The Last Necromancer (The Ministry of Curiosities, #1)

Victorian London: For five years, Charlotte (Charlie) Holloway has lived as a boy in the slums. But when one theft too many gets her arrested, her only means of escape lies with a dead man. Charlie hasn’t raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time, her father banished her. This time, she brings even more trouble upon herself.

People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her.

Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly “made” creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world – Charlotte – but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he’s been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will, and for an organization she doesn’t trust?

Because Lincoln and his ministry might be just as dangerous as the madman they’re hunting.

I have been just so not interested in reading or browsing or even looking at books lately, which is really weird for me because I LOVE to buy books, it gives me a great rush, and I love adding to my bookshelves. I pre-ordered this months ago and it was released earlier this month, and CJ’s one of my favourite authors, so of course I needed to pre-order it.

    I’ve been feeling the same way! Over the last month I only purchased 3 books plus some comics. I’m not really sure why it is, but at least my wallet is thanking me. 🙂
