Finn Gramaraye was framed for the crime of dark necromancy at the age of 15, and exiled to the Other Realm for twenty five years. But now that he's free, someone--probably the same someone--is trying to get him sent back. Finn has only a few days to discover who is so desperate to keep him out of the mortal world, and find evidence to prove it to the Arcane Enforcers. They are going to be very hard to convince, since he's already been convicted of trying to kill someone with dark magic. But Finn has his family: His brother Mort who is running the family necrotorium business now, his brother Pete who believes he's a werewolf, though he is not, and his sister Samantha who is, unfortunately, allergic to magic. And he's got Zeke, a fellow exile and former enforcer, who doesn't really believe in Finn's innocence but is willing to follow along in hopes of getting his old job back.… (mer)

So, where to begin with this crazy whirlwind of a book? If you're looking at the cover, and hoping that the story inside matches the complete random feeling of the outside, please know that you can breathe easy. This book is so weird. Finn Fancy Necromancy is a family drama, but also it's not. A dramedy? A comera? Ha. Point being, this book takes a long look at a very weird, rather lovable family, without one iota of seriousness thrown in. Are you looking for something utterly random, and yet engrossing at the same time? Congratulations. You've found your book.

In an unprecedented turn of events, I'm going to talk about the writing first. Normally I love to dish all about characters from the get go. This time around, the writing deserves some love. I promise you that "random" is the best word to describe this book. However, it's completely addictive because of how well written it is. Some sort of sorcery is afoot when a debut author swaps from the topics of necromancy and Fae, to describing a character that sounds suspiciously like Mr T., right on to 90's pop culture and a guerrilla sasquatch team, and the reader doesn't even bat an eye. Sure, this book is absolute madness most times. But it's funny, and it's easy to read.

Now, we can get to the characters! Who, despite their rather... erm... unique personalities, grow on you after a while. The fact that Finn is experiencing the current world after essentially being stuck as a 15 year old boy for 25 years, is priceless. His lack of knowledge about technology and jargon just add to the overall insanity of this story line. He's likable, as is the rest of his family after a while. While you might not always love where things are going, I'm betting to guess you won't be able to resist the quirkiness of these characters.

Finn Fancy Necromancy gets three "What in the everloving HELL?" fueled stars from this reader. With its solid writing, hilarious events, and lovable characters, it was a pretty fun ride. I'm just hoping there is more around the bend and, I can't stress this enough, it doesn't take me so long to settle in to. ( )

This is a light read, and was fine. It wasn't laugh out loud funny, to me, but it was amusing. The story was well put together, and the characters were fine. It wasn't enough for me to follow the series, but it was worth an afternoon. ( )

This amusing and fun urban fantasy was exactly what I needed. Henderson creates a relatable in Finn, who as a mere teenager is framed for a dark magic attack on another person. Twenty-five years later, his spirit returns from exile and is dropped back into his body--which has been maintained by a changeling. All Finn wants to do is find his high school girlfriend again and find out what's happened in the world. Instead, he's immediately dropped into a web of dark magic, dead bodies, and gnome mafias. It's a fun read that embraces genre tropes and gives them noogies. It's not a straight-out humor book but it abounds in '80s references and dry wit. Also, I used to live in the Seattle area, so I was delighted to see characters taking the Kingston ferry and even venturing to my old stomping grounds near Everett. ( )

This book took me awhile to read. Had to put it down several times to make it through. Probably because the characters were so different from our daily lives. Henderson has done a good job of bringing together a widely diverse group of characters and abilities, enough to be a trifle difficult to understand. What an imagination to dream up all of this. A good read. Received from Goodreads giveaway.
