He faces he is still underestimating them He is walking into a trap of such arcane complexity that even the one who drew him there has no idea of its true terrors As the snare closes slowly and subtly around them it may be that there will be no survivors at all The Fall of the House of Cabal is the fifth book in Jonathan L Howard's acclaimed Johannes Cabal serie. In Which a Necromancer of Some Little Infamy Settles a Few Loose EndsI don’t really review book series I don’t mean just on goodreads but any website where I’ve reviewed anything If I review any volume in a multi part series it is generally the first and before there is a second volume I do this because if I review one volume part of my mind makes an obligation to review them allI have not reviewed the first 4 books in the series but I will make an exception for Herr Cabal He has most certainly earned it I will not recap the previous 4 books like Howard rather comically does in the beginning I would only ask would be readers why they are starting at book 5 instead of reading the first 4 I will include my brief thoughts on the previous books though as it helps with understanding my own perspective when reading my review Johannes Cabal the Necromancer My discovery of this book was purely accidental I was browsing my local Borders back when they were still around which certainly dates my experience with the series and stumbled upon the book in their horror section A brief look at the back and I had to blind buy it I love it when books and movies can combine horror and comedy and the description made it sound like it had a good shot of getting it right To put it simply it far exceeded my expectations This is of the most enjoyable books I’ve ever read and made me a Howard fan immediately I loved the villain protagonist Cabal and his pragmatic outlook and yet sympathetic goals The take on the classic carnival of discord idea was delightful and the reference's to Dr Diablo and Dark's carnivals brought a smile to my face as a horror fan 55 Johannes Cabal the Detective Alternately titled by me at the time; In Which Johannes Cabal Tries Another Genre To say the seuel was not what I was expecting would be an understatement Not a complaint mind you but I expected of the horrorcomedy of the first novel Instead I got a steam punk detective story with a healthy dose of comedy While initially there may have been some disappointment I got over it uickly as Cabal was as witty and humorous as his first adventure Another solid read 45 The Fear Institute This is where Cabal and I parted ways briefly though not by choice There was a fairly long delay in this one being published in the United States On than one occasion I was tempted to import it but I luckily stumbled upon a copy at a used bookstore To date this is the only one of Howard’s novels I have not bought new My thoughts on this one well it is the low point in the series for me and actually took me two tries to read it It starts off wonderfully with a delightful set up and interesting ideas then when they actually enter the dream lands I found it lost a lot of steam It makes up for it with uite possibly the best ending in the series and made the next book needed asachokengtitiktitikchokeng 35 The Brothers Cabal The fourth book again changed the tone of the story a recurring pattern as you no doubt noticed This time it becomes much of an adventure story with about half of the book focusing on Johannes’ brother Horst I have noticed some reviewers feel the novel suffers from this but I found it rather refreshing to see Cabal’s world from a different point of view and I really do love Horst's view in contrast to Johannes Something about this one re

The Fall of the House of Cabal Johannes Cabal #5Johannes Cabal a necromancer of some little infamy has come into possession of a vital clue that may lead him to his ultimate goal a cure for death The path is vague however and certainly treacherous as it takes him into strange territories that uite literally no one has ever seen before The task is too dangerous to venture upon alone so he must seek assistance. So much is uotable here so much extreme deliciousnessThe Brothers Cabal are back together each having done a bit of personal growth One of the rewarding arcs of the series is how Johannes has thawed just a little mind you in acknowledging brotherly affection even displaying concern for boon companionsHere Cabal paused Yes he had done good By accident as a by product by serendipity But yes he had done good He just didn't see why people kept wanting to rub his nose in itHoward doesn't spend much time rehashing past plots noting that In an ideal world the reader would have the common courtesy to have read all the previous novels in this series and retained sufficient of the plot that a pithy summation would be unnecessary As has been noted by observers perspicacious than the author however it is far from an ideal world and a distinct proportion of those reading these words will have had pressing matters than to avail themselves of the four novels preceding this one To these people the author says 'Yes four You jumped in at Book Five What are you like' Characters were interesting particularly the delightful spider devil Madam Zarenyia Really for the second time this year I'm enjoying spiders her personality sparkled through the pages and her joie de vivre had me laughing out loud Thankfully Howard's footnote sent me searching back to the story in which she first appeared A Long Spoon which was eually entertaining'I do so hate all this shilly shallying May I get all leggy and start killing people now''You may not madam but that time is drawing close'She nodded sagely 'Deferred gratification I've heard about that So this is what it feels like Hmmmm' She considered this new sensation 'It's slightly irritating'Horst perhaps suffers in this book as a foil to Johannes a straight man for the others' cleverness and a stand in for the reader I missed his daring and active personality in this book although he does get his moment to shine in the last section'No Horst's expression was of somebody trying to play a game wherein the other player keeps 'remembering' rules that tip things in his favorI generally love Howard's writing style a take perhaps on the ornate styles of Victorian tales my historical fiction experience is sketchy It's structurally and conceptually complex although with enough sarcasm asides and social commentary to make it amusing even so when it switches from verbosity to bluntnessAs he did so the battle suddenly attenuated its combatants thinning out like magic lantern projections when the curtain is drawn back and daylight re enters the room Now they looked like ghosts and now they looked like suggestive shapes in the evening mist rising from the damp land and now they were gone altogetherCabal cared not a jot His main concern was how on earth he was supposed to entertain himself for a full day in a place as devoid of interest as Perkis Moor After all it was only haunted and the ghosts were boringThe plot centers on Johannes gathering companions and embarking on a journey to five different locations to open the door to eternal life Not for himself mind you The different locations are a way to delightfully revisit settings of the prior books and try out different styles It plays to Howard's strengths as a short story writer The culmination of the uest is altogether satisfying an ending I
