*I received an ecopy of this book via Gay Romance Reviews. This has not influenced my review.*

This was a sweet story that combined romance, friendship, mystery, and necromancy.

All the main characters were sweethearts! And that made for sweet romance and friendship as well. Oliver was used to people not understanding him or not being ok with his needs or ways of doing things (Oliver is autistic), but Felipe appreciated Oliver for exactly who he was. Felipe was sort of a workaholic and had his own worries and self-doubt, but Oliver helped him to take steps forward that he wouldn’t have on his own. And Gwen was an understanding and protective friend, and she and Oliver clearly cared about each other.

The mystery was interesting, and the whole story involved necromancy (Oliver) and healing powers (Felipe) and other types of supernatural abilities, which is always fun. It’s all set in 1890s New York, so you also get a historical setting, though with magic and supernatural a known part of society.

This is the first in a series, but there’s no cliffhanger, all the threads wrap up really well. I could be wrong, but I’m guessing the next book will revolve around the same characters, just with a different mystery to solve.

Overall, this was an enjoyable book!

    I used to read the Anita Blake book series by Laurell K Hamilton. The series was about a woman who was a necromancer and a vampire hunter. She falls in love with a vampire. The early books of the series were where Anita would solve mysteries too. But then the books were mostly sex books. Then weird sex books. My mother liked the books, but they got too weird for her so she stopped reading them. I read them up to where Anita was supposed to marry the vampire but didn’t. I stopped reading them because they weren’t really fun to read anymore.
