Tombtown: Dark Magic & Dead Kings
Ree is a denizen of Tombtown, an underground necropolis of misfits and dark wizards with only one rule: do not disturb the dead. Her days are spent dodging zombies and tending the necromancers' archives, but though she keeps the books in order, she feels out of place herself.
When Ree rescues historian Chandrian Smythe from the clutches of the wandering dead, she believes she's found a kindred spirit: a fellow scholar to help her explore and document the sprawling underground city. But Ree must master her ambition and learn to choose between what she loves and what is right, or she and Smythe might both be consumed by the black magic of long-dead kings.
Even necromancers fall in love ...
