Books like this are why I like book clubs. I never would have picked this up on my own, but it was the January pick for my library sci-fi book club, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We read the Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories for the December meeting (Lovecraft was not a great person or a great writer – so many flowery adjectives! – but I was glad to know the backstory behind the beastie that’s taken over the internet), so this was […]
I had to go back through old reviews to see if I’d done this one before, and it turns out that 1) I seem to have done the rest of the series but not this first novel, and 2) a novel from this series was close to my first ever Cannonballer review (third one I think).

Post Captain (Aubrey & Maturin #2) by Patrick O’Brian I bid adieu (temporarily, dark forces willing) to my favorite necromancer and I continue the swashbuckling seafaring adventures of Captain Jack and his doctor pals. And I continue to bust through two other wonderful but long books.

https://killingmykindle.com/2018/09/15/episode-1-34-its-a-dead-mans-party-who-could-ask-for-more/ Wherein I review: 134. Johannes Cabal the Necromancer (Johannes Cabal #1) by Jonathan L. Howard 135. The Masked City (The Invisible Library #2) by Genevieve Cogman I fall in love with an evil bastard and our Librarian heroine continues swashbuckling through steampunk fantasticness.
