Jaimie is faced with two ghosts who can’t quite get the hint and stop being insufferable. But, she finds a way to deal with these ungrateful dead.


Jaimie was a bit of a confusing character when you first met her in Industrial Magic, but throughout the series, I have very quickly fallen in love with her. And, honestly, this short story just made me feel even more connected to the character. And, had me laughing and giggling at her sass and gumption.

There is something to be said about taking revenge on those who have been rude, irritating and are not able to take no for an answer. Luckily, in the real world, it is often possible to just walk away from them, and stop answering their phone calls. But, when you’re a necromancer, and the annoying know-it-all is a ghost that you can’t get rid of…? Well, needless to say, I loved Jaimie’s solution to the ungrateful dead in this short story!
