Friday Finds is hosted by mizb over at Should Be Reading.
My Friday Find for this week is Johannes Cabal: The Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard. This book caught my attention when I was reading the Random House newsletter. It sounds like a funny and unusual read. Here is the B&N description:
In this uproarious and clever debut, it’s time to give the Devil his due. Johannes Cabal, a brilliant scientist and notorious snob, is single-mindedly obsessed in heart and soul with raising the dead. Well, perhaps not soul . . . He hastily sold his years ago in order to learn the laws of necromancy. But now, tormented by a dark secret, he travels to the fiery pits of Hell to retrieve it. Satan, who is incredibly bored these days, proposes a little wager: Johannes has one year to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will be damned forever.
Sounds crazy, right? Barnes and Noble are offering a sneak peek so I am off to read a few chapters. What did you find this week?
