Water of Souls, A Victoria Cage Necromancer Novel #2 by Eli Constant

Winter is supposed to be beautiful.

Snowball fights. Hot chocolate by a fire. Brightly-packaged presents.

It’s definitely not supposed to be about frozen bodies, serial killers, and boyfriends with secrets.

Victoria and Kyle are in the midst of a still-blossoming relationship, but she hasn’t told him the truth about herself yet. She’s not ready. Of course, he’s hiding something too. And he doesn’t even know it. Love’s complicated.

Then there’s Victoria’s work. Death doesn’t take a holiday, and neither can she. When a father walks into her business wanting a funeral for his missing son, she’s only sure of one thing—the father needs closure, and that’s something she can understand.

Then a body turns up, and things go from ‘odd grieving father’, to ‘murderously strange’ in a heartbeat.

With threats mounting, both in her professional and personal life, Victoria must solve a puzzle of death, dolls, and dark obsession.

If she doesn’t, someone she loves might die.

Water of Souls is the 2nd book in the Victoria Cage, Necromancer series by Eli Constant. I didn’t think it was possible, but Water of Souls is actually even better than the first book, Garden of Lilies.


I can’t get over how much I love Tori. She is such a realistic and relatable character, you can’t help but love her. She is flawed in ways many of us are. It’s nice to see a main female character who isn’t super confident and perfect. She’s an average woman with a couple of little extras. She trips over cracks in the sidewalk just like the rest of us, looking around hoping no one saw us look like a clumsy fool.


As the story goes on and we get deeper into the world of Tori and her Blood Queen status, we are learning more and more about the other people in her life and their dirty little secrets. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.


I do like how Constant has been tackling difficult social topics. There is a character in Water of Souls who isn’t quite who he seems and Constant handles it in a way that is respectful as well as informative. She doesn’t turn this character into a novelty, which I’ve noticed has been lately occurring in many other books.


Overall, Water of Souls is another great book by Eli Constant and a fantastic step further into this world of forbidden Necromancy, Fae, Blood Queens, and Funeral homes. This is definitely one series to keep a sharp eye on!
