As an Angel, Remy possesses powers and skills only to be used if the situation calls for it. And the sudden reappearance of the Garden of Eden is just such a situation. Two opposing forces of immortals want the Key to the Gates of Eden, so Remy must turn for help to a fallen angel who is sometimes friend, sometimes foe-and always deadly.

Angel lovers beware. You should avoid this book. You will probably end up addicted to angel books after reading it. (Like I need more literary addictions!) As you can tell, I really enjoyed this.

Reviewed for Bitten by Books:

A nice modern myth, in a way. Personally, I'd rather read a noir mystery about Remy and his side-kick Marlowe, but that obviously isn't really what the author has in mind for the series, it's more about variations on angles gone wrong. I just find it a bit depressing, because in this mythology pretty much all of the angels are either mindless Heavenly warriors, some form of fallen angel, or Remy. But he has a lot of fun ideas, and writes them very well, as always. It's just a matter of mood for ...more
I'm growing increasingly disappointed in the Remy Chandler books. I love, love, love the concept of an angel who willingly leaves Heaven after The War is over, choosing to walk among humans and behave as one, who then gets pulled back into all manner of battles that are epically Biblical in nature. I love Remy/Remiel's divided nature (Seraphim vs. Human personalities). I love the basic concepts Sniegoski comes up with to fill Remy's life with adventure: the return of the Four Horsemen, the real ...more

A Hundred Words For Hate picks up the pace where the first three Remy Chandler novels left off, and shifts it into high gear, taking all of the good and fantastic elements of the previous installments and multiplying them exponentially. Remy's development as a character, as a Seraphim—as a human—is wonderful to witness. The psychological struggles he faces are many, but he emerges the stronger. Supporting characters are also developed in ways not seen before, adding depth, personality, and life ...more

First, let me state that I am a huge fan of this series. Normally I am turned off by books about angels, as they are either of the extremely evil variety, or so holy they do not belong on this plane of existence. However, the angels as depicted in this series are aware of their failings and, for the most part, are likable people. There are a few that often turn out to be bad, either from the beginning rebellion of the Lightbringer (another term for Satan) or through the long eons since have drif ...more

This is the fourth book in the Remy Chandler series. It was a wonderful addition to the series and dealt a lot more with Remy's angelic nature than previous books in the series have.

Remy is called to investigate something by the Sons of Adam; these are the actual descendants of Adam who have a facility where they keep Adam's body alive. The Sons of Adam want Remy to find the Key to the Garden of Eden so that when Adam passes he can be laid to rest there. There is also a Guardian of Eden that is

A Hundred Words for Hate is the fourth book in the Remy Chandler series by Thomas E. Sniegoski. Remy is part angel (Seraphim Remiel), and part human who works as a private investigator out of Boston, Mass. Remiel long ago turned his back on Heaven to live among humans. Remy has had some recent difficulties with remaining human, and not allowing his Angel side to take over completely.

It all started after his one true love of his life, Madeline, died after being together for 40 years. It has been
I could barely finish the book and I think this is the last one I'll read in the series. The plot itself wasn't half bad, but I didn't like the execution. There were, like, ten plotline threads, cut together in an almost staccato rhythm. Sometimes the scenes were only half a page long, set in the present time or in the past, on Earth, in Hell or who-knows-where. In end result, the book felt fractured and all over the place. Also, I was getting slightly fed up with Remy's "woe is me, I'm a Seraph ...more
I love this series. If you have not read the Remy Chandler novels by Thomas Sniegoski, then you are in for a treat. They are dark and gritty detective tales with a difference: the detective, Remy Chandler, is a Seraphim, a warrior angel who left heaven in search of his own humanity. Remy's angelic nature (and his wings!) are firmly held in check, until occasionally required - generally in battle. One delightful side benefit of an angelic nature is that Remy can speak every language on earth, inc ...more

Much anticipated, and it did not fail to deliver. Feels very much like it should have been the 3rd, rather than the 4th, book of the series, given that the 3rd book didn't really touch on the Big Story going on. Greatly enjoyed it, and look forward to the next chapter of Remy Chandler's life.

The worst thing about this book was that it was predictable! From the very beginning I had the entire story figured out.
This reminded me a lot of Dresden and the Nightside books, only not quite as dark and disturbing. I had a little trouble with the pacing at the end because it felt like you were at the climax of the action and it kept getting interrupted by character histories and backgrounds. There were some good background characters in this, it just wasn't a take on angels that I particular

Excellent way to bring a new love interest in: not a perfect, model who lights up a room and has all the men falling at her feet but a normal, very human woman with her own awkward moments.

Too much telling but the dying angel is interesting. I don't understand how Adam is still alive and Eve is dead.

