The Brothers Cabal: A Novel (Johannes Cabal Novels) Reviews
This is the fourth in the series and brings back all the fun that has kept me reading since book one. In fact, I would say this latest installment is the best of all of them. It has both Cabal brothers back in action, an old nemesis from Book II, and the otherworldly weirdness of Book III. In addition, it brings in some new characters, each of them solid and interesting.
Jonathan Howard focuses more on Horst (the vampire brother) in the fourth installment of the series. I thought it was a nice change to have Horst as the main character in this one, and have his personality developed a bit more for us.
The snarky, tongue-in-cheek tone that made the original Johannes Cabal book such a delight to read returns in force with "The Brothers Cabal."
Why do I love the Johannes Cabal books so much? Is it the wildly imaginative characters and plots? The astoundingly well-developed writing style? The perversely joyous bending of the rules of life, the universe and everything? All of the above... and, at heart, our beloved curmudgeonly necromancer, Johannes. Twice the fun this time with the addition of suave, conscience-burdened vampire brother Horst. Throw in zombies, were-beasts, secret societies (of course), mysterious clouds and creatures, a flying circus and so much more -- and you have a delightful read that leaves you begging for more. If you like fantastic, steampunky-sci-fi -- this is for you!
Love ALL the Cabal books, but Necromancer & Brothers are the best (in that order). Lead character is so brilliant, hilarious, wry, and sardonic that you'll love him even if he didn't have the added boon of being an evil wizard. His vampire bro is cool, too, but a bit too svelte & well-adjusted ;)
