Description

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.

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.

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.

It’s Cabal and Horst: what more could you want?

If you know the series, you won’t be surprised by the quality of the writing or the tale. If you don’t, I still recommend it, but think The Detective is a better starting point.

loving it

I love this series and how it's written and performed, I didn't like how Horst was performed with a more cockney accent than expected but otherwise everything was fantastic

Full of action and tales of...<br />

A most excellent addition to the ongoing adventures of Herr Johannes Cabal. It ties well into earlier stories and leaves plenty of room for further explorations of Herr Cabal and associates, and antagonists.

Germans don't have cockney accents, make it stop

The brothers are back together. The beginning, which finds Johannes Cabal making his way home from his last adventure and Horst Cabal relating the tale of his resurrection are just fantastic and quite hilarious. The interaction between the two brothers is the best part of the book. Johannes to his brother, "only you could find the redeeming virtue of vampirism to be the savings in male toiletries."
The dialog and musings of Johannes are simply the best, which are only enhanced when he is with his brother. The word play is delicious and worth the read for that alone. Did I mention Johannes' garden is protected by 'criminally insane and eternally hungry' fairies?
One huge pet peeve is the narration. For some strange reason narrators who either can't or don't do accents fall back on the very tired cockney accent. Johannes Cabal has a German accent at the beginning which slowly dissolves away completely while his brother is given the annoying cockney accent. Why!? Horst is a very slick ladies man ( just going by his interlude with a lacrosse team) and he is given a very lame accent which annoyingly does not fade away but hangs on to the bitter end. Otherwise the narration is fine. Drop that stupid accent.
