In the House of the Wicked

Remy Chandler #5

In the House of the Wicked has a good opening, however I found the changes in point of view to be abrupt and a little confusing. The character of Remy Chandler quickly grew on me because of how protective he was of all his loved ones. The pace of the book was somewhat slow for my liking but this is balanced with plenty of action and suspense to keep the reader engaged. This is the fifth book in the Remy Chandler series and while it could be read as a stand alone novel, I think it would be better to read this book as a part of a series.

Remy Chandler finds himself thrown into a struggle for power by two sorcerers after a close friend of his is kidnapped. He must face outside forces as well as an internal battle for control between his human and angelic halves in order to stop these men from destroying the world.
