Publisher's Summary

Avery Special is the world's only living necromancer, and she's pretty bad at it. She also just moved to LA, where trouble has been waiting for a necromancer. Trouble that doesn't care how strong she is or that she's only 15. Monsters, magical artifacts, occultists, and television producers only care that a real necromancer is back.

There are definitely upsides. Chris, Annie, Sue, and Peggy have their own creepy superpowers and are the best friends a girl could hope to make on her first day in a new city. Her Pudgy Bunny coloring book can teach her more than a stack of grimoires. Her ghostly ancestors are so eager to help it's annoying.

Not that she has time for any of that, because Chris and Sue are both in love with her.

better than the previous book

the last book didn't stand out on its own well. this one did for sure.

I'd like to see the author get back to a mainstream set of characters rather than jumping around every book. but I'm hopeful he is building up to something.

slow narrator

the only real issue is how slow the narrator was.
she reads 30% slower than most other narrators.
i had to crank the listening speed up to 1.3x to make it sound like story was at normal speeds instead of being read in slow motion.

that being said this was much better thant the last book.
if there aren't going to be any more stories about penny then out of the protagonists from the last two books Avery is a much more interesting character to follow in comparison to Magenta

Great story, slow narrator

This story was great except that the narrator reads at about 75% of the speed I'm comfortable with. Fortunately, the playback speed is adjustable.

This story also doesn't really fit the "please don't tell me parents" format, because there's nothing Avery needs to keep secret, except maybe the specifics of her adventures. However, that's a minor quibble. The characters are likeable, the story is great, and the world building is excellent. I recommend this to both fans and newcomers. One thing bums me out tho - I want more Lucy Far😭
