Review

PRAISE FOR IN THE HOUSE OF THE WICKED
 

 
"Remy and his human friends are engagingly be viable characters in a series noted for flashes of humor despite its overall serious tone. Series fans and followers of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files will enjoy this urban fantasy"—Library Journal
 
"A fun book...a thought-provoking book."—Innsmouth Free Press

"Sniegoski ups his game in this most recent Remy adventure, and we begin to see some of the grand scheme he is setting up for us. The conflict and situations within this novel are refreshingly personal, bringing the forefront of activity back to the Boston area. The characters are varied and very well-developed, bringing life and humanity into this novel largely centered around the angelic pantheon. With In the House of the Wicked, Sniegoski has crafted a very powerful, very personal tale that is equal parts gut-wrenching, heart-warming, and awe-inspiring."—The Ranting Dragon

"An excellent read and part of an excellent series that gets better and better."—Fangs for the Fantasy

“Powerful…exciting…a terrific fantasy that will thrill readers.”—Genre Go Round Reviews

Format: Paperback
Remiel the seraphim archangel fought on the Creator's side in the civil war against Lucifer's rebel army. Although his side won, he no longer could abide living in heaven after the atrocities that followed after brother fought brother to the death on the battlefield. Thus Remiel becomes Remy Chandler, Boston PI, and in love with a mortal woman who died leaving him a grieving widow who understands Lord Alfred Tennyson's immortal words: "'Tis better to have loved and lost; Than never to have loved at all."

Remy is also very fond of Ashley Berg who he treats like a beloved daughter. When she disappears, Remy vows to find her to bring her home. He learns a sorcerer kidnapped Ashley as an expendable pawn to bring the seraphim to him; he schemes to steal Remy's power and life force in order to become an immortal. Remy is uninterested in the games of Algernon Stearns and Konrad Deacon who drained life forces immediately after Hiroshima; instead he would go to hell to rescue his Ashley, but at what cost as the ensuing battles could leave humanity extinct.

This is a powerful Remy Chandler urban fantasy (see A Hundred Words For Hate) as someone he trusts with his life is loyal to Lucifer; thus the Prince of Deceivers uses his mole to trick Remy into going down wrong paths (leading to twisting subplots). The exciting storyline effortlessly switches back to Deacon's past in WWII and afterward enabling the readers to observe the odious antics of an evil individual planning his coup. House of the Wicked is a terrific fantasy that will thrill readers.

Thomas Sniegoski has created a world that challenges many common concepts about angels and demons. His other series, Fallen, and the Remy Chandler series explore different views of this world. All of his books have been exciting and the next ones are eagerly awaited.

Format: Paperback
This is the fifth book in the Remy Chandler series. Like the last book, this story is told from many different POVs. However for this book it works much better than it did for the previous one.

A woman who is like a daughter to Remy, Ashley, is kidnapped and it is up to Remy to find her. Remy finds that she has been taken by a once-formidable sorcerer who wants vengeance against all who have hurt him. The sorcerer wants to use Remy as a weapon and Remy wants to rescue Ashley..but can he stop the sorcerer without getting Ashley killed?

If you have enjoyed the previous book in this series I think you will enjoy this one as well. This book was similar to the previous book in style; the story is told from a million different points of view. I didn't really like that in the last book, but in this book it works well.

We hear from characters both in the past and the present. Events is the past are told about a group of formidable sorcerers that ended up creating great evil to extend their lives. These events end up tying in with current events that are happening. The time and POV changes do an excellent job of slowly unraveling and revealing the story.

Remy is struggling a lot in this book. His angelic nature has been pushing more and more to the surface and he struggles over and over to keep it in check. This book looks like it will just be the beginning of his struggles to hold on to some of his humanity.

I really wished that Marlowe and Remy's girlfriend, Linda, were in the story a bit more...you barely spend any time with either of them. Not having Marlowe there as much sucked a bit of the fun out of the story. This book didn't have as much humor as previous ones and had a pretty dark and serious storyline.

Fifth in the Remy Chandler urban fantasy series about a man, er, an angel and his dog in Boston.

My Take
Whoa, this was a bit of a departure! Admittedly it's still the supernatural, but it goes way beyond merely supernatural! The story swings between 1945 and today as Sniegoski fills us in on the back history of today's events, pulling in the trauma of World War II and staking a claim on the fear people have for the Apocalypse. This is one of the well-done ones that don't leave you wondering through part of each chapter change just where you are in the history.

The prologue certainly sets up events for later in the main part of the story and it sets me against Konrad Deacon very quickly. What a scumbag!

The action just doesn't stop. Nor does the emotional heart wringing. It's a nasty series of cruelties and betrayals that just keep coming from all directions. Sniegoski has quite the imagination in the monsters he's created and his take on human psychology--the good and the evil--is well portrayed.

Okay, I'm totally confused as to how Armaros thinks God is going to let them return to Heaven if they plan to kill all these people.

Remy has certainly been overly cocky in this story. Thinking he's invincible. That boy is gonna need to hit the gym! Or accept more of his Seraphim controlling him. Eeek!

Oh, yeah, Weaponsmart, LOL! Shopping cart and all. Dang good thing that Francis has this passion for weapons...they're gonna need `em. They'll fight for each other. And they'll fight their own particular battles. I certainly felt sorry for Scrimshaw at the end. His obsession with those little bits of paper and how important they were to him.

Oh, wow! God comes to Remy.
