Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
In Hex and the City, the fourth installment in Simon R. Green's Nightside saga (Something from the Nightside, Agents of Light and Darkness, and Nightingale's Lament), private investigator John Taylor uncovers the dark origins of the Nightside -- and gets in touch with his supernatural side.

The Nightside -- the subterranean realm underneath London "where gods and monsters walk side by side" and where it's always three o'clock in the morning -- is the perfect place for Taylor, a private eye with the preternatural ability to track down anyone and anything. After a wealthy client hires him to uncover how and why the Nightside was created, Taylor begins a perilous quest that not only almost gets him killed several times over but also leads him to some jaw-dropping revelations about his own mysterious origins.

Accompanied by a madman, a soulless sinner, and a demon, Taylor looks for answers in the darkest corners of the Nightside. After talking with some of the weirdest and most dangerous characters that the realm has to offer -- Herne the Hunter, the antlered god of the forests; the Lamentation, also known as the Saint of Suffering; and the Lord of Thorns, the mythical overseer of the Nightside -- Taylor finally unlocks the mysteries of the Nightside when he meets his long-absent mother!

Like H. R. Giger meets Monty Python's Flying Circus, Green's Nightside saga is as ghastly as it is outrageous. An audacious amalgam of mystery, fantasy, and horror, John Taylor's adventures in the Nightside are action-packed, breakneck paced -- and thoroughly entertaining. Paul Goat Allen

    Another Excellent Simon R Green and Nightside book

    Simon R Green is a master of the growing dark fantasy genre, and his Nightside series is one of the standards. His characters are interesting conflicted and vivid, similar to those from graphic novels, but with all the texture of a true text novel. His alternate reality holds up well to normal suspension of disbelief. I think the blurb tells enough of the plot to avoid a spoiler, which I do not want to give here, but I will say that his twists and turns entertain, and his ending is satisfying, though he of course leaves room for additional books, just not at the cost of a resolution of this plot. I strongly recommend this book, the entire Nightside series, and his other books as well. Ignore the silly title, the book is excellent. Titles usually come from the publisher anyway :-)

    Incredible!

    This book brings out a totally different world that you'd probably find alluring t'were it real. The entire book is an ongoing laugh and the serious parts are great. Everything is so incredibly thought out that it is in the running of the top three series that I find incredibly good to read. I like this series and Jim Butcher's 'Dresden Files' and Kim Harrison's witchy books. It's an great thing to read something like this and I can't wait for another book to the series.

    Oh where to begin!

    How about the beginning, after all that is what this book is about. Where did Nightside come from, and just who is John Taylor and what was his mom? what is it that makes this books such a great read? maybe it's the image of ancient Gods relegated to begging for handouts from cardboard boxes. Immortal loves and magical devils (who own taverns), gunfire, auctions, and yeti foot umbrella stands. This book grabs hold of you fast and you won't put it down willingly until it's done. simply a great fun read!
