Rated 3 out of 5 by from not another episode This book was just as good as his last books, and maybe even a little bit more. I was thinking that it was going to be just a normal run of the mill 'episode' type book, but there were very large revelations in this and it really set up the events for later books. "In this book John Taylor is hired by Lady Luck to find out the origins of the Nightside. This is something that everyone seems interested in, but no one really wants it to happen. John decides to team up with Madman and the Sinner who brings Pretty Poison (his succubus girlfriend) along for the ride. One ongoing thing in the Nightside books is Johns persuit of information on his mother. This is the books where we get the answers to those long sought questions. " Another great book for Simon Green. I'm glad I own all the books thus far as this one end with a bit of a cliffhanger. Now I am able to pick up the next one and dive right in. So I will end saying obviously read it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit more substance in this 'Nightside' story This is the first John Taylor book I read that I actually found some substance to. It's not that the other books in the series were bad - far from it, they were interesting fun fluff books. Mind candy set in a really grim setting. Basically, 'the Nightside' is a place where it's always after midnight, the sun never rises, and everything can be bought or sold (and all wishes come with a warped return on their investment). Basically, in this book, John Taylor goes after something very intruiging: he wants to find out how the Nightside came to be. As a sort of quasi-place existing in tandem beside/below/around London, it has a lot to be explored, and John teams up with some pretty powerful people to figure it out. In the process, he finally uncovers some of the truth behind something very important: who his mother is, and who are the villains sending those horrible Harrowing things after him? The truth is good, plot-twisted (and just plain twisted) and an enjoyable read. Well done.

Editorial Reviews

"The Taylor series has proven to be a welcome break from the endless quasi-medieval intrigues that dominate contemporary fantasy."
