characters Johannes Cabal The Necromancer ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB A charmingly gothic fiendishly funny Faustian tale about a brilliant scientist who makes a deal with the Devil twice Johannes Cabal sold his soul years ago in order to learn the laws of necromancy Now he wants it back Amused and s. A side comment by Richard Kadrey on Twitter led me to this book I love the Sandman Slim series and figured hey Kadrey likes it why not give it a trySo I ve burned through 3 of the books and bought all of the rest and the short stories for my Kindle Johannes is fussy loathsome highly intelligent and ruthless to the point of sociopathy Holmes without a conscience HH Holmes Sherlock combined So why have I spent my money on thisBecause he s delightful in a particularly English way The dialog is sharp the asides casually thrown in descriptions are wonderful and witty You need to pay attention to what is happening so you don t miss anything I ll not spoil anything but I will say that some of the critical reviews are factually accurate but beside the point This is steampunk horror in the same way that Sandman Slim is urban horror or the Laundry Files are bureaucratic horror Horror is the Macguffin steampunk is the milieu The joy is in the story and the characters

characters Johannes Cabal The Necromancer ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ling carnival to complete his task With little time to waste Johannes raises a motley crew from the dead and enlists his brother Horst a charismatic vampire to help him run his nefarious road show resulting in mayhem at every turn. Johannes Cabal the Necromancer is a brilliant dark comedy with a protagonist that is a bit of git but is totally cool with that The eponymous necromancer is not the only great character though the book is packed with them from Arthur Trubshaw hell s gatekeeper to Bones the demon and Johannes brother Horst All the characters feel real and not just plot devices to move the story forwardThe story itself is a straightforward one Johannes has sold his soul and in order to win it back he must win a bet with the devil but it provides great scope to display the brilliant characters the author has created The writing is good and the book is packed with interesting words like insouciance so if you re anything like me you might want to have a dictionary handy It s not a bad thing by the way every day is a school day and all thatJohannes Cabal the Necromancer is wicked and funny in eual measure with some brilliant characters and top class ideas the book is worth reading for Arthur Trubshaw and the entry system for hell alone I m very much looking forward to reading book two

characters Johannes Cabal The Necromancer ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Lightly bored Satan proposes a little wager Johannes has to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will be damned forever This time for real Accepting the bargain Jonathan is given one calendar year and a trave. I have every kindle tale with Cabal as protagonist They are engaging stories with few defects anachronisms and a bit slow pace are the ones that draw my attention Nevertheless the tales are short and the punch line makes them worthy to read and funny This is not the case with this book The small defects are now noticeable due the persistence of them along the story In the tales Cabal has comical or lovable characters that counterweight his dryness he goes to the adventure not for the sake of it but despite it so the secondary protagonists are the ones giving the enthusiasm to the narrated adventure The book also has anachronisms perhaps the author wants to give the idea of a not definite time but the effect is unsettling breaks the coherence of the narrationMy analysis of the book would be the following Satan and the demons are uite infantile that is not wrong but certainly is weird considering that Cabal it is not Lack of coherence I mean they can be joyful and happier of course but they are like kids in a universe where everybody is it notAround the 20% of the book I understood Cabal was bored with the adventure so I don t know why I would invest in its readingAround 48% I am in pain this book is hell and I am begging for the wager to be just to get three souls in one hour instead of one hundred in one year YY The process to get souls is uninteresting the carnival is uninteresting The author introduces characters two robbers a crow Cabal s brother but or they don t participate or they don t want to participate in the story In the uixote Spain is an empty place filled by his genius and lovable madness In this story the places Cabal visit are empty and boring and as Cabal doesn t care about the adventure actually he doesn t interact with them he is so bored that he would prefer to be at home and to be honest me too The resolution is a bit better and it would be a better one if it were the culmination of a short story but alas this was so long I reached 100% for the sheer will to end each book I readThis book would deserve a lower score if it were not for the amazing chapter that paradoxically is a filler chapter that neither adds nor contributes to the story Chapter 7 In which Cabal discovers that hell comes in different flavours and that one should always make time if you consider it as an independent tale it is worth five stars Cabal actually struggles and applies his will he is interested in move the plot I loved it I enjoyed Chapter 9 In which I go to the carnival and see stuff it is a great story without Cabal so there is not his bored attitude to spoil it And that is all I didn t like the book but still there are some few good parts
