    You can also read mine, and MLE's reviews on our blog.Disclaimer: This book is not for the weak hearted, it is very bloody, gory, and has a few scenes that made even me cringe. The main character is a necromancer, though not evil, his sense of humor is quite macabre.With that being said, I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t perfect, and some parts were over the top, but it made me laugh quite a bit.Damian Valdis Vesik is a thirty year old shop keeper, necromancer, and all around smart ass. I have to say, that I really liked the fact that he was a bit older than the norm in Urban Fantasy. The older you get the less you want to read about teenagers, and young twenty somethings. So Vesik spends his days in his shop with the three fairies that live in his Grandfather clock, and two cu sith puppies that love to use him as a squeaky toy. So it starts out with him getting a invitation to his sisters ex-best friend, and sisters ex-boyfriends wedding. Needless to say this doesn’t go over too well with the sister, who now being a vampire feels a bit blood thirsty. This was the part that had me a little squicked out, Damien offers to take care of it for her, and make the wedding memorable. There is a spoiler in my comments; I will let you decide if you want to check it out before reading this book. Now, Damien’s master shows up after he hasn’t heard from her in years with the bestest news of a group of extremely crazy vampires trying to raise a demon. After a few run ins with some possessed vampires, and a few vampire zombies, yes that’s right vampire zombies, Damien gets his ass handed to him, a lot.This was another refreshing part of the book, even though Damien has been a necromancer for years; he still has a ton learning to do. He is not the Billy Badass that snaps his fingers, and everything dies. Oh no, he gets his ass saved a lot by his fairy friends, his master, and once by a ghost panda. It was fun reading a long and trying to see how he was going to live to the end of this book. So even though there were a few gross things in this book, I still really enjoyed it. Damian is very sarcastic, and made me laugh a lot. So if you can deal with a lot of blood, and slightly skewed morals, you might just enjoy this book.

    This is one of those everything but the kitchen sink urban fantasies. Too many supernatural elements and artifacts made it hard to follow. My real pet peeve was the unpolished authorship. Most annoying was the author's compulsion to have someone laughing almost on every page. They laugh saying hello, laugh saying goodbye, laugh at their food, laugh at the gore, laugh in the middle of a fight, laugh at everything - and nothing was really that funny, mildly amusing at best. It was like trying to watch a sitcom with a totally overdone laugh track. The second annoyance was a sad effort to write one character with a Southern accent that consisted simply of substituting the word "Ah" for "I." Irritating. A better editor would have caught this stuff and it would have easily earned another star or maybe even two. This is the risk in self publishing - you have to find ruthless readers before you publish as we all have blind spots. Hope this author gets the professional support he needs to up his game.

    1.5 StarsI'm just going to jump right in.The plot was weaker than a a newborn baby's neck. The story had no forward moving plot points to get the story going. At 30% we finally get moving.The main character, Damian, likes to joke a lot. A lot of said jokes came across forced and fell flat.This read had a definite newbie vibe to it. There were time jumps, scenes where not enough info was given, no-depth characters, and repeated words/phrases.To top it off, Damian, the fledgling necromancer, could barely cast a spell. Consequently, I found this novel lacking on multiple levels and I'll not be continuing the series.It's been days since I read it and all I remember are the fairies.Just because it wasn't my favorite flavor, doesn't mean it won't be yours. Sidenote: Nice blue cover :)You can find me and other reviews at www.HorrorAfterDark.com

    All together I fear this book tries too hard. I ended up skimming the last half of it because by half way through I was tired of the supernatural salad and the consistent grating laughter. On first glimpse this should have been the kind of book I like. Damien is a snarky, slightly older (yay 30) male protagonist and a necromancer, which is something we don't often see as a hero. He runs a shop of oddities and magical stuff in St Charles, which I guess is either a suburb or close to St. Louis, I never really could tell exactly how that worked. His sister is a fairly new vampire (vampires who have no trouble with things like sunlight, grr) and one day his old mentor calls to say that there are demons being loosed and they're coming after Damien because...reasons. When the demons do come it all gets tossed into supernatural salad with fae, demons, vampires, zombies, zombie vampires and psychotic faery dogs. The book is fairly brutal as Damien gets his butt handed to him rather consistently, and enemies get bifurcated and exploded among other things. (view spoiler)[And even innocent pigeons get exploded because he's a jerk and decides to ruin someone's wedding because they had the bad sense to date him at one point.(hide spoiler)]While there are some interesting world building aspects, and a few characters I found myself drawn to, the choppiness of the writing, jumping from place to place and vast inconsistency of pacing and world building was a turn off. A shame because it had a lot of potential for more.

