The Necromancer is the story of Michelle.  She is the survivor of a brutal attack that occurred while she was living in Vegas.  Michelle decides to start life anew in Hawaii, and begins taking her life back.  She is a very career driven woman, and she learns karate for protection and empowerment.  Her only problem is her social life; it is stifled because of her fear of men.  She meets Omar, and decides he is the one that will get her over her fear, but something about him just isn’t right.

I may be all alone in this one, but I liked Omar’s character.  There is nothing that is endearing about him, but he is the perfect villain.  He is dark, cruel, strange, and quite frankly psychotic.  It’s been a while since I stumbled upon a character so devious, and it was a welcome change.  Michelle is the total opposite; as Omar put it, they are yin and yang.  Despite her fears, she is a very strong woman who has endured unspeakable trauma.  I found her character to be admirable.

This story was different from anything I have read in a while.  I thought the beginning moved a little slow, but after that I was really caught up in the book.  It was well written and easy to follow, and most of all very imaginative.  Richter didn’t take the path of the popular paranormal romance, although romance is hinted at.  This book was almost sinister!

If you like your paranormal reads with a little edge or a fan of books with sorcerers and magic, give this story a try.  If you are a fan of horror and suspense, this creepy read is a must!

THE NECROMANCER -  She picked the worst guy to have an affair with! –  Evil stalks in Hawaii                            A Paranormal, Suspense Thriller

Michelle was brutally attacked in her locked hotel room in Las Vegas. The police didn’t believe her and thought she must have lured a man up to her hotel room for a little sexual adventure, which went dangerously out of control.

Michelle sustained visible scars from the terrifying and almost lethal attack, but pure fear motivated the move from her home in California to Hawaii. She’s scared her attacker will come back. She’s sure the next time he’ll kill her. Now she has a successful career and she figures abstinence is an acceptable, if lonely, way to live.

Michelle decides that an affair with a wickedly handsome man who moves into her building might cure her of the humiliating, embarrassing, and uncontrollable anxiety attacks which plague her whenever she finds herself alone with a man.

How could she know that she made the worst possible choice?

Omar Satinov, the man Michelle has chosen, is a secret, whispered legend across several continents. His lure is a mystical religion based upon Witchcraft; his hook, the addictive herbal products he sells his followers. But does he really have supernatural powers, as many of his disciples believe?
