    It's interesting, I've had this book in my library for a decade, long enough to have forgotten how it all turns out. But I've just finished all of the Dresden files (and I've got Glen Cook's detective series T'd up next). Anyway, on its own the Nightside series and these set of books in particular are an interesting take on gods and angels and other assorted supernatural characters. There's a lot of violence and set pieces and conflict as there should be in a "hard boiled detective meets LOTR" s It's interesting, I've had this book in my library for a decade, long enough to have forgotten how it all turns out. But I've just finished all of the Dresden files (and I've got Glen Cook's detective series T'd up next). Anyway, on its own the Nightside series and these set of books in particular are an interesting take on gods and angels and other assorted supernatural characters. There's a lot of violence and set pieces and conflict as there should be in a "hard boiled detective meets LOTR" sort of book. It's fun and a decent read. The main character has somewhat of an inner life, but hews more to the traditions of the HBD in that he's the rock on which the world breaks, no significant changes. Which is why I'd put the Dresden files significantly above this as literature. Dresden actually learns and changes. His friends aren't just window dressing or cannon fodder, they have actual inner lives and they change and mature. In fact some of the short stories go into quite a bit of detail on their changes. At the end of several of the Dresden books I had a tear in my eye and a catch in my throat. At the end of a Nightside book, I was satisfied but not moved.

    When I first read Mean Streets with the short story featuring John Taylor I was interested in the character (if not the subject matter of the story) and wanted to know his history. So I picked up the Nightside books and started reading. Three books in I hadn't gotten the answers I was looking for about his mother and the reason certain "people" called him a King in waiting. I had checked this book out with the others, but wasn't really looking forward to reading it as I found Simon R. Green's wr When I first read Mean Streets with the short story featuring John Taylor I was interested in the character (if not the subject matter of the story) and wanted to know his history. So I picked up the Nightside books and started reading. Three books in I hadn't gotten the answers I was looking for about his mother and the reason certain "people" called him a King in waiting. I had checked this book out with the others, but wasn't really looking forward to reading it as I found Simon R. Green's writing a little repetative and tedious. I kinda picked this up as a "might as well give it a try" and found exactly what I'd wanted in the first place. This book combines three books (Hex and the City, Paths Not Taken, and Sharper Than A Serpent's Tooth) into one omnibus telling John Taylors search for the truth about his mother and the journey he has to take to separate himself from his "destiny" according to her. While it is possible to read this without having read the previous books (that's part of the tediousness) you don't get the full backgrounds of several of the characters and situations (time travel makes things interesting) if you haven't.
