Necromancer Awakening Cover Art





Texas archaeology student Nicolas Murray has an ironic fear of the dead. A latent power connecting him to an ancient order of Necromancers floods his mind with impossible images of battle among hive-mind predators and philosopher fishmen. When a funeral service leaves him shaken and questioning his sanity, the insidious power strands him in a land where the sky kills and earthquakes level cities. A land where the undead serve the living, and Necromancers summon warriors from ancient graves to fight in a war that spans life and afterlife.

If Nicolas masters the Three Laws of Necromancy, he can use them to get home. But as he learns to raise and purify the dead—a process that makes him relive entire lifetimes in the span of a moment—the very power that could bring him home may also prevent his return. For the supreme religious leader, the Archmage Kagan, has outlawed Necromancy, and its practitioners risk torture and execution.

As warring nations hunt Necromancers to extinction, countless dead in limbo await a purification that may never come.

Nicolas’s power could be his way home…

Or it could save a world that wants him dead.

Necromancer Falling

[Book Two of The Mukhtaar Chronicles]

Necromancer Falling





A long-forgotten evil.
An unstoppable enemy.

Nicolas Murray, once a college student from Texas, is now a master necromancer, Archmage of the Three Kingdoms, and the religious leader of millions on Erindor.

When Nicolas returns with his fiancée Kaitlyn and his beagle Toby after a ten-minute trip to Earth, months have passed on Erindor. The Pinnacle—the seat of his political power—is in chaos, and the land is besieged by an enemy who has returned to collect on an old debt.

When Kaitlyn begins to show signs of Awakening—and not even a Mukhtaar Lord can guide her safely into her powers—Nicolas must make a choice; lead the fight against an armada that threatens to destroy the Three Kingdoms, or set out to find a magus who can guide Kaitlyn before her latent power kills her.

As Kaitlyn’s symptoms worsen, and one city after another falls, an ancient evil is uncovered. An evil the Mukhtaar Lords believe was behind every vile event in recent history, from Kagan’s Great Barrier to the Purge that brought necromancy to the brink of extinction.

With the help of old friends and new, Nicolas must confront the enemy the Three Kingdoms has feared for decades.

Even if it means taking the ultimate risk.

Nicolas is a man embattled…
A priest tested…
A Necromancer Falling.

The Road To Dar Rodon

The Road To Dar Rodon, by Nat Russo



Erindor, the visionary fantasy world that ignited imaginations worldwide in Necromancer Awakening, comes to life once more in a story of vengeance and redemption in this latest novelette from Amazon bestselling author Nat Russo.

Mujahid Lord Mukhtaar, leader of the twelve necromantic clans, is one of the most powerful necromancers in Erindor. In the course of a single year, he is banished from his home, forced into hiding, and separated from those who need him most. When a long-awaited trip to one of his covens ends in betrayal and death, Mujahid sets out on a journey of revenge against the last men on Erindor he thought would betray him: the peace-loving Arinian priests of Dar Rodon.

But it’s the holy season, and the pilgrim road to Dar Rodon is both heavily traveled and heavily guarded. When Mujahid comes face to face with a lone Arinian priest, he has a choice: continue his journey across the desert in secrecy and solitude, or take the old man with him to discover the reason for the priesthood’s treachery.

The road to Dar Rodon may lead Mujahid through the desert of Erindor…but it will lead him through the desert of his soul along the way.

See what critics and reviewers are saying:


“A funny thing happened on the way to the massacre”

“Mr. Russo delivers again.”

“Excellent short story.”

“What would you do when those you trusted betrayed you?”
