Angel Martinez always delivers when it comes to world building. From word one; the reader is drawn into the story and into the lives of amazingly endearing and complex characters. This book, part of the Magic Emporium world, is no exception. Aspic is a part demon, with pink hair. Geoffrey is very strange, but he is also an aspiring necromancer. The demon and the necromancer combination could be dark and one dimensional, but this is Angel Martinez so of course they are SO much more. Aspic has a huge heart and his need to find a place to belong is so relatable. And Geoffrey. Strange and wonderful Geoffrey. His motivations and determination are so admirable, but it is his nervous habit of using the wrong words that makes you fall for him.
There is a level of sweetness to this story that is surprising, with moments of humor sprinkled in as well, which made this book even better for me. Overall this book is a great escape and such a fantastic addition to the Magic Emporium
