Remy Chandler 'is a character I can't wait to see again.'( Christopher Golden, bestselling author of The Lost Ones)

Still mourning the loss of his wife, fallen angel Remy Chandler has immersed himself in investigating dangerous supernatural cases. His latest: the theft of a cache of ancient weaponry stolen from a collector who deals in antiquities of a dark and dubious nature.

It was Paradise until the Morningstar let pride and jealousy turned him away from the Creator. He and his allies went to war against those loyal to the Lord. Angel fought angel until Heaven was filled with the dead. Although Archangel Remiel of the host of the Seraphim fought on the winning side against Lucifer and his rebels, he witnessed the atrocities that his squad of angels committed in the name of the Father. He left Heaven in disgust and came to earth where he hid his angelic side to live amidst humans and even loved a human. It has been a few months since his beloved wife died and the grieving Remy Chandler, as he calls himself, finally returns to the life of a twenty-first century Boston private investigator.

Alfred Karnighan hires Remy to find some ancient weapons; artifacts stolen from his collection, which is secured by a thick steal door in his basement. The Fallen want the weapons as does the Nomads, angels allegedly inspired by Remy who left Paradise after he did. They are neutrals who come and go between heaven, hell and earth have a grand plan to use these weapons. To prevent a second tragic war, Remy casts off his human cloak returning to the warrior archangel Remiel goes along with a Fallen and a Repentant angel hoping to go home one day if forgiven, into hell.

The allegorical title referring to medieval philosophy aside, DANCING ON THE HEAD OF A PIN is a powerful urban fantasy starring a hero who knows heaven¿s occupants were changed by the war; so he wants no part of the new heaven (see A KISS BEFORE THE APOCALYPSE). Still when it matters, Remiel¿s gut loyalty to the Creator leads him to defend heaven as he loathes the Fallen especially Lucifer whom he holds culpable for Paradise Lost. Readers will feel for Remy and pray he finds redemption and happiness amidst the humans he admires.

I really like the books in this series and I'll continue reading and enjoying them. Not too much heavy drama and not too much corny fluff, I felt "Dancing" was a well written and fun book. I do highly recommend and urge you to read it. Actually, I urge you to read the whole series! I started the series out of order (#3) and it was not really a problem. Have fun.

Dancing on the Head of a Pin is thrilling, suspenseful, funny and exciting. It keeps a fast pace that made me want to shut myself in so that I could finish the story. It has many twists and turns and is unpredictable. Remy is a character that I just adore, he is strong, funny, sensitive and powerful. I love the variety of characters and the setting. This story takes place in Boston and the surrounding cities. I really enjoy picturing those places while submerging myself into the story. Another must read by Sniegoski.
