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!!


Last year, I decided that mini-reviews were the way forward for this particular book blogger. 😉 This means that I only write full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organisers (ARCs). When I read a book that I’ve bought for myself, I share my thoughts within a paragraph or two that I publish on Amazon UK, Goodreads and here on my blog.

I first read One Fell Sweep back in May 2019 but didn’t post my review here, that’s changing today …

Another Gripping Action Packed Adventure

I have already read the first two books in this urban fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal romance series and really enjoyed them; this book lived up to my expectations.

I downloaded the narration of this book to listen along as I read my Kindle, which has become my favourite way of immersing myself into a story. Renee Raudman is a great performer; I loved the pace at which she read this book, the variances she used during different fight, emotional tense scenes and the tonal adjustments she made to give each character their own voice.

Although I love urban fantasy, science fiction is not a genre I usually choose but this series has me hooked. I love the writing style, the intelligence, the complexity of personality of the characters and the plot has me desperately reading, turning the pages to find out what will happen next.

There is a hook at the end of this book about the series running mystery of where Dina’s parents are, but it’s not life or death. Woop!

Keep reading to find out more about Ilona Andrews and this series.

The Innkeeper Chronicles

Dina DeMille doesn’t run your typical Bed and Breakfast. Her inn is a living entity that defies laws of physics, her fluffy dog is secretly a monster, and the only paying guest is a former Galactic tyrant with a price on her head. This series is a blend of genres: urban fantasy and science fiction.

  2. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the first three Innkeeper books. I have a taste for SF romance and enjoyed the authors take on paranormal creatures and the melding of magic and tech.
