Simon R. Green's Nightside series is a delight from beginning to end... The Nightside books are, unashamedly, all about having a bloody good time reading works that have more than their fair share of "ics." Fantastic, comedic, sarcastic, caustic and heroic are just a few that spring to mind
All the elements of a classic PI story... I find this series to be totally enjoyable, and this latest one is no exception.. Green is a natural story teller with a wonderful imagination. Think Mickey Spillane writing espisodes of Millenium. He makes the Nightside come alive in such a vivid way that you wonder if maybe he hasn't actually been there himself. Take a vacation with Green into The Nightside . . .
Green is a master chef. Fans of Harry Dresden would find John Taylor a terrific read...but then again, so would any fan of good, dark urban fantasy. Recommended
Infused with a wonderful dark humor that is as unique as the Nightside itself
The Nightside books are quick, easy, and fun reads. Their strength is Green's setting: the Nightside is bursting with flavor
Hex and the City is for me the best Nightside book yet, it further enlarges the Nightside universe both by showing more of what the Nightside has to offer...and also nailing that dark gritty and often times humorous setting on the spot...You won't be disappointed
