The antebellum mansion sits isolated in the overgrown countryside like a forgotten temple. Within it lie the dark, twisting paths of a private library possessing secrets from across the ages. The collection of ancient and medieval occult manuscripts tell of conjuring spirits and raising the dead, of making contact with supernatural realms and beings usually forbidden to living mortals.
The house’s recently deceased owner was a reclusive former professor who transformed his home into a great library, but his desire for hidden knowledge and arcane power may have led him into madness, even death.
Disturbing specters now haunt the new occupants of the house, who turn to paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan for help. Ellie must unravel the mysteries of the occult library before she can banish its ghosts and make the house safe again for the living.
Even though this is the 12th book in the Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper series, it’s not getting old… if anything, each book makes me want more. The stories and adventures are all fresh, the ghosts are terrifying, the locations are all unique and spooky and the characters are full of wit and their personalities are a perfect balance to each other. Yeah, it’s not hard to tell that I’m kinda in love with Ellie and her crew. 😉
The Necromancer’s Library was not what I expected, but that’s nothing new when it comes to this series. A library should be anything but evil, right? Well this one was a combination of impressive and terrifying. There were quite a few twists, turns and surprises, as well as secrets kept by more than one person. There were also unexpected allies thrown into the mix. In other words, JL Bryan held nothing back.
There were also some ominous hints of things to come, which is also nothing new. This series isn’t slowing down at all and I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for Ellie and company next.
