A Change Of Heart

By Kim Cleary

Book Synopsis

She'd rather be a normal eighteen-year-old … but not much chance of that, when she can raise the dead.
 
When an eighteen-year-old discovers she's a necromancer, she does her best to deny this unholy gift. But after leaving the orphanage for a mysterious manor house, she learns that not only have the dead started walking again, her power means she's the only one who can stop it.
 
Judy Hudson wants to be a normal girl, but the nuns who've raised her treat her with fear and suspicion. When a beautiful, otherworldly stranger whisks her from the orphanage to a dignified old estate, he promises to help her wield power beyond imagining. Dare she trust that her abilities aren't evil after all?
 
But when their lessons go awry, Judy learns she can do great harm. To make matters worse, new undead attack--corpses raised from among the long-time dead. Another necromancer is at work, and he must be stopped before he destroys the innocent inhabitants of the nearby town, including the handsome sheriff.
 
To save them all, can one young girl learn to control the darkness inside her--a seductive darkness that promises her power beyond her wildest dreams?
