  • The Half-Made World

    The world is only half made. What exists has been carved out amidst a war between two rival factions: the Line, paving the world with industry and claiming its residents as slaves; and the Gun, a cult of terror and violence that cripples the population with fear. The only hope at stopping them has seemingly disappeared - the Red Republic that once battled the Gun and the Line, and almost won. Now they're just a myth, a bedtime story parents tell their children, of hope.

    Overall

    As Aaron from smithville said "I want my credit back!" I have to second that.

    The narrator in my opinion is horrible (Especially after having read both of the Johannas Cabal books and then Sandman Slim and even Everything Matters)... This audiobook dragged, in fact, while listening on a 4+ hour ride to ohio I chose to listen to the radio over this due to how... dull... and muddled it became at points.

    Most of the characters to me seem very plane and single dimensional coupled with the fact that the book just doesn't seem to flow, I wanted to cry in frustration.

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Mike Naka says: "jack bauer + spawn = sandman slim"
    "Nice easy listen"
    Overall

    I loved the book. Plain and simple. Slightly cliched at times. The narrator does a wonderful job, and the author has just enough twists and action to keep things interesting. A few painful logical questions (Just why are some barmen so accepting? Does no one report stolen vehicles?) but otherwise you're fine. I already purchased the sequel.

  • Johannes Cabal the Detective

    In this genre-twisting novel, infamous necromancer Johannes Cabal, after beating the Devil and being reunited with his soul, leads us on another raucous journey in a little-known corner of the world. This time he’s on the run from the local government.

    Ryan says: "Not as good as the first Johannes Cabal novel"
    "Eagerly awaiting the sequal"
    Overall

    As Neil Gaimen once said that it comes down to just four words "...and then what happened?" that make you want to keep reading.

    This book will make you wonder "and then what happened" each time you have to take a break from listening. Interestingly, Cabal seems to become much more human and less scientific in this.

    As usual, the narration is suburb. Will most certainly buy the sequel.
