and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everythin 99c Kindle sale Dec 20 2019 This is the start of a SFfantasy series by Ilona Andrews that I've really enjoyed A fun light read and easier and uicker to get into than the Kate Daniels series if you're a newbie to Ilona Andrews Review first posted on Fantasy LiteratureDina Demille a young woman runs a uiet bed and breakfast in a small Texas town Her inn is a uirky old Victorian home that looks like “a medieval castle and a Southern belle antebellum mansion had a baby and it had been delivered into the world by a gothic wedding cake decorator” Dina’s only companion is a small black and white not uite ordinary Shih Tzu named Beast aside from her single permanent guest in the inn but Dina is hoping her inn will become popular ― with space aliens The Gertrude Hunt Bed and Breakfast is in fact a house with mysterious powers and a symbiotic relationship to Dina and it secretly caters to otherworldly visitors from all over the galaxy It’s one of many on the planet Earth which is a popular way station for alien travelers The inn’s sole guest is a bloodthirsty former Galactic aristocrat who caused millions of deaths in her former life and who is now using Dina’s inn as a permanent sanctuaryAs an innkeeper Dina is supposed to keep a low profile and stay neutral and safe but when something starts killing the local dog population and threatening humans what’s a conscientious girl with magical powers to do Dina tries suggesting to the local werewolf a buff ex military guy named Sean Evans that he step in and take care of the dog killing alien but when he blows her off she decides she has to get involved to protect her communityAnd somehow it all gets very complicated from there but it involves a semi sentient house a Shih Tzu with unexpected talents and some sexy guys wrapped up in a blend of science fiction and fantasy and liberally spiced with Ilona Andrews’ trademark sarcastic humor Who knew that werewolves and vampires are actually space aliens Clean Sweep the first novel in the INNKEEPER CHRONICLES series is slightly reminiscent of Clifford Simak’s classic work Way Station with its galactic inn setting but takes a urban fantasy approach Ostensibly this a science fiction work but for all practical purposes Dina’s and the inn’s powers are magical No effort is made to explain scientifically the basis for these abilities other than Dina’s citing of Arthur C Clarke’s famous Third Law of Prediction “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”The Ilona Andrews husband and wife team has a certain formula that almost invariably appears in their novels a kickass heroine with extraordinary abilities and a sarcastic attitude a tough and sexy love interest with whom the heroine has an intense but often antagonistic relationship and supernatural life threatening challenges that serve to bring the two together That same formula is used in Clean Sweep but the Andrews team creates such an engaging humorous read that it’s difficult to begrudge their repeated use of the same basic literary recipe And within that familiar framework there is a lot of imagination at play Elements like the magical shape shifting inn Dina’s similarly shape shifting broom which functions at need as a weapon and Beast the talented Shih Tzu are delightful creations And while the story pulls in the standard urban fantasy werewolf and vampire characters both of these races are given a rich back story and history that both fits the science fictional setting and explains some of the legendary traits of those races There’s even a wink to the love triangle trope as Sean the werewolf and Arland the vampire discuss their intentions toward Dina “My intentions are my business” Sean said“Mhm” Arland said “I have spent my spare time studying literature popular with young women of this planet One should always study the battlefield”Sean glanced at him “And”“I suggest you give up now According to my research in a vampire werewolf love triangle the vampire always gets the girl” Clean Sweep isn’t deep but it is a lot of fun I’m anxious to continue Dina’s story in the second volume Sweep in PeaceInitial thoughtsHow does this even happenI've got a backlog of books to read and reviews to write but Jessica linked a chapter from the latest book in this series that's posted on Ilona Andrews' website and then I found the first three chapters of this first book on the series on their website as well and read them and the next thing I knew I had bought the ebook and was deep into it disregarding not only other books to read and reviews to write but also whispers work And after I dragged my reluctant self back to work I finished it up in one day
