Review of The Necromancer’s Daughter

The Necromancer's DaughterThe Necromancer’s Daughter by D. Wallace Peach
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A rereading fleshed out the conflicts and the connections among Aster, the adopted daughter of necromancer Barus (a crippled man), Joreh, the eventual romantic interest (son of an evil vicar and torn by Aster’s “healing,” and his father’s obdurate objections to it). An excellent worldbuilding exercise with dragons amidst various human and semi? humans in disparate regions. I loved the descriptions and similes that filled out character evolution and internal/external disputes eventually resolved. Lots of death and magic to bring people back to life through necromancy.  I’ll have to read more of the author’s works!

    1. Thanks, Deb. It seemed like there was more than enough exhaustive reviews by fans of this book by Diana already so I went for the short praise. I did enjoy the characters and the story! 🙂
