4.0 out of 5 stars The perils of the Nightside 26 Aug 2011
Imagine Harry Dresden loose in a Neil Gaiman-style world, and you'll have some idea of what's going on in the world of the Nightside.

And "Into the Nightside" introduces us to the first two fantasy-noir adventures of Simon R. Green's strange, creepy other-London. The first book in here starts a little shakily, but once Green finds his footing the story rolls along with a few slow spots, theological fast-and-looses, and the occasional moment that is just too weird for words.

John Taylor fled the Nightside years ago, and set up shop as a PI in London, using his special talent (finding things) to eke out a living. But when wealthy Joanna Barrett hires him to find her teenage daughter, Taylor finds himself leading her into the Nightside, and acquainting her with the terrifying, often gruesome chaos that dwells inside it.

Then they accidentally step into a timeslip, and John finds himself facing a ruined, dead world. Worse, it turns out HE was the one who did it, many years in the past. Tormented by this possible future, John must find the girl who was lured into the Nightside -- and hope that the area doesn't get blown up first.

Amidst strange angel rumors, John Taylor is hired by the Pope's undercover representative, Father Jude. The Vatican wants to hire Taylor to find the Unholy Grail -- the cup that Judas drank from at the Last Supper. Think the One Ring in cup form. So John and Shotgun Suzie prowl through the Nightside, into devil S&M clubs and neo-Nazi halls -- but the angels and demons have landed in the nightside, and will rip it to shreds to find the Grail.

The first half of the first book is basically an introduction to the horrors and wonders of the Nightside. Even if Simon R.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good urban fantasy series 27 July 2010
My first intro to the series - this is an omnibus edition that is actually the first 2 books in the series published under a new name and as 1 book. The series themselves are pretty good, and extremely similar to the Jim Butcher Dresden Files. If you've read those (And I'm a fan) you'll find yourself consistently getting confused cause you may forget which series/author you are reading. To me thats praise for the Nightside series. The differences lie in that that the Dresden series have better more fleshed out characterswith a consistent world with defined rules while teh Nightside revels in pushing more fantastical elements(Seriously very imaginative)and hence is more 1 note on the characters and the rulees, well they never really get locked down well in teh first few books atleast. Both are fun (Though I prefer the Dresden books more)and slightly different variations of coffee.

4.0 out of 5 stars First UK Nightside Omnibus 2 Sep 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This volume collects the first two Nightside novels, 'Something from the Nightside' and 'Agents of Light and Darkness'.

They are dark fantasy romps - perhaps my only gripe is that John Taylor, the hero, is too powerful, some personal suffering along the lines of Harry Dresden or Felix Castor may have helped.

Thoroughly enjoyable read. You really believe that The Nightside exists. An action packed romp with characters you buy into and like, despite their flaws.
