Transported to a cursed land, Ilien must seek and destroy the one thing that can never be destroyed. His only hope lies with a horribly deformed child he unknowingly maimed, and a mystical woman whose past is secretly entwined with his. If he succeeds, he may never see his home again. If he fails, he will forever be known as . . . the Necromancer.

Transported to a cursed land, Ilien must seek and destroy the one thing that can never be destroyed.

Excerpt
Bulcrist drew back, his hand before his eyes. The creature pained his vision, as if it leached the very sight from his mind. A stab of fear drew the breath from Bulcrist's body. The Nothingness exuded an unwholesome power he had never experienced before, an overwhelming dismay, a senseless brutality that oozed from it like blood from festering wound. In defense, his fingers traced the Light rune.
There was a brief flash of brilliant, yellow light in which the Nothingness shone like a column of smoke, a brown illusion that sickened the eye. Quickly the light dimmed, cowered to a dingy glow, then died completely.
Do not be afraid, said the Nothing.
Bulcrist stumbled back, clutching at his ears. The words deafened him though he could hear them plainly in his mind.
"What are you?" he asked, his own voice stabbing the silence.
The Nothing advanced upon him.
I am friend and brother. I am aid and ally. Do not be afraid.
Bulcrist retreated, feeling the wall with one hand as he went. The creature was no ally, that much he knew. Whatever it was, it was powerful enough to steal his NiDemon sight and break his Nihilic spell. But what was it doing here? And what did it want of him?
I want what you want, Tannon Bulcrisst.
The Nothing expanded as it hissed his name, as if saying it gave it power over him.
Bulcrist froze, paralyzed, unable to retreat from the growing void before him. His mind filled with panic as an icy finger prodded his thoughts.
Yess.
The word lanced like a sliver of ice through Bulcrist's consciousness.
The boy musst die.
Bulcrist stiffened against the Nothing's touch, fighting to stave off the incorporeal assault. But the power of the Void was overwhelming. Slowly his mind gave way. By degrees the Nothing gained control over him.
Yess!
Bulcrist's body spasmed as the word ripped through the remnants of his mind. He moaned as the Nothing leaped upon him. Blackness enveloped him, condensing into an impenetrable, suffocating shroud. Bulcrist remained rigid, silent, as the blackness seeped into his skin. A moment later he stood alone in the tunnel once more.
"Yess," he whispered.
The Nothing opened its new eyes and surveyed the darkness in silence. Yess indeed, it thought. Now the boy's death was all but assured. There was power in this new body. Power to add to its own. Power to destroy the boy once and for all!
It raised its new hands and marveled at the glowing runes they drew. A geyser of white-hot fire erupted from its fingers and raced to the ceiling. The pressure-heated air exploded, cracking the walls and raining debris to the floor. The torrent of blinding magic smote the stone above in a glut of white sparks, turning it instantly to liquid glass. The molten rock poured from the blasted ceiling and pooled upon the ground. Soon the entire tunnel raged like a blast furnace. Still the Nothing stood, unharmed, impervious to the power it wielded, and leveled its rage upon the earth around him.
"Yess! I will kill the boy! Ilien Woodhill will die!"

Robert E Vardeman - Author of The Cenotaph Road Series
Necromancer gives readers what they've long waited for - a rousing conclusion to the trilogy begun in Nomadin and continued in NiDemon. Put this trilogy on your "must keep" shelf. Enjoy!

Reviewed by: Angelfire.com
The narrative of Necromancer recounts the struggles Rose, Kale and Ilien face in the forbidding land where the cruel Onegod is ruler. Cormier again has captured the quintessence of the genre to generate a dynamic, fast paced work sure to please readers.

Cormierís is a bright voice on the Middle Grades/Young Adult fantasy landscape. Cormierís Main Character Ilien is a kid youngsters can like. Necromancer is filled with all the ingredients Cormier rendered so well in the first two of the trilogy. Again he provides a superior grouping of likable, quick-witted, non-stereotypical characters populating agreeably detailed settings. Kid friendly discourse is used in this captivating account of inexplicable, delightful players set into play by potent impetus.

Moving against a milieu of well designed scenarios meant to bring the reader into the narrative this is Ilienís story. If he is to succeed in his quest to locate his mother, find Windy and hopefully save his world from years of desecration; Ilien MUST learn to control his powers as he faces mounting hazards.

Conflict is always present and is adroitly determined. At every turn Ilien faces near tragedy, hardship and wild upset before he once again discovers that much is nothing as he had first thought. There is an abundance of hooks and interweaving to please the most challenging reader. In spite of the horror of the dead and foreboding land where Ilien has come; humor is never far as writer Cormier fits allegory, wisecracks and out-and-out capriciousness into the tale. Necromancer is an excellent conclusion to Ilienís story begun in Nomadin. The ending found in the closing paragraphs is perfect, leaves the reader satisfied, and the trilogy ends on an upbeat and positive note.
