The second book in the Wendy Markland Series is Necromancer by Scott Harper. At the end of Predator of Prey, the first book, Wendy is reeling from the knowledge that vampires and werewolves truly exist and is attempting to recover from the death of her younger brother, Glen. Necromancer picks up two years later and not too much has changed. Wendy is still trying to track down any vampire she can find and destroy it, but it’s been a pretty arid two years, until she here’s about Pinewick, NJ and the walking dead.
I am quickly becoming a fan of Scott Harper and this series. I loved the first book and I love this one equally. I really admire the change up in this book, from vampires to other worldly “villains”. Scott once again delivers fully fleshed characters and introduces us to a new band of allies that Wendy can ultimately depend on. Wendy is beautiful and smart with an iron will, but she is flawed and vulnerable and this book definitely shows us those strengths and flaws. Wendy is someone we the readers are rooting for and can also identify with.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading book 3, Vindicated.
