In a world where magic is real and evil walks amongst humanity, a young sorcerer is beset upon by enemies, both old and new. Angelus Salvatore is the only necromancer in all of Boston, and his name is whispered warily by the undead and fellow sorcerers alike. He and his brother Isaac are the lone survivors of an attack by an army of the undead, in which Angel used a spell so powerful it forever marked his place in history. Now, years later, Angel struggles to balance his career as a teacher of the higher magical arts, his role as big brother, and a tenuous relationship with an Elder vampire from the local clan. When his brother's boyfriend is used as a pawn in a mysterious plot to draw Angel out, Angel is once again drawn back into the old hostilities that fueled the Blood Wars and led to his family's death.
Leaning on others for help is something Angel cannot do, and while he searches for clues into who may be targeting him and his brother, Angel finds his heart steadily growing occupied with Simeon, Elder and vampire. Dealing with death magic and vampires on a daily basis may leave Angel jaded when it comes to life and staying that way, but the more time he spends fending off the ancient vampire's attention and affections, the more he realizes he wants to give in.
Can Angel find out who wants him dead, and keep his heart safe in the process? How can he fall for a vampire, when his whole family was torn apart by an army of the undead?
Death stalks the streets of Boston's historic Beacon Hill....and there is no one more suited to battle against death than a necromancer.
“Prohibe eos,” Angel whispered, and the two vamps he held leashed to his will blitzed out, attacking the approaching vamps.
His attackers were not expecting the two vamps they were presumably coming to assist to suddenly turn and attack them—two of the other vamps ended up thrown over the crowd, landing on some tables as they fell to the ground. Drinks and screams spilled out, and Angel’s unwilling defenders spun, knocking back two more vamps closing in on him from behind.
Angel kept the power pouring in, the tear in the veil held open by his willpower and nerves. Humans were screaming, confused, running over each other, pushing back against the tables and the bar, the dance floor emptying. Angel yanked on the blood in the two vamps and pulled them back to him, both of them crouched at his feet, hissing, fangs out and claws extended.
Angel had no idea who screamed it, but the bar was shocked into motionlessness. Everyone froze where they stood,...
I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I love reading gay romance novels, but they tend to be a tad predictable. This book gave me so much more, and I enjoyed it thoroughly! Angel is a necromancer, a...

Having been a heavy reader for a few years now I've discovered that most books I read either come into the good, ok or rubbish category. However, every now and then I find a book that stands out for all the right reasons and is a thorough joy to...
I read a few of the other reviews on this story and it seems to be an editing problem that some are complaining about. Well, I did see one or two but let me just say that I was dragged so quick into the story, if there were major editorial...

The Necromancer's Dance is a wonderful mix of romance, suspense, and magic. In some ways, with it's mix of vampires, werewolves, demons, dragons, and humans with magical powers, it reminds me of Kim Harrison's The Hollows series.
Angel is a...
