If Harry Dresden was vegetarian teenager working in a fast-food joint, he would be Sam LaCroix, the protagonist of Lish McBride's debut novel, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.
I really, really enjoyed this. It was a nice, light, escapist read after a couple of heavy thrillers from book club. Likable protagonist and friends. Creepy villains. Lots of humor and some scary stuff, action scenes, a romance, and waffles.
