When love comes home…

Twelve months ago, Hal’s world crashed and burned, taking the love of his life with it. He’s waited all year for that one special night when the souls of the departed come home, hoping his candle will summon back one in particular to heal his broken heart. But the forbidden knowledge he’s learned could call something far worse, and put more than his own soul at risk…

Hal, a warlock, lost Eve, his girlfriend, twelve months ago, on Halloween. Now he plans to bring her back using Necromancy – a practice forbidden by the Circle. With them keeping a close eye on him, will he be able to carry out his intentions?

This is a very well constructed story and, for it’s length, manages to create a very clear image of Hal and other more minor characters – particularly Hodge, a sprite, who made me chuckle.

Jay’s work is always a delight to read, as her style is very accessible. This shorter work is no different.

And the title – really loving Jay’s titles lately!

For readers who would prefer to steer away from witchy/warlock tales and spell incantations, I’d suggest avoiding this one. But if you don’t mind all that, and a smidge of romance beside, then this is for you.
