The latest volume in the nightside series of urban fantasy novels.

This is the eleventh novel in the series, and despite it giving a decent amount of exposition that could make it easy for new readers to get into, you are probably better off starting with the first book Something from the Nightside.

This ones runs for two hundred and ninety pages and is divided into eight chapters.

It picks up the story from where the previous book ended. John has to take on new responsibilities for the Nightside. Whether he wants to or not. And a certain legenday sword has just been delivered to him in the post. His investigations into where it came from will take him beyond the Nightside. To a place he thought he'd never go back to.

And that's just the start of his travels...

As ever with this series there is a great amount of invention in the setting, describing strange things and people with throwaway but original lines of dialogue. Whereas the previous book did feel like it was just set up, this one is stronger because it delivers ln that set up. With some good locations, and a well developed plot. And the relationship between John and Suzie does get much more attention that it has in any of the volumes since the two of them got together.

The end of this brings in a couple of other interesting developments that will allow for the characters to develop even further. And should make you eager to find what happens in the forthcoming The Bride Wore Black Leather (Nightside).

In the meantime, though, this is an above average and very good entry in an entertaining series.

I worry about John when he leaves the Nightside but of course I needn't have as he always comes good in the end. Enjoyed this one. It takes place soon after the end of The Good the Bad and the Uncanny with John going home to Shotgun Suzie and finding an unusual sword-shaped package waiting for him. Things progress from there and we go on a trip with John though not his usual trip through the Nightside since he goes to London Proper for a while, leaving Suzie behind. What can I say - we meet Merlin, the London Knights, elves, a host of interesting and unusual characters; we visit Camelot, alternate realities and get up to all kinds of shenanigans before returning to the Nightside and enlisting Suzie's help to fight the good fight against the Big Bad. We find out more about what it really meant to be Walker and more about the history of the elves, and there's a surprise in store for John at the very end of the book! I've read all of Simon R Green's books but the Nightside is definitely my favourite series. I would also recommend the Secret Histories series as Eddie Drood is also a great character and goes on some fun adventures. There is as always some crossover between series and worlds which is great for the fans. 4.5/5

Even though it is brutal and the hero of the piece is often betrayed or misled by those who employ him, there is an honesty about Taylor and his world that speaks as it finds, isn't bothered about political correctness and gets rid of the bad guys instead of making them the victims, paying them benefits and penalising the real victims for living in their own country and daring to have an opinion that clashes with the status quo. This time out Taylor is the recipient of Excalibur and helps us almost revisit Deathstalker for a while as he wields that ancient blade. Taking over from Walker as the new voice of the authorities will give him a very different role and though Susie has a revelation at the end of the book that means Simon Green next Nightside might be Taylor's last outing as a single man and P I, I hope that won't signal the end of this entertaining and well written series, its characters always a joy to come back to. I highly recommend this book.

After a few slightly humdrum offerings Simon Green is back on track, only quibble is the sudden serial mentioning of the Droods it looks as if the Nightside is going to intersect with the Secret Histories at some point and I'd count that as unnecessary.

i really like this seris of books, brilliant to pick up and just enjoy. i love the characters [especially the lead] and the plot lines are always good. as always, a fast paced, well written romp through the nightside [and london], plenty of action and plenty of laughs [tongue in cheek]. note to author [sorry about what i'm going to say]; this book is short, like most of the others and if i were to start reading them i'd not buy the individual books and collect the omnibuses that come out periodically. enjoy.

The Nightside series are a fantastic way to lose hours, entertaining, amusing and a thoroughly good read. A Hard Days Knight is the penultimate (currently - hint hint Mr Green) in the series and is as fresh as the first. If you like your fantasy fiction with a splash of dark humour running through it then these are the books for you, if not and you are a more traditionalist try Hawk and Fisher. Excalibur, an evil Merlin, an alternative Camelot where people are tortured for fun and knights in demonic armour, what chance do they have against a woman with a shotgun and a bloke with a white trenchcoat and a pocket full of pepper? Absolutely brilliant!!!
