Wishlist Wednesday: Hold Me Closer, Necromancer

A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.
(hosted by Book Chick City & Breaking the Spine)

Hold Me Closer, Necromancer
by Lish McBride
release date: 12 October 2010
Sam leads a pretty normal life. He may not have the most exciting job in the world, but he’s doing all right—until a fast food prank brings him to the attention of Douglas, a creepy guy with an intense violent streak.
Turns out Douglas is a necromancer who raises the dead for cash and sees potential in Sam. Then Sam discovers he’s a necromancer too, but with strangely latent powers. And his worst nightmare wants to join forces...or else.
With only a week to figure things out, Sam needs all the help he can get. Luckily he lives in Seattle, which has nearly as many paranormal types as it does coffee places. But even with newfound friends, will Sam be able to save his skin?

Why it's on my wishlist
I adore the title for some reason lol. Anyway, guy hanging between a choice between "good" or "evil" and the gathering of strangers into friends-by-circumstance appeals to me on many many levels. I'm really looking forward to the creepy-guy 8D

Ayanami Faerudo said...

Okay, I read the title first before focusing on the cover and the blurb and I thought it was a romance book that Mills and Boon normally prints. LOL, my mistake. Then I finally turned my attention on the cover and the synopsis and I think that it certainly is interesting.

TheBookishSnob said...

This looks like an amazing read. I don't think I'd seen this before so thanks for the heads up :)

Come by and see my WOW

Cass (Words on Paper) said...

Hmm...I think the appeal, for me, is that this appears to be in MALE perspective. I'll see what you think of it. :)

I love the title too -- it's really intriguing in a kind of incongruous way.
