Overview

Six year-old Zoe York has been taken and her mother has come to Remy for help. She shows him crude, childlike drawings that she claims are Zoe's visions of the future, everything leading up to her abduction, and some beyond.

Remy Chandler is back in another fabulous twist of combining religious/biblical history and contemporary fantasy while still maintaining a measure of respect for religion. Great fun and another wonderful story.

Thomas Sniegoski's lead character, Remi Chandler P.I.,is a fresh persona and has real heart felt appeal as he struggles with the duality of his being to maintain his beloved human nature as his Seraphim nature rises in the presence of evil and corruption. Sniegoski's characters are robust and well developed friends and villians. He easily draws you in to an alternate world coexisting in the shadows of Boston's rhythm, which he depicts so richly. This is just a great series filled with vibrant thoughtful characters in enlivened fast paced and subtly humorous supernatural adventures. If you haven't had the pleasure, please pick up books #1. A kiss before the Apocolypse and book #2. Dancing on the Head of a Pin. Though "Where Angels Fear to Tread" can be read as a stand-alone, why cheat yourself? This series is intelligent, exciting, funny, tender, and just keeps you wanting to see more! And who amongst us can resist the joy of being able to listen into Marlowe's thoughts? Thomas Sniegoski really hit one out of Fenway Park with his Remy Chandler Series!

I recently finished WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD, Thomas Sniegoski's latest installment of the Remy Chandler series. I've loved this series from the start and WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD did not disappoint. Angelic PI, Remy Chandler has what his friend and Homicide Detective Mulvehill would call a weird case. While searching for Zoe who was kidnapped by her father, Remy meets up with Samson who is on his own mission. He's searching for Delilah. Yep, were talking about the Samson and Delilah. As it turns out, everyone's paths lead to Zoe.

February 26, 2010: I can't say that I have been the biggest fan of the urban fantasy genre but I have been totally hooked on Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden Files for a few years. Last summer I picked up the Mean Streets compilation to see what Harry was up to and discovered Sniegoski's Remy Chandler character in his novella "Noah's Orphans". It was a terrific story and an even more interesting concept: An angel living amongst humans working as a private investigator. I immediately picked up the first two novels at my local bookstore and read them both in a single sitting. The books offer an interesting take on the concepts of angels, gods, heaven and hell weaved into two very good mysteries. What I really love, and what I found very moving at times, are the depictions of Remy's relationships with his human wife, his human friend Steve, his friend Francis (a former guardian angel who once was on the wrong side during the war in heaven and now guards one of the gates of hell as a penance) and especially with his dog and best friend, Marlowe. Angels have the ability to talk to animals and we get to eavesdrop on these hilarious and believable conversations. Sniegoski has not missed a beat with his newest installment in the series, "Where Angels Fear to Tread". Remy has been hired by the mother of young autistic girl to search for her kidnapped daughter who seems to have some clairvoyant abilities and may be the key to something big and powerful. He gets a little help from the Old Testament hero Samson, who is still alive, because the little girl is also being sought by Samson's former lover and betrayer Delilah for reasons unknown. Samson is still a little bitter over the breakup. It's a very enjoyable take on the biblical characters and it's obvious the author had a lot of fun making them contemporary and letting us know what they have been up to for the last four thousand or so years. I definitely recommend this book to anyone and I look forward to the next book!

If you want to take a new look at some of our hero from the bible you will love these books as some of those who lived during the time of the bible have come to live in the 21st century.
