I'm John Taylor. I work in the Nightside - the gaudy, neon noir, secret heart of London, where it's always 3am. I have a gift for finding things, like the Unholy Grail, Judas's cup that he drank from at the Last Supper.
Fifteen years ago they saved their ravaged land from dark terror. Then they left to escape their own legend. They say you can't go home again. They're wrong. The Forest Kingdom has never fully recovered from the long night of the Blue Moon. Chaos has given rise to dangerous and divisive new beliefs. King Harald has been assassinated. And as warring factions plot to gain power, brave men venture into the fearsome depths of the Inverted Cathedral--and descend into the throes of madness. The kingdom's last hope lies with its long-lost heroes--Prince Rupert and Princess Julia.... Now they're known as Hawk and Fisher. They're tough cops fighting a losing battle in a town called Haven, where virtue invariably turns into vice--and where every good cause is eventually lost. They're ready for a change, for a new challenge. They're going back to the land that still haunts their dreams--as the Blue Moon threatens to rise once again.
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. But the dragon turned out to be a better friend than anyone back at the castle, and with the evil of Darkwood spreading, Rupert was going to need all the friends he could get.
Simon R. Green is an English fantasist and sf writer who is best known for his space opera and his heroic fantasy spoofs. This is just as quirky as his other work. Imagine an alternate Stratford on Avon where a descendant of the God Thor is just hanging out and where an evil genius plans to destroy both this alternate world and the real one. This is fantasy that is just plain fun.
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 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.
They're the battle-scarred crimebusters of a neverending urban war.... Hawk rules the streets by broadsword. Fisher cracks down on toughs with the deadly dagger that she wields with unflinching skill. Their merciless beat is the rough town misnamed Haven--a dark and murderous place overrun with spell-casters, demons, and thieves. Ready money will buy anything in their town... Anything except justice. That requires a magic touch.

As a Drood field agent I wore the golden torc, I killed monsters, and I protected the world. I loved my job. Right up to the point when my own family declared me rogue for no reason, and I was forced to go on the run.
