Created Darkly by Gena D. Lutz
Necromancer Kris Chase's purpose is simple. Blindly raise the dead for the primary elite, self necro-governed group, the Center. The problem is, she couldn't care less about what the Center expects from her. Instead, she is more content with snuffing out the life-force from every vile creature she can get her hands on; the same monsters her brethren indiscriminately create… for the right price.
Until the life of someone dear to her is threatened.
With the stakes raised insurmountably, she finds herself bound by desperation to create the very darkness she always fought against being consumed by, going against everything she has ever believed in.
Review by Paulina Woods
Vampires. There is so much lore out there and so many takes on how they are created, how they act and what they can do. I love most of them, hate a few (Twilight) and kinda shrug at the rest. Gena fell into the love list.
In a world were people pay to be Reanimated by a Creator vampires are commonplace. I was drawn in from the beginning and had fun talking to the characters and them talking back…ok not really. This book has all the good stuff vampires, ghost, ghouls and hellhounds. Did I saw ghost? I love Jude, the resident ghost. He makes me want to be a ghost and I actually fell more in love with him than with Rush, the main male character.
I usually hate first person books but this was one I can read again. Instead of staying with just Kris POV Gena also let us follow Rush POV and this made me feel like I wasn’t missing anything.
This is a great opening to a series I believe will be a big hit.
