And yet darker it grows for John Taylor as he attempts to travel back in time to the very beginning of the Nightside, so as to possibly stop his mother (just in case you haven't read the previous book, let's just say she's an extremely powerful supernatural being and quite a nasty piece of work) from ... something evil.

OK, so that's mighty nebulous, but there are so many twists and turns that I just don't want to spoil. In short, it's another delighful read and some of the happenings relate directly to and in fact explain certain parts of the previous books. And it all seems to be leading to a MAJOR showdown ...

Fifth in the series. Almost worth skipping except for a few scenes where we get important information about quite a few of the characters.

Good read. Advances the story quite nicely. Can't wait for the next one.

Another fast-paced chapter in the John Taylor series, filled with the signature quips that make these books so enjoyable. The time travel aspect of this installment makes for an interesting adventure and explains many of the side stories found in the earlier books. And of course, leaves many questions to be answered....

One of the main characters introduced in Paths Not Taken is Tommy Oblivion, an existential private investigator, who uses probabilities and a very persuasive manner to aid John Taylor in his quest to find his mother. A short story featuring Tommy Oblivion appears in the anthology, Powers of Detection.

Not SO much a Review and an opinion....... I Love the John Taylor Series... But I think 'Paths not Taken' might just be the best of the bunch...
