|Necromancer, Johannes Cabal, needs his soul back. Problem is,
he's dealing with the devil, and the devil wont be satisfied without at least a hundred
more souls to take its place. Armed with a carnival, and a conscience that he could do
without, Johannes has to collect the deeds to those hundred souls -- and beat the devil at
his own game.
This book is being widely recommended on the coat-tails of Tim Burton and
Terry Pratchett, and stylistically this is pretty much on the button. The story does
however contain more adult content, and so is more appropriate for the older teen/adult
crossover market. Other that that anyone who enjoys a good story with plenty of off-beat
humour will love this book.
So why not hop on a wagon, and find out where Johannes Cabal's carnival is headed -
just be careful not to sign up.
