I admit, it took me a while to get into this. As I read, and began to focus and really fall into this book, everything seemed to fall in place. I discovered this is amazing!

The Long Way Down by Craig Schaefer is an urban fantasy set in Las Vegas with a main character of Daniel Faust, a magician with a shady past.

This is a fun book, with a good plot, but with characters that are a tad forgettable. I enjoyed the magical world that was built here, and the description of the house made it sound like somewhere I'd really like to check out.
5/5 from me. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this, and am impressed with this as a debut book. For a debut, it's pretty amazing.
I couldn't get this finished though, I couldn't drag myself through it any longer. So, it's a 1 star from me, and I hate giving out low ratings on ARCs. longer.
Overall, I'm giving this a 4.5/5. I think my issues with it are because I've read about 10 books along the same lines recently. This might've been the best of the lot of them.
How to Save an Undead Life is the first book in the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series. It drops us in to a world where magic, as well as vampires and necromancers, definitely exist. It was a good read, and one I didn’t regret picking up at all. Especially since it was on Kindle Unlimited.
I’m afraid I abandoned this about 30% in. I just couldn’t take anything seriously.
In summary, yes, I would buy this book. Especially if you enjoy urban fantasy stories, with a hint of romance. And who doesn't like a good series to sink their teeth into?
