Présentation de l'éditeur

Horst Cabal has risen from the dead. Again. Horst, the most affable vampire one is ever likely to meet, is resurrected by an occult conspiracy that wants him as a general in a monstrous army. Their plan: to create a country of horrors, a supernatural homeland. As Horst sees the lengths to which they are prepared to go and the evil they cultivate, he realizes that he cannot fight them alone. What he really needs on his side is a sarcastic, amoral, heavily armed necromancer.

As luck would have it, this exactly describes his brother.

Join the brothers Cabal as they fearlessly lie quietly in bed, fight dreadful monsters from beyond reality, make soup, feel slightly sorry for zombies, banter lightly with secret societies that wish to destroy them, and—in passing—set out to save the world.*

*The author wishes to point out that there are no zebras this time, so don't get your hopes up on that count. There is, however, a werebadger, if that's something that's been missing from your life.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very very entertaining read.. JLH really matures as an author !! 1 octobre 2014

A very entertaining read. A very different book with respect to the earlier Johannes Cabal books since it is actually from the perspective of two characters. Johannes and his brother Horst. They could not be more different in their outlook towards the world. While Horst is a thorough gentleman with moral qualms and even worries about propriety !! The most polite vampire possible. While Johannes is well... Johannes... cold,rational, able to transmute anything as a means to the ultimate end he wants to achieve. It is a very nice chemistry between Horst and Johannes and the tale does entwine both of them together in a very very impressive way. Horst is a hero, willing to lay down his life for good people.. Johannes knows himself extremely well and shows unexpected and extremely profound levels of empathy (heaven forfend !!) in the book.
This book has less humor in it than the previous ones, but then again most of the humor is generated by the point of view of Johannes looking at the world and Horst, well.. he is just not like Johannes. Of course that does not mean it is less enjoyable, but I would have preferred a little more of Howard's special and fantastic humor in the narrative. The plot is also simpler than the Fear Institute but with very sharp twists and turns and Howard's seamless and brilliant writing style that makes both the unpredictable and the predictable facets a joy to read.
I thought that the part with Horst could have been faster paced but that is just me liking Johannes over Horst anyway.
If I had a brother I would love for him to be like Horst (since I am a lot like Johannes). I would recommend everyone to read it. Especially those who are already fans of the series...

Par London Fog - Publié sur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The family that battles montrous abominations together... 7 octobre 2014
Par Liz - Publié sur

The snarky, tongue-in-cheek tone that made the original Johannes Cabal book such a delight to read returns in force with "The Brothers Cabal."

This time the focus is on the exploits of Johannes' debonair vampire brother Horst, who is more concerned with keeping his fashionable trousers free of grass stains than proper undead pursuits. Resurrected by a shadowy organization bent on domination, the polite pacifist Horst is not exactly the "Lord of the Dead" they were hoping for. When the otherwise amiable kidnapping goes awry, the pragmatically-violent Johannes steps in to save the day.

While the original novel in the series is still my favorite, "The Brothers Cabal" holds a charming second-place. Much of the pithy supernatural problem-solving that is the best part of any Johannes Cabal story is replaced with too many action scenes for my taste. However, the amusingly derisive banter between the brothers will be familiar to anyone with experience in sibling rivalry and the cast of characters is the best J L Howard has created yet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Brothers Cabal Ride Again!!! 4 octobre 2014
Par Donna Smith - Publié sur

Why do I love the Johannes Cabal books so much? Is it the wildly imaginative characters and plots? The astoundingly well-developed writing style? The perversely joyous bending of the rules of life, the universe and everything? All of the above... and, at heart, our beloved curmudgeonly necromancer, Johannes. Twice the fun this time with the addition of suave, conscience-burdened vampire brother Horst. Throw in zombies, were-beasts, secret societies (of course), mysterious clouds and creatures, a flying circus and so much more -- and you have a delightful read that leaves you begging for more. If you like fantastic, steampunky-sci-fi -- this is for you!

I love wicked, twisted humor and the Cabal books are full of it. I recommend you read the first book, Johannes Cabal the Necromancer first so that you know exactly where Horst is returning from. What I really loved about the Brother Cabal was the cast of strong, intelligent women. Whether they were the good guys, or evil, all the women in the book had brains.
