Review

PRAISE FOR IN THE HOUSE OF THE WICKED

"Remy and his human friends are engagingly be viable characters in a series noted for flashes of humor despite its overall serious tone. Series fans and followers of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files will enjoy this urban fantasy"--Library Journal

"A fun book...a thought-provoking book."--Innsmouth Free Press

"Sniegoski ups his game in this most recent Remy adventure, and we begin to see some of the grand scheme he is setting up for us. The conflict and situations within this novel are refreshingly personal, bringing the forefront of activity back to the Boston area. The characters are varied and very well-developed, bringing life and humanity into this novel largely centered around the angelic pantheon. With In the House of the Wicked, Sniegoski has crafted a very powerful, very personal tale that is equal parts gut-wrenching, heart-warming, and awe-inspiring."--The Ranting Dragon

"An excellent read and part of an excellent series that gets better and better."--Fangs for the Fantasy

"Powerful...exciting...a terrific fantasy that will thrill readers."--Genre Go Round Reviews
