I LOVE Simon R Green's works. I haven't been disappointed by his Nightside novels, or The Man With the Golden Torc. Is this any good?
Yes - I like it. Like any Nightside books - fast pace, easy read with the usual cast of characters.
It continues directly from The Good, The Bad and The Uncanny so read that first if you haven't.
Yeah! I just finished The Good, The Bad and The Uncanny. Now if only I can get my hands on a copy of A Hard Day's Knight in the library. TGTBATU (cool acronym) is really, really good, and I can't wait to see what happens to John Taylor next.
Though I have to clear the Deathstalker series first. Right now I'm in the third book, Deathstalker War. Have you read the Deathstalker series? They're not Simon's best effort, and the fact that he wrote those first before the other stories shows in the writing style, but all things considered, they're very intelligent and intriguing. Book 1 spends too much time setting the stage; Book 2 focuses too much on the court intrigues; Book 3 is when things really start to pick up.
-edit- Oh crap, I read this on Wikipedia:
"After Just Another Judgement Day, Green has only three more books planned, which will bring an end to the series."
NOOOO SIMON Y U GOT TO END THE NIGHTSIDE SERIES!!!!
(truthfully, I enjoy the Secret Histories series more than the Nightside, and the Carnegie Institute stories also look to be bloody awesome, so it's not that big a loss if he decides to work on the other series. But yeah, it is the easiest thing in the world
to proclaim as fact that John Taylor's the most badass dude of all of Green's creations)
