Ward Against Death — Melanie Card
Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer, book 1

2011’s Ward Against Death is the first volume in Melanie Card’s Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer.

The meet-cute between Ward De’Ath and Celia Carlyle is an unpromising one. He is a branded criminal (thanks to his interest in the unsavoury surgical arts1); she is the daughter of a lord. Not only that, but when they first meet, Celia is quite dead.

Still, love will find a way. And if love doesn’t, necromancy definitely can.
