'Another wildly fantastic extravaganza' Publisher's Weekly.
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
The latest installment in Green's Nightside series is a delight - exciting, action packed, truly suspenseful
Strong characterization of a complicated hero is one of the qualities that makes Green's series effective. With dark humor and psychological horror he rivals urban horror writers such as Jim Butcher and Christopher Golden. Laurell Hamilton fans should enjoy this series as well
NIGHTINGALE'S LAMENT offers all the pleasures of the previous novels while still seeming fresh. Green's prose is consistently funny... The NightSide is entertainingly explored, and Green creates several scenes of horrifically imaginative awe. Green is a remarkably effective writer, and his work here is exemplary. He describes vistas that are astonishing, inspiring and darker than the reader might expect. Green's characterization deserves praise as well as his prose. Simon R. Green is a man who knows what works and delivers...no less than a perfectly satisfactory reading experience
NIGHTINGALE'S LAMENT is a good addition in the Nightside series
