Alternate title Something Wicked This Way Comes, the Carnie Version Johannes Cabal is sorely vexed Some time ago, he traded his soul to the Devil, as it was proving an impediment in his studies of necromancy Alas, he acted too hastily after much research, he s realized that his soul is needed for his research to be have meaning He might also have an ulterior motive The epitome of the logistician, the obsessive scientist, Cabal is a hysterical straight man to the absurd humor of those around him [...]
I loved this book.I loved its weird characters.I loved Johannes Cabal even at his worst I should be worried, I know Image sourceI loved the beginning, the plot, the ending I would admit that Johannes Cabal is an acquired taste There are things here that might make some people squirm not in a good way, but there are those too and make them feel uncomfortable at best, horrified at worst The first half of the book is a bit lighter than the second If you thought Something Wicked This Way Comes was t [...]
In a bid to win back his soul, necromancer and scientist Johannes Cabal runs a demonic carnival in order to win the souls of a hundred people to exchange for his own With the help of his vampire brother, can he find one hundred people willing to sell their souls This is one of those books that I m having a hard time verbalizing my opinion on I ll give it a shot, though.The Necromancer is a funny tale about a man trying to win back his soul I found the dark British humor right up my alley Johanne [...]
This book turned out to be a delightfully evil tome that retells the Faustian adventure in a clever, dry and imminently British way Add a bit of Bradbury and the evil carnies, a dash of the detective mystery, and a very liberal dose of the classic beating the devil at his own game and we ve got this tale I am pretty much delighted through and through, to tell the truth It reads like the lightest of Urban Fantasies, it has the darkness of the most evil of tales, it has the glimmer of hope and the [...]
3ish stars.This is a good, clever, quick genre bender It even has a few laugh out loud moments It s very enjoyable, intelligent and endlessly quotable but a little too light weight for my tastes despite its dark nature with a protagonist who is hard to care about The audiobook performance by Christopher Cazenove really elevates the story and is highly recommended Johannes Cabal is a necromancer He s sold his soul to the devil Now he d like it back There s humor in many varieties, as well as fant [...]
The darkest souls are not those which choose to exist within the hell of the abyss, but those which choose to break free from the abyss and move silently among us Although the above quote is from the movie Halloween, it sums up this book almost perfectly Because even though The Necromancer may at first dazzle readers with its sharp wit and cleverness, it has a dark heart, mostly due to its eponymous leading man, Johannes Cabal.Cabal has a problem, you see A while ago, he sold his soul to Satan a [...]
A funny, slightly pretentious, very clever, Faustian story There was no way in hell I wouldn t enjoy this Faust has been one of my favourite books since I read it for my German course in school I loved and still do love it enough that for several years I wanted to get a quote from it tattooed on the outside of my foot and would have done so if not for the three tattoo artists who told me the location is impossible Now I am kinda glad I did not get that tattoo, because WOW that would have been pr [...]
Somewhere between 4 and 5 stars but little closer to 4.Writing style and humor reminds of Terry Pratchett but with lot darker tone Humor here is dark and our protagonist isn t a hero or even anti hero Johannes Cabal is straight up villain and horrible person with flashes of redeemable qualities now and then which made him intriguing and interesting to me.This book follows his funny misadventures in trying to sign 100 souls to devil in order to get his soul back Like Discworld messes around with [...]
I really liked this book The writing is dense, but darkly smart and clever The characters are well drawn, and complex, and I love how the author used the language they spoke to help define them I also loved the difficult relationship between Johannes and Horst The secondary cast was interesting, and added a lot to the story I appreciated their insight into the story, and the characters Having views other than Johannes helped me to understand Johannes, and how he is perceived The plot was nicely [...]
I tried Oh how I tried The premise for this book had me at hello The audiobook starts out very charming and engaging with a winsome scene of Hell s bureaucracy The dialogue is crisp, witty and very British Narrator Christopher Cazenove reminded me of Alan Rickman, which is made of win for me Then there s the confrontation with Lucifer that s just as delightful and intriguing Johannes Cabal is a Necromancer who traded his soul to the Devil But now he needs it back However, known neither for his m [...]
This book was just what I needed after coming out of my Mockingjay funk Mockingjay was brilliant, don t get me wrong, but it also sucked my will to live in 7 loaded hours I was in a daze for, like, two days I think I could only move on to other books because my mom started reading it after I finished, preventing me from a re read, and I got to meet up with my best friend to discuss and have group therapy over our very similar, life ending experiences So yes, dry British humor was what I needed t [...]
Quintessentially British humor infused urban fantasy with an anti hero protagonist.Johannes Cabal has done a deal with the devil for his soul But that was a while ago, and now he needs his soul back Not because he wants to avoid damnation, but because being soulless is causing issues with his experiments in necromancy So with this second deal he has to sign up 100 other peoples souls for Satan to get his own soul back To do this the Devil loans him one of his carnivals and sends him on his way.T [...]
Dreadful I knew I was going to throw in the towel after about 30 pages, but I kept going until page 65 because I wanted to give it a reasonable chance I was in the mood for some gothic wit, some charming amorality, and some evocative darkness Fail, on all accounts It wasn t witty The plot was contrived The writing was forced and awkward And the main character was neither charming nor witty In fact, he was stiff and boring Here is the dead on insight I had about this book Sometimes while I m read [...]
4 StarsThe Necromancer book one of the Johannes Cabal series by Jonathan L Howard is a dark urban fantasy done right Johannes Cabal is not a good man heck, he is not even a nice man He literally sold his soul to the devil and has now decided that he wants it back.The book moves along briskly with plenty of action, dialogue, and great settings This story really does travel to Hell and back I really enjoyed the writing style of Howard He is big on painting a dark and dirty picture and he is big on [...]
