Together, their task is to bring the killer to justice before the mounting panic erupts into an all-out War of the Gods, which could destroy the city of Haven.

The third 'Hawk and Fisher' novel is the sort of thing it feels hard to review fairly: because it's good enough for it to be frustrating that it isn't better. It's hard not to be harsh on it for its flaws - slightness, shallowness, lack of care and polish, and so on - and hard to make clear amid that just how many virtues it has - it's enjoyable, sometimes funny, clever, surprisingly complex (and different!) in its characterisations, genuinely well-written in its set-pieces, at times quite tense ...more

This book took a little while for me to get into it, but it won me over by the end. This is a heroic fantasy version of a police procedural, a fantasy buddy cop novel starring Hawk and Fisher. This time out the duo is assigned to the God Division to investigate the murders of three gods on The Street of the Gods. The writing early on is fairly plain and can wander into the cliche, it begins to pick up its own rhythm and character by end. The fantasy portion of the book is handled well, the myste ...more

А, тук вече си говорим! :) Великолепна фантазия, огромен пантеон от всякакви извратени божества (или Същества...), неизвестен до последния момент Богоубиец... Много добре! :) започна да става интересно... :)

3.5 stars.

5 star rating system is really insufficient for rating all the books. So I just add a decimal point from now one in my ratings. And I don't rate books in different genres on the same scale. There are books for children that are 5 star in my opinion, but that doesn't mean I think they are equal to a scientific 5 star book.

Enough about the rating system.

The God Killer was a typical sequel of this series, nothing really special. Not as fun as the previous one. There were some mystery in

This one was very good. I always love when Simon Green takes us to the Street of the Gods. The beings in the Nightside always seem a bit darker and more powerful than in Hawk & Fisher, but i still love it. While i did kinda see the ending coming there was a good bit of twisting to it. Reading this book really makes me miss The Nightside Series.

This was a well written action story. Don't expect emotional angst--they're always snarky when things get tense. Don't expect amazing world building--aside from some creative magical beings it's a very standard medieval world. But if you want fun and a murder mystery with some decent plot twists then you'd enjoy this book. Think Lethal Weapon minus the depression and plus magic bad guys.

первые две книги читались с трудом, русский перевод чем-то подсознательно бесил. с третьей перешла на английский - и вся серия неожиданно заиграла новыми красками.
Из The God Killer вышел бы неплохой фильм: мужественные герои, интересный антураж - одна из самых загадочных улиц Хэйвена, Улица Богов, непостижимые существа, убийства, расследования, и парочка тайн)

Solid swords & sorecery adventure. Hawk and Fisher must discover a mysterious God Killer. The story is gritty, fast paced and surprisingly tragic. If you like "The Nightside' you will like this book as well.

3.5 stars. I expected a bigger plot twist but it was well written, aside from the description of hawk and fisher, which were pretty much copied and pasted from the previous book.

Simon Richard Green is a British science fiction and fantasy-author. He holds a degree in Modern English and American Literature from the University of Leicester. His first publication was in 1979.

His Deathstalker series is partly a parody of the usual space-opera of the 1950s, told with sovereign disregard of the rules of probability, while being at the same time extremely bloodthirsty.
