Matthew Adrion is an Earth cop who came through a portal to Necropolis on a case, died, and was resurrected as a zombie. Unable to return home, he works as a private investigator on the very mean streets of this shadowy, dark city. Matthew is hired by an attractive half-human, half-vampire named Devona to recover a mystical artifact called the Dawn Stone. The two battle for their un-lives against genetically altered werewolves and cyber-vampires as they race to find the stone before its devastating power brings sunlight to this world of eternal darkness: destroying Necropolis forever.

    A must read

    Ever wonder where the creatures of myth and legends went when humanity became too aggressive and technologically advanced. They used a portal to take them to another realm and built the great city of Necropolis which is formed in the shape of a pentagram. Each point on the Pentagram is ruled by a Dark Lord who has dominion of the creatures in his holding. Vampires, lycanthropes, witches, shades and zombies co-exist in an uneasy peace policed by the Sentinels, eight foot Golems.............. While working on a serial killer case, Detective Matt Adrian follows the murderer into Necropolis where he metes out justice before he is killed and becomes a self-willed intelligent zombie. Preservative spells to keep him from rotting away fail and Matt has two days left to find a way to restore his body. Devona, the daughter of Master Vampire Lord Galm, hires him to find the Dawn that was stolen from her father¿s collection. It could destroy Necropolis by bringing light into a world that knows only darkness. Matt hopes that Galm would be so grateful that he would find a way for the ex-policeman to keep on existing. Of course there are various people and creatures that would rather see them dead than succeed.................................. NECROPOLIS as a dark fantasy book that doesn¿t take its plot too seriously so it will appeal to fans of Piers Anthony¿s Xanth series with its witty puns, satiric humor and eccentric characters. It is an interesting world to visit and the hero of Tim Waggoner¿s work is a very likeable being (for a zombie that is), one that readers will want to read about in future novels centered at the magical city of NECROPOLIS..................... Harriet Klausner
