Kimberly Treat is one of the best necromancers Akron, Ohio has ever seen. Normally her necromancy sessions go off without a hitch. She raises the dead, takes up to half an hour to get questions answered, and then lets the dead go back to their eternal rest. Except...the last dead person she raised refuses to rest and bites the medical examiner. Two days later the ME becomes ill with fever. Soon, there's a worldwide pandemic and civilization has spiraled out of control. Everyone blames Kimber. Hell, Kimber blames Kimber. And she's still trying to figure out what went wrong. The only thing she knows is that the power she normally taps into in order to raise the dead-something called the Unseen-feels dark. And now it reaches for her instead of allowing her to draw its energy as needed. It doesn't help that sexy vampire Duncan MacDonnough appoints himself her protector. Not that she doesn't need one-anyone who hears her name instantly hates her, and there are plenty of folks out there who are more than willing, even eager, to act on that hatred. But she doesn't need a vampire protecting her, especially since he won't tell her "why" he's protecting her. She has to wonder what his hidden agenda is. Besides, who's going to protect "her" when hunger flares in his eyes? Approx. 50,000-60,000 words.
