Publisher's Summary

For five years Charlotte (Charlie) Holloway has lived as a boy in the slums. But when one theft too many gets her arrested, her only means of escape lies with a dead man. Charlie hasn't raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time her father banished her. This time she brings even more trouble upon herself.
People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her.
Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly "made" creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world - Charlotte - but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he's been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will and for an organization she doesn't trust?
Because Lincoln and his ministry might be just as dangerous as the madman they're hunting.

same old characters and story

If you like stupidly stubborn, bodice-heaving, corset-burning protagonists, Archer's for you!! Tired old crap over and over ad nauseum.

Great start to a new series

I loved the interplay between Charlie and Lincoln. A mix of likeable and disagreeable characters with an interesting story.

Disappointingly Uneventful

Would you try another book written by C. J. Archer or narrated by Shiromi Arserio?

Unfortunately there was far too much unrequited affection and way too little actual necromancy. A promising start does not continue through the rest of the novel. Even the climatic battle with the 'bad guy' at the end was a bit too angsty.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

There was nothing at all wrong with the performance. The narrator did as good a job as possible, given the material.
