Publisher's Summary

"Taylor is the name. John Taylor....My card says I'm a detective, but what I really am is an expert on finding things. It's part of the Gift I was born with as a child of the Nightside - the hidden heart of London where it's always three a.m., where inhuman creatures and otherworldly gods walk side-by-side in the endless darkness of the soul. "Assignment: Locate the Unholy Grail, the cup Judas drank from at the Last Supper. It corrupts all who touch it, but it also grants enormous power. So I've got some competition - from angels, devils, sinners and saints - in the search for the dark goblet."

Search For the Unholy Grail, IN THE NIGHTSIDE

IN THE NIGHTSIDE, if you go to Strange Fellows, you will meet several characters. You will only meet these characters IN THE NIGHTSIDE. You might meet Suzie shooter or Shotgun Suzie or Suzie, Oh Shit it's you IN THE NIGHTSIDE. You could meet Alex, ALEX COULD GLOOM FOR THE OLYMPICS. IN THE NIGHTSIDE, you get great descriptions, especially of women. One woman was EXCEDINGLY BLONDE. Another was SUPERNATURALY SLENDER and there was the woman with IMPOSSIBLY SLENDER LEGS. Only IN THE NIGHTSIDE.

If you have read book one and liked it you should like this one just as well. YOU ALWAYS WHERE A FRUSTRATED DRAMA QUEEN.

It don't matter which order you read these in. YOU PROBABLY WOULDN'T NOW WHAT TO DO WITH A NEWT'S EYE.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

A gross fairy tale for adults

It's short and fast and the narrator is pretty good - dramatic but not over-the-top. This story is a bit better than the first in the series and the phrase "in the Nightside" was only repeated 20-30 times instead of 100-110 times as in the first one.

It's like a child's fantasy book (talking frogs, princesses, evil witches) except it involves gory, gross and rude characters instead. The characters are excessive, over-written and nonsensical, some seemingly put in just to be gory and gross. The story is like an attempt to tell a silly and gross fairy-tale for adults.

While I don't regret listening to it (again, it's too expensive for the length of the story) I think I'll call it quits on this series.

- crazybatcow "I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)"
