Chronicles of the Necromancer

Im absolutely loving Gail Z. Martins Summoner series at the moment. Im re-reading the third book in the series as the fourth has just been released.
I was frustrated with it the first time around as the book ended and left its readers hanging for a year unttill she wrote the conclusion. I hate that. I prefer to wait until they're all written before I buy a book especially when there is not even an end to a subplot. Complaint over, Gail Z. Martin is a master story teller and is somebody who probably grew up loving Halloween as she captures the dark winter feel of spirits and ghosts perfectly. The main characters are highly likeable, even the women in it are no mere damsels in distress and are quite willing to pick up a sword and fight having been trained from childhood for war. The vampire characters are very likable and give you that real goosebump feel thanks to her brilliant descriptions. Much better than the first two in the series, the third is excellent and I cannot wait to get stuck into the fourth book, Dark Lady's Chosen.
