N for Necromancy – #atozchallenge

Whenever a character in a story mentions ‘the necromancer’, you know things are about to get serious.

What is necromancy? (just in case some of you don’t know)

According to Dictionary.com, it is:

a method of divination through alleged communication with the dead; black art.

Obviously, there’s a lot of potential with writing a necromancer into the story, because it can take a multitude of twists.  The necromancer could truly be communicating with the dead, or he could think he was, and find out later that he’s messing with something that he has absolutely no control over.  He could be a complete sham and just doing things to gain someone’s fear/love/whatever.

Like I said, so much potential!
