"With most loose plot threads neatly tied off, there is still room for further adventures with Sam and his merry band. After all, they've got rhythm, they've got music, they've got the legions of the undead--who could ask for anything more?"
From the Publisher
Editors Note With the defeat of the evil Douglas behind him, Sam LaCroix is getting used to his new life. Okay, so he hadn't exactly planned on being a powerful necromancer with a seat on the local magical council and a capricious werewolf sort-of-girlfriend, but things are going fine, right?Well . . . not really. He's pretty tired of getting beat up by everyone and their mother, for one thing, and he can't help but feel that his new house hates him. His best friend is a werebear, someone is threatening his sister, and while Sam realizes that he himself has a lot of power at his fingertips, he's not exactly sure how to use it. Which, he has to admit, is a bit disconcerting. But when everything starts falling apart, he decides it's time to step up and take control. His attempts to do so just bring up more questions, though, the most important of which is more than a little alarming: Is Douglas really dead?
Annotation In HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER, Sam LaCroix's entire world was turned inside out when he found out that not only was he a necromancer, but that the most powerful necromancer in Seattle wanted him dead. It's been six weeks since Sam defeated Douglas, and everyone is attempting to be normal. That is, if normal means living in Douglas's scary creepy death house, where the lawn gnomes are on a hazing tear, Sam's best friend Ramon is getting used to being a werebear, and attempting to get along with a pukis named James. Not to mention the complications of his relationship with Brid, a part-werewolf, part-fey hound girlfriend. Even though Sam knows Douglas is dead, fishy things keep happening, and even worse, someone is threatening his little sister. And when tragedy inexplicably strikes, Sam knows that he's got to unravel whatever's going on or die trying. Filled with an inventive, hilarious cast of characters, wry death jokes, and a Bigfoot or two, this young adult fantasy is not to be missed.
