13 Days of Midnight by Leo Hunt - OPTIONAL

Hunt, Leo 13 Days of Midnight, 327 pages.  Candlewick, 2015.  $13.  Mature Content: PG-13 (Devil as negotiator, demon handling); Violence: PG-13 (bloody); Language: PG (6 swears)

Luke’s famous ghost hunting father has died and left Luke his fortune.  In order to claim it he has to accept an undisclosed challenge.  A challenge that unfortunately means that Luke needs to figure out how to control a Host of evil spirits, because Luke is a necromancer just like his father was.  Luckily a girl at his school can also sees the spirits - and definitely knows more about necromancy than Luke.  

I will admit that I am not a fan of modern-set necromancy books.  There is a lot of talk about the devil and evil spirits in this book that doesn’t set well with me on a personal level.  I will admit that the book is fairly compelling and well written, so if you understand what you are getting subject-wise, then it might be worth buying.
