There is plenty of affection between lovers and friends, a bit of angst and fights to protect people of Pedace from dark forces with plans of world domination and affectionate spirit with penchant for flirting. I enjoyed this story as much as the other two. Another good one from Lisa Oliver!

    Great end to the series 4 ⭐️ Great end to the series. Dakar really stepped up in this one and finally has his head out of his butt, he stood by Sy at all times and was a great mate. Dakar’s parents disappointed me big time. I was honestly thinking that being shifters they would be more accepting. A lot happens in this instalment. There were twists and turns and some unexpected conflict that was resolved well. I enjoyed how everyone of the characters came into themselves and their individual power.

Brock is still a favourite and Brad is a great match for him. Over the series I’ve enjoyed seeing Sy’s transformation from the quiet shy individual to the confident man he became as he creates his family unit.

    I don't want to give anything away but I will say that I loved this book! Lisa Oliver did another wonderful job bringing all the characters to life. This book was full of surprises and I never knew what was coming next. It was great seeing the story and events progress as well as seeing the evil and idiots put in their place. Well done, Lisa!

    Dakar thought that his parents were much better than Sy's, but they have their own problems accepting consensual reality. Also there are scheming demons in the picture again. The Big Bad Evil tricks many minor characters. It was kind of a combination of he's good at tricking people, and they don't stop to think. Same comments about punctuation, etc., as in the previous books in the series, but I still was able to kind of ignore the errors, at least well enough to keep reading and find out what ha Dakar thought that his parents were much better than Sy's, but they have their own problems accepting consensual reality.

Dakar's parents have the same trouble with his status in relation to Sy that Dakar had a couple of books ago, and Dakar tries to explain how his thinking has changed. That was an irony. I thought the sympathetic characters would be outmatched this time, but they kind of tried to work as a team.

    A good end to the series I didn't particularly like the first book in this trilogy because of all the whining, misunderstanding and drama. I really like this author and have absolutely loved all of her other series so after leaving the first book alone for over a year decided to try book 2 . It was better but it was the third book that made me love this author all over again and truly wrapped up the series in a very satisfying way.

    4.5 It's so good, just like the other books. I like how theire relationship hecome more strength. I like how every characters develop. But, Just like typical "fate mate" story, even if they always said that it's rare to find one, there always suddenly so many fate mate in the the story. And at the end of the book the story almost seems like it been rushed, the ending almost feel like to be forced. But so far I enjoy read it. Hope there gonna be short story for the other couple, coz I like to read it. Sor 4.5 It's so good, just like the other books. I like how theire relationship hecome more strength.

    Glorious This trilogy was so very good, the world the characters lived in and the trials and tribulations they went through was exciting and the love the family created was just lovely. Lisa Oliver can always be counted on to take you away to new and exciting places, to show you what love between mates should be like. Just glorious.

    Great ending This book was a great ending to this series. I loved how Sy continued to come into his own and realize how powerful he was. I liked getting to hear more about Brock. She tied up all the loose ends and gave the boys their time of peace.

    4.5 STARS I’ve read a lot of Lisa Oliver’s work, ever since I discovered my love of shifters and magic. However, I feel pretty confident in proclaiming The Necromancer’s Smile to be my absolute favourite of her series. And of course, this is the one that is set up as a trilogy rather than one of this author’s never ending series! When the author announced this trilogy, I thought – sure, Leese (not that I personally know this author, but she seems really nice so I’m sure I’d call her Leese) sure, 4.5 STARS I’ve read a lot of Lisa Oliver’s work, ever since I discovered my love of shifters and magic.

When the author announced this trilogy, I thought – sure, Leese (not that I personally know this author, but she seems really nice so I’m sure I’d call her Leese) sure, Leese, you’re totally going to stick to just three books, just like all those standalones that end up as series… But it’s done! Trilogy complete, and while I seriously hope that we see at least a novella pop up starring a certain gargoyle and his wolfy mate, Sy and Dakar’s story really did finish nicely here. Actually, it was a perfect ending to their story, so kudos to the author for sticking to her plan, but I’m really going to miss my fave, sassy necromancer. This book lacked the tension between the mates that the previous two books dealt with, in fact I loved the way that Dakar stepped up and got over his ego when it came to his crazy powerful necromancer mate. While there was plenty of fuckery that needed to be faced by our guys, our core characters were finally working as a cohesive kickass unit that was unstoppable in its awesomeness. But as perfect as Sy and Dakar were here, and as much as I love them together, I loved the way that in the end Sy and Brock were there doing their thing just like they did at the beginning of the series. I couldn’t have imagined a better ending to this trilogy, with the author bombarding us with supernatural creatures who end up in a battle of good vs. evil. I definitely recommend The Necromancer’s Smile trilogy anyone who loves stories featuring shifters, magic users and other supernatural creatures. Start with the first book and you’ll quickly be devouring the rest of the series. Reviewed for Love Bytes Reviews http://lovebytesreviews.com/2019/11/1...

