A Different Kind of Deadly by Nicole Martinsen
Summary: I was born to Nethermount, an underground city situated deep beneath the Howling Desert, heir to House Thanos, one of six infamous Houses that have the nerve to call this place home. Recently, my mother gave me an ultimatum, which now leaves me in a rather precarious situation. My name is Marvin. I suffer from acute necrophobia. And I have thirty days to become a necromancer, or else I am very, very undead.
