Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books. While the spotlight is always on the new releases, Throwback Thursday features a book published five or more years ago.

Title: Something from the Nightside

Author: Simon R. Green

Original Publication Date: January 1st, 2003

Available at: Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble

From Goodreads:

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.

This series is something along the vein of the Dresden Files. It’s gritty and full of magic just like Harry Dresden’s world. Except it has its own magic, its own characters. Its distinctive in that way too. The Nightside is a landscape that is hard to forget. It’s full of sorcery and demons. Witches and bounty hunters. It’s also full of violence. It’s definitely not light-hearted.

Although this series is dark, it’s still fun. It’s another series I keep meaning to pick up again. One of the many on my list.

Oh! This sounds like a fun series that I’d really enjoy! I don’t read enough series with male main characters – because there just aren’t enough that are paranormal in nature. Thanks for sharing!

I should like Dresden more than I do. I’m definite going to give this a try.

This is definitely an alternative to The Dresden Files. See if you like it! 🙂
