My Review

The Necromancer is a text heavy read, yet I had trouble putting it down once I became sucked into the deep plot. This fantasy novel is chock full of tantalizing descriptions and characters. I am still trying to wrap my mind around the idea that a teenager wrote this novel because it was such a complex story with wonderful dialogue.

The necromancer character was surprisingly different than I initially imagined - a pleasant surprise! I would have to say the fae characters were memorable for me. Kudos to this young author for giving us an unusual twist to the undead and dark fantasy genre.

Author Biography

Hello! I’m called Alex Stargazer. That’s not my real name. And no: I’m not going to tell you. I like a little mystery. What I will tell you: I’m sixteen. I have a passion for fantasy; and a soft spot for romance. I like to write about anything fantastical (elves are a favourite; dragons too) and my favourite book’s either Narnia or

Northern Lights—never could decide, poor vacillating me. Anyway: give my stuff a read. You might like it. No, really; I got fans. (If you listen carefully at night, you’ll hear them whispering my name. They’re shy, are my fans; but they’re a determined lot.)

PS: if you want to know more, email me at alexstargazerwriterextraordinaire@outlook.com. Yes, the address is deliberately long; I don’t like stalkers. They scare me.
