Her Majesty's Necromancer (Book 2 in the Ministry of Curiosities series) by CJ Archer

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.

I can't believe that I have never heard of the series or the author! Couldn't put the first book down an immediately launched into the second. Looking forward to many excellent days of reading.

I found this book to be a bit of a let down after the first in the series. There is not much that really happens between the pages of this slim volume apart from listening to Charlie moan on and on about how conflicted she is by Lincoln Fitzroy and her feelings towards him. We learn little else about any of the supporting cast either - although it becomes apparent that Seth has an eye for the ladies and that they seem to appreciate him too. Once you get past all the fluff there is a tale of body snatchers and the removal of what appear to be selected corpses from various graveyards around London. This is the perfect opportunity for Charlie to flex her talents and, indeed, she does to varying degrees of success. At least when she gets in to trouble this time she manages to rescue herself rather than waiting around for someone else to. Overall there is little character development here and the main story could probably have been told within 100 pages and has been padded out with interminable tales of sponge cake and tea. Add a dash of "forbidden" but reciprocated love in to the mix and you can spin it out to fill the book - sadly that is what it feels like. This is a shame because the writing itself is good and Ms Archer does evoke the scenes exceptionally well and her hand with dialogue is deft and sure. I have the third book already but I am not as excited about reading that as I was to get to this after the exceptional first book in the series.

I was really hoping for something more from this series, but after the second book I realized it's like countless others in the genre.

Loved this book.

Loved "Last Necromancer" ! "Her Magesties Necromancer" , I don't believe is even written by the same person. The characters are flat, the style is different. This is 'chic lit', the 'drama' is constant squabbles between Charlie and Lincoln. Plus the endless agony of when will I get kissed.
