Summary

He's investigating her people - so why can't she resist him?

Rory's been an outcast her whole life, never feeling like she fit in with the other necromancers. With the Shifter Council investigating a rogue, her loyalties are torn between the people she doesn't belong to, and the shifter she can't seem to stop thinking about. 

When Alden saves Rory one night, the attraction between them becomes too difficult to ignore, and he finally starts to accept that she could be his mate.

The Necromancer's Prey is the third book in the completed Paranormal Council series. It is Rory and Alden's full story.

Paranormal Romance

The Necromancer’s Prey by Laura Greenwood is a shifter romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Libby Kerk.

I just love Laura’s Books! They always leave me begging for more! I cannot wait for the forth book in the series The Vampire’s Bite to be released on audible.

Libby did a great job on the narration. I cannot wait to listen to more of her projects in the future.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Paranormal Romances.

Short but full

So much going on throughout this short story. The romance was instant but it still grew in strength and comfort which was a great new way to see a romance. I liked seeing other characters from the series. The type of supernaturals they are were unique as well. The narrator did a great job on bringing the characters to life.

Great short Series

I received this audiobook free, as an Audiobook Obsession Reviewer, for an honest review. The third great short story in the series. The author does a great job writing short stories in the paranormal genre. They are complete, full stories. The author has a talent for developing the characters and the story for a continuing series. The narrator does a good job with the characters and their unique personalities.

All smiles

Still so sweet! I like these short stories and how way they are to help me pass the time. I see the author is using an different narrator for each book to give them each their own identity. I usually don’t like that but it works well with these stories.

Cool ideas and narration. Sweet connection.

Cool ideas with unique aspects. This is a fairly short story, so it moved a bit too quickly in the beginning, but I enjoyed the characters and the progression of the story. The world the story takes place in seems interesting and I would've loved to get a bit more about that. I didn't read any of the previous books, so maybe if I had I would've gotten more world building. I think this does work as a standalone though. The necromancer idea was interesting, and I always love shifters. Rory is a necromancer and Alden is a shifter. There's a connection between the two, but both aren't sure how to deal with it. There's a rogue on the loose that brings some danger into both their lives and brings them closer. A sweet romance with some steam. I enjoyed the connection between Rory and Alden. I listened to the audio; the narrator did a good job, she had a pleasant accent. A little too fast at times; the clarity could've been better, but overall, an enjoyable listen. Looking forward to reading more books that take place in this world.

Not as Enthralling

I found my self not as interested in this one. The only thing that kept me listening was hoping that Rory was found to be the Fairy Princess.

The Necromancer & The Owl

This was the best book so far in The Paranormal Council world! Aurora is an outcast necromancer who is labeled “too nice” in her own community, but stereotyped as a bad person to the rest of the world and Alden is an owl shifter from the council sent to investigate a rouge necromancer. One night, he saves her life and their attraction is undeniable. Now she has to decide to stay loyal to her kind and beliefs or to follow her heart. Rory is soft and sweet, but doesn’t give into the pressure of her people and I really enjoyed watching her confidence grow in this story. I felt like Alden was the perfect mate for her because of how gentle and protective he was and since he didn’t make her feel like an outcast and let her be who she was. I loved the mystery and action thrown in this paranormal romance and that it ended with a HEA.
Libby did another great narration! Even though she narrated the last book with different characters, she still made these new characters their own. I love how she can keep you hooked from start to finish!

The Mystery Continues

Title: The Necromancer's Prey
Author: Laura Greenwood
Format: Audio
Narrator: Libby Kerk
Genre: Romance - Paranormal (Shifter - Owl, Necromancer)
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Yes Book 3 of the Paranormal Council
POV: Rory and Alden
Steam Level: Warm
4/5

The Necromancer's Prey, book three in the Paranormal Council series, features Alden and Rory's story. In it you find out who the necromancer is who commited the murders in book 1 The Dryad's Pawprint but not what will happen to them. I like that each book features a different couple while moving the overall mystery forward. If you're looking for the love then each book is great, if you're searching for mystery then you'll need to finish the last two books (most likely). I really like Libby Kerk's narration. It's soft and flows nicely with the story - not over the top. I'd definitely continue with this series as it's sweet and fun with an excellent mystery.

Quick paranormal

This was my favourite of the series so far. It's another quick read. I found the story a little more exciting in this one. If you want a good quick paranormal read, you should check out this series.
I really enjoyed Libby Kerk's narration, she fit the characters and brought them to life.

Sweet story

Rory is a necromancer but she's never been accepted by her own people. She lacks the usual qualities of a necromancer; she has no desire to use her magic to hurt anyone. When she is assigned to help the Shifter Council investigate a rogue necromancer she is teamed up with a shifter. And although she knows she shouldn't Rory just can't stop thinking about Alden. Alden can't get the little necromancer off his mind either. In fact, he's convinced she's his mate.

Sweet story. Nice balance between the investigation and the romance. Alden's gentle, protective qualities made him the perfect mate for Rory. He allowed her to just be herself, never making her feel looked down upon or untrustworthy as a necromancer. In fact, his interest in her magic likely made her stronger. I only wish he had been brave enough to confess about his former relationship and reservations before they started up anything. It made him come across as weak and still hung up on his past. It was nice to see Rory's character grow throughout the story. It's easy to see that these two have a bright future together.

Libby Kerk did a lovely job with the narration. I felt like she captured the characters and mood of each scene perfectly.

Paranormal greatness

This is the third book in the Paranormal Council series and focuses on Rory (Aurora) and Alden, and is just as enjoyable as the first two books in the series. I liked the twist to the Necromancer theme that was put into place, it shows that you can not judge everyone based off of labels.
