When bodies go missing from the cemetery, Lincoln and the Ministry of Curiosities investigate. But not Charlie. As a housemaid at Lichfield Towers, she doesn't get involved in Ministry business.
Instead, she conducts investigations of her own. She searches for details about her real mother, and makes inquiries into Lincoln's background. What she learns has the power to destroy the fragile trust they've built, or bring them closer together.
As secrets are revealed, and investigations don't go as planned, Charlie finds her necromancy sucking her into a whirlpool filled with betrayal, lies and danger.

Her majesty's necromancer
Very well written. Great story that left me wanting more! Anxiously awaiting the next book in this series!
Can't wait for the third book
The main character grates on my nerves but the writing is great as usual. This author has a sort of formula that I'd noticed from her other trilogies that soured over time for me, but with this one it feels like she's mixed it up a bit and it feels more comfortable and fresh. It's a good read, better than the first installment of this series, but unfortunately I can't really bring myself to stomach the main character, which is just a personal feeling on my end I believe and doesn't reflect the writing.
