I've only read one book by this author so far but quite enjoyed it.
So when I noticed there is another book out for his Nightside series i was wondering if anyone had some info on the books out so far :D

1. Something from the Nightside (2003)

2. Agents of Light and Darkness (2003)

3. Nightingale's Lament (2004)

4. Hex and the City (2005)


I cant get my hands on these books from my library, they dont have them in for some reason :(
So if anyone can give me some feedback on them, what you think of them, an idea of what the series is about etc I would be grateful :D

I finished Swords of Haven and was real disappointed. It was like an who done it story with a bit of magic :confused:

I think Green can do better than this to be honest!

Help! I'm stuck in the forums!
I enjoyed the Hawk and Fisher books - light and easy. His Merlin series is fun too. It's an alternate modern day kind of thing with magic...well, it's been a while since I read them but I liked them as well (I think Murder on the Rue Morgue is the first one). He does tend to do a lot of mystery stuff in his books but I'm fond of mystery novels anyway so it is like a mix of two of my fav. genres.

Rune,

I signed up just to answer this question. I have recently read the first three of the Nightside books and I can't get enough of them.

They very easily fit into the "sorcery fantasy + police procedural" genre. Yet there's something more. The Nightside feels very real to me and is somewhere I'm looking forward to revisiting.

Regards,

xRx

I've seem these books and wondered if they were worth reading. I get the impression that Green can be hit and miss with his stories though. I liked Shadow Fall but was very disappointed in Sword of Haven :confused:

I can't say anything about the Nightside books, but I've listened to the "Deathstalker" audio book series series (they broke the book into 5 'episodes' for the audios) and found it to be very entertaining. "Deathstalker Rebellion," also broken into 5 'episodes' is on my TBR short list.

I've read mostly the Deathstalker series and really enjoyed them; however that's because I'm a lover of the John Carter of Mars series by ERB.
I could draw a lot of parallels to the heroes and the science and the swash of buckling involved in the two series.
Not sure what else to say for them--other than he is entertaining.
