With the defeat of the evil Douglas behind him, Sam LaCroix is getting used to his new life. Okay, so he hadn’t exactly planned on being a powerful necromancer with a seat on the local magical council and a capricious werewolf sort-of-girlfriend, but things are going fine, right?
Well . . . not really. He’s pretty tired of getting beat up by everyone and their mother, for one thing, and he can’t help but feel that his new house hates him. His best friend is a werebear, someone is threatening his sister, and while Sam realizes that he himself has a lot of power at his fingertips, he’s not exactly sure how to use it. Which, he has to admit, is a bit disconcerting.
But when everything starts falling apart, he decides it’s time to step up and take control. His attempts to do so just bring up more questions, though, the most important of which is more than a little alarming: Is Douglas really dead?

I am one of those people that Cannot read a series out of order…Necromancing The Stone is book two in a series. The first book Hold Me Closer Necromancer. I haven't read it all yet.  I started book two, but I just felt like I should already know these characters and got the feeling  that I was missing something.

 What I read was good.   I understood everything that was going on.  I think if you don't mind reading a series out of order it would be fine and you probably wouldn't really notice that you missed the first book, that's how good the writing is. I will finish the book because it did manage to catch my attention…I'm just going to read Hold Me Closer Necromancer first.
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Necromancing the Stone at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
