I confess, we have one of those. Um .... well, maybe more than one

One Fell Sweep:
Dina wants to find out what happened to her parents. Her sister & brother are off planet but now her sister comes into the picture. It‘s the third book and it‘s nice to see some of her family, finally.

humouress I love Arland. He‘s so serious that he‘s hilarious. 2y
humouress Thoroughly loving this one. It may be because I‘m up reading into the early hours (and not quite so early) but it‘s made me laugh so many times. I‘ve highlighted too many quotes to copy out all of them. 2y

If you like both SF and UF, this is the pandemic binge read you‘ve been waiting for. Andrews gives UF staples like witches, werewolves, and vampires SFnal antecedents, complete with intergalactic conflicts and aliens galore—all centred on small-town Texas. It‘s very cool and very fun.

It‘s also an awesome showcase for Andrews‘s ability to escalate internal and external conflict. Each of these books was originally serialized, ⬇️

xicanti and Andrews delivers on the multi-climax model all the best serials utilize. There‘s always something exciting going on, whether it‘s a new innkeeping challenge or a relatively quieter moment where Dina considers her personal goals. I ate it all up.

Especially since the characters are great. They bounce off each other well, they‘ve got compelling stakes in each narrative arc, and their personalities both drive and adapt to each situation ⬇️

xicanti the authors throw at them. I can‘t wait to hang out with them again in Books 4 & 5.

Unfortunately, the fancy special edition my ARC supports is sold out at the publisher, but there are still copies kicking around on Amazon and used sites. And the authors have kindly released the digital omnibus at a reduced price to help everyone cope with quarantine. They sure helped me.

I finished an amazing book this morning, bounced off a not-bad-but-not-gripping novella this afternoon, and figured I‘d finally get back to this Ilona Andrews series this evening. I‘m in the right mood for SF in UF drag.

If you are, too, the first omnibus is on sale right now. I‘ve had a review copy for an embarrassingly long time and in April, I‘m finally gonna do a reread/catch-up of the whole series.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I didn‘t know she had a collection out... I think I have the last 2 to read yet. 3y
xicanti @Riveted_Reader_Melissa this one‘s only got the first three books in it. Still, it‘s a great price even if you‘ve already read two out of three! 3y
HeyT I love the Kate Daniels books but I think The Innkeeper Chronicles are my favorite series by them. 3y
wen4blu I just finished book 7 in the Kate Daniels series. I‘m determined to read the whole thing! 3y

Wow. Wow. Wow. Ilona Andrews I love this chronicle. I love I didn't know that mixing scifi elements to urban fantasy would be my thing but it totally is.

Highly recommend! I'll probably do a proper review post for this chronicle.

Late, yes, but since I went to sleep at 9:30 last night, I‘m giving myself a pass ? #friyayintro

1. http://innkeeper.ilona-andrews.com/category/maud/ Andrews just started her/their next serial on her website - the prequels have been a lot of fun, check it out!
2. I've been focused on the mantra "don't screw up Ready Player One" and totally forgot about Wrinkle in Time until this prompt!
3. Mostly beer. Mostly.
4. Deal breaker
5. Done and done!

bentchbites Omg ilona andrews!!! And cheers 🍻! 5y
CrowCAH Yay another person who it is a deal breaker for no reading/liking the books! 5y
Linear I recently discovered "ready player one" is a book. And today, when looking up movoes due in 2018 to answer this, i found out its already being made into a movie... i dont know how i feel about that 5y
Larkken @bentchbites 🍻😊 @CrowCAH I know, I'm beginning to feel bad with everyone posting how tolerant they are... But I spend too much time in my own mind to connect to someone else who doesn't read! @Linear it's worrisome, the track record for doing justice to my fav books is not fantastic! 5y
Eggs @Larkken Dealbreaker: I agree, as in how quickly you will exhaust discussion topics😮💕 5y

The husband and wife duo Ilona Andrews can do no wrong. The Innkeeper Chronicles Vol. 1 features the first three novels in the series. This is an action packed ride featuring vampires, werewolves, and other strange creatures.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Love their writing! 6y

4 ⭐️This was my first Ilona Andrews read, and all I can say is I NEED MOAR! I read this as an omnibus galley (it contained all 3 books in the series out) and it was just so super fun. It's a bit more Urban Science Fiction than Urban Fantasy (which is a thing I didn't know I wanted but I DO) and follows Dina Demille, Innkeeper of the Gertrude Hunt, a sort of galactic B&B. There are assassins, space vampires, magic dogs, cranky alien chefs. So good.

Chessa Heads up, the omnibus edition is for SERIOUS COLLECTORS in that its list price is $75 (😱😱😱) so if you're interested, try the first few chapters for free on the author's website and then buy the individual books - they're like $4.99 each. 6y
BestOfFates You've sold me, checked out the first of the series from the library! 6y
Jokila Whys the omnibus so expensive? 😱 6y
Chessa @Jokila @Liberty told me that it's because the publisher only does special collector editions of books. They're usually $30ish dollars each, but since this is 3 books in one, it's more. It's for uber-fans, basically! :D 6y
Cobscook I've only read the first in this series, didn't know there were two more. Must read! Thanks! 6y
