Swords of Haven and Guards of Haven are a collection of six related mystery novels written by Simon Green. Each has three of the novels in it, and I'm going to write one review for the entire collection. This series follows up on two characters that were introduced in his earlier novel, "Blue Moon," though they've come a long way in their lives. Guards Hawk and Fisher are husband and wife, as well as partners, and attempt to patrol the most crime-ridden area of the most crime-ridden city in the lower kingdoms. Each novel in the collection contains a standalone mystery these characters tackle.Hawk and Fisher are great characters, and the town of Haven is squarely in the tradition of Green's other settings: widely imaginative, gritty, violent, and often gruesome. I enjoyed the traditional mystery-novel stereotypes set in a fantasy/horror world with the added twist of magical rules that the Guards must deal with when solving crimes. As for the stories, Green attempts a couple of locked-house mysteries that are below par for him. The situations stretch credibility and the charaters do stupid things to move the plot along that I found very annoying. The other stories, however, are quite good, especially the final entry in the series.I think the main interest in these books is as antecedant to Green's later, greater "Nightside" and "Deathstalker" series. You can see him trying out some of the ideas that will make those other works so unique and entertaining. I recdmmend reading Green's other series first and then reading these books to explore his development as an author.

As a fan of Simon Green’s urban fantasy series, “Tales from the Nightside” series I was interested enough to give his detective fantasy series a read. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of “Hawk and Fisher “stories, a highly enjoyable detective series set against the backdrop of a fantasy world of sword and sorcery. Husband and wife detectives, Hawk and Fisher, aka Rupert and Julia form the Darkwood fantasy series, are a dynamic crime-fighting team in the city of Haven. Haven is a crime-infested, dismal city wherein the criminals are a ruthless bunch of thug. The team of Hawk and Fisher work so well together and in this dismal and grimy city, this crime fighting couple is feared. Along the theme of the “Nightside” books, the author effectively combines magic, action, and dark humor. This volume contains three novellas and Green does a good job with character development and world building.
