Macardle90, September 1, 2011 (view all comments by Macardle90)
While I did enjoy the first book in Johannes Cabal's adventures slightly more than this one, it is one of the best sequels I've read in some time. Full of humor, sarcasm and Jonathan Howard's own wild brand of imagination, not to mention a few scenes of surprising tenderness. The ending provides and ideal jumping-off point for the third book due out sometime in 2012, and the Epilogue is pure, ridiculous genius. This is absolute a series worth reading for any fan of the Doctor Who brand of Sci-Fi, steampunk or locked-room mysteries, as this book is a wonderful tribute--and brilliant parody--of each of these genres.
