When eighteen-year-old Judy Hudson discovers she’s a necromancer and sees first-hand the pain her powers can cause the dead, she just wants to deny who she is. The zombie plague is long over. She wants to find a more normal life, but that’s a challenge when a beautiful otherworldly man, who claims to be her guardian, saves her life.
Judy tries to set right the harm she inflicted on a spirit she raised, but new zombies attack—zombies raised from among the long-time dead. Someone else just like her is out there, and he’s not trying to set anything right. To save her own life, and protect the innocent inhabitants of the nearby town who’ve become her friends, Judy has to figure out who’s raising the dead and why. She must also learn to control the darkness inside her—a seductive darkness that promises her power beyond her wildest dreams.
5 of 5 Path Unchosen
Path Unchosen is simply an amazing read that I truly enjoyed. I usually don't read zombie books but this one is so much more than I expected having zombies and necromancers which by the way I love necromancer books!
Judy Hudson is an orphan. She does not know who her family is but she sort of has one at the orphanage. But when Judy turns 18 she is on her own. She knows she is different and she tries hard to suppress her powers but it is hard for her. All she wants is a normal life. One where she does not have to fight zombies or worry about the dead. As Judy finds herself in a bind she finds out she has a guardian who is going to help her out. But can Judy trust him is the issue she is having because she has had to fend for herself all this time she is not so quick to just up and trust anyone.
