Wild Ride

by Jennifer Crusie

St. Martin's Press | August 22, 2013 | Hardcover

Wild Ride is rated 3 out of 5 by 2.

The New York Times bestselling duo of Crusie and Mayer team up again with a hilarious paranormal novel that shows why the wildest ride at the Dreamland Amusement Park isn’t the roller coaster

Mary Alice Brannigan doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Nor does she expect to find that Dreamland, the decaying amusement park she’s been hired to restore, is a prison for the five Untouchables, the most powerful demons in the history of the world. Plus, there’s a guy she’s falling hard for, and there’s something about him that’s not quite right.

But rocky romances and demented demons aren’t the only problems in Dreamland: Mab’s also coping with a crooked politician, a supernatural raven, a secret government agency, an inexperienced sorceress, an unsettling inheritance, and some mind-boggling revelations from her past. As her personal demons wreck her newfound relationship and real demons wreck the park, Mab faces down immortal evil and discovers what everybody who’s ever been to an amusement park knows: The end of the ride is always the wildest

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extremely far-fetched, even for Crusie As usual for a Crusie/Mayer novel, Wild Ride has romance, humour, suspense, and commandos (Mayer's contribution). This time, throw in a special government team investigating anything having to do the unknown, creepy clowns that seemingly come to life, and fortune telling machines that get a little too personal and you have a rather wacky book. Unfortunately, it also falls a little flat, kind of like the kiddie rollercoaster compared to the monster coaster at Six Flags. It ain't no 'Agnes and the Hitman' that's for sure. 2011-052

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hit and miss I think this book could have been alot better if more thought hd been put into it. Collaborations are notorius for being rich with plotholes and conflicting point of views, and this book is no exception. There are alot of plotholes left undone, and the endind was predictable and disappointing. All in all, it's worth a read, but not a purchase.

Read from the Book

1 Mary Alice Brannigan sat on the roof of the Dreamland carousel at twenty minutes to midnight and considered her work in the light from the lamp on her yellow miner’s hat. It was good. FunFun, the redheaded clown sitting cross-legged next to her on the roof’s peak, was fully restored again. Of all the clowns in the park, including the beautiful seven-foot ironclad Fun at the Dreamland entrance, this wooden one was her favorite: exuberantly happy, one yellow-gloved hand pulling back his striped blue-green coat to show off his orange-and-gold-checked waistcoat, the other flung above his head, reaching for the gold panpipes he’d lost long ago. “Don’t worry, baby,” she said to him, patting her work bag between them. “I got your pipes right here.” He grinned crookedly down at her, or at least down toward the ground as a breeze picked up, biting with the chill of the Ohio October night. Mab pulled her canvas painting coat closer around her and looked out over the newly restored jewel box of an amusement park. It had taken her thirty-nine years, but now she was not only in Dreamland, she’d saved it. Once I finish the Fortune-Telling Machine, I will have put this place back the way it was at the very beginning. I will belong here. I rock. And the best part was that she was surveying it all at night with no— “You up there, Mab?” Glenda yelled. —people around to spoil the moment. “Stop what you’r
