Description
Variously described as Faustian, steampunk, and "a Lemony Snicket for adults" (Fangoria), Jonathan Howard's Johannes Cabal the Necromancer introduced us to a witty, dashing, fiendishly clever antihero who outwits the devil and reclaims his soul. In this ripping sequel, the infamous necromancer has stolen the identity of a minor bureaucrat and taken passage on the zeppelin Princess Hortense. Cabal anticipates a quiet trip until he comes face to face with Leonie Barrow (the only woman ever to match wits with him) and a fellow passenger flings himself from the airship. When Cabal investigates the incident out of curiosity, his efforts result in a vicious attempt on his life—and then the gloves come off.

"Is there life beyond death? Definitely! That is, if Johannes Cabal is on your side.... The mysteries of past and future—science fiction and the occult, Jules Verne and Robert Anton Wilson—are all wrapped up in Jonathan L. Howard's fast-paced escapade of esoteric adventure."—Katherine Neville

"Johannes Cabal would kill me for saying this, but he's my favorite zeppelin-hopping detective. The fellow has got all the charm of Bond and the smarts of Holmes—without the pesky morality. Seriously though, don't tell Cabal I so much as mentioned his name."—Daniel H. Wilson