    It's been quite a wait for Sy and Dakar to have their HEA. I myself did a re read in order to remember where we left off. It was a smart idea as book 3 picks up right there. Also it's never a hardship when I know how much I enjoyed them the first time around. Lots of drama and even more battles going on in this one. I feel Sy and Dakar were much stronger as a couple in this one and didn't waver as much with everything tbrown at them. They finally started to trust and believe in one another.

It took 3 books but those two ended up quite solid. We see plenty of new and old side characters. It's always fun to check in with our young members of the pack. Connor the familiar,who is a favorite of mine, is promised to be followed up in a short so keep an eye out for that. A certain gargoyle and teenage wolf have already seen people asking for their HEA. I admit I would love to read it. This book wraps up the trilogy. It was a fun three books. As always I look forward to what is next with Lisa Oliver.

    I re-read first two before continuing on this one. I'm not sure if it's because of re-read of books I already re-read but in this round #2 is my favorite.  I liked this book but, and I do apologise to author, ending was a bit rushed over for me (maybe it'll change next time I reread all 3).  I love surprise with Brock .

    Trilogies for the win This is the 3rd book in the trilogy and shouldn't be read without the other two. Already a fan of Lisa's books but loved the longer, deeper, story of one couple that this trilogy affords and the final books allows all these threads to come together. The Shifter and Magical worlds collide with the mating of this couple. The preconceptions and ignorances each of their cultures show deep, sometimes hidden prejudices that try to rationalise away what the fates had deemed absolute.

Set that against a backdrop of princes, shifters, powerful magic users, interfering family members, demons, ghosts, a few murders and a job at the police station and we have a fun three books.

    This has been well worth the wait. The series is well-developed and the final instalment has built on that and the introduction of a few minor characters has added great depth to the book. Sy and Dakar's HEA has been a long time coming given the many challenges and obstacles along the way but with a lot of support, friendships and the desire to right many wrongs and evil doing this has made it an enjoyable series and read. I would definitely recommend all 3 books if having not already done so. As ev This has been well worth the wait.

    Delightful I loved that every major decision in this book was made as a unit. There was some danger of people going off on their own to sacrifice themselves for the love of the others, but I liked that Sy, Dakar, Brock, and Brad worked as a unit. I do have to wonder if Dakar will need to train his ability to tap Sy's abilities now that he knows it's possible. Will Brad discover similar things with his bind to Brock? And since they're all basically immortal, are they stick with their new jobs for e Delightful I loved that every major decision in this book was made as a unit.

    Loved the series especially with the audible in the first two books. Hated seeing the end of this magical and shifter dynamic we know frogs mate was the new gargoyle captain. But would love reading their story, along with Connor and his witch mate. I'm going to miss Sy, Dakar, Brad, and Brock. This trilogy is a magnificent read. When the third book came out I listened to the 1st and 2nd before reading the third. I hope it comes out with an audible book also.

    This is the third and last book of the Necromancer's series. To get the whole picture, better to be read in order. I loved this book. Couldn't put it down. The love and the bond between Sy and Dakar strengthened over time, and they have each others back. There are unexpected twists and turns in this book. And I'm happy, that Brock and Brad have found each other. Great book, great series. Highly recommended. Thank you, Lisa, you did it again.

    This was a nice addition to the series. I found the parents to be tedious and not necessarily believable. I loved learning more about Sy and I loved seeing the full extent of his powers. There is a lot of excitement and not a super lot of romance in this, but it is still sweet and fun. I don't think you can read this as a standalone but if you've started the series you'll want to read this and you'll enjoy it! Recommended! 4 stars

    Great trilogy I really enjoyed this book and how it goes everything up from the rest of the trilogy. You did a great job on the plot and characters development in the books and really could stop and put the book down. If you like mystery , romance and drama you will enjoy this book. Lisa keep up the great work you are an amazing author and I enjoyed all the books you have written.

    Wonderful! Sye and Dakar sure do make a formidable couple! I’m so glad they finally got their HEA. This book ties up the loose ends and we get all the wonderful action that Lisa Oliver is known for. Nothing is ever easy, and she really makes them work for it! Another fantastic story by a world class author! She is ALWAYS a one-click for me!

    This was an enjoyable book. It rounded the series out nicely, although was irked with Dakar's family not being accepting. Seemed to be the same thing different day as the other books. I would have liked to see more of Sy using his powers in his day to day job, but as always I really enjoyed the characters.

    Thank you.... I find this book to be very exciting and interesting to read. Dakar and Sy travelled a long journey, to keep their newly formed pack together and safe. And, I enjoyed taking the journey with them. I want to thank you so much for their story, and hope you'll bring them back in the near future. I would like to read more about Connor and Troy, and their mates.
