Green's Nightside is all the wonders and horrors of this world, and many others, available in one place, making shopping easy - if you can afford the price.
Told from the first person perspective of John Taylor, a "refugee" of the Nightside recently returned from five years living in the mundane London Proper, this series offers a unique take on many ideas.
While it follows the noir trope of a private investigator down on his luck, who often takes cases for reasons other than cash, the book also allows a peek into the fears and loves of one man who cannot escape his fate (or many fates, depending on who you ask).
Watch Taylor grow from fearful to fearless in this series, even as he is faced with tasks that control the fate of not just the Nightside, but all of humanity.

As the Nightside's newest Walker, must against his better judgment, Taylor must still deal with loose strings from his life as a private investigator, particularly the emergence of Excalibur in his hands.
