    1 thought on “The Last Necromancer

    1. Engaging YA historical fantasy set in Victorian times Very much enjoyed it as a story that does not demand too much from you but entertaining Have never read this author before but she has several series set in this alternative Victorian world, which I will definitely explore further Great as a palate cleanser when you don t want to have to concentrate too hard and or late at night

    2. Rating 3.5 This book was an unexpectedly awesome surprise The Last Necromancer is currently free on and when I saw it being advertised as a paranormal mystery in the backdrop of Victorian London I thought it would just what I needed to get me out of my reading stump Needless to say the book delivered The Last Necromancer follows Charlotte Holloway, who was born with the ability to talk to spirits as well as the ability to reanimate corpses When her father became aware of this unnatural ability, [...]

    3. DNF.That being said, let me tell you why.SPOILERS The first half of this book was intriguing The plot was interesting The lore got my attention and my imagination running I had my reservations about the heroine, Charlie, but I figured this was a character evolution thing That she d grow and eventually become redeemable.No such luck Charlie, this great thief who has been living on the street for five years, gets caught stealing all the time and lacks any self preservation or survival skills the s [...]

    4. I surprisingly did not DNF this book I really wanted to, but I didn t The reason why I continued reading is pretty twisted But, in all fairness, that s when the author s writing develops evolves That s when readers have an OMG WHAT S GOING TO HAPPEN TO HER SOMEONE HELP HER Even describing it vaguely makes people intrigued.Whoever wrote the synopsis blurb really needs to rewrite it and put this tagline Frankenstein Retelling The synopsis blurb is wordy and doesn t do much justice The writing in t [...]

    5. I received this book for free from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review Genres Fantasy, Historical, Young AdultRating 3 3.5 My Thoughts The Last Necromancer is the first installment in The Ministry of Curiosities series by author C.J Archer Set in 1889 Victorian London, Charlotte Charlie Holloway has been living on the streets of London since her father called her the devil s daughter and kicked her out of the [...]

    6. This book tells the story of Charlotte, a girl who disguises as a boy to make life easier on the streets She has another secret she is necromancer, a person that can rise the dead She is the only one in the world and she is wanted She must learn to protect herselfARACTERS I loved Charlotte Charlie, her power was so unique and unlike anything I ve read before She was also sarcastic and funny and great to read about Seth and Gus were amazing, they were just so funny and they totally cared about Ch [...]

    7. I really did want to like this book The premise was intriguing and it was generally well written, painting a dark and evocative image of Victorian London Yet, for all the horrible things that happened in the story, it never felt overly grim Archer has a nice sense of humour that really shows through in the dialogue.Although the novel quickly drew me in, by the half way mark I was beginning to grow disappointed The plot of this novel really is wafer thin and its many holes are glossed over by som [...]

    8. I honestly wasn t expecting much from this one.Freebies are very much a case of hit or miss Either they will surprise you or you ll question how you managed to work your way through the entire story In all honesty, I hadn t really been expecting this one to blow me away The reviews for this book were such a mix and match that I really wasn t sure what I was letting myself in for, but I was still curious to give it a read.You can imagine my surprise when I found myself addicted to the story.Don t [...]

    9. The premise was actually promising and the plot was interesting The lead heroine, Charlotte is funny and endearing However, the usual tropes, and unnecessary cliffhangers slowed down the otherwise funny and could be tight knit story A satisfactory readwill follow a maximum of three books later.

    10. The Last Necromancer is the thrilling first book in a new young adult historical fantasy series It follows Charlotte an eighteen year old girl who has been passing herself off as a young boy named Charlie for the past five years, after she unknowingly used her powers to make her dead mother come back to life and was disowned by her father Life on the streets is hard for both young boys and for women Things are going as usual until Charlie gets caught stealing an apple one day and is thrown into [...]

    11. The first half of this book was basically her being captured and held in some random castle by two incompetent idiots and one jerk face idiot Literally The captured her form the streets in the first few pages, and then until the half point of the book, it s about her trying to unsuccessfully escape And that could have been interesting besides from the fact that she is a total idiot for not asking the question hmmmmm, the person that you re actually looking for is me Maybe they could help me, I d [...]

    12. Charlotte has a gift like no other she can reanimate and control the dead Her gift puts her in grave danger as she hunted down by not one but two potentially dangerous men.I have to say that Charlie Charlotte is an incredibly strong female character She s been through a lot, even at the hands of her own father She took to the streets and managed to survive, all the while keeping secret her true identity She stays strong throughout the story, even when some really crazy stuff goes down.I enjoyed [...]

