CORINA’S REVIEW

 

One Fell Sweep was AMAZING!!!

It was the third novel in the Innkeeper Chronicles.

I should know by now that Ilona Andrews does NOT disappoint. Even so book 1 and 2 were slow in build up, Ilona Andrew books always get BETTER with each additional book. One Fell Sweep was the best example.

I felt a bid like the Inn. The more guests aka characters were introduced the happier I felt.

One Fell Sweep had an amazing cast of characters, old and new. Family, friends, and allies all converged at Gertrude Hunt, the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas.

Dina Demille, the Innkeeper, hosted another big, important and dangerous gathering at the bed and breakfast. This time to help out a species that was on the verge of being annihilated. Her Inn was neutral ground for that occasion nevertheless every second of the gathering she and the Inn were under heavy attack by enemy forces.

For the Hiru, the species that asked for help, it was a matter of life or death. Only a thousand individuals left of their species, they had to find a new planet far away from their enemies to survive. To get the name of that specific planet they had to assemble a greater being, the Archivarius, out of NINE parts. Not only did Dina have to retrieve all nine parts under the most difficult of circumstances she also had to handle the arrival of multiple new guests at the same time. Friends, foes and one overly curious local policeman.

No rest for Dina.

Dina was a joy. Her kind-hearted and caring persona was the heart of this group of people. Her continuously need to take care of her guest and her friends was always on the forefront of any decisions she took. She had such a nurturing soul. But on occasions her kick-ass personality took the reign and blew my mind. Her unlimited power within the Inn’s limits was astounding and thrilling.

I really missed Sean, Dina’s werwolf “boyfriend”, in book 2. Sean is such an amazing guy. Loved his quiet presence but also his protectiveness in regards to Dina. He suffered greatly in book 2, and I was very happy to see him getting better, finding his groove, and feeling at home wherever Dina was. He was Dina’s rock. Silent, strong, and loyal. The perfect guy to hold on to.

I loved Arland, Vampire Lord of the House Krahr. He was a riot in a very understated way. Arrogant and self-assured, he finally found his match in a very surprising newcomer. And it was BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I was smiling the entire time. I pretty much smiled non-stop the last 50% of the book, but Arland made me happy.

The chef Orro, turned out to be a wonderful addition to the cast. In book 2 I didn’t give him the attention that he deserved. I loved his character. He had such a typical personality for a chef. Temperamental, dramatic, and very prickly. He was very entertaining. His unique qualities and quirky personality added to the enrichment of the book.

Another character I loved was Officer Marais. He was like an annoying gnat in the first two books, but   lo and behold he turned out to be a wonderful addition. I wasn’t sure what to think of him since the very first time he knocked on the door. But his tenacity and upstanding nature, surprised the heck out of me – in a most positive way.

And the rest of the cast was just icing on the cake. I loved every page of this book.

But the highlight of this book was and always will be Gertrude Hunt, the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas. The sheer unlimited possibilities were mind boggling. Gertrude Hunt was a masterpiece. Created by leaving physics and what was possible behind. I would have loved living in such a house. A place where space was created and changed whenever the mood struck. Dimensions played with and added on, area expanded where no space was before. The pantry was a chef’s dream. And the guest rooms a source of constant fascination.

I can only say THANK YOU to the authors for having the imagination to create such a vibrant and enthralling world.

Magic Triumphs – Ilona Andrews

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!

They have co-authored several NYT and USAT bestselling series. They are currently working on urban fantasy of Kate Daniels, the paranormal romance of Hidden Legacy, and thjeir independently published series, Innkeeper Chronicles.

  1. I loved the first book, Clean Sweep, so much! I’m not sure why I didn’t continue with the series! Maybe I’ll read book 2 and 3 and do another Duo review soon. I’d love to keep going.

    1. It always happens with their books that it takes me a few books to really get into it. But then I’m HOOKED. I reread Kate Daniels every year, starting with book 1. And the third book in the Innkeeper Chronicles is the best of the best.:-)
