Isyllt Iskaldur, newly oath-broken necromancer and exiled from the land she has called home for many years, returns to the Empire she very recently worked to bring down. She is now trying to to find a new place for herself and her companion, the ex-prostitute Moth. However, she finds herself embroiled in an age-old battle against ancient forces that threaten not only the Empire, but the whole world.

I am a massive fan of the Necromancer Chronicles and by this third volume, I don't care who knows it. Fantasy has been lost in the Tolkien quagmire for so many years, but authors like Downum are taking something overly familiar and injecting it with new life. She does this by placing characters who could very well live and breath in our world and puts them into the environs of the fantastic. Yes, we have magic, ghosts, demons and vampires, but we have flawed characters who get depressed, annoyed, lost and overwhelmed and even make bad decisions that they must face the consequences of. This is why I love Issylt as a character. Would I like her as a friend? Probably not, as she's quite messed up, but watching her battle her situation and still try to do the right thing has me hooked.

I really hope this series continues, and I was pleased to see in Downum's blog that she is currently working on a series featuring a certain transgender royal concubine from the Bone Palace that quite frankly stole the show.

I am certainly watching this space!
