104:78 Paths Not Taken by Simon R. Green

The 5th book in the Nightside series by Simon Green.  Last book John Taylor finally found out that his mother was none other than Adam's first wife, Lilith.  A being with incredible power and who created the Nightside.  She's back and has decided that the Nightside has lost it's way and is no longer serving the purpose for which she intended so she is preparing to destroy it and start anew.  But not if her son has anything to say about it.

John proposes going back through time to the beginnings of the Nightside to see if he can gain clues from that to help him thwart his mother in the upcoming battle.  Father Time sends him back but only part way and from there, John and his companions are on their own.

A lot of mysteries are cleared up in this one and it sets the stage nicely for the war to come.  So glad I have the rest of the series (that's written so far) waiting in the wings.  It's a fun series that's capable of entertaining me without making me think but it's easy enough to read a few pages and the put down and go about my day.  And the best part is my teenager likes them so it gives us a series that we both enjoy to chat about.  There is nothing better than that!
