As he questions his fellow guests, Ishmael concludes that at least one of them - not least Ishmael himself - is harboring a dangerous secret. When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.
Owen Deathstalker, last of the infamous warrior Clan, always considered himself more of a writer than a fighter, preferring his history books to making any actual history with a sword.
A Nightside Book: Something from the Nightside 1 by Simon R. Green (2003, Paperback)
But books won't protect him from Her Imperial Majesty Lionstone XIV, who just outlawed and condemned Owen to death, without any explanation, reason, or warning. No wonder she's called the Iron Bitch.

However, years have passed since Owen and his gang of heroes disappeared into legend, and the peace that the Deathstalker bought with his life is quickly coming to an end.
Rupert didn't especially want to be a prince. And he certainly never asked to be the second son of a royal line that really didn't need a spare. So he was sent out to slay a dragon and prove himself - a quest straight out of legend. But he also discovered the kinds of things legends tend to leave out, as well as the usual demons, goblins, the dreaded Night Witch - and even worse terrors hidden in the shadows of Darkwood. Rupert did find a fiery dragon - and a beautiful princess to rescue.
In his spare time Chris is an exorcist without equal, with a gift from God. But when he saves a beatiful girl from a demonic attack, he discovers there is more to fear than just demons.

Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters to vampires Felix Castor is a freelance exorcist, and London is his stomping ground.
It may seem like a good ghostbuster can charge what he likes and enjoy a hell of a lifestyle, but there's a risk: sooner or later he's going to take on a spirit that's too strong for him. When Castor accepts a seemingly simple ghost-hunting case at a museum in the shadowy heart of London, what should have been a perfectly straightforward exorcism is rapidly turning into the Who Can Kill Castor First Show, with demons and ghosts all keen to claim the big prize.

When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos.

The kid has no idea what she's getting herself into You can find anything in the Nightside-if it doesn't find you first.
John Taylor is not a private detective per se, but he has a knack for finding lost things. That's why he's been hired to descend into the Nightside, an otherworldly realm in the center of London where fantasy and reality share renting space and the sun never shines. The first installment is pretty good. It is true that the author says "The Nightside" at least once every 30 seconds but the story was entertaining enough that it did not bother me.
My review though, is not so much for the book but of the narration. The one thing I absolutely loved about this audiobook is the use of narrator Marc Vietor. I loved his deadpan delivery for the books. For me, his voice is the embodiment of John Taylor. He has made the series and as an avid reader I refuse to purchase the novels but will instead listen to the audio.

It's worth checking out especially if you are looking to be entertained during a car trip or even a daily commute. This was a fun listen. Sure, it parallels some other fiction I have listened to before, and some of it comes off a little cheesy reference Shotgun Suzie and Razor Eddy , but it still manages to bring a fun adventure for the casual listener which has a little twist to enjoy in the end. There is magic and mystery to be found in this tale with a man named John Taylor who has the ability to find things in an underworld where nothing is as it seems.
I really enjoyed the first book of this series and was certainly not disappointed with the story and the narrator. The time passed really fast and I couldn't stop listening to what was happening to John Taylor in the "Nightside".
