Novels of the Nightside Novels of the Nightside by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Nathan Brazil
One lead character adventuring through an even dozen titles, aided by a solid cast of reoccurring major characters, handfuls of minor characters and one shots, half a dozen running themes, plus individual side quests that can cover a quarter of a book. So far, it sounds good though not so very different from any other fantasy series. But this is the Nightside, where nothing is ever quite the way it seems. The Nightside is a small city, located somewhere beneath London, and accessed via the London tube network. People can arrive there accidentally, but most of those who enter know exactly where they are going. In the Nightside the darkest needs of the human condition are catered for in all their compelling, addictive and grotesque forms. All books in the series are first and foremost the story of John Taylor, the supernatural son of a creature from Biblical legend. Not that you'd know from looking at him.

Blood and Honor Blood and Honor by Simon R. Green
an audiobbok review by Sarah Trowbridge
The kingdom of Redhart faces a succession crisis. Old King Malcolm has died, under ambiguous circumstances, and it's unclear which of his three sons is destined to take the throne. According to ancient Redhart tradition, the rightful ruler is the one who can produce the official crown and seal and then survive a blood-oath ritual on the ancient Stone beneath the throne. The trouble is, none of the three princes are exactly king material.

The Good, The Bad, And The Uncanny The Good, The Bad, And The Uncanny by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Michael M Jones
Things never slow down in the Nightside, the secret black heart of London where it's always the darkest part of the night and the shadows have teeth.

From Hell With Love From Hell With Love by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Michael M Jones
When it comes to secret organizations dedicated to protecting the world from all threats, both internal and external, no group is as resourceful, widespread, or potentially insane as the Droods. And of that infamous family, none is as dangerous or misunderstood as Eddie Drood, who has saved the world more than a few times in his checkered career. After a stint as head of the family, he's back to being a nice, normal field agent like he prefers.

reviewed by Michael M Jones

Guess who gets tapped to try to resolve this situation? John Taylor, that's who. He's a private detective who's handled the weirdest, nastiest, most suicidal, most insane cases the Nightside has to offer, and they think he's just right for the job.

Deathstalker Deathstalker by Simon R. Green
reviewed by John Berlyne
This is the first in the series featuring protagonist Owen Deathstalker and the story of his rebellion against the evil Empire. We meet Owen at a turning point in his life -- a historian by profession, he lives the languid life of the lazy aristocracy. However, in a flash all this is stripped from him, for he has been outlawed, which basically means everyone is suddenly looking either to capture or to kill him.

Deathstalker Coda Deathstalker Coda by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Michael M Jones
Thanks to the efforts of Paragon-turned-Emperor Finn Durandal, the Golden Age that came about through Owen Deathstalker's sacrifice two centuries ago is over, drowned in a sea of blood and immolated in the fires of hatred. The Paragons themselves, one-time champions of the Empire, now exist as meat puppets for the terrifying uber-Espers, psychic creatures of unholy power. Worst of all, the Terror, ancient enemy of all that lives, is approaching the capital plan of Logres, slowly and inexorably destroying all in its path. All hope is not lost.

Deathstalker Return Deathstalker Return by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Michael M Jones
Former Paragon and King's Champion Lewis Deathstalker is on the run, disgraced and condemned by the people he used to protect. His companions include his lover, the famous Jesamine Flowers, the alien reptiloid known only as Saturday, the psychic con man Brett Random, and the sociopathic gladiator Rose Constantine. Their mission is an impossible one.

Nightingale's Lament Nightingale's Lament by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Michael M Jones
In the Nightside, London's secret, dark heart, anything is possible, and sooner or later, everyone who's anyone comes to visit, or to stay. There's a lot that goes on in the Nightside, almost all of it illegal, immoral, unpleasant, or self-destructive. It's a place where angels and demons jostle each other in the waiting lines of clubs run by the Fae, where time travelers get revenge on pulp-era adventurers, where monsters perform in musical numbers, and where the taxicabs might just eat you if you forget to tip the driver. And that's on a good day.

Deathstalker Return Deathstalker Return by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Cindy Lynn Speer
Many years ago, Owen Deathstalker and his friends saved humanity and created a golden age, one that is now endangered from within as well as without. There is a prophecy that states that when they need Owen again, he will come back, and boy, do they need him. His friends all have one goal -- to find Owen so that he can stop the Terror, a rather frighteningly described eater of worlds.

Drinking Midnight Wine Drinking Midnight Wine by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Victoria Strauss
Toby Dexter is an ordinary guy, with a dead-end job at a bookstore and an aimless, totally predictable existence. He has always longed for something different, something better, but having reached his 30s, he has pretty much given up. There's just one not-quite-ordinary thing in his life: he has fallen in love with a woman who shares his daily commute. He doesn't know a thing about her, but still he can't get her out of his mind. One day, in the train station where both Toby and his mystery woman finish their commute, Toby watches the woman walk through a door he's positive was never there before. On impulse, he follows... and everything changes.

Beyond The Blue Moon Beyond The Blue Moon by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Lisa DuMond
Hawk and Fisher are law keepers of the most dangerous order. To fall afoul of these two is to sign your own death warrant. They are unbeatable, unstoppable warriors and incredible wiseasses, besides. No husband-and-wife team ever fought evil the way these living legends do. No one ever swung a blade or an axe like this, either.

Deathstalker Destiny Deathstalker Destiny by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Todd Richmond
Be prepared for an incredible romp through a wonderful universe of space opera, filled with outrageous and incredibly powerful heroes and villains, swords and disruptors and more lethal creatures than you can imagine. If you've read the first 4 books of the Deathstalker series, then read on.

Swords of Haven Swords of Haven by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Todd Richmond
The novels are a lot of fun. Hawk and Fisher are a couple of honest, straight-talking, tough-as-nails Guards who use steel as often as wits to keep themselves out of trouble. They bully their way through situations, often just letting their reputations work their magic. The plots are straight-forward, with just enough of a twist to keep you guessing until the end.

Deathstalker Honor Deathstalker Honor by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Todd Richmond
If you thought the saga of Owen Deathstalker was over, think again. Just because the revolution was a success doesn't mean that their work is done. The government is in shambles, the Hadenmen 2nd Crusade is underway, the AIs of Shrub are on the move and something scary is coming out of the Dark Void.

Twilight of the Empire Twilight of the Empire by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Todd Richmond
This is a compilation of three novels set in Simon R. Green's Deathstalker universe. Each of these novels was published separately before the first of the Deathstalker trilogy. It can be read without any reference to Green's other books.

Deathstalker Rebellion Deathstalker Rebellion by Simon R. Green
reviewed by Todd Richmond
There's a lot happening here but it's all pretty easy to keep track of: fighting, treachery, intrigue, romance, and lots of good plain fun.
