Maud Demille is a daughter of Innkeepers—a special group who provide 'lodging' to other-planetary visitors—so she knows that a simple life isn't in the cards. But even Maud could never have anticipated what Fate would throw at her.

Once a wife to a powerful vampire knight, Maud and her young daughter, Helen, were exiled with him for his treachery to the desolate, savage planet of Karhari. Karhari killed her husband, and Maud—completely abandoned by his family—has spent over a year avenging his debts. Rescued by her sister Dina, she's sworn off all things vampire.

Except... In helping Dina save the world, she met Arland, the Marshal of House Krahr, one of the most powerful vampire houses. One thing led to another and he asked for her hand in marriage. She declined. Arland is not used to hearing the word 'no;' and try as she might, Maud can't just walk away from Arland. It doesn't help that being human is a lot harder for Maud than being a vampire.

To sort it all out, she accepts his invitation to visit his home planet. House Krahr is extremely influential and Maud knows that a woman—a human, with a very questionable past—who's turned down a proposal from its most beloved son won't get a warm reception. Maybe she's not sure about marrying Arland, but House Krahr isn't going to decide for her. Maud Demille has never run from a fight, and House Krahr will soon discover that there's a lot more to Maud than they're expecting.

All the feels. I read this as it was serialised but I can assure you this feels completely different. A glorious romance between a kick-ass (mostly) human single mom (and her half-human, half-vampire five year old daughter) and the Marshal of one of the most powerful space-faring vampire clans complete with intrigue, politics, battles and aliens. Loved it just as much as the first time, I have no words, Maud and Arland forever.

As always, a great read from a very talented duo. Would love to see the innkkeeper series at the movies. Maybe Peter Jackson as director, as he is very good at keeping an author's storyline intact. Looking forward to the next installment.

I am, and have been, a huge fan of Ilona Andrews. Their stories draw you in and make you want to be a part of them. This latest installment of the Innkeeper series is a masterpiece of writing! You root for the good guys and can’t wait for the bad guys to get what’s coming to them. The whole time falling in love with the characters and the depth of world building that the authors create. I just hate having to wait for the next book in the series.

I've read everything by Andrews and this is outstanding, as usual. The Innkeepers series is a interesting twist on the usual sci-fi tropes. They have a dash of fantasy and a sprinkling of romance. Nicely done.
