Publisher's Summary

John Taylor is a P.I. with a special talent for finding lost things in the dark and secret center of London known as the Nightside. He's also the reluctant owner of a very special-and dangerous-weapon. Excalibur, the legendary sword. To find out why he was chosen to wield it, John must consult the Last Defenders of Camelot, a group of knights who dwell in a place that some find more frightening than the Nightside. London Proper. It's been years since John's been back-and there are good reasons for that.

Critic Reviews

“The best novel to date in the series, bar none.” (Green Man Review)
“By now, Marc Vietor knows this series inside and out, and he uses his warm, rich baritone to good effect in bringing the cheeky characters to life…Vietor has fun with the text, growling his way through Taylor’s lines, giving listeners over-the-top villains and a fittingly dramatic King Arthur. His narration makes for a fun trip through this urban fantasy world.” (AudioFile)

A Dark Green

My first Nightside book. I read it because of the Excalibur angle.
I wasn't bored. The book is fairly fast-paced and almost off-handedly violent--but it's fun in a sort of distopian, over-the-top way.

Worth it

Dark and well written story, with just the right amount of implausible twists you expect (but don't see coming) in a Nightside book.

It kept me engaged and managed to surprise me quite a few times.

Again, a great reading but...

Any additional comments?

The Nightside books are great stuff to listen to when you just want some light entertainment, and Marc Vietor's reading is, as ever, very good (But I winced each time he mispronounced Gaea and Castle Inconnu!)I only wish they'd got him to do the Forest Kingdom (Blue Moon) books, as I simply can't listen to the narrator they've used.
