Sable Reyes is a witch, but not just any old witch. She has the gruesome ability to speak to the dead by manipulating organs. Living on her own, she must do what she can to survive. Often that involves using her gruesome form of necromancy to get information for whomever can pay her price.
That is, until another crime boss comes along. This one with an ability so powerful and frightening even Sable may have met her match. As the bodies pile up, these dark powerhouses head for a collision course that could lead to their mutual destruction.

I really enjoyed Sable's character and Dee Butchery was the perfect narrator for her character.
Sable has a unique talent, and it has nothing to do with her dominatrix skills. She can bring back the dead, if only for a little while, by playing with their intestines. It doesn’t sound like a job with a pension but the pay is good and sometimes a girl just isn’t given a choice.
When the new boss in town finds out just what she can do her whole life falls apart and she doesn’t know who she can trust. One thing is for sure and it’s that her power is her best chance of survival.
This book is not for the faint-hearted and if you are listening to it via audiobook, then I’d advise headphones.
I have read one of Tim Miller’s books before and I must say, this book wasn’t at all what I expected. Sable is such a strong lead character that I really connected with her. She was an honest character with plenty of wit and warmth to draw me in.
There’s plenty of violence which is Miller’s forte but it doesn’t dominate the book, excuse the pun. The gore is imaginative and amusing; it is also necessary. Miller has that rare talent of being able to portray the inner workings of a sadist, without losing the humour and readability of the story.
I believe there may be a book two in the future and can’t wait to see what Sable is up to.
Witches, death, and sex! Pretty damn twisted book as Tim Miller's books usually are. He is always VERY creative in how he kills off characters. Dee Butchery, in my opinion, is probably his best narrator! She always does a great job and certainly acts the parts very well!
Overall I enjoyed the story and liked Miller's take on his heroines supernatural abilities. She was a badass and wasn't sorry about it. There were some pretty dark scenes which I was expecting so they didn't bother me at all but I definitely wouldn't advise reading this if you have a weak stomach or upset easily. My only small issue is that some of the voices the narrator used to depict the different characters sounded silly to me. It distracted me from a few parts of the story because in my mind the voice didn't fit.
But this was my first foray into this author's work and it has me very excited to check out his other books. In my opinion if you have a taste for the dark and twisted NecroWitch is recommended.
"Witches and Gore!"
I enjoyed listening to this book. I listened to most of it and read some of it. I'm normally not into witches but I knew Tim Miller wouldn't disappoint! If you like witches and gore, you will love this book.

OMWow! Where to begin with this little gem of a story? I Loved this twisted thrill ride.
Tim Miller has a very active imagination for starters. I always enjoy a terrifying Miller story. I haven't come across another author yet to compare Mr. Miller to.
This audio book kept me on the edge of my seat wondering where he would go next, what a horrific thrill ride.
The world is dark and sadistic, full of WTF? moments taking me on a journey of fear, anger, horror, and then some. The characters are unique, original, and so sinisterly twisted I am truly amazed by the authors descriptive writing style.
I found myself listening to some chapters a few times. To hear the narrator's presentation of the character My favorite favorite narrated voice belongsmto Maria! Great narrating Dee Butchery.
I was gifted an audio book by the author in exchange for an honest review. No renumeration was involved.
Dee Butchery is probably one of Miller's most controversial narrators, and arguably on of the best! Her irreverent tone is both hilarious and awesome.
The actual story is intricate and noteworthy. Yes, it is disgusting and degenerate. However, the audio version speaks for itself. The offhand way the narrator spells things out us SOOOOOO good.
Yes, I have, but this is the best, by far!
The Witch! What an amazing talent!
