January will see the release of the penultimate volume in the Nightside series with A Hard Day's Knight. The cover is pretty standard for the series, which are usually quite good except for the last The Good, The Bad, and The Uncanny that was a bit boring with the bland art and coloration. Also, the tentative title for the final volume is The Bride Wore Black Leathers. If you've read more than one book in the series you can probably guess where this is going.
WARNING: As this is a long running series the blurb does contain spoilers, but the cover in this case does as well.
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.
