Overview

From the NYT #1 bestselling author, Ilona Andrews, comes a new tale from the Innkeeper Chronicles

"Ilona Andrews's books are guaranteed good reads."--Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fire Touched

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!

Meet the Author

Ilona Andrews” is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)
Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.
They have co-authored several New York Times and USA Today bestselling series. They are currently working on urban fantasy of Kate Daniels, the paranormal romance of Hidden Legacy, and their independently published series, Innkeeper Chronicles.

Great storyline, all the elements of an exciting story as well as the hook at the end to keep you anxiously awaiting the next installment in the series.

Ilona can please stop giving her work away on her website to people who write spoilers...? This author is seasoned and everything with her name on it is a keeper. The Innkeeper series is my absolute favorite now, new installments have my "first read attention", and I am considering turning my toddler after meeting Helen. Enough Glory except to ask when can we expect the next book?

The story never lagged. It caught my attention quickly and held it. I like the way they are evolving some of the regular characters. Arland and Sean are much more interesting than in previous books. So as not to spoil, let me just say that I like the potential of Matias being more involved.

I read this online as they published the weekly installments. Rereading it from start to finish was even better. This is such a unique series (like everything Ilona Andrews writes) and such an engrossing detailed world. Loved every minute!

Love this series! Great characters and world building. Here's a thought...the worlds of Kate Daniels and Dina Demille collide. Kate and Curran could use the Innkeepers' help in the coming battle with Roland!

This book was so much fun to read! I look forward to every new Ilona Andrews book that I can get my hands on. I think it is amazing that this book was written as a serial novel and available to read on their website for free. They don't have to do that but they do just because they really are that nice. I didn't read the book as a serial because I know that I am the kind of reader that wants to sit down and read the whole book at once but I think it is awesome that they do this for their readers. This was the kind of book that was really hard to put down and ended up being just as good as I had hoped it would be. Dina is an Innkeeper and has a special kind of magic. Her inn, Gertrude Hunt, is almost a living character as well with its own brand of magic and abilities. Dina's inn serves beings from around the universe which she must remain hidden from residents of Earth. When Dina's sister, Maud, sends a message to be picked up, there is no question about whether she will go. Not only does Dina have her family's welfare to consider in this book, she is also asked to protect a Hiru which may cause her inn to be attacked. There is no shortage of excitement in this story! I actually liked this book a bit more than the previous one in the series and I think that is largely because there was a lot more Sean in this book. I really missed Sean and the last book so I was thrilled to see him featured though out this story. Dina and Sean's relationship really takes off and the chemistry that has always been between them is finally put to good use. I also really enjoyed the new characters in this book. Maud and Helen were both awesome in their own way. Maud has been through a lot but is competent to handle anything that comes her way and proves to be a big help to Dina. Helen was a really interesting character and it was nice to see a child worked into the story so well. I would highly recommend this series to others. This book is highly imaginative with a lot of excitement. There is a wonderful balance of action, humor, and romance to keep readers happy. I would recommend that this series be read in order so that you have the background of the relationships and abilities. I can't wait to read more from this fantastic writing duo!

I love anything that the Ilona Andrews team writes. This series so so good, so different, so well written with a diverse and very original cast of characters. I can't wait for each installment, each is better than the last. A great read.

As usual Ilona doesn't disappoint. This is another awesome series. So many world's so many possibilities. This one and the second one are tied as my favourite. I always hate for an Ilona book to end because I love everything everything¿ she and Gordon write! Thank you guys.

Great book in a really good series. Ilona Andrews is on the very short list of authors that I will read anything they write.

Great book! Love the plotting and pacing and world (s)-building! I'm addicted to all the Innkeeper and truthseeker and Kate Daniels books, also the Kinsmen stories (the Edge books not so much, although compared to other authors' works they're good - it's just that Gordon and Ilona tend to spoil readers for lesser quality reading). A couple of notes to the copy editor: Two verbs, TO LIE and TO LAY. TO LIE is intransitive, which means all the energy stays inside the verb. It goes LIE, LAY, HAD LAIN. I LIE down for a nap every afternoon. I LAY down as usual yesterday. I HAD LAIN down for my nap when I got a visitor. TO LAY is transitive, meaning the energy of the verb has to affect an object. Both verb and object are capitalized in the examples below. This verb goes LAY, LAID, HAD LAID. I LAY my HAND on the controls - right now. I LAID my HEAD down to rest for a few minutes. I HAD LAID my weary BODY down on the bed when the doorbell rang. Also, you need to brush up on the difference between nominative and objective pronouns. "For him and me," not "for he and I." Split up the two if you're not sure. Would you say "for he" or "for I?" Instead of " Martha and him went to the store," ask yourself if you would say "Him went to the store." Clear? Yes, I used to teach English. Having learned it as a second language, I'm obsessed with getting it right, although I make plenty of my own grammatical errors often abetted by overly zealous Spellcheck programs. But authors can be forgiven the odd grammar transgression when their stories are so wildly engrossing!
