Book Review: Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard

Johannes Cabal the Necromancer (Johannes Cabal, #1)Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was recommended this novel by a friend and all it took was three pages for me to be hooked. So when Johannes Cabal, a necromancer or scientist, goes down to hell like a fly MFer and makes Satan a deal: he can get one hundred souls in exchange for his. But he had to do it before the next Walpurgisnacht, or Satan will kill him.

Oh, and did I mention he had to do it by a traveling carnival?

So with his brother Horst Cabal, the Cabal Brothers are out on the road with their devilish carnival, collecting ninety-nine souls, getting rid of a necromancer named Rufus Maleficarus (what kind of name is that anyway?), Johannes getting stuck in the pocket time universe made me giggle a bit, Ratuth Slabuth nearly destroying the carnival because he was bored, then….then they came to Penlow on Thurse on April 29….

A day where I ship Cabal x Leonie because they met and I got happy….

Till the end…when sweet Leonie signed her life away to save her father. But thank god Cabal burned her and another woman’s forms so they wouldn’t be in Hell when they die. But when Horst burned to death and died because he wanted to save his brother and I was so mad at Johannes…but I got over it when he saved Leonie and Lea (I think that’s her name).

So I really do recommend this book because IT’S SO GOOD AND FUN AND YOU’LL HAVE FUN READING IT!!!

Book Haul-5/15/17

Hey y’all!

105_1214

Last week I went into Ollie’s with my mother (also, to all the mothers out there, happy mother’s day) and I found me four books-three fantasy and one non-fictional one-and I think I made a good choice because two books are books that are part of the series I swore I’d never read, a book from a series I really wanna read, and a nonfiction novel about a lot of hotels owned by a certain hotel family. You know who I’m talking about…so let’s get started on the book haul!

City of Ashes: Book Two of the Mortal Instruments novel by Cassandra Clare

This is the second novel of the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, and to tell you the truth….I wanted to read more of this series. Though she’s currently writing more of the Shadowhunter series and it’s on Freeform right now, I want to read the books before I read Lady Midnight and her new book coming out. Also, I need to pick up Clockwork Princess and my Infernal Devices series would be complete (though I would love the original book cover, I’ll deal with the new ones)

City of Heavenly Fire: Book Six of the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

This book is the last and final book of the Mortal Instruments series, and honestly this is my favorite cover of the Mortal Instruments novels that I like (I loved the old covers of these books, honestly…) and just…just look at the cover. So beautiful and pretty, though the new ones are alright…

Gathering Darkness: Book Three of the Falling Kingdom series by Morgan Rhodes

Oh hello book series I’ve always wanted to read since I keep seeing it on Instagram and everywhere else I can find it. Along with many YA Fantasy novels (Throne of Glass series, A Court of Thorns and Roses series) this book is way on the list of books I wanna read and collect. But look at the cover though-so beautiful. Also, it’s giving me hella inspiration for my rouge character I play in D&D….

The Hiltons: The True Story of an American Dynasty by J. Randy Taraborrelli

So this is a nonfiction novel on the Hilton family-because I’m honestly a sucker for anything that’s about history…and fashion….and dynasties…..because honestly, if Scatter My Ashes in Bergdorf’s was still on Netflix, I would be watching it all the time…but it’s not so I’ll have to buy it and own it myself.

Book Review: Blood of Elves-A Novel of the Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski

Blood of Elves (The Witcher, #3)Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you have played the Witcher games or love dark fantasy, then this book is for you. Though it took me a long time to read it, I enjoyed every last bit of it-I was on the adventure with Geralt and Ciri when they was traveling with Triss and had to protect her when she got sick, then it broke off and I saw Dandelion again and seeing my wifey Yennefer of Venegerberg….*le sigh* but all in all I love this book so much and would read all of these books when I find them.

Book Review: West to Comanche County by Doug Bowman

West To Comanche CountyWest To Comanche County by Doug Bowman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was my first western novel I’ve ever read and I honestly loved it. I’d never thought that I’d enjoy a book like this-I was prepared for the boring stuff, but the action parts and how Kirb got his revenge….

Hoooo-ly crapzola, where do I begin? Well let’s start at the beginning, where Kirb and his wife Ellie left Tennessee to go to Texas. I swear these two are so cute, they became my OTP from the beginning. They traveled for days to Comanche County, meeting new people and eating the weirdest food combinations that I ever heard of before in my life, and when they did reach Comanche County and got settled down…that’s when everything went straight to hell.

It all started in the wintertime, when Kirb and his friend Clay Summers walked in to find Ellie murdered-raped and killed by three men….and Kirb wanted revenge. So he did, after he buried her, and went to hunt down the three men. And all of them died quite painfully.

Stovall died with a bullet in his throat, and Pat Pollard and Lonny Tripp both died with a bullet in the mouth. I enjoyed it and I really do reconmend this book a lot.
