Not only a great continuation of the story that delivers just as well as the previous novel in terms of story, the book itself also comes with some very interesting designs that help further describe the setting, including the zephyr they ride on.

This book reveals a lot more of the world Johannes Cabal lives in. Think steampunk Europe.

The adventures of Johannes Cabal continue, and this time there are even more twists and turns than the train tracks that came before.

While the Necromancer provided suspensful buildup and hints regarding the true agenda of the somenly cunning Johannes Cabal, this book provides its readers with the full story.

From the opening setting to the ending line, this story is as unpredictable as it is impossible to put down. I would highly reccomend it to anyone who wants to follow Johannes Cabal on another, even wilder adventure!!

"Staff Pick" by ,

In this fiendish and funny fantasy, detective and necromancer, Johannes Cabal, returns to face another murder and becomes embroiled in more diabolical intrigue than it appears he can handle.

"Review" by , "Silly, erudite, and part a playful modern variant of the locked door murder mystery."
"Review" by , "Definitely entertaining, a cut above many books out there."
"Review" by , "Cabal, the detective and necromancer, is full of charismatic amorality, making him both a classical, and refreshing antihero."
"Review" by , "A swashbuckling mystery set in a steampunk world."
"Synopsis" by , Johannes Cabal returns in this fearfully funny and terrifically twisted tale of murder and international intrigue — five thousand feet off the ground.
"Synopsis" by , Johannes Cabal returns in this fearfully funny and terrifically twisted tale of murder and international intrigue . . . five thousand feet off the ground.


When an attempt to steal a rare book turns sour, Johannes Cabal, a necromancer of some little infamy, finds himself in a foreign prison awaiting execution. A crafty plan — as horrific as it is cunning -- allows him to steal the identity of a government official and make his escape aboard a luxurious aeroship heading out of the country. But what should be a perfect getaway rapidly becomes complicated by the bizarre disappearance of a passenger, an attempt on Cabal's life, and an unwelcome face from the past. Trapped aboard with a killer, can even Cabal's open-razor of a mind save him?


Full of twists, turns, sword fights, archenemies, newfangled flying machines, narrow escapes, and, of course, resurrected dead, Johannes Cabal’s latest eldritch escapade is a Ruritanian romp from first to last.
