Seattle’s newest paranormal leader, Sam is still recovering from his imprisonment in Douglas’s basement.  He has inherited the necromancer’s home, along with James, the shapeshifting assistant that still communicates with the ghost of Douglas.  Oh yes, Douglas even has nefarious schemes as a dead man.  As Brid father, the were leader, walks into the woods behind his den to investigate something amiss, he is murdered.  Brid, Sam’s new love, becomes the head of the pack and part of the council that Sam is to lead.  As they investigate the strange murder, no clues are found leading to anyone living.  With the help beyond the grave, the murderer is outed.  Despite the looney-tune antics of the shrubbery, statuary and garden gnomes, and the clever reparte, McBride successfully shows the difficulties of young people growing up to fulfill adult roles regarding family, love, honor and loyalty.  This was a delightful sequel to Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.  And yes,  the old gang are still part of the story.  I can see a three-peat in our future!
