The fourth thrilling installment of Gail Z Martin's Chronicles of the Necromancer series sees Tris's kingdom on the brink of collapse. The ate of Jonmarc Vahanian is also hanging in the balance, as the vampires and the undead enter into a deadly civil war - and threaten to unleash an even greater danger onto the world.

"Wonderful Story, Poorly Told."
As much as I love these books in their printed form, I was terribly disappointed by this format. While I would gladly recommend this series to a friend in its written form, I would be a poor friend indeed if I inflicted this format on anyone I considered a friend. Unfortunately the narrator spoiled this whole series for me, making the story feel flat, and many of the characters sound ridiculous, or like something from a comic book.
Again I use the written format to respond to this question, as this format was ruined. The thing I liked best about the stories was the varied characters, and the depth that Gail Z. Martin gave each of them, without spending thirty pages describing them.
I happen to know that two further books were published to round out this series, but as yet are not available in audio format. If they are ever translated into audio, please DON'T allow Peter Ganim to narrate them.
This is one of my favorite series, and it was totally ruined by a poor narrator. I freely admit that I am dreadful at reading aloud, but I have the kindness and good grace not to inflict my inadequacies on others
