Publisher's Summary

Casting necromancy without ever learning how to isn't supposed to be possible.

A starving orphan girl named Vita is somehow managing it anyway, and she's not sure if this is going to be the solution to her life's problems or a horrifying, spiraling mess of problems she can hardly conceive.

Set in a massive world of floating islands with a dangerous entity known as the Mistwatcher that lurks beneath them, Vigor Mortis pairs adorable charm with haunting fantasy.

Quirky and Amazing

I love the awkwardly adorable personality the main character. Even as she explores her own progressively more monstrous nature she continues to be decidedly human in her needs and desires. The entire theme of the story follows along this vein. "Normal" society is revealed to be abnormal and occasionally monstrous in its own ways, while the author explores the relative humanity of decidedly "less than human" characters.

please

Please please please narrate the next book. I don't know if this type of story was exactly what I was looking for but I was thoroughly entertained the entire way through.

Starts slow but picks up banter

This book starts off a bit slow and threatens angst but when it finally got into dialogue the banter was great.
Overall this book has a similar feel to it as The Godkings Legacy series, but more comedy than action.

The narrator is decent in this but either lacks experience or drive to improve, maybe just has only heard other sub par narrators and not the ones who put their all into a book.

Fun! When's the next one coming?

I took a chance and enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. It was a nice change to have a MC way outside the norm of who "they'd cast" for a story like this ...AND to have her written by authors who understand what the perspective/thoughts of the character would be like. The rules/logic for how the world/magic functions also seems to be well thought out and coherent, though not yet fully explored. It'll be interesting to see where they go with it in the next novel.

The audio sample gives you a sense of the protagonist's character and the narrator's talent but, not a good sense of the story you're getting into. Maybe that's a good thing? I liked Jessica Almasy's narration enough that I even went even went to check out her other stuff. 'Very little overlap in what I'd normally be interested in listening to but, I see one or two I might try.

Awesome, upbeat and horrifying story

This book is very unique and tackles a lot of pretty complex issues in a good way. It is fun, funny, and entertaining, and even criticizes its own dark humor by showing how horrible those things really are.

This is one of those stories where the MC is sort of innocently a monster and deals with the moralityof such a thing by example and by showing the MC's thought processes.

Overall, this book was very well written, reached the rank of "UnPutDownable" for me, and I eagerly await any sequels. The reader does an amazing job with the emotions, tone, and pacing of all of the characters and adds a great deal to the experience.