I finished, but it didn t keep my attention very well after about the halfway point Not bad writing, but I think this character seems to work better in short stories of which there are several.
When I first heard about this book some years ago, I didn t give it much thought When I heard this book compared to Ray Bradbury s Something Wicked This Way Comes, I immediately took notice Bradbury s Something Wicked This Way Comes was one of my favourite books growing up Anyway, on to Johannes Cabal Not a nice guy but oh, so witty and dryly humourous The story s premise is Johannes enters into a bargain with the Devil to get 100 souls in exchange for the return of Johannes soul Enter the carni [...]
This is a curiously weightless book It seems detached from place, from time, and suffers from that detachment If I spend time wondering what time period it s taking place in that being engrossed in the story, then there s a problem Technologies are variable, references are all over the place, and the writing is uneven But there s a hint here of something better.Note The rest of this review has been withheld due to the recent changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this deci [...]
Reread 8 4 17 Still find this darkly charming.Take one necromancer His name was Johannes Cabal, and he was summoning a demon and one vampire His perceptive eye and sympathetic heart, however, were all his own d one year aboard a literal train from hell, a traveling Carnival of DiscordWonders The Cabal Bros Carnival was something special Something unusual Something different complete the mission one hundred souls in one year s time to undo a Faustian deal with the Devil.This book certainly won t [...]
4.0 to 4.5 stars An excellent debut novel with a wonderful tone and smart writing Excellent plot and wonderful characters especially the main character and his brother Overall, a very satisfying read Highly recommended
3.5So, I liked this book well enough, but I had high hopes for it and just wanted to like it than I did.Part of it is that I think, before I started reading it, I was expecting it to have of a period feel to it which it sort of achieves, in that it didn t feel quite modern, but didn t quite manage to immerse me fully.But, that aside, when I first started reading it I was generally enjoying it I really like the little bits of wry wit and references, but as the story progressed it took on a ser [...]
4.5 stars, rounded up.This book was just a ton of fun, and I think the audio book probably enhanced it for me as it really brought out the various characters I loved the dry humor, the weirdness of the characters, the interactions between Cabal and his brother, Horst, and even the unexpected tender moments Sign me up for the next book.
The sort of book Tim Burton would write, if he wanted to write a book about a necromancer who s bet his soul on a wager with the devil and then travels the country side with a hellish fair So, really, Burton should adapt this book.
The Johannes Cabal series from the creator of that awesome 90 s point click game Broken Sword is an interesting if not very unique idea The tone is very much one of deliberate attempts at humour that made me cringe often than not.I was reading stuff like this ten years ago and enjoying it so perhaps this is just another example of needing the right place right time dynamic in my life to really enjoy something sadly instead of finding it funny and clever this just made me compare Howard unfavour [...]
Johannes Cabal is a wicked dark comedy Johannes sold his soul to learn the laws of necromancy and makes a wager with Satan so that he may win it back one year to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls A travelling circus is an aid to his task Horst, a charismatic vampire and brother of Johannes joins as the carnival s barker on the diabolical romp through the English countryside.
Ingenious and hilarious One of my favorite novels.
Johanes Kabal, lik koji je hladnokrvan, surov, bez empatije, usko fokusiran na jedan cilj i neinteresuje ga koga mora da iskoristi da bi dosao do njega Pa cak i Djavola I sve zato je dusu prodao doticnom E to je nas glavni lik, sigurno ne neko za koga bi smo navijali i ipak do kraja knjige zelimo da uspe ali i da se promeni Popravi Postane bolji.Vrlo interesantna pricica, sa dosta naivnih delova pocetak i kraj ali i puna upecatljivih likova od kojih je retko ko dobar Sam svet je cudna kombinacij [...]
Johannes Cabal is a necromancer who lives in the 1800 s Or maybe it s the 1900 s Or maybe it s 2011 Or maybe it s the 1950 s cough Johannes Cabal is a necromancer who lives in some sort of time period that s a mish mash of everything ever for the past 300 years He s arrogant, intelligent and ruthless and he has a plan He s decided that he needs his soul back, which is easier said than done when the only way to do that is to visit hell Making a pact with the devil should have been a lot fairer th [...]
Jonathan L Howard s writing is rich, wry, and creepy as fuck Admittedly, I had trouble getting into this book I don t really understand why, honestly Purgatory as a bureaucratic nightmare A vampiric crypt dwelling brother A carnival of death, chaos, and latex ladies Totally my style So, the story inevitably grabbed me, especially as Cabal started collecting souls to exchange with Satan for his own lost soul, and Howard s imagination was given the chance to shine An abusive boyfriend is forcibly [...]
Overall, I enjoyed it it s what I would term a light read even though the material itself is quite dark It is necromancy after all I think the first half is stronger than the second I probably liked the first half because it was wittier acid, imo By the halfway mark, it felt like the story got a little predictable often my problem with books that are part of a series I feel like there were some chapters there just to fill the quota move the story to its end, if that makes sense I liked the en [...]
Was originally a buddy read with a friend of mine but extended hiatus later, I m sick of seeing this in my Currently Reading list.Pretty meh Occasionally gave me a chuckle but for the most part the witticisms and humour were painful, a few neat ideas, the two main characters are fun and the whole Hell being a huge, idiotic beureaocracy has something nicely Douglas Adamsy about it, but yeah overall fairly forgettable.
