Stephen Blackmoore's dark urban fantasy series continues as hard-edged, hard-hitting necromancer Eric Carter finds himself surrounded by enemies who want him to suffer a fate worse than death by bringing him back to life.
When Carter comes to, he feels like Hell. Worse than hell. Every part of his body is on fire, his stomach is boiling acid, and he's coughing up some horrific black substance from his lungs. He's not feelingor lookinglike himself. All in all, not a jolly start to the day.
Unfortunately, that's about as good as its going to get. Because, as he soon learns, he's been dead for yearsuntil someone with some serious magical muscle decided to bring him back. But who could Carter have ticked off so badly they would expend such power just to return him to the mortal realm?
Oh, that's right: raging gods, sadistic demons, a very patient and vengeful djinn pretty much every nightmare in the monster's menagerie. And if Carter doesn't figure out why someoneor some thingis pulling the strings, his new life may have an even more gruesome end than his old one.
