5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mace & Lacey Gannon on September 5, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This latest novel in the Menagerie series is quite easily the very best of the series thus far. Authors Christopher Golden and Thomas E. Sniegoski have penned the ultimate in dark fantasy adventures that rival the Award-winning Shadow Saga that marks Christopher Golden's very best writing.

Crashing Paradise clearly shows that co-author Thomas Sniegoski helps create this novel to be the perfect mixing of mythological creatures of the dark with Biblical mythos to create the ultimate hardcore Dark Fantasy adventure that will thrill fans of this genre, showing clearly that these two authors are at the top of their game.

Whether you've read the other 3 Menagerie novels or not, you can easily read this as a stand alone novel, capturing all the beauty and savagery that CRASHING PARADISE produces.

The new Legion of Doom the author's integrate in this novel are fully fleshed-out, believable monsters that are not your typical cardboard cut-out baddies. That's what makes this series - and this book especially! - stand out as the ultimate in the most evidently ever-growing and most popular and hot genre going now - Dark Urban fantasy.

From Earth to The Garden of Eden, authors Golden and Sniegoski create a solid storyline chock-full of interesting and ever-growing characters that fit inside this world-building juggernaut that will surely tittilate you into reading into the early hours of the morning. Yes, it is just that great!

The Menagerie battle their most dangerous foes to date here, from angels to demons in their myriad forms, all vying for domination in the beauty and savagery of the Garden of Eden.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By SciFiChick VINE VOICE on February 11, 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When demonic forces decide to storm Eden, they kidnap Eve, the one person who may be able to get them through the gate. Now the Menagerie, a team of paranormal individuals, must track them down and stop the vampires and demons from destroying paradise.

Led by sorcerer Arthur Doyle, the Menagerie are a unique cast of characters, from hobgoblins to shapeshifters. Though, the character of Eve is by far the most interesting. After her exile from Eden she also birthed the evil race of vampires. But now, Eve seeks redemption and has been trying to hunt down and destroy the evil that she helped create.

Crashing Paradise is the 4th novel in the Menagerie series, but can definitely stand alone. There was enough backstory on the characters to give a general idea of who they were, so I wasn't too confused. Containing plenty of action and violence, this was an exciting dark fantasy that intrigued me enough to want to go back and check out the rest of the series.

Well I have read all four books many times over now and I had gotten tired of waiting for the beat down of the demigorgon. So I decided to Email the guys. They emailed me back....Wow is right, I was surprised too. The bad news is Their idiot publisher(my words not theirs) decided to pull the plug on any further books in the series. So here we are with a wonderful story line, interesting characters, and no end in sight. Tis truly a sad day!!!!
