More About the Author

Jonathan L. Howard is a game designer and BAFTA nominated scriptwriter of some twenty years experience.

He's been a novelist since 2009, débuting with the darkly humorous "Johannes Cabal the Necromancer." Since then the sequels "Johannes Cabal the Detective" (2010), "Johannes Cabal: The Fear Institute" (2011), and "The Brothers Cabal" (2014) have also seen print. A new Cabal novel is set for publication in late 2016.

The first novel of his Russalka Chronicles trilogy, "Katya's World," a YA science fiction story that takes place on the dangerous and unforgiving ocean-covered world of Russalka, was published in 2012, the first sequel, "Katya's War," following in 2013.

2014 saw the beginning of the "Goon Squad" project, an ongoing story of mismatched superheroes, published in episodes.

His new series of modern horror novels begins with "Carter & Lovecraft," due for publication in October 2015.

Jonathan L. Howard lives with his family in the English West Country.

Format: Hardcover
Quirky characters and most irregular situations abound in this smartly written narrative of the necromancer and his vampiric sibling, who, as a point of fact, refuses to remain dead... or, rather, undead. Somewhere in between, but not quite fantasty, sci-fi or horror, the fourth installment of the Johannes Cabal series was both a masterful utilization of language and dry humor, lightheartedly poking fun at vampire lore - and pretty much every topic it touches upon.

Set in an extremely well fleshed out dreamworld, the landscape for the story becomes a character in its own rights, and without the verbosity of description that often sinks books with such attention to stylistic writing. Cabal (a fear hunter) is an anti-hero of sorts who almost reminds me of some bizarre amalgamation of Anne Rice's vampires and Dorian Grey... but with an even sharper tongue. Along with Horst, his said undead relation, the story unfolds brilliantly and with copious amounts of authorial imagination.

With just the right tone of darkness and wit, it moves quickly and remains engaging despite the not overly complicated plot. These characters sparkle, the story exudes cleverness, and it possibly has become my favorite work of fiction so far this year. I have been passing up on this series for some unbeknownst reason, but find it is one of very, very few books I will both reread and do some catching up on with the previous novels.

Am I the only one annoyed that there is no e-book version? I have all the other Cabal books as well as the short stories on my Kindle, keep waiting for an e-version of this one. What's the hold up? Tried the audio book, but it's terrible--why does Horst have a London accent? Frustrated.

The strongest Cabal book since the first, partly due to the return of Horst and the dysfunctional brotherly dynamic between him and Johannes.
A strong storyline, excellent characters and Howard's black humour at its absolute and unrivaled best, this is a novel that grips you from the first to the last page. Couldn't fault a single word.

A great addition o the Johannes Cabal series of books.
This book is different in that almost half of it is from his brother (the vampires) POV.
Buy the book and you won't be disappointed, can't say more without giving the plot away.
Would recommand.
