    Coming from the excellent 1st book and it's cliffhanger, I was let down by this one. The great part of the 1st book was the mystery and the weird. This one lacked in both aspects. I also didn't feel as this one built it's world enough to be believable and different. I feel as if the wo...

    [I received a copy of this book through Netgalley.] This novel picks up where the previous one left (if you haven?t read it yet, stop here), or roughly, after Emily Lovecraft and Daniel Carter, alogn with Detective Harrelson, have been stranded in the Unfolded world for a few mont...

    I tore through Howard's "Carter and Lovecraft" and immediately pre-ordered "After the End of the World." "Carter and Lovecraft" introduces us to Dan Carter (descendant of Randolph Carter, who is not fictional in this world) and Emily Lovecraft (descendant of H. P. Lovecraft (who is als...

    What happened? The first book was great while the story of this book never caught my interested and if it weren't for Carter & Lovecraft chemistry and banter wouldn't have bothered finishing the book. The idea of the book, an alternative world where the Nazis won is a good one,...

    Please give my Amazon review a helpful vote - https://www.amazon.com/review/R71UBXT... This is the second book in what looks like an extended series featuring Dan Carter and Emily Lovecraft. Dan Carter is a private investigator and a retired New York cop. Lovecraft is the granddau...

    I read somewhere that 'reading notes' (meaning the notes you make while actually reading a book) should exist as a separate type of literary criticism, different from a review because when one writes a review, they interact with their impression of the finished book rather than thought...

    As to the shelves...we would have to call this, "mild horror" but as it's largely based on the work of H.P. Lovecraft lets put it on the horror shelf also. Okay...I'M GOING TO ASSUME YOU HAVE READ BOOK 1 SO THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FOR BOOK 1 IN THIS REVIEW OF BOOKS 2. IF YOU DOUN'T ...

    The continuing adventures of Carter & Lovecraft takes them into the so-called "unfolded world" which is situated in an alternate reality where supposedly all of the H.P. Lovecraft places and things such as Arkham and Miskatonic University are real. It does feel like a bit of a p...

    "I don't want power. I just want things back the way they were, back to the good old days when we didn't have to be polite to Nazis." (157). Thus spake Emily Lovecraft, H. P. Lovecraft's last daughter, an African American woman living in a world where freaking Nazis exist and I feel he...

    Sometimes it seems that this world doesn't have enough Cthulhu adventures. It's a real fault. Fortunately, JLH has a cure in mind. Granted, he may have helped unfold the world we all knew and loved to send us right into an alternate timeline where Nazis got the atomic bomb and w...

    I really enjoyed this book ,but I do have a few caveats that kept me from giving it those last two stars. Emily Lovecraft and Dan Carter .make a great team ,and each of them are a great character in their own right. The Lovecraftian elements are once again handled really well. There ar...

    John L. Howard?s latest novel After the End of the World opens with a bang ? literally. In 1941, the Nazis explode a nuclear bomb over Moscow bringing an abrupt end to the war and changing history or, rather, unfolding it. In the present, Nazi Germany is the biggest superpower i...

    The Necronomicon - "It's the ...apocalypse with page numbers." I'm an unapologetic fan of H.P. Lovecraft and am always happy to sample work that embraces the Cthulhu Mythos, the Elder Gods, and Lovecraft's unique version of cosmicism, (especially the conviction that ordinary reality...

    It's not even been a full year since I read (and enjoyed) Carter & Lovecraft, but I'd managed to forget enough about When We Last Left Our Heroes to slow my entry in this sequel. Still, that slightly disoriented feel at the start is appropriate, given that, along with Carter and Lo...

    If irritating foul-mouthed characters don't both phase you, and you enjoy buddy-cop sci-fi, it's likely you'll find something to enjoy here, sadly I found little. Full disclosure: I haven't read the first book in the series, and I am not a HPL fan, despite realizing a few pages in that...

    At the end of the excellent CARTER & LOVECRAFT there was a major cliffhanger and I felt compelled to request an ARC of the next book. I have to admit I was disappointed with AFTER THE END OF THE WORLD. The things I loved most in the universe that Jonathan Howard has created was ...

    Originally I gave this a generous 3 stars. But after thinking about it for a few days I just can't give it three. Sorry Jonathan L. Howard I do usually love your writing and works, but this one fell flat. This is book 2 to Carter & Lovecraft, and of course features our two leads ...

    Daniel Carter and Emily Lovecraft now live in the Unfolded World. Rather than Providence, they're city is called Arkham. Rather than sleepy unremarkable Clave College, they're local institute of higher learning is actually Miskatonic University, and the local towns of Dunwich and Innsm...

    For a second I was really thrown for a loop when I started this book, because I'd forgotten how the firs book had ended. After checking my sources, I delved back in and was delighted at the Unfolded World that Howard had created. I was also astounded at the amount of times I found myse...

    I haven't read the first book in the Carter & Lovecraft series but this novel stands well on its own, though obviously Big Spoilers for the end of the first one. I love Jonathan Howard's Johannes Cabal books so I knew to expect the sarky humour and snappy dialogue, and was not ...

    While not having an interest in Lovecraft or his particular kind of world building and mythology, I enjoyed the characters in Carter & Lovecraft (as well as JLH's writing in general) and wanted to see how they would develop in this next installment. But I came out of it disappointe...

    ?The time is out of joint,? he said quietly to himself. Is it possible to absolutely enjoy a book while at the same time be completely let down by it? Before finishing After the End of the World I would have said no?but I have to revise that view. Because this second book in t...

    This is the second book in the Carter & Lovecraft Series, and so there are going to be massive, earth-shattering spoilers for the first book in this review. Go ahead and read the first book, then . This review will still be here when you?re ready. _________________________...

    This book is a journey into another dimension where the world has undergone an alternate history and some things have radically changed. For starters, the Nazis got the A-Bomb first, dropped it in Moscow, took over the Eastern half of Europe, withdrew from France and the Low Countries,...
