After the End of the World by Jonathan L. Howard brings the H.P. Lovecraft mythos into the twenty-first century.The Unfolded World is a bitter and unfriendly place for Daniel Carter and Emily Lovecraft. In this world, the Cold War never happened because the Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1941. In this world the Nazi Großdeutschland is the premier superpower, and is not merely tolerated but indulged because, in this world, the Holocaust happened behind the ruins of the Iron Curtain and consumed only Bolsheviks, Communists, and others the West was glad to see gone. In this world, there are monsters, and not all of them are human. But even in the Unfolded World, there are still bills to pay and jobs to do. Carter finds himself working for the German secret security service to uncover the truth behind a major scientific joint project that is going suspiciously well. The trail takes Lovecraft and him to a distant, abandoned island, and a conspiracy that threatens everything. To fight it, Lovecraft must walk a perilously narrow path between forbidden knowledge and soul-destroying insanity.Fortunately, she also has a shotgun.… (lisätietoja)

Loved the first book, and it ended on a cliffhanger, so I couldn't wait to read this one. That said, I found I had to force myself to keep reading because the second book just seemed a slow slug that didn't really hold my interest. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it or fly through it the way I did the first book.

I liked Mr. Weston and the mystery and creepiness surrounding him. But the stuff with the Nazis and the machine, and all the different factions working for or against what they were doing... it just didn't grab me or hold my interest, and while near the end I feel like some of it picked up and got exciting, overall I found myself sort wanting to be done with it. Not sure if I will buy a third book in the series or not. I guess it depends on my mood and the if the plot blurb piques my interest, but after such a great series start, I really found this one disappointing. Maybe it was just my mood right now, since others seemed to really love it, but I really felt like I couldn't give it more than 3 stars. ( )

Wow this series is Refreshing ..

The series follows the Cthulhu mythos and the way the author approached the world is brilliant .

Our main characters are Carter & Lovecraft , both very likeable. Carter is an ex cop turned P.I and Lovecraft runs an old bookshop . You'll enjoy their banter and chemistry. My favorite Character is Henry Westen always with a smile on his face even when the world is ending . And has this child like approach in interacting with the world .
The story is well developed you'll be immersed .
I'm a massive fan of the author . This is the second series I'm reading from him and I'm not disappointed .
Go read this series . ( )

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 wiped out Stalingrad, leaving poor Carter and Lovecraft stranded with memories of both timelines but stuck in the new one. My heart goes out to them!

Really, this book should appeal to anyone who loves Strange Tales, Private Investigators, rampant Lovecraftian universe references, and monster romps in remote locations. This novel has it all, including some rather good explorations of what such a timeline would include, not limiting itself to some of the obvious oddities, but getting subtle on us, too.

It's really delightful and tickles most of my funny bones.

My only complaint is a personal one. A lot of people might enjoy the traditional mystery feel and the buildup by way of sidequests before we get to the bottom of the Zero Energy experiment, but I personally wanted things to move along to the goodies a bit quicker. Not a big complaint, just a preference. :)

Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read this! And just in time for October, too! :) ( )

I really enjoyed this novel a great deal. So much so that I wish the third novel in the series was already available to us all. It’s great fun, and it kept me interested throughout, and until the end. I hope the next novel will come out very soon!
Here is a great review to help explain this novel better than my incoherent ramblings at 4 a.m., as tired as I am:

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2190565371?book_show_action=true&from_...

Ari Fliakos is the narrator, and I enjoyed him a great deal also. He had some great characterizations, including a small character he somehow made sound like the actor who does Kronk, from The Emperor’s New Groove. It was funny, probably unintentional, and made me laugh out loud.
Also the author Howard made this character Lovecraft make this hysterical dig at Dan Brown near the end of the novel that had me snorting loudly. I scared my dog lol.
Anyway, read this novel! After you read the first one, of course.

4 stars, and recommended to anyone and everyone. ( )

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 the weirdness of it-the mysterious Mr. Weston who started everything off by showing up and awarding Dan Carter ownership of a bookshop, run by Emily Lovecraft. (Emily is black and you can almost hear Lovecraft turning over in his grave.) I also enjoyed an area called Waite's Bill, an isolated place on the shore where creepy, mysterious people live. (Not to mention the large amphibian-like creatures emerging from the water!) Unfortunately, other than Dan Carter and Emily, most of the mysterious fun things I liked from the first book were not here.

The world has unfolded, (the major event which ended CARTER & LOVECRAFT), and we're now in a universe where we are great friends with Germany and the Holocaust never happened. A group of Germans working at Miskatonic University are trying to build a machine that will provide unlimited power without draining any natural resources. Mr. Weston makes a brief appearance and Carter gets involved as a security guard at MU.

From there, I feel like the tale crept away from the components that I enjoyed and veered into the area of weird science-fiction, with the entire group of scientists, (as well as Carter and Lovecraft), traveling to the Aleutian Islands to continue their work on the power machine. The pacing slowed way down and I really couldn't have cared less about the machine, the Germans, or anything else for that matter. Events degenerated until the story was more like an action movie than the dark fiction horror story I was expecting. I don't care for action movies.

I still love Dan and Emily and am fascinated by Mr. Weston and the weird creatures, but I'm not sure I'll continue with the series if there is another book. This case is one of those "It's me, not you" situations, I think, because everyone else seemed to love this book. While I admired the world building and the banter between my favorite characters, the meat of the story just didn't appeal to me.

*Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the e-ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. This is it. I'm sorry it's a little late.*
