100 Books in 2012: Book 4 "Hold me closer, Necromancer"
Usually, I don't go in for overly dark comedy, but I couldn't put Lish McBride's novel down. Sam is a college dropout who might just spend the rest of his life flipping burgers if it weren't for the fact that he's a Necromancer: he can communicate with and control the dead. This might not be a problem, if Sam had any idea how to use his powers. Pitted against a truly wicked villain, Sam is a likeable, flawed hero. Older teens will gravitate to this story, and fans of "The Hunger Games", "Vladimir Todd", and "Cirque Du Freak" will adore this novel.
