Sintesi dell'editore

The fourth novel in the acclaimed cult-favorite series starring necromancer Johannes Cabal

Horst Cabal has risen from the dead - again.

Horst, the most affable vampire one is ever likely to meet, is resurrected by an occult conspiracy that wants him as a general in a monstrous army. Their plan is to create a country of horrors, a supernatural homeland. As Horst sees the lengths to which they are prepared to go and the evil they cultivate, he realizes that he cannot fight them alone. What he really needs on his side is a sarcastic, amoral, heavily armed necromancer.

As luck would have it, this exactly describes his brother.

I can never get enough!

This was wonderful I have to say, it's potentially my favorite in the series with all of the humor I've come to love of the series and all of the semi-horror.
I especially like the way the author ended the story with his notes and epilogues, and it has to be said that the reader (Nicholas Guy Smith) has done an excellent job of bringing the whole varied cast of characters to life.

Fun but annoying, too.

Narrator mostly good, but why Johannes has a German accent (which sounds more Slavic) and Horst sounds like Jason Statham in Snatch makes no sense and is somewhat distracting from the narrative.

Worth 10 stars

Either there needs to be an option for elite authors like Howard to be rated higher than 5 stars or we all should drop our 5 star reviews for other authors to 3. He’s that good.

YESSS!

Book 3, The Fear Institute, was good, but dragged a little. The Brothers Cabal is a true return to form. Hilarious, interesting, no philosophical filler. This time around, Horst Cabal takes center stage and he is hilarious. This is one of the rare books that will have you laughing out loud while listening to your headphones. Jonathan Howard has definitely carved out his own world for his Cabal series, and I can't wait to see what he thinks up next.

An excellent fourth installment.

Jonathan L Howard remains a delight to listen to, a delight somewhat hampered by the reader's tendency to mispronounce words.

hyper-British Victorian macabre adventure.

Another enjoyable hyper-British Victorian macabre adventure.

The fourth Cabal novel heavily features Horst Cabal (brother of Johannes, the Necromancer). Horst is, of course, a vampire who is brought back to unlife by a mysterious Ministry of Darkness in a strange attempt to get him to raise and lead a monstrous army to create a Monster Nation (or state, or local municipality).

Eventually, Horst and Johannes decide NOT to do this, and there is much battling and dry British quipping. As before, the writing is sharp, the characterization paper thin, and the action pieces confused and often out of place. It's still great fun as we get werewolves, werebadgers, evil Red Queens, shades, shape-eaters, and patricidal revenge plots.

High art? No. Guilty fun? Yes.

I don't write reviews, but....

I must say, I have listened to all the Johannes Cabal Necromancer books, but this one really tickled my fancy. I have really taken a liking to Horst, who as a funny and nice vampire is a most refreshing take on someone who did not want to be a vampire in the first place. The back and forth banter between the brothers is extremely amusing. I also have to say that Nicholas Guy Smith should have done the narration of all the books in this series as he really brings the characters to life.

Weird narration choices

I absolutely loved the narrator who performed the first book, with both Horst and Johannes and the Cabal Bros. Carnival. I thought Nicholas Guy Smith did well with the last book, but his narration of Horst and the Americans bothered me in this one. Hard to listen to but enjoyed the story as usual.

More Glorious Necromantic Shenanigans

As always, the inimitable Mr. Howard knocks it out of the park and into a gloriously decrepit bog of zombified delight.

Accents

Why does Horst have a cartoony Cockney accent? He should have practically the same accent as Johannes as they are brothers. It takes me out of nearly every scene the moment he starts talking.

Nicholas Guy Smith must not have listened to Christopher Cazenove's narration of the first book before taking over this series. In The Fear Institute (Smith's first entry as narrator), he gave Johannes a purely English accent. At least in this book, he brought in a hint of the German. But making Horst Cockney is much worse than that was. It sounds like he's doing a bad Michael Caine impression.

Smith does a good job on every other character, but Horst is like nails on a chalkboard.

Overall, the book is good. I don't like it as much as the previous entries, even though many seem to like it better than The Fear Institute. I also almost feel as though this book should be called The Brother Cabal as it focuses so much on Horst instead of Johannes.

Best of the series

In my opinion, I think this book is the best in the series. Full of dry humour that I really enjoyed.
Not really necessary to read the other books in the series in the order they was written as the author gives a short, brief synopsis of events that happened in the other books.

Deliciously wicked good fun

the best by far in the Caball series. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Tha author has a wonderful imagination, with a wicked sense of humour. Funny, witty and engaging, from the richness of the characters to the telling of the story by the excellent narrator. Absolutely marvellous!

Another great story.

The humour in these book just suits me. And the storylines conjure amazing pictures, twists and turns. It's nice to be surprised sometimes.

Ahhh it's knitted

Previous books in this series, whilst being quite decent and accompanied by supportive narration, have seemed to miss....... something. For myself, I believe that this particular book has definitely found that something, and has rolled it up, smoked it, then digested it, to finally deliver to the audience, a much more (you must excuse me as I'm half drunky whilst writing this) rounded and complete piece of work.
It didn't need much, just the inclusion of an additional thought here, or a slight witticism there (very hard to balance). I think Herr Howard hits the bullseye with this one. It has made me happy, which is rather splendid.
