Editorial Reviews


“Jonathan L. Howard has such an effortless way with monsters and the undead that you might suspect him of being, like his creation, Johannes Cabal, a necromancer. The series is addictive.” ―Richard Kadrey, author of the Sandman Slim series

The Brothers Cabal is smart, funny, and dark in all the right places. Imagine Mycroft and Sherlock -- if one were a polite vampire and the other were a surly necromancer -- up against an army of monsters and magicians. Like Pratchett and Fforde, Jonathan L. Howard puts it all together and makes it look effortless.” ―Christopher Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath

“In the vein of the comic horror/fantasies of Tom Holt and Christopher Moore, but substantially weirder. Although it's part of a series, the book can be read as a stand-alone, and fans of the genre should definitely be encouraged to give it a look.” ―Booklist

“Howard is a supremely talented writer and the Johannes Cabal series makes for superb reading. It would be easy at this point to say if you like Rankin or Fforde or Pratchett or Holt, then you will love these books, but while it may well be true it would be doing Howard a disservice.” ―Sci-Fi-London

“Howard makes it look easy to paint a soul-stealing murdering necromancer as a sympathetic character; that, folks, is worth the price of admission.” ―San Diego Union-Tribune

“Cabal, the detective and necromancer, is full of charismatic amorality, making him both a classical and refreshing antihero.” ―Time Out Chicago

“Howard's ear for witty banter and his skill at rendering black comedy bode well for the future.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Johannes Cabal would kill me for saying this, but he's my favorite Zeppelin-hopping detective. The fellow has got all the charm of Bond and the smarts of Holmes--without the pesky morality.” ―Daniel H. Wilson, author of Robopocalypse

“Howard's characters, relentless imagination, twisting plotlines, and use of language make the Johannes Cabal series a real pleasure to read.” ―Richard Kadrey, author of the Sandman Slim novels
