    fun and macabre

    All the books in the Nightside Series are quite good. I bought this because I was re-reading the series and couldn't locate my old copy.

    Well written and fast paced.

    This book, along with the others in the series are a delight to read. The characters frequently depict some of the best archtypes in some of the strangest situations imaginable. The scenes are frequently filled with humorous items barely described, yet iconic in their on right.

    fantastic fantasy with some mystery

    In the place know as the known as the Nightside, a realm in another dimension that can be accessed in London, the name John Taylor means apprehension to the denizen of the magical area. Residents of the perpetual three in the morning locale are divided when it comes to whether John is a while knight or evil, but all fear him. His supporters feel that this sleuth is the next monarch while his detractors want this Abomination dead. Recently John has his worst nightmare has turned real. He dreamt that his magical home was a wasteland with everyone dead all because he sought to meet his mother. Now he knows his mother Lilith, Adam¿s first wife, created Nightside as a haven from the Heaven-Hell eternal war, but she is back and since he knows who she is so the beginning of the end has started unless John can find away to prevent the pending disaster. He visits Old father Time so he can travel back to the beginnings when Lilith created Nightside or perhaps earlier before she was exiled form the Garden. Somewhere back in time he must confront her knowing that even if he wins he may not return to see his victory. --- The fifth Nightside tale is a fantastic fantasy with some mystery, but less than usual, to enhance the tale. The story line is action-packed from the moment that John realizes by learning the identity of his mother, who has just returned to Darkside after eons away, the nightmare that he has feared for seemingly ever has been set in motion. John is at his best in this fabulous entry that easily stands alone yet newcomers will seek Simon R. Green¿s previous four thrillers. --- Harriet Klausner
