The riveting debut work from celebrated newcomer Lish McBride, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer drops a seemingly average boy into the adventure of a lifetime. Sam can't complain about much, even if his job isn't the most glamorous one around. But his world gets a whole lot more complicated when he crosses paths with Douglas, a necromancer who gets paid to raise the dead. Douglas thinks Sam might have the right touch for necromancing, and when this turns out to be all too true, Sam faces unimaginable dangers.

"Sam is a normal guy, he thinks, moving a bit aimlessly through life in a fast-food world in Seattle. What starts as horseplay leads to Sam's finding himself the target of a powerful evil force that can raise the dead. In a dual narration, Jonathan Ross portrays Sam, and Chris Sorenson offers a menacing, ominous tone for the mysterious power. Ross is adept on two levels: He crafts voices well, especially women, and he shines with Sam's sarcastic, self-deprecating tone. The writing and narration balance a bit of terror with comedic twists. Even those who think they hate the horror genre might want to give this a chance. M.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
