A HUNDRED WORDS FOR HATE

Image of A Hundred Words for Hate: A Remy Chandler Novel

The fourth installment of the Remy Chandler series finds the angel torn between an old love and a potential new one, a metaphor for the constant internal struggle between his human and seraphim selves and a jumping-off point for a complex plot that is heartbreaking and thrilling. The first quarter of the novel is necessarily a bit jumpy as Sniegoski lays down multiple plotlines, but once the various threads are woven together, the reader is treated to a compelling tale of greed and redemption.

Private investigator Remy Chandler, the human guise of the seraphim Remiel, is approached by representatives of the Sons of Adam for help. They’re looking for the key to the Garden of Eden, so that they may fulfill their dying father’s wish to be buried in paradise. Remy agrees, only to find himself facing an old foe who is also searching for the key so that he may reignite the battle for heaven, a plan that requires him to retrieve something he left behind in the garden.
