After escaping his execution, Cabal ends up on an airship where, after being attacked, he is determined to find the mysterious killer who is offing people left and right. Cabal is such a great character and so remote from any normal reactions that he is almost always unintentionally funny and highly inappropriate whenever he opens his mouth. I enjoyed the previous book a little bit more, mainly because of Horst, but this one has to its advantage that the storyline is much straighter and it's easier to follow. Loving all the over-the-top action and am absolutely picking up the next in the series as soon as possible. ( )

Even though political machinations (especially thoseof the over-zealous right-wing military type) are not my favourite driving force in novels, they are the perfect backdrop for eeryone's favourite necromancer, Johannes Cabal. Cabal may pretend not to care about the world as a whole, but by unwittingly throwing him into the path of Marechal (a military nut-case if I've ever seen one) and his war schemes Cabal takes a personal interest. Sure, he might be driven by revenge rather than civic duty, but this lays the emotional groundwork for lots of future adventures - especially those involving Ms Leonie Barrow, whom Cabal seems to have developed something of a soft spot for.

I miss Horst. if this series becomes a thing where an enjoyably terrible man is REDEEMED by the love of a GOOD WOMAN, I will be so angry. ( )

A slow start gradually turns into a multiple murder mystery on an airship. A bit different from the first novel in the series and I think that's why it took me a while to fully get into this book. ( )

Omg, this is a breath of fresh air. Or at least, it's a perfectly welcome respite from the normal books I've been reading. Either way, I'm delighted. :)

The first Johannes Cabal novel made me constantly wonder who were the good guys and who were the bad, a Faustian tale of beating the devil, carnival antics, and our favorite smart-as-hell necromancer. I remember being hesitant about continuing after I had finished it, but either enough time has passed or I was totally tripping, because after starting THIS novel, I fell totally in love.

This one is a cozy armchair mystery AND necromantic patriotic spy-fiction AND steampunk.

I always WANTED to love steampunk stuff but generally never did, BUT this one is a clear exception to the rule. :) I did genuinely love this airship murder mystery. :) A total Agatha Christie with necromantic elements, a totally fictitious Europe-not-Europe during Empire, and new and fantastic Ultimate Enemies by way of business as usual...

All thanks to Cabal's winning personality.

And all said, I had a grand ole time. Never a single complaint. I do believe I'm going to fly into the rest of these novels very soon. :) ( )

I recommend the book highly. It is silly, erudite, and part a playful modern variant of the locked door murder mystery. Johannes is one of the most interesting fictional characters of our still new century, and, as a necromancer or detective, a pleasing diversion from heat, humidity, and awaiting the Blago verdict.

I work alone. If you insist on having a spy present to report on my actions, he can sit quietly in the corner and stay out of my way. I give you your emperor doing a reasonable impersonation of a living person and you give me my freedom. That is the deal.
