Excellent well-researched resource with a robust bibliography, and well-construed manner of presentation. From a personal perspective, dealing with skia and eidola, as well as all sorts of variety of the dead (or shadowside) of human and non-human origins on a day to day basis, reading a book on ancient necromancy with my undead yet ethereal companions was a pure pleasure.

I've read it both as an informative academic study, and gathered some hints for practice - prepared my own Melikraton for the day of the dead (All Saints Day), and invited my shadely friends for a bening feast of compassion and soothing. I would add some personal revelations to the book an answer some questions gladly, but as a whole - with a scholarly flair - that was a wonderful read.

I can't wait to get my hands on 'Drakon' by the same author.
