I've said it before and I'll say it again: If you like the angelic characters and storylines on the TV show Supernatural*, then you will most certainly like the Remy Chandler novels by Thomas E. Sniegoski as well as his series The Fallen. Both series have new stories releasing this month.
First up is WALKING IN THE MIDST OF FIRE, featuring my favorite sword-wielding PI, Remy Chandler. Here's the cover flap summary:
Remy Chandler, angel private investigator, is trying his damnedest to lead a normal life in a world on the verge of supernatural change. He's found a new love - a woman his dog, Marlowe, approves of - and his best human friend is reluctantly coming to grips with how...unusual...Remy's actions can be. And he's finally reached a kind of peace between his true angelic nature and the human persona he created for himself so very long ago.
But that peace can't last - Heaven and the Legions of the Fallen still stand on the brink of war. Then one of Heaven's greatest generals is murdered, and it falls to Remy to discover who - or what - might be responsible for the death, which could trigger the final conflict...a conflict in which Earth will most certainly be the beachhead.
The deeper he digs, the further he goes into a dark world of demonic assassins, secret brothels, and things that are unsettling even to a being who has lived since time began. But it is not in his nature - angelic or human - to stop until he has found the killer, no matter the personal price...
* If Remy Chandler and Castiel from Supernatural ever crossed paths, it would be pretty awesome. Can you imagine what that episode or book would be like? I wonder what Castiel would make of Remy's dog, Marlowe...
Walking in the Midst of Fire is the sixth book Sniegoski has written about Remy. Here's the order of the series:
Remy also appears in the short story Noah's Orphans, which is included in the Mean Streets anthology.