    Favorite Line “He saved you and you … you just … insulted everything he stands for Damian. Everything he works for. Everything his family has done for generations to earn the respect of the Seelie court.”“Kill a child in front of its mother.”Zola’s head snapped back toward me and anger creased her forehead.“Give the child's mother a gun and turn your back. I don't care what religion she is, what color her skin is, what shape her eyes are. You will die before you reach the door and you’ll deserve it. And you know what? She will bloody well be justified!”“A hell I knew I’d never really escape. It was my fault. All my fault.”“Some crazy bastard was laughing. Oh, right, that was me.”“He went to get Vik a ferret.”I've made a decision thanks to this book! I will soooooo start looking for more books where men are the main characters and they are as kick ass as Damian! He's a necromancer. There's so much going on in this book I almost went into overload! It was well worth it though. There a fairies and vampires so e of my favorite paranormal creatures. His sister is vampire. Him and his master Zola are going after demons. This is one of the most action packed books I have ever read. I mean its got a pepper box as a weapon! Whoa loved it! It's not for the anyone who doesn't like bloody fighting! I love it so I loved every page. Bravo to this author!I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (GHB)FOUR NECROMANCER FAIRIES

    I picked up this book, not sure of what to expect.. First: It was written in the first person, which doesn't always work in my mind... After reading a few pages, it wasn't a problem... Second: It wasn't a paranormal romance, which is the genre I usually aim toward reading... Again, just a few pages in, it was no longer a problem! Come to think of it, there wasn't one bad thing about this book! Well, other than the fact that it ended & I didn't want to leave Damian's world yet! Eric Asher is one helluva an upcoming new author & I have a feeling this man will be soon in the ranks of Dean Koontz, Stephen King & James Patterson. The book has it all! Drama, intrigue, horror, fantasy, and some of the best dark humor I've read in years! I can't tell you how many times I laughed aloud while reading this book, even in the middle of intense dramatic scenes, just because Damian is such an incredibly relatable, witty, believable & sarcastic character whom I absolutely loved! Eric Asher knows how to draw a person in with creative writing, and the worlds he invents to share with us are nothing short of astounding! I'll be in line first, for any other books this fantastic author decides to release!We are introduced to Damian, who is a human necromancer that owns an inherited quirky little spell/magic shop and is surrounded by all species of creatures including vampires, demi-gods, fairies, demons, other necromancers and more.. As a matter of fact, his own sister is a vampire.. Damian handles it well, between cu-sith dogs (green blobs of fur, lol!) attacking him & fairies popping in & out, (they live in his grandfather clock:) demanding his attention. His necromancer mentor suddenly reappears back into his life & he realizes that this time, it's not just for fun & games.. If he fails the mission Zola is attempting to complete, it could mean the end of his existence or the end of the entire world, in general! Damian embarks on this mission with his mentor, Zola, his fairy-bff, Foster, (I loveeee Foster!) and gets help from his vamp sis, Sam, along with Foster's mom & wife and a few other unique friends. This book is not for the faint of heart, so there's your warning. It contains gory scenes and a lot of dark humor, but to me, it was about as close to perfect as a book could get!If you are up for a wild, thrilling, crazy ride through the world of necromancers, magic, demons, vamps, fairies & more, don't hesitate and run out to buy this book immediately! It is one of my top pics of the year and I'm proud that I was given the chance to do a review on this fantastic book by this great author!Platinum Reviews Gives Eric & "Days Gone Bad":FIVE PLATINUM RINGS!!~Vicki Rosewww.platinumbookreviews.blogspot.com

    This book needs a good editor. Not for grammatical mistakes, but for content and storyline development. I tried really hard to like this book. Really I did. The storyline seemed promising and I made it all the way through book two and into part of book three before I finally threw in the towel. I couldn't stand the constant "bursting out in laughter" any more. Why were all the characters laughing so much all the time? I could understand if something funny happened... but nothing funny ever did happen. Or, it may have but I was so off-put by the laughing hyenas that made up the main's posse. This seemed like an amateur author's book. He fell into the pit-fall of noob authors by telling his audience his character was funny without ever truly showing it. I love books with a sense of humor. Part of the draw of the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, for me, is his dark, snarky sense of humor. I love it. I often laugh out loud at books I read...sometimes in public even. I get strange looks because of it. This book series did not make me laugh once despite all the supposed humor in it. Instead, it felt like I was the new kid at school trying to keep up with all the inside jokes of the group I happened to have been sitting with at lunch. Aaaakwaaard!

