The Necromancer (2009)
language
English
3.95 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: If Douglas Adams had taken on Edgar Allen Poe it would have resulted in this book. The story is not incredibly substantial in anyway, but the humorous wit with which it was written absolutely makes up for it. The character development is deep enough to actually care what happens...

review 1: I like the concept of Johannes Cabal. He's a funny character, with not a lot of empathy, and he does what he wants when he wants to do it, which is fine. The story of Johannes moves from him standing his ground as a necromancer, but also trying to figure out what is happening o...

review 1: LOVED IT! Will definitely go back and read the previous books in the Johannes Cabal series. Learned a lot from this author. Quite a roller coaster ride at the end. Changes in viewpoints, perceptions, and realities. Left me wondering a bit. Had to re-read a couple things. A...
Katya's World (2012)

English

review 1: I think when I got to somewhere around 1/3 of the book, I thought there were similarities between Katya's World and Pacific Rim but I couldn't quite pin it down to anything. The image of the rolling sea? Monstrous technological remnants? Something like that. But I suppose it was ...
The Brothers Cabal (2014)

English

review 1: Another great addition to the Cabal stories. Horst and Johannes are the least ideal heroes one could imagine but they are exactly what is needed to fight off an organization determined to unleash the forces of darkness into the world. Vampire and necromancer, side by side, along ...
Seelenfänger (2009)
language
English

review 1: Johannes Cabal is morally corrupt, unfalteringly arrogant and more of a devil than the Devil himself - and yet...'The Necromancer' is an incomparably strange, wonderfully told tale driven by a character who is inhumane and yet so human. Where there's wretchedness there's wit, whe...
Nekromant Johannes Cabal (2011)
language
English
3.95 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Absolutely awesome.Very British humour about an anti hero necromancer trying to win a bet against the devil with the help of his vampire brother, several undead crew members, a ball of diabolical influence and a carnival.There is literally nothing in that above sentence that does...
Johannes Cabal the Detective (2010)
language
English
4.01 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This one was tough for me to rate. It does have a stronger plot than the first book, but it lacks some of the outrageously acidic humour of it too. The mood is completely different, as this is a mystery novel and not a dark fantasy one and Cabal remains his delightful self -as al...

review 1: I kept chuckling as I read this book, and my daughter asked me to read her the bits that made me laugh out loud. She's now a Johannes Cabal fan without having read the books. I was worried that the Dreamlands were going to be super annoying with airy-fairy wandering about in mis...

review 1: The casual disdain with which Johannes Cabal treats the world and people around him always manages to bring some joy to my life. This short story was no exception. Of all the short stories for this character that Howard has published, this one is by far my favorite. Cabal, not ye...
The Death of Me (2013)

English

review 1: I love Johannes Cabal, but this story was just not him at his best. Sure, it was very interesting, full of danger and that odd sense of humor which seems to permeate from all the books, but at the same time, it was just a bit lackluster. Perhaps, if it were just a tiny bit long...

review 1: "Cabal rose and walked to the edge of the circle. “And what would you want?”The devil looked off into the middle distance in deep thought, her expression that of a child formulating a letter to Father Christmas. “Well,” she said after some moments of consideration, “I haven’t bee...
