“I'd waited quite a while for this release, as Green is among my favorite authors. He's easily the most original and imaginitive author on my shelves.
Didn’t Like It

“Slowly gaining pace and momentum. But Nightside seems to be at a short supply for interesting characters. Repetitive plot and absence of Suzie the entire story did pull the story down. But having said that, the character of Bettie & the beginning sequence alone placed the story way above the previous one. Hoping the next one will turn out better.”getarc wrote this review Friday, October 25, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Still a stand alone Nightside novel with the beginnings of an arc. Pretty forgettable. ”Linsey wrote this review Monday, June 24, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I took a break from the Nightside after the Lilith War and the death of the Authorities. The Unnatural Inquirer turned out to be almost another starting place. If you hadn't been reading the series, I think you could come in here and not be lost. The past events are described in short-hand and are just enough to fill in the blanks. This one is an interesting case, with just the right mix of recurring characters and new players. And all the hardboiled depravity I’ve come to expect from the Nightside.”belsum wrote this review Wednesday, April 11, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“While still a good book, this one bordered on being too passive. The plot wasn't as entertaining as previous books, and it pushed the love interest angle too hard considering there was never really any doubt about who was going to be the choice. ”The Supreme Force wrote this review Friday, March 30, 2012.

“John Taylor teams up with girl reporter (and part demon) Bettie Divine to find a supposed recording of the Afterlife.”Felicity F wrote this review Saturday, January 7, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The 8th book in the Nightside series. Someone has apparently recorded a snippet of the Afterlife and has sold the DVD rights to the Unnatural Inquirer but then disappeared and the paper wants him found so have hired John Taylor to do just that. With everyone else looking for it as well, possibly even Heaven and Hell, can he find it in time or merely pick up the pieces?
Good Nightside book but without an overarching plot, the series has gotten thin. John Taylor can always use his gifts or some other Deux Ex Machina to get out of every situation he encounters with almost no help from anyone these days. I keep hoping that they'll come up with something else besides he is just super powerful so always wins ones of these days.
“Loved it! After the harrowing excitement of the Lillith War, this is a nice return to a simpler story-telling adventure. I enjoyed the search for the disc and the way Bettie kept asking Taylor if he wasn't some kind of hero. For all his protests that he's not, I thought she made some good points and I hope to hear more about that in future books. It really wetted my appettite for the next installment, which is apparently following up on the breadcrumbs left behind in this book for the next Big Bad.”Peachy K wrote this review Monday, May 2, 2011.

“This was a great book in the series. I love the character of Bettie the demon girl reporter. It was fun to see how Bettie and John interacted. She was always wide eyed and asking questions about dangerous people and things they did and he always smiled and would say things like, "oh yeah, that was me." hee hee. Nice light side of the Nightside.”Jo-anna M wrote this review Monday, January 10, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
