Where Angels Fear to Tread by Thomas Sniegoski

Book 3 of Remy Chandler Series

Remy gets a strange client, a woman who's daughter has been abducted by her father.
However, the little girl draws pictures, of the future and Remy is there, with his dog Marlowe and with his wings.
Intrigued he goes in search of the little girl. And learns he's not the only one that wants her. Delilah also seeks the little girl because a small part of the creation of life is hiding within her body.  Delihah was cursed by God to outlive all she loved, and she's lived since her betrayal of Samson.
Remy also finds Samson still roaming the earth and his children, because the only thing he lives for is the end of Delihah.  And if that wasn’t enough, a lessor God - Dagon - also gets a taste of the Power that resides within this little girl.
Remy is up against a God, and powerful human's cursed by his God.  So there is plenty of fighting in this book. I liked Delihah's power to drive human's to do her bidding, even to death.  She eats the souls of the living and creates a few macarbe scenes.  Not quite as interesting as earlier books, but still a good read. Remy is still a favourite character though, and I hope to see him move on from his grieving in future books

Rating 3.5 / 5

Fair Game by Patricia Briggs

Book 3 of Alpha and Omega

Charles is having problems with the jobs his Father, the Marrock is sending him to do.  These jobs tend to end up with a dead werewolf and their spirits are haunting Charles.  To protect his mate, Anna, he has closed down the bond between them and retreating from everyone. The Marrock is asked for help by human cops in regards to numerous killings spanning a few years and the most recent being werewolf kills.  He decides to send Charles and Anna, hoping that this job to be a protector will help. Charles and Anna work with the FBI to try and catch the group of killers, they learn that one is Fae and that most of the victims were also Fae.  But Charle's state of mind compromises Anna's safety and her life is put in danger when the murderers turn their attention to her.  The history and ways of the Fae are touched on, which was quite interesting. I didn't get a sense of who the killing group were until near the end and then the story was concluded a little quickly.  Not as much action and a little slow plotted storyline this time.  Though I still enjoyed the relationship between Charles and Anna and that kept my attention

Rated 3/5
