An amusement park is the perfect place to lose yourself in fantasy and reject reality and also, it seems, at least one park is the perfect place to imprison demons. Mab, a restorer of amusement park paraphernalia, accidentally releases one of the demons during her restoration work. From then on, it is indeed a wild ride as more details are made known, and as mysteries so often put it, the plot thickens. A well crafted story with likable characters, well, except for some of the really bad demons, this paranormal tale is highly entertaining, with enough terror and excitement to keep you turning pages but not so much as to rob you of sleep.

The beginning didn't really draw me in, but I enjoyed another book by the same duo so I stuck with it....overall, had lots of fun reading it. :) ( )

A quick, fun read about an amusement park inhabited by demons. The owners of the park are actually the demon hunters who work together to keep the demons locked up and keep the park safe. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed the story. It wasn't hard to figure out what was going to happen, but then I don't think that was the point. The romance was a little thin - but I found that refreshingly realistic. ( )

Book description
(Copied from Amazon.com's Product Description):

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.
