I cannot handle the sass in this book.
Scratch that, I need more books in my life that hold this amount of sass.
Johannes Cabal sold his soul years ago in order to master the art of necromancy. However, now he wants it back, and is willing to deal with the Devil in order to get it. Satan, slightly bored and ultimately amused, makes him a wager. One hundred souls must be signed to Hell in one year, or Johannes will lose his forever. With the help of his handsome and well liked brother Horst, they begin their task of collecting these souls through the only tool that Satan gave Johannes; a traveling carnival.
Ultimately, I have to say that this book is the most entertaining, sarcastic, and genuinely interesting book that I have read in a while. By the second page I was already hooked in the dry banter and sharp wit that Cabal produces.
The world that Howard creates, introducing all of the types of creatures of the night that we are used to in such different ways than we are used to seeing them, is just absolutely amazing. I would have LOVED to see more of them.
