Even love can die without trust.
Angel’s brother, Isaac, has returned home, and the pair begins to make slow and awkward attempts back to each other. Learning how to be a brother to a grown man instead of a parental figure has Angel adjusting his behaviors and habits, and Isaac still remains a mystery. Was it merely entering adulthood that turned Isaac away from an overprotective Angel, or does Isaac carry a secret that will keep them from finally being a real family?
Daniel Macavoy, Angel’s new apprentice, is torn between his bond with Angel and the grasping machinations of his father. Dealing with a traumatized apprentice with dangerous holes in his magical education, saving Daniel may be harder than Angel first thought—especially since the biggest problem is not revenge, but guilt.
The one shining beacon in his life is Simeon, Elder vampire of Boston’s only Bloodclan. Four hundred years old and sexy as sin, Simeon is warrior and sage, patient and cunning. The strength Angel draws from Simeon’s devotion and the newborn mate-bond between them is steadfast and true…and the fount of death magic that animates the undead lord places Angel in the midst of a power struggle for control over himself, his lover, and his family.
Through it all, Angel is beleaguered by the unwanted attention of a troll-hybrid, the adventures of a dragon in the city, and a serial killer has decided to hunt the back alleys and midnight streets of Boston.
The Necromancer’s Dilemma is the continuation of Angel and Simeon’s story and yet another unforgettable book in the series. In this book we see how their bond and their relation grow.
Angel and Simeon’s beautiful bond and their chemistry is very evident right from the first page. I loved that their relationship and their love grew stronger in this story and what I loved the most is the unconditional support and love they give each other. No matter what the circumstance they both are always there for each other. Their relationship and everything about them touched my heart and made me fall in love with them more. Apart from their love story the story also focuses on Isaac and Daniel and Angel’s bond and relation with them. I loved that they were growing and evolving on their own and that they are finding their place after being lost. I cannot forget the cute Eroch, who is more endearing than book one. This book like the first one is action packed and full of intrigue. What I love about this series is that as much as it is also about love story of a necromancer and a vampire, it is also about action, magic, family, friends and growing and facing new challenges.
The Necromancer’s Dilemma is an action packed, sexy, fun, emotional and heartwarming story and a beautiful addition to the series. I also loved the bonus story at the end. This book is a must read for all M/M Paranormal fans.
