When the Dragon Lord's army destroys the city of Brenhaven, 10-year-old Garrett is badly burned and left for dead in the ashes. Rescued by a mysterious sorcerer, Garrett finds a new life, and learns a grisly trade in Wythr, the tomb-city of necromancers. Now, with the help of a ghoul, a zombie, and a girl who drinks blood, Garrett must discover the secrets buried beneath the ancient city and find a way to end the Dragon Lord's fiery reign.

This was a good coming of age story for young adult fantasy. A lot about dead bodies being used in different ways, so if you don't like a little grotesque then maybe it's not for you.
A young boy loses his family in a war and is badly burned. He is taken to a city where undead is common place and raised by a necromancer. He has a crush on a young vampire, and he has a ghoul for a best friend. There is a war with an empire going on in the background.
