In a fun and funny new read by author Casey Chaplin, Necromancy...And Other Mystical Things is a story that will have readers laughing and obsessively turning pages from the start all the way through until the final page. Follow the story of protagonist Chip as he discovers, with the help of his roommate Mort, that he just might be a necromancer, one who has the ability to not only raise the dead, but also control them. He's not quite sure why he's developed this power, but the overwhelming smell of death that starts to emanate from his body is a sure sign. And when Chip's beloved girlfriend, Ellie, goes missing, and he finds that she's been kidnapped by a former general of Hell's Army, he realizes that his new found ability might just be necessary. With Mort's voodoo witch doctoring skills and the help of a local shop keeper who's also a secret djinn, Chip's prepared to do anything, even go to war with Hell's former minions, to get Ellie back. Will he succeed? You'll need to read the book to find out!

I very much enjoyed Necromancy...And Other Mystical Things. Author Casey Chaplin has a humorous and unique voice that lends itself easily to this genre. Readers will be able to relate to protagonist Chip, even with his supernatural powers and unusual circumstances, and will find the fast pacing and excellent scene setting of the work completely fantastic! I highly recommend this book to any reader looking for a funny book with a supernatural twist, or to anyone looking for a unique and creative new read in general. I look forward to reading more from the promising author, Casey Chaplin, in the very near future, and hope that he's already hard at work on his next book!
