Someone finally got it right.

Over the last twenty five years, I have read hundreds if not thousands of books. Most of which fall in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi genres. Quite a few of the books had a 'fallen angel' as a character in the work. In all of those efforts, I cannot remember one author who made me care about him, her or it. No one was able to humanize the inhuman. They were cardboard cutouts, marching in predictable steps thru the storyline, and just as remarkable. Now comes along Thomas E. Sniegoski. In 'A Kiss Before the Apocalypse', the character of Remy Chandler, onetime celestial being, now a hard working Boston PI, becomes a person, not a caricature. Sniegoski makes you understand why anyone would literally leave Heaven to walk amongst a bunch of overachieving baboons. He will make you understand why someone would do what was right even though it cost them the love of their, oh so long, life. He will make you care. The irony of this book, with characters like Remy, the sad but immortal Lazarus or even the Angel of Death, my favorite character was Marlowe, Remy's dog. The most hard hearted person in the world will give an AAAGH, whenever Marlowe runs across the page. Pick up this book, you will not be disappointed.

I bought this because the writer was listed in an anthology that included a short story by Jim Butcher. I bought one book by every writer included, except Butcher (I alredy own them all). This was not the worst book I bought that day, but I cannot recommend it. I did manage to get all the way through it, but only because it was really short. The main character was really hard to accept, an angel who believes in all the things associated with a Judeo Christian afterlife stuff, but not the Judeo Christian during life stuff. Reminds me of the old song lyric, they say they want the kingdom, but they don't want God in it. The hero would have been much more interesting if he made a commitment one way or the other.
