Innkeeper Chronicles #2
Dina DeMille doesn’t run your typical Bed and Breakfast. Her inn 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. But the inn needs guests to thrive, and guests have been scarce, so when an Arbitrator shows up at Dina's door and asks her to host a peace summit between three warring species, she jumps on the chance.
Unfortunately, for Dina, keeping the peace between Space Vampires, the Hope-Crushing Horde, and the devious Merchants of Baha-char is much easier said than done. On top of keeping her guests from murdering each other, she must find a chef, remodel the inn...and risk everything, even her life, to save the man she might fall in love with. But then it's all in the day's work for an Innkeeper… “Andrews is an auto-buy no matter what the genre!” —Romantic Times
“If there is one author that defines Urban Fantasy, it is Ilona Andrews.” —Annie Tegelan, Fresh Fiction
"One of the brightest voices in urban fantasy and one of my favorite authors. Ilona Andrews delivers only the best." —New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner! Beware spoilers ahead! Trigger warning: Death and mention of war. After finishing Clean Sweep I was excited awaiting my turn in my library. Sweep in Peace had a lot of expectations to meet. I am happy to report that I enjoyed it!  Sweep in Peace begins with a prologue from a new characters point of view. Said character has just murdered somebody due to personal reason. The unknown character is confronted by Klaus (Dina's brother) and offered a job. The character's name is revealed to be George. George accepts Klaus's job offer. Life has become boring for Dina. There's no Sean or Arland, and just nothing to do. Caldenia mentions as much and suggests Dina should do some better advertising. Much to Dina's surprise an Artibrator whose name is George asks for her help. George needs an inn to host a peace summit. Dina is a bit reluctant at first as it will be quite difficult to maintain all the parties of the guests arriving. However she agrees once she sees the amount of money she'll earn. Dina does not anticipate just how taxing this peace summit or George can be. I enjoyed reading Sweep in Peace! The story follows Dina's point of view in first person. There are pictures throughout the book. The book opens with a prologue in third person following George. New characters are introduced. As the new characters were introduced the world building was expanded upon. I really enjoyed reading about the situation on Nexus and how it affected the vampires, the Hope-Crushing-Horde, and the Merchant Clan. I was surprisingly interested in all the politics. I usually don't care for politics. So this was a nice change. There was an emphasis on understanding everyone's side in the story and realizing that everyone has emotions. Which I appreciated and thought it was really important. Considering the different sides of the war. As usual Dina was fantastic! She really does get better every time I read about her. Of course Caldenia played a vital part in the story. I'm also really surprised that Caldenia is treated very well for a criminal. All the new characters respect her and when speaking refer to her title. Orro and Dina's cat were my favourite new additions! Orro is a former chef that Dina hires to cook for the peace summit. The descriptions of the food he made was fantastic! It can really get you hungry. Orro himself is quite the character. Very dramatic but truly cares for people and what others think off him. The cat was a bit of surprise to Dina as well. I enjoyed reading about their interactions. Sean does come in but much later on. And there was a plot twist regarding his appearance. He goes through quite a few changes in this book. It did hurt but it also made for good character development. George, Jack, Gaston, and Sophie are some of the new characters. They play a major role in the book. George was extremely intelligent and manipulated a lot of the situations that occur. His role as an artibrator allowed him to get away with most things. Of course it came to a point where Dina stopped taking his nonsense. The Sci-Fi elements are expanded upon as George is from another Earth. I did have some issues. I thought that because Klaus was introduced in the prologue that he would make an appearance. That didn't happen. It almost felt like the prologue was written for the purpose of enticing the reader, but the information was never expanded upon. The mind games that all the guests (mostly George) partake in became very frustrating. When it all came together it made sense, but that didn't really help. Overall I enjoyed Sweep in Peace! I highly recommend the series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful and Witty I loved the gag at end! It genuinely had me laughing out loud to the point where I had to explain the joke to my partner. This novel was very entertaining. I haven't read a sci-fi with so little focus on romance, but an amazing focus on world building in quite awhile. Well done! This makes me think perhaps I should give the Kate Daniels series another chance...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong continuation to the series! Once again, I was very happy with the latest addition to the Innkeeper series. Dina continues to be a strong, smart and savvy character who works her damnedest to give her inn the guests it needs, protect her guests and protect the anonymity of their community. This book delves deeper into the politics and dramas on Dina's world, and I especially loved the enigma of George, an Arbitrator who approaches Dina to use her inn to house a three-way civil war. Like the first of the series, I wish this was released in paperback and that the story was longer!
