One For Sorrow
by Jen Pretty
Do I raise the dead?
Am I careful not to let anyone know about my special skill?
From a very young age, I’ve known about the dangers of being found out as a necromancer, but when someone starts leaving dead animals on my door step, a dramatic escape and sudden arrival at a place where they teach kids to use magic throws my whole life plan off track.
Now I have some kind of extra special powers, a really annoying new pet bird and everyone wants me to raise murder victims– something I swore I would never do again.
But as evil lurking in the shadows starts jumping out to make itself known, I can’t exactly keep turning my back on humanity.
Day one of my new life sucks, but a hot vampire might make it suck a bit less. Err, whatever.