There are no women in this so far except the potential girlfriend and the dead wife who is just his imagination and the elderly hoarder with Alzheimer's. It was noted that the sons of xxx had a fal

Adam, the first man, is breathing his last, even his extremely long life is coming to an end and he has one dying wish – to be buried in the garden of Eden, a wish that his descendants, the Sons of Adam, wish to make real, even if they have to consume the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge itself to bring Eden back to Earth

Unfortunately he’s not the only one who has designs on the garden. Before Eden was sealed, Lucifer sought to use the garden as a beachhead from which he could invade Heaven – prev

Fourth in the angelic urban fantasy series, Remy Chandler, based in contemporary Boston.

My Take
Sniegoski gives us a different perspective on the battle between God and Lucifer as well as the angels' feelings towards humans, those monkeys God loves so much. Although this particular story has a different focus, Sniegoski still demonstrates how "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely"…a strong counterpoint to Remy's exploration of being human versus his angelic self's determination t

Least favorite and will probably my last of the series, no matter whether the series is continued or not. I think I have already felt that during the third book, how the series went to a direction that didn't interest me. However, in the third book, the multiple views were still able to grab my intention somehow.

This time, it's not. I don't like the execution of the plot -- the multiple views are from people I don't really care about and I wonder why they take away the focus from Remy (

The Seraphim known as Remiel now lives as Remy Chandler, a private investigator in Boston. He’s received a summons to visit the Sons of Adam who have taken care of Adam (yes, THE Adam) for millennia. He’s dying now and longs to see Eden again. In a bid to save itself, the Garden of Eden is returning once again to Earth and there are many parties interested in either opening the Gates or keeping them shut forever.

Remy must discover the Key to the Gates, which is more complicated that he’d thought

RE-READ REVIEW (OCTOBER 2013): 3 stars

The next installment of the Remyverse focuses back on the angelic and the human -- in particular, on the Garden of Eden, what happened there, and where Eve, Adam, and the Garden have been ever since ... and how Someone Powerful has plans for all three which do not bode well for Creation.

It's all interesting enough, but the PoV is so often off of Remy himself and on various other characters. That's a shame, because the Remy parts are some of the most interest

This one surprised me, there wasn't a lot of Remy in it, instead it all went back to Adam and Eve, literally. I liked how the author shaped the history of them in this book, but I hated how the sons and daughters were enemies, instead of working together to achieve forgiveness.

I loved that a favorite character was brought back and that we got to know more about his past. I do worry about the deal that he made with the Morningstar to come back.

I was surprised by the sacrifice that Jon and Izzy

Another really cool adventure with Remy (Remiel) Chandler! This book centers around what would happen if the Garden of Eden had come back to the World, and the "First Man," Adam. Centered around the "Sons of Adam, Daughters of Eve" (a nod, IMO, to "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" series by C.S. Lewis) and the rift between them as the progenitors of the Fall of Man and the Expulsion from the Garden. But what if it came back? This is a great read, with just a 'teensy' little drzg, but awesom ...more

It’s a fantastic book, another winner, and I never get sick of Remy and his cases, because he has stuff that’s personal to him. He’s not just solving random cases that have nothing to do with him personally but he does them just because he’s the good guy and that’s what good guys are supposed to do. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you haven’t already picked up one of the Remy Chandler books, you don’t know what you’re missing out on.

I like the character of Remy Chandler. The absolute best part of these books is his relationship with Marlowe, his dog. Remy will always do the right thing, and in his ballpark of life, he gets a lot of opportunities.

Saving the world seems to be an ongoing task for the protagonist. Whether battling demon-like Shaiten or facing angels gone bad, he always gives it his all.

In this latest book, Remy finally comes to terms with both his angelic and human nature; he finally moves on past the death of

All the Remy Chandler novels build upon one another, strengthening the story; yet there is in this novel a sense of change being inevitable, it is coming, as surely as Eden is.

I do not though know where the story is going, so I have the feeling it should be continued, and I'll wait for it to be written (in what I hope is the right and proper way, no hurry, but with surety; what will be, will be) and read it when it's published, but I disliked that this book seemed to have a lot of loose strings

More multiple points of view, and based on Adam and Eve and Eden. Interesting plot, with the attempted takeover of a bad angel and Shaitan demon(s).

One of the ironies was the Sons of Adam apparently torched Eve back in the 1600's figuring that God would forgive Adam for the original sin. Funny how the guys aren't volunteering to burn their own alive!

Anyways, it came back a bit to the Apocalypse thread running through the books, and while jerky in places was rather good.

Mar 28, 2011 Dale rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Sneigoski's cosmology is primarily Judeo-Christian, with an emphasis on the Judeo side. This book delved deeply into the theme of redemption, but made no mention whatsoever of Christ despite having the plot of the book revolve around The Fall. That's not a negative critque, just a statement. There was a couple jabs at doctrine that seemed a bit out of place, but those aside this was an excellent installment in the series.
