The Necromancer’s Rogue

Susie Dinneen Review The Necromancer's Rogue

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to meet Jyx, the hero of The Necromancer’s Apprentice. I immediately liked him for his impatience, and watched with equal parts of glee and horror as the mummy chaos unravelled. (I mean, if you’re surrounded by mummies you may as well bring them back from the dead, right?) My only complaint then was that the book was too short.

I’m even luckier now because Icy Sedgwick has just released the second instalment of her Underground City series, The Necromancer’s Rogue. It’s a great expansion of the Underground City, in which we meet new characters and get embroiled in the world of the city and the people and creatures who live in it.

The new characters are wonderful, from the very creepy Mr Gondavere (what is he up to? It can’t be any good) to Vyolet the kick-ass Shadowkin. The Necromancer General Eufame is back too, and this book starts with Jyx having to rescue her from the dreaded House of Correction, before they can stop Mr Gondavere and his wicked plans.

Icy Sedgwick is a wonderful writer. The descriptions are rich and vivid, bringing this fast-paced tale to life. Read the Necromancer’s Rogue for a whole lot of fun.
