Code of the Necromancer : A LitRPG Series (Book 2)


Cast your spells. Earn EXP. Bring the dead back to life.

Death fears the men who can use magic against it, but what are those guys scared of?

Well, necromancers are only human. Jakub Russo has a big heart but a dark past, and when he's banished from the magical academy for failure in his first assignment, he finds himself needing new allies, new spells, and new weapons.

A world of secrets and spells awaits outside the academy doors, and Jakub knows that one day, he'll master them all. If he can find his own code, he'll become the best necromancer who ever lived.

This is book 2 in the Necromancer series. It can be read as a standalone, but I recommend starting with book 1, Path of the Necromancer.

My Opinion: 275 pages, $2.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited

This one is even lighter on LitRPG than book 1 and leans more towards fantasy. This is especially true for the beginning part of the novel which deals with the fallout from the events of book 1 and setup for the intrigue/thriller aspects of the story. This is completely in line with how the magic system works in the story universe with necromancer XP only being gained when the MC uses his spells or gathers death essence. There’s more RPG progression by the middle of the story but it is pretty light before that. Still, it’s an entertaining story with good action, tension, murderous bad guys that are pretty bad. The story gets a little dark sometimes but there’s lots of good character development and world building.

Score: 7.3 out of 10
