This spell does not have a somatic component, so it can be cast while wearing full armor and shield, ignoring arcane spell failure.
When cast by certain creatures in legendary areas (eg Hells & Abyss) specific named immunity to the spell (or immunity to the spell school Necromancy) is required to completely avoid the effect.
The spell Shadow Shield cast as a spell (not from a scroll on an item or as a potion) protects from Necromancy spells.
