Title: Hold Me Closer, Necromancer
Author: Lish McBride
Summary: Sam is just your ordinary college drop-out passing the time working in a fast-food restaurant and hanging out with friends. It’s a rather unremarkable, bland life until a disturbing encounter with Douglas, a powerful necromancer, changes everything. Douglas senses Sam’s previously undetected and undeveloped powers as a necromancer and believes him to be a threat with which to be swiftly dealt. Now Sam has a sinister new archenemy bent on converting him to an evil apprentice or getting rid of him altogether, the undeveloped talent for raising the dead and controlling them, a re-animated friend who is missing her body from the neck down, and a hot werewolf girl for company.