    3-3,5*This has some great things in it, but it also has flaws that really annoyed me...I like the main character, but he is just a bit to flippant about EVERYTHING. While I do like sarcasm and the humor in bad situations, this was just a bit too much happy go lucky to feel real and it seriously ipacted the scenes were you should be worried or excited. I like the necromancy and the fairies, but then it all felt a bit overpowered. While I can forgive Harry Dresden for riding a T-Rex, that is way late in the series when it's already established - and here it felt just so over the top from the very start. Everyone is just much much overpowered.I bought the first three as a bundle, and a really annoying love plot in the second book (and staring at tits and behinds) really didn't help me any to like it more.

    Damian Valdis Vesik is a necromancer. He is also a shop owner, but it's not your everyday shop. He runs Death's Door, a shop selling magical goods. He has friends of various species, from fairies to vampires.Damian's master, Zola, returns after a few years away and brings with her some bad news. Something which she has not encountered before is coming, something evil, something Damian is not yet prepared for. Zola tutors him in further magical ways of trying to deal with what is approaching, but can she prepare him enough?Damian and Zola attempt to recover talismans which were used to trap evil spirits many years ago, before anyone, or anything, else finds them.They uncover secrets along the way, both good and bad.Together they have to face the evil, try to stop it in its tracks, before it accomplishes its goal and destroys both them and the world as they know it.Damian has a wicked sense of humour, and I can almost feel the authors humour coming out in a few places. On the first page he writes -" I pressed a few buttons on my personal chef, a.k.a. microwave"!This is just a typical male thing and it works so well.He also causes an incident at the wedding of his ex which is beyond anything I could ever imagine anyone doing as a prank! All I will say is exploding pigeons! Very very funny!I liked this book a lot. The author uses a lot of description, which felt slightly too much at times. I wanted the action to start straight away. But the build up is worth it as you get through the story.I felt like I wanted to read the prequel though, as there's so much we don't find out. I'd love to read the story of Damian and Zola when they first met, and how she helped him discover and mold his powers.There is a lot of promise in this book and I look forward to finding out more about Damien, Zola, and the rest of the characters the author introduces us to.

    This is a good foundation for a new series. I like the characters, a lot, and the general tone of it, but... there is a lot of work to be done. My two biggest gripes were the sketchy magic and the flow of the plot. The magic wasn't really fleshed out, this is a series about a necromancer, but really he comes across as a normal wizard. o.O The plot just made jumps and didn't connect so well at times.I'll forgive all this though as it is a first in a series and a first book for the author. Hopefully we'll be able to see him grow like Butcher did because Asher does have talent waiting to be tapped.

    Damian Vesic is a necromancer. His sister is a vampire. He owns a shop called Death's Door, and has some fairies that live there in his clock. One of his best customer's is a witch priestess. What more could you ask for? Someone has unleashed something very evil into the world. Damian, his master Zola, and the rest of the gang must find out who did it and what it is. Zombie hordes, demon vampires, and one hilarious wedding prank made this a fun and exciting story. I really liked this book and can't wait to start the next one.

    Days Gone Bad is a darker book than I'd typically read. There is guts and gore, swears, and a whole lot of dark things that happen in this tale. But the author really has some gem moments which kept me interested in the story. The full review can be found at http://katetilton.com/november-2014-k...

