Is first appearance in print was in the short story Johannes Cabal and the Blustery Day published in the premier issue of HP Lovecraft's Magazine of Horror Where he lives is none of your verdammt business.. 3ish starsThis is a good clever uick genre bender It even has a few laugh out loud moments It s very enjoyable intelligent and endlessly uotable 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 recommendedJohannes 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 fantasy lite horror mystery some great characters and a wonderful carnie style setting There s no denying it s a good book Why 3 stars and not 4 The pace is a little inconsistent It s a little twee which is funny considering the juxtaposition with the dark subject matter but not deep enough to become invested in the story itself The protagonist is unlikeable which is fine as he s the straight man to a large cast of ridiculous characters carnies gentlemen and a smorgasbord of the devil s own creations as well as a vampire who happens to be Johannes s own noble ish brother Horst As Johannes says to his brother We re supposed to be doing the devil s work and you ve gone and contaminated it all with the whiff of virtue I really don t think you ve uite got the hang of being an agent of evil But Johannes is also unsympathetic Is he going to fulfill his deal with the devil Eh I don t care Hopefully not to be honest So overall worth a read but unlikely to end up on any of my favorites lists While this works perfectly well as a standalone I might eventually read the next book but I m not in too big of a hurryJust because here are some of my favorite uotesUpon introducing the House of Medical Monstrosity within the carnival Johannes addresses the crowd s insecurities by assuring them they pale in comparison to the grotesue creatures in the house So say the carnival goers A crowd was growing A young woman nervously held up her hand III have frecklesCabal gestured fiercely over his shoulder with his thumb We have the Dalmatian Boy NextA man called I have a bit of an overbiteThen gaze in delighted wonder upon the Human Shark NextMy nose is a little too pert said an almost stereotypical blond woman on the arm of a wealthy manIt can t be as pert as Simone Sans Nez the Noseless Girl s NextI m ginger called a teenage boySo you are Yes my friends The house of Medical Monstrosity And these police notices about escaped convicts Leslie Coleridge The Part time Children s Entertainer of Death Approach with caution If Coleridge offers to make a sausage dog out of balloons call for immediate assistance Joseph Grant Osbourne The Unnecessarily Rude Poisoner Of limited threat but officers should take nothing he says personallyGideon Gabriel Lucas The Bible Basher Only dangerous to individuals with the surname Bible Frederick Gallagher The Brides in the Inflammable Electrified Acid Bath Murderer Limited threat Kills only for insurance money Is prone to overplanning Oliver Tiller The Rhyming Killer Ex army munitions officer with expertise in booby traps While pursing Tiller officers should beware rakes by lakes toads in roads and hares on stairs Esplanades are to be avoided entirelyAlvin Simpson file missing Assumed dangerous Probably

Johannes Cabal the Necromancer

Rst novel Johannes Cabal EpubHe lives near Bristol with his wife and daughter Johannes Cabal is a necromancer of some little infamy who has been digging up bodies without permission for several years now H. 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 soulsThis is one of those books that I m having a hard time verbalizing my opinion on I ll give it a shot thoughThe Necromancer is a funny tale about a man trying to win back his soul I found the dark British humor right up my alley Johannes Cabal is a delightful asshole and his relationship with his brother Horst was one of my favorite parts of the book I like the idea of a demonic carnival Who knows where carnies go after they leave your town I m surprised Stephen King hasn t written something about that with his recent carnie obsessionThe dialogue is great and as I said before I loved the humor and the brothers Cabal The story itself was a little too linear for me The carnival travels for a year and Johannes collects souls That s pretty much it There weren t really any twists until the last 20% of the book and those were a little telegraphed in my opinionSo I guess this book is firmly in 3 territory I liked the characters uite a bit but I was never compelled to take a day off work to read the book in one sitting and I m not sure I ll read the rest of the series

