Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author, Ilona Andrews, comes a new tale from the Innkeeper Chronicles.

Dina DeMille may run the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, but she caters to a very particular kind of guest...the kind that no one on Earth is supposed to know about. Guests like a former intergalactic tyrant with an impressive bounty on her head, the Lord Marshal of a powerful vampire clan, and a displaced-and-superhot werewolf; so don't stand too close, or you may be collateral damage.

But what passes for Dina's normal life is about to be thrown into chaos. First, she must rescue her long-distant older sister, Maud, who's been exiled with her family to a planet that functions as the most lawless penal colony since Botany Bay. Then she agrees to help a guest whose last chance at saving his civilization could bring death and disaster to all Dina holds dear. Now Gertrude Hunt is under siege by a clan of assassins. To keep her guests safe and to find her missing parents, Dina will risk everything, even if she has to pay the ultimate price. Though Sean may have something to say about that!

Took It Right to the Edge and Kept Me Enthralled

One of these days I'm going to stop settling back in amazed surprise when I read/listen to these authors' books. Seriously! I already thought this was a fantastic series and I was all in, but this latest installment in the Innkeeper Chronicles series just raised the bar even higher.

Dina, her latest group of guests, and Gertrude Hunt Inn are in the fight for their very lives. This was nearly non-stop dangerous excitement and, when it wasn't, it was intense character and relationship development action that left me blinking back tears. Oh, and the cherry on top? We get the alien's take on the human tradition of Christmas- laughed so hard the tears came.

I loved that part of Dina's family finally makes an appearance, more of the favorite side characters, and, Hallelujah, more on Dina's romance with Sean. Dina is really brought to the brink in this one and she continues to grow through each trial put before her.

There are some surprises and heart=stopping twists to this one. It will resonate with readers and real world issues even though, as usual, there are aliens to encounter both good, shades of gray, and deeply flawed.

Oh, and that little bell-ringer sentence at the very end made me groan and prepare myself for a long (im)patient wait to see what that thread will produce. That said, there was such great progress made for other threads (ahem smoldering hot Sean and Dina scenes) and closure for the main conflict that I don't mind.

Renee Raudman is the voice of Dina and the Innkeeper Chronicles Cast of Characters. I have sung her praises through three installments now. But see, she, too, rose to the occasion for the depths of emotions and desperation this book produced and more than met the challenge.

This fantastic blend of Urban Fantasy and Sci-Fi is a treat not to be missed. Do yourself a favor and snag these for your own reading/listening pleasure.

Anothet awesome installment!!!

This is the third installment of the Innkeeper Chronicles, and I loved it as much as the first. Loved the characters from the previous books and the authors have introduced new characters that are just as great.

Action, laughs, a little romance, one of the best Urban Fantasy series out there. A well written story and another great performance by the narrator. You can't go wrong. If you haven't read the first two books I suggest you go back and read them in order, you won't be sorry.

Love this series! Such possibilities!

An open world with fantasy and sci-fi elements disguised as a romance!
Very well written and narrated. I like the cast of characters and the new races we meet in each story.

Sweep yourself away....

Yes, sweep yourself away into Dina's world! I love this story and am completely invested in the characters, their lives and all of the activities that take place at Gertrude Hunt. I laughed, I cried and in awe of how well these authors weaves tales with such detail and imagination. Dina and Sean's relationship grows. Dina gets a message that her sister needs her, and she sweeps away to another world with Sean and Arland. Previous interactions with George creates a dire situation that requires Dina to make a huge decision. The intrigue ensues and everyone is involved. The battle scenes are amazing and the twists and turns keeps you very engaged. An opportunity arises for Dina to find her parents. The cost is great. Does she take it? Get the book and find out for yourself. I am so looking forward to the next story.

I always like Ilona Andrews books

This one picks up nicely after the previous book, Sweep in Peace. I really enjoyed being back in this universe but I felt it wrapped up just a tad too quickly. Maybe I just would've liked another hour or two in the last 1/4 of the book. Could be either/or/both.

All the usual characters are back and we've got a few new faces as well.

I do really like the development with Officer Marace.

Love this series and this book is just as good.

Good book. Great characters, an interesting plot and good world building. A taste of what's to come without a cliff hanger.

Narrator on all her books is the same and she always does a great job.

Reader makes the main character a wimp

This reader makes me very cross. I have read this book and the character is not a wimp but a strong character - I want to listen to the end but it is very annoying listening to the reader change the character

Not what I expected from this author

This is more like a fairy tale for kids, I myself ,found it hard to grasp.And lost interest very quickly when it did not improve. I expected a lot more from this author. Very disappointed.