    A pleasant surprise. I got the first three books of the Vesik series on Audible and figured it would be a fun story to listen to while I do other things. I definitely had fun listening to the story and excited to see what else will come up in the series. Damian is a necromancer but he isn't portrayed in the usual style. A few not-so-subtle hints for what may be coming up in the series were dropped and I want to see where that promise of "more" will become. Quirky characters, snarky exchanges and a family/friend oriented approach makes for an enjoyable story. I'll be adding William DuFris to my list of favorite narrators. He really made the story great! I look forward to seeing what else will happen to Damian and crew.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl. Days Gone Bad is infused with humor and stellar writing. The characters are amazingly well fleshed out - you feel like you really know them. My favorite character is Damian and not just because he's the main character. He talks to you like you're an old friend, he has a great sense of humor, and he's brave. Plus he's a necromancer - a necromancer who isn't evil. He's become one of my new book boyfriends! I also thought it was really interesting that Damian casts spells to fight against demons and rogue vampires. Damian's vampire sister, Sam, is a close second as one of my favorite characters. She's full of life (haha), spunky, and beautiful. I love that she has this gorgeous, straight black hair. Damian and Sam have a close relationship, and they get along well. Damian seemed to be protective of his sister, and that's one of the many things I appreciated about him. I really liked how the fairies are bad ass - there is nothing sparkly or dainty about them. Foster, his wife, and his mother Cara are tough cookies - you can tell by the way Cara reacts when she thinks the new employee Damian hired has insulted fairies. They will tear you limb from limb if you aren't careful around them! That's how they should be. ;) I liked the gore. That makes me sound demented I suppose, but as someone who's a huge horror fan of both gory horror as well as psychological horror, I like to see the "monsters" get splattered. With all of the supernatural creatures running around wreaking havoc, Days Gone Bad couldn't be told as well without some gore - Damian and his friends are battling for their very lives. There are going to be casualties. Gory scenes are just satisfying, especially when a puppet master rogue vampire is after my Damian! Days Gone Bad is packed with action, humor, and some bloody fun. I highly recommend this for readers who enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series, or even if you were disappointed by the series. Asher breathes new life into the urban fantasy genre, and I'm excited to see where the next installment takes us.

    Okay I have to give Eric credit where it's due. This book is amazing. The opening lines grip you and while you tell yourself "I'm not supposed to be reading this yet" you find yourself unable to stop reading it.I'd be quite interested in a prequel to this even if just a novella to explain how Damian and Sam got to where they are at the start of this book. It's a bitconfusing in that area. I have to admit at the moment, Cara is my favorite character. That's one faery you don't want to cross paths with! And I have no idea what Cu Sith is but I want one!I'd personally love to read about Zola's past adventures as well.The characters are so unique and interesting you can't help but to want to know more about all of them.Eric obviously put in a lot of effort to research the myths and legends of the Sidhe, Seelie and Unseelie for this book and it shows immensely. Everything from Foster's and Cara's abilities down to the use of the Triquetra (Celtic knot) are almost flawless.I also enjoyed the integration of the old gods, with the vampires and Fae. As well as the new breed of "oh dear gods" I came across around Chapter 9 or so.While the story is serious, you won't miss the humorous undertones in Damian's demeanor, or in the comical things that happen in the shop.All in all.. This book is great. I'd love to see a couple of prequels on Damian, Sam, and Zola at some point, and absolutely look forward to seeing more from this creative writer.I give this book 5 of 5

    Necromancer and shop owner Damian Valdis Vesik has an unusual life. His sister is a vampire and he shares his shop with a family of fairies and green wolf-type dogs called cu sith. Given the unique creatures around him, Damian’s life is fairly ordinary until his master, Zola, reappears after a mysterious two-year absence. Zola tells him that someone, or something, is releasing demons into the world through a gateway that Damian inadvertently opened when he was a boy. Zola needs Damian’s help to stop this, but there are complications. Rogue vampires are also after Damian and some of them have deadlier attributes than normal.Days Gone Bad is a fun and entertaining fantasy with likeable characters and plenty of action. This is the work of a skilled writer who shows rather than tells us what’s going while incorporating just enough backstory. The only distracting part of the book is that characters laugh on nearly every page. Normally, I wouldn’t have noticed, but this was so prevalent that it became irritating by the last third of the book. Sure, it’s good that these characters have a sense of humor and poke fun at one another, but this was overdone. If the author searched for the number of times the word ‘laughed’ appeared, I’m betting it would be about a hundred. If you don’t mind that, though, then enjoy!

