelle attractive but he can't understand her reaction to him. He is used to people reacting warmly when they meet him with his red hair and freckles but Michelle seems to be extremely nervous. He chalks it up to what he read in Michelle's employee report about her having been attacked and after he gets her comfortable and offers her the job he vows to be strictly professional with her, no matter how pretty and smart he thinks she is. He has no idea how hard he's about to fall for his pretty new assistant or the troubles and adventures that lie ahead.

Omar had a tough childhood; his mother died when he was very young and his father never wanted him. As he grew up he took a strong interest in his power over animals and his study in witchcraft. It didn't take long for him to discover he is a very powerful Necromancer (as he likes to call himself). Omar has witch cults that follow him all over the world that help him in his evil tasks. However, Omar has one thing in mind when he came to Hawaii and he's not leaving till he gets what he wants. God help anyone who gets in his way.

There are a few other characters like Lucifer the evil kitten (god I loved him!!!) or the evil giant Sam Stroker with the ugly face and missing tongue....

This is an excellent book for anyone who loves suspense or the study of witchcraft. Although this book has a scary undercurrent, it's also lighthearted and even funny at times. It really shows the power of recovery and friendships as well as love. The author does a beautiful job of switching point of views of characters through out the book without making it confusing or boring. I could hardly believe how much I loved every character even the evil ones! The romance is there but it's not a large part of the book. What I liked about the romance is that the love interest is not the gorgeous love at first sight type you read about all the time. It takes a while to happen and it's his personality she falls for not his looks (and you have gotta love that refreshing change). This book had no filler in it; every last bit had to do with the plot and was very interesting. All in all it was a very good EXCITING read that I could not put down! When all the characters above come together is just makes for a quirky, scary, exciting, passionate, fun read!

4.0 out of 5 stars A well written PNR story 12 July 2011
By Ezinwanyi - Published on Amazon.com
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 24 Jan 2011
By Laurie (Cat Herder Extraordinaire) - Published on Amazon.com
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 6 Feb 2011
By C. Watkins - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Paranormal, A Must Read 1 Oct 2011
By The Kindle Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I would like to say that I really enjoyed this book. I was so into the story that I couldn't put it down. The main character, Michelle, went through a trauma that many people couldn't live through. She didn't let that stop her and she became stronger, even though she faced many obstacles.

Her best friend Heather helped her when she was down. Omar was someone that you wanted to see something bad happen to because of the way he used women and his ego. You felt sorry for the women he used even though they were doing things wrong. I would really love to meet a man like Rob. He's the right man for a strong woman like Michelle.

This book had some comedy, love, and suspense. I would read it again. Great author and I can't wait to read more from her in the future. - Crystal Newman, from The Kindle Book Review