Woohoo Time to Bring Back the Dead Buddy Read WTtBBtDBR with the MacHalo Necromaniacs The thing you are about to read is as crappy as the book it hopelessly tries to non review is fantastic Consider your little selves warned and stuffThere s a slight chance this book might or might not be the mostest funniest one I have read in the entirety of this entire year Maybe Perhaps Also I m fairly almost certain I haven t come across such a joyously delightful mix of Fantasy dark comedy delicious British humor and Weird Wacky Stuff at any time in the last nine months so there s a good possibility this book might actually be one of my top ten favorite reads of 1956 2018 MayhapThe Necromancer is a heart warming little tale that tells the story of one Johannes Cabal this in case you are even clueless than the average Clueless Barnacle uite a feat that and sort of missed the name of this series an absolutely charming compassionate guy who happens to be a um you know necromancer and stuff At the beginning of the story our chum Johannes finds himself in a bit of a predicament He channeled his inner Faust and sold his soul to the Devil a while back you see and now he wants it back he kinda sorta needs it for his research and stuff So what does Johannes do Why he decides to go and have a little chat with his good old mate Satan of course You are so hot Your Mephistopheleciousness I think I m in lurve So Cabal goes on a little field trip to bureaucracy hell the nether world talks to the Evil Prince of Evilness gets ripped off makes a deal and goes his merry way embarks upon a nefarious mission to bring Hell s head honcho one hundred souls in a year No biggie and stuff I mean how hard can it be to get one hundred puny humans to fill in and sign Voluntary Damnation Form EAGH1 Especially when you ve been lent a Dark Carnival Type Thingie DCTT to help you in your villainous endeavor by His Satanic Luciferiness no less And have the help of both your vampire brother and a most colorful crew of slightly demonicundeadfreaky types Piece of cake methinks What happens next you ask Well The Cabal Brothers Carnival of Wonders takes to the road and spoiler spoiler spoiler ensues So does much hilarity Well hilarity ensues for those euipped with Flawless Sense of the Absurdly Comical and Comically Absurd FSotACaCA anyway A uality our friend Johannes seems to have been born without I m afraid He totally fails to appreciate how inanely ludicrous his current predicament is and is as utterly unflappable as an anemic gastropod at a Barnacles Chitons circus show I mean Cabal s brother himself thinks the guy is as much fun as a leper at an orgy which is saying something But hey it s not all bad He has tons of redeeming ualities and stuff he can be magnificently obtuse has a black withered heart just like me Yay and is sarcastic as shrimp Also he has fished up morals a thing for shooting people in the back and isn t entirely loathe to smashing people s brains out with a crouet mallet swoons Also also his smile makes milk churn and doubles as an offensive weapon Now that s what I call High Security Harem PotentialNow I d love to tell you about the story but spoiler spoiler spoiler as I may or may not have mentioned before so I won t You are uite welcome de nada my pleasure and stuff Anyway what I can indeed tell you is that beware for it s uick maths timeHoward s witty uniue writing style intriguing original plot yummy characterization High uality Snorting HS offensive recalcitrant fortune telling machines Ragtag Slyboots Despoiler of Milk and Entangler of Shoelaces surprisingly resilient babies a chanting army of lunatics Infernal Regions Local Authority Hades Provisional Admission Application form AAAA342 very perlite stuff criminally insane fairies GOST TRANES and TUNELS OF FEER and Rabits of TEROR oh my Sartre s old buddy Arthur Trubshaw ancient expletives involving sexual congress between extinct tribes and extinct species don t ask prison escapees mesmerised if a little unhygienic women littering up the carnival grounds most hilariously amazing kid POV ever friendly vicars and law abiding postmen shudders super extra cool footnotes pathetic schemes that do as much damage as a convent full of possessed nuns priceless police bulletins Rock scissors paper dynamite punch Dennis in the face being belaboured with fourteenth century battle axes I Lie Diplomatically About Your Weight machines let s dance and stuff fellow necromaniacs And the moral of this Johannes Cabal You Are One Slightly Heartless and Somewhat Cold Son of a

    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 mo
