Goodreads.com Description: “Hailey Devareaux, inexperienced yet “all-knowing” 19 year old Necromancer, couldn’t care less what the world had to offer her. Five years after her mother encountered a powerful seer—albeit a dead one—they uprooted their entire clan and moved to New Orleans for a rare supernatural conjunction. Dangerous didn’t begin to describe the reality of Necromancers living in a city so rich with history involving the celebration of the dead, but Hailey didn’t have to worry. Her abilities hadn’t matured.
What good was Necromancy when she couldn’t save her mother? Hailey hadn’t been strong enough to bring her back—not even to say goodbye.
While Hailey moped around during her family’s celebration of the Day of the Dead, she met Bobby; if only she had realized he was dead before she started talking to him. Robert “Bobby” Duval died one year ago. When he died, the veil between this world and the next was at it’s thinnest. It should’ve been easy for him to cross over, but something kept him from doing so. On the day he met Hailey, he prepared to finally move on, but a moratorium was placed on departing souls—the veil, too volatile to pass into the great beyond. His chance at his afterlife once more denied.
Based on a cryptic letter her clan received, Hailey is elected by the Necromancers to embark on the dangerous quest to restore the veil. Bobby joins Hailey and helps her understand her powers.
Will Hailey give up her bitterness against the craft and her own fear of death, and forgive herself in order to embrace her purpose—to be the next leader of their clan? Will she embrace her power as well as help save the supernatural community by sealing the veil once more and will she help Bobby cross over to finally be at peace?”

The Supernatural Chronicles: The Necromancers by Morgan Wylie was very interesting.
This installment did not have a typical love relationship. Instead Wylie gave readers a strong, heartfelt relationship between a ghost and a necromancer. The ghost named Bobby was my favorite character. He had accepted his death and was ready to move on but didn’t know how. His selfless nature was endearing.
It took me a minute to warm up to the main character, Hailey. She was the second supernatural in this series who didn’t want her powers. And, much like the succubus, Hailey had no idea of just how powerful she could be. Once she started embracing her strengths, Hailey became more likable. Instead of wallowing in her own issues, she realized she could help others.
The mysterious dark stranger, Rafe, was intriguing. I’ve read other books with characters named Rafe and they have all been angels. I’m interested in reading more about this particular character. Will he be an angel or just a dark spirit?
The Necromancers is the first book I’ve ever read by Wylie, and it won’t be my last. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more about these characters.
