Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Definitely not what I expected. I would recommend this to YA readers, specifically YA aged readers, with a specific sense of humor. Maybe fans of Christopher Moore, but this book is far more lighthearted than that. Lots of inane banter, which I would be into if it didn't sound like a neutered preteen version of Buffy-banter.
Maybe coming off of much darker more romancey necromancer stuff made this quick read less enjoyable. I don't know. I got a kick out of the titles of the chapters, but probably I came in with Expectations. I don't remember laughing at all, but then, most dialogue banter leaves me cold. The only writer of this genre I think can really amuse me the way McBride may have been aiming for is Sarah Rees Brennan. I am a joyless harridan but what are you gonna do?
