Review: The Necromancer's Betrayal
The Necromancer's Betrayal by Mimi Sebastian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was another great installment in the series. After the stellar intro to this world, we are thrown right into the zany life of Ruby the Necromancer/Demon. It was filled with sarcastic and witty banter, sexy love triangles, and a mystery to finally solve.
After the end of the last book, Ruby is left with an ex-boyfriend she still lusts over, werewolves who only slightly tolerate her, vampires who lust after her, and demons who want to control or mentor her. Oh, and she's got one real friend this whole entire mess, and she's a witch. Things are not looking the best for poor Ruby. On top of all this, she's been drafted by the demons to solve the mystery of who is creating supernatural mayhem, with the restriction that she can't do anything "unusual" with her power.
There are so many options for who the "big bad" is that it leaves your head spinning. Ruby really knows very little about most of the main players. There's the sexy vampire who oozes lust at her, the alpha werewolf who knows her true powers, the angry witch who is trying to beat her BFF for head of the coven, and lots of demons who just flat out hate her. Even the "good guys" in her life could be secret agents of evil! So, yeah, to temper the head-spinning mystery element, there's lots of love triangley goodness. Luckily that doesn't have to resolve itself in this book, or we wouldn't get as much awesome time with both sets of couples.
Overall, this series is still a real pleasure to read. The pace is fast, the writing is fun and quirky, and the characters are all wonderfully entertaining. I can't wait to see what happens next!