    My Thoughts:I came across this book as a recommendation in a comment in Ilona Andrews' giveaway for an ARC of Magic Shifts. And mighty glad I did! It was an awesome read!!Chapter 1, I wasn't very convinced. But by Chapter 3, I knew it was gonna be good! And by the end of the book, Eric Asher has gained a new die-hard fan! You got your vampires, fairies, old gods, power-wielding humans and more. Hopefully the author will expand more about the werewolves and witches in subsequent books in the series. Needing a good urban fantasy fix? Pick this book up! I just wished they hired a more ruggedly appealing model for the cover though. Don't have to be handsome, just more appealing. Anyway the suggestion of magical elements in the cover art makes up for it. So not a total loss. I also like William Dufris' narration and his interpretation of the story. He obviously brought his own flavor to the book which made it ultimately more enjoyable! And of course, I already bought the second book and currently reading it :)Empirical Evaluation:Story telling quality = 4Character development = 4.5Story itself = 4.5Writing Style = 4.5Ending = 4.5World building = 4.5Cover art = 4Pace = ( 8 hrs & 50 mins listening time)Plot = 4Narration = 5Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5

    Damien Valdis Vesik. Necromancer. Owner of a new age magic shop. Brother of a vampire. Landlord to fairies who live in his clock. This is the first book in a new series, but the first few chapters are confusing, and read more like the second or third book in a series. I kept getting the feeling that I should have known what was going on, and who the people were. In any case, Damien receives a call from his master, one Zola Adannya, who has been missing for a while. She presents him with a doll that houses a tainted aura and attempt sot train him. Story is, someone is trying to raise a demon, and is making zombie puppets out of vampires. This leads to a treasure hunt for fae artifacts, fights against zombies, malicious destruction of property, and a lot of blood and guts. Surprisingly, there is no romance, except between secondary characters. Beginning in chapter 3, it held my attention, though there were a few parts that forced me to read two or three times. Reading the sequel is a strong possibility, but mainly to see if there are more (better) explanations for some of the events and villains. 2.8 stars. Warnings for blood, gore, violence, death, and language.

    Days Gone Bad had elements that reminded me of some of my favorite UF series. However, the story read as if it were further in the series rather than the first, which normally sets up the world and characters for the reader. At times, I felt as if there was information I'd missed but hadn't. Vesik is an interesting male lead, but I would've expected him to be a bit more skilled and knowledgeable about his abilities. Much of his necromancy tutoring is unknown with only some of the history with his master (mentor/necromancy trainer) Zola explained. Vesik has a diet similar to mine several years ago - junk food, sodas, and a passion for chimichangas. He always seemed to be heating the tasty treats or snacking.I did like the darker feel to the book. The fairies living in Vesik's grandfather clock reminded me a lot of Rachel Morgan's pixies. They accompanied him into battles and were kick-ass. I liked them a bit more than any other character, including Vesik. With that in mind, I'm not entirely sure if I'll continue the series or not.

    I loved the humor in this book though at some moments I felt there was too much of it. Not every situation has to be followed by a smirk or a smile. Nevertheless I'd love to see how this series develops and I'll most likely read book 2 in the nearest future. Also good to note that this was a freebie and I gave it a chance and I'm not regretting to have found a new UF author and series.

    I truly enjoyed this book. It reminds me of Jim Butcher's series "The Dresden Files", which I thoroughly enjoyed. I love the family that is created between the fairies, Damien, his mentor, etc. I also like how the author has brought more dimension and friction between the characters by having Damien's sister turned to a vampire. A lot of action in this book and I love that.

    Interesting story about a "good" necromancer.(I suppose you might consider him evil if you love pigeons.)I liked it, but it isn't Dresden.Damian tries a bit too hard to be a smart-aleck, and just comes across as annoying.Some of the characters seem to have the exact same personality.

    Damian is a Necromancer who has been running a potion shop since his master Zola put him in charge and disappeared a few years ago. He, his vampire sister, his new employee Frank, and the size changing faeries that live in a grandfather clock in his shop are shocked by Zola’s return and the problem that rolls in on her heels. His supernatural community must now face demons who hold no value to human lives. Will their group overcome pure evil? Read for yourself!If you follow my reviews at LARC-SciFI(dot)com/bookreviews and enjoyed the Jonathan Shade novels, Days Gone Bad is a great choice. Its urban fantasy focused on the supernatural, minus the teen romance/ drama that makes up most of the genre. No disrespect intended, I’m a Cassandra Clare fan after all! This story is full of action, magic, the fae, zombie hordes, and junk food. I read an announcement that a fellow member of the critique group Critters was giving away his book on Amazon. Naturally, I pounced, downloaded, sank my claws in, and …. waited a couple years before reading it. Sorry, Eric! But it rose to the top of my TBR and I’m glad for it. I hope there is a sequel. The story does a great job telling how Damian and his crew came together and runs them through an adventure. Now that we’ve gotten to know a great group of characters, I think I’d like to hear back from them sometime.
