I am looking for a book that I read a long time ago. I dont' remember the Title nor the Author so this is whats making it difficult to find it.
In the book It is about a princess who's father and mother is murdered by a necromancer, who happens to be her uncle. She secretly turns to using necromancy to avenge her father and mothers death and gain her station.
The mechanism by which necromancy is achieved is through an alchemical process. The necromancer either takes a drug made by another necromacer or perfects his own formula. Depending on the formula, the drug could give you power over the spirits of the dead forcing them to do your will, or simply let you speak and talk with them.
