Loved it. Loved everything about it. Dark and clever humor, interesting characters full of their own flaws and morality qualms, and trains. Yay trains! I recommend this book to anyone who counts themselves a fan of Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett.

This hilarious read is one part "Ocean's Eleven," one part Barnum & Bailey, and one part "Angel." Necromancer Johannes Cabal sells his soul to the devil -- but he wants it back. (Certain depraved scientific experiments go wonky when the scientist has no soul.) The devil doubles down. Cabal can have his soul back, but only if he gets 100 others to give up theirs. To accomplish the job, the devil gives Cabal a small wad of Dark Power and a ramshackle carnival train gone to seed.

Hilarity ensues. Will Cabal succeed in tricking the devil at his own game? What exactly happened between Cabal and his stomach-lurchingly hideous brother Horst? What happens when you resurrect a body but leave out all the fat? What kind of experiments is Cabal into, exactly? The plot pulls you along, but the adventures and wisecracks take center stage. A must read.

Borderline sociopath, Johannes Cabal, bashes his way through the English countryside trying to collect souls. A perfect Faustian tale that will lead you through a carnival of hilarity and darkness. Moving, morbid and clever, Johannes Cabal the Necromancer will not disappoint you and leave you breathless.

Come one! Come all! See! Johannes Cabal, the cunningly precise scientist that continually meddles in matters beyond the physical realm. See! His morally contemptible acts. See! The results of a wager he couldn't refuse. You'll laugh, you'll cry (If you've more heart than Cabal), you'll want to follow this character deeper and piece together his story, motivations, and antiquated relationships. What more could one ask from a book? An author with a wit like surgical steel you say? Bingo my friend, step right up and claim your prize.

"Synopsis" by , A charmingly gothic, fiendishly funny Faustian tale about a brilliant scientist who makes a deal with the Devil, twice.

Johannes Cabal sold his soul years ago in order to learn the laws of necromancy. Now he wants it back. Amused and slightly bored, Satan proposes a little wager: Johannes has to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will be damned forever. This time for real. Accepting the bargain, Jonathan is given one calendar year and a traveling carnival to complete his task. With little time to waste, Johannes raises a motley crew from the dead and enlists his brother, Horst, a charismatic vampire to help him run his nefarious road show, resulting in mayhem at every turn.
