Suicide Kings, Eric Carter

Necromancer Eric Carter returns in Stephen Blackmoore's dark urban fantasy series—where he finds himself caught in a family feud with fatal consequences

Being a necromancer is hard enough for anyone, but Eric Carter is far from just anyone. He died five years ago. Then he took the throne, powers, and personage of an ancient Aztec god. Then he was resurrected in his long-dead grandfather’s renewed body. So, he’s not too keen on taking on any more headaches.

Of course, that doesn’t last long.

Initially asked to investigate a gruesome murder, Eric is reluctantly dragged into a power struggle within the feared and revered Werther wizarding clan. The lone surviving heir is desperate to protect herself and her father’s legacy from an extremely violent takeover. And if she’s going to come out on top, she needs a merciless magic brawler with Eric’s guts, brains, and magical brawn.

But in this fight, all those things combined still might not be enough to survive.
