Reseña del editor
John Taylor is a P.I. with a special talent for finding lost things in the dark and secret center of London known as the Nightside. He's also the reluctant owner of a very special-and dangerous-weapon. Excalibur, the legendary sword. To find out why he was chosen to wield it, John must consult the Last Defenders of Camelot, a group of knights who dwell in a place that some find more frightening than the Nightside. London Proper. It's been years since John's been back-and there are good reasons for that.

And what a class it is. This is absolutely fantastic. Full of new characters, honourable legends, tie in's with his other books, plenty of action and mystery. You knwo the general storyline- John Taylor has Excalibur and has to find King Arthur, but you never quite know what is going to happen, or even if he will indeed find him, until he does. Great book. Great execution. Well worth the wait and I sincerely hope and pray the next one is as good.
Should you read it? YES!!!!!!!!
On a personal note, after I read this book, I wished that I had discovered this series only recently, instead of years ago. That way, I would be able to enjoy many these books consecutively one after the other, without having to wait 1-2 years in between like we have to now. The one downside to his books are that they are a bit short, usually between 200 and 300 pages. It's a bit like a drug. There's the anticipation, then the actual high when you read it, and then it's over all too soon.
(not that I have personal experience with drugs of course)
Can't wait for the next one!
With this book, all bets are off, and what a wonderful thing! Yes, he is still doing X, and even a little Y. (gasp) But now there is Z, and even A! The old feeling of John and Suzie Shooter working together and feeding each other's straight lines are back. This is why I loved this series, and will continue to read it. And even though there are new twists to the book, it also takes you back to what made the series so great. The writing and editing made this book fresh and alive, the drawing reader back into the story and the lives of the people in it.
It's John being the biggest bad-you-know-what in town while still being the most human of all. But NOT nice, hell no, not nice. Can you really call a guy who puts curses, spells and explosives in his front non-lawn to deter salesmen nice? (Sorry, minor spoiler there) He is the unique trustworthy person you can call on when everybody else, or thing, has failed or let you down. All in a world mixed up various and bizarre magics and sciences just as strange, if not stranger. And sometimes, some REALLY off the wall religions.
If you have not read the entire series and you like urban fantasy with cutting humor, lots of violence and daring-do, try it!
John Taylor and Shotgun Suzie discover that the sword-like package that showed up at the end of book 10 is indeed Excaliber and it is here for a purpose. If only John knew what that purpose was. Now John has to journey out of the Nightside to London Proper to visit the London Knights in hopes that they will have some insight into what the sword's return means.
This was another great Nightside novel and it gets up back more to the style of the books mid-way through the series. We are back to a more epic storyline, where John is helping to save the Nightside (and maybe the whole world) from certain destruction. We get a lot of page space with John and Suzie, which was wonderful.
The main characters dealt with in this novel focus around the London Knights so they are not as quirky as some of John's sidekicks in previous novels, this is balanced by the fact that Suzie is featured throughout the book. Many events in earlier books are tied in with this book. There is a lot of action and a lot of things going on. I enjoyed the evil alternate Earth with the evil Knights of the Round Table and the inclusion of the Arthurian legend throughout. A lot of events surrounding the Elves are dealt with and the Droods from Green's Secret Histories series are mentioned a few times in passing.
I did miss some of my old favorite characters. Razor Eddie never shows, and neither do many of the other big players in the Nightside. They are mentioned in passing, but never given more page space then that.
The book ends well and with a rather large surprise. It really makes me look forward to the next book in this series. The plot is engaging and the book moves at a fast paced, those familiar with this series will find it is similar in writing style to previous Nightside books.
Overall a very satisfying addition to the series, fans of the Nightside won't be disappointed. I was happy that Green went back to a more epic storyline and that John and Suzie get so much page space. I was a little disappointed that we didn't see more of our other favorite characters, but was happy with how the storyline included a lot of Arthurian legend throughout. There are surprises in this book and I am excited to see what the next Nightside novel brings.