    13. It seems this is the week I m going to buy books with wrong expectations IThe Last Necromancer had everything I love an intriguing premise, well written prose with a dark twist And yet the book had a humorous undertone that clashed with the story We have a witch hunt, kidnapping, a staged attempted rape to force the heroine hand, and a life as a prisoner of the state But the biggest problem for me was the heroine who moves from an interesting and strong character to an infatuated girl in a short [...]

    14. 4.5 starsThe Last Necromancer was an engaging, entertaining, and thoroughly enjoyable book I couldn t put it down The characters are well developed and it s easy to form an opinion of them, whether good or bad.I gave it 4.5 stars instead of 5 due to some spelling and grammatical errors There are not many, but it can be very distracting for some readers.Overall, this was a fantastic read I m very much looking forward to the next books in this series I was given a free advanced copy of this book i [...]

    15. This was quite an original young adult fantasy which is rare in this genre there was really no romance though the characters were well portrayed I think this has potential as a series there were some slow parts in the plot but if book the next book is released soon I m likely to give it a shot.

    16. I had this book on my wishlist since forever, and I had it on my e reader since ages I mean, the story seemed quite intriguing to me, the mash up retelling thing was appealing and I have to say that I am quite a sucker for this kind of thing and I fell for it every damned time And the cover is simply wow so why I have waited so long to read it Now I need the sequel, and I need it now To be completely honest with you, it s not a perfect book and it s not a masterpiece, too but who cares I started [...]

    17. I m almost surprised by how much I enjoyed this It has quite a steam punk feel without actually being steampunk In many ways The Last Necromancer contains all the late Victorian era tropes you d expect for this time period of historical fantasy and while it doesn t do anything unexpected, the style is easy and engaging and the plot does pull you forward It s hard to resist Charlie who is both a cheeky nod to the ubiquitous Dickensian street orphan and a developing character in her own right I li [...]

    18. I was quite heartbroken to read the last of the third Freak House trilogy by C.J Archer It wasn t that I doubted she could write another series just as amazing, but I really grew to love each of the characters in that series with every book I always wanted .And she has achieved the same thing again with the first instalment of The Ministry of Curiosities series This fantastic book plays stage to a whole host of great new characters with their own secrets, motives and incentives From our feisty p [...]

    19. I will get straight to the point I found the main character very confusing and frustrating to no end A strange mix of living as a boy and embracing a boy s perspective, yet selecting the most inconvenient times to express decidedly feminine tendencies The silly, excessive kind of tendencies Moreover, you have almost zero idea of what is going on, and what it has to do with necromancy, for at least half the book In fact, necromancy plays almost no part in the story, and when it finally comes into [...]

    20. Un super univers tr s original L h ro ne a parfois des r actions un peu d biles mais on lui pardonne cause de son enfance.

    21. I absolutely loved this book, it was well written funny where it needed to be and series creepy in other areas I look forward to the next book in the series.

    22. 3.5 starsI enjoyed learning about Charlotte and her abilities Her life was definitely rough and set a dark tone for the book Can t wait to see what happens next.

    23. Let me start this review by saying I don t usually read about this sort of fantasy nor do I regularly read historical fiction but oh my goodness I thorougly enjoyed reading THE LAST NECROMANCER The whole story revolves around an 18 year old girl called Charlotte who has been cast out on to the streets by her father for being a necromancer someone who can raise the spirits of the dead and control them Living on the streets is tough for anyone but especially for a young innocent girl so Charlotte [...]

    24. For the most part I found this entertaining and enjoyable I had a few issues with it but nothing I feel like going on and on about The one exception would be the fact that Charley was able to successfully pull off being disguised as a boy This always feels unbelievable to me I was relieved when she was finally found out because then I no longer had to dwell on it.

    25. C.J Archer has become one of my most favorite authors I first found her when I stumbled upon The Medium series Couldn t get enough of her after that This book was just as wonderful It starts off with an immediate conflict for the heroine to overcome which serves to draw you in, easily convincing the reader that this is going to be a book worth delving into Something I ve noticed about this author s work is her ability to stretch out the tension between the heroine and the love interest This is e [...]

    26. CW for attempted rape in this book multiple instances I knew going into this book that it probably wouldn t be the greatest thing I ve ever read, but I was hoping for a quick, entertaining read Unfortunately, I found large chunks to be so infuriating that it obliterated any enjoyment I found the writing pretty easy to read, and I got through it quickly Charlie s snark was funny, for the first half However, the plot overall was pretty weak, and the characterisation fell apart Charlie has lived on [...]
