This series was originally published as a free web serial, and it does read that way with a great deal of exposition and the occasional plot hole. But it is fun, there are space vampires, a sentient magical inn, and an innkeeper who loves her job, her apple trees, and her missing parents. ( )

Sweep in Peace picks up 6 months after the events of Clean Sweep and life has returned to normal for Dina....but not for long ;) Her Inn is set to host the volatile peace talks between three warring species. Her livelihood hinges on the outcome and she ends up being pushed into a precarious position to protect her guests.

This book features 4 characters as adults who were kids in The Edge series. It isn't necessary to read The Edge books before this one but you should anyway cause those books are great!

Andrews manage to blend urban fantasy and science fiction so well with this series. Magic and technology don't usually go together but it's something they make work. Here they've blended the two genres without ever having one take over or feel out of place.

The story doesn't follow the Whodunit style that's very often in urban fantasy books. Instead, we're following the peace talks and the very tricksy Arbitrator wreak havoc in Dina's Inn. It made for much more interesting reading within my favourite genre and I gobbled it up! ( )

Excellent entry in the innkeeper series. It was very hard to put down when I started to read it. Lots of suspense and action. Fun characters. There was even an entry from The Edge books, George Camarine. I will read any future books in this series for sure. I have become a serious Ilona Andrews fan. ( )

Sweep in Peace
4 Stars
Series note: While this is book #2 in the Innkeeper Chronicles, several characters from The Edge series feature prominently.

In this installment, Dina Demille, the Innkeeper, is approached by a representative of the galactic arbitrators to host a peace summit between three waring factions. Each of the three species has its own reasons for seeking the peace accords, but finding common ground proves elusive.

While the twists and turns of the story are compelling enough, and there are some emotional as well as hilarious moments, Sweep in Peace fails to truly resonate. This may be due to my general dislike of Science-Fiction, but it is more than likely the result of two main problems. First, both the world building and the events of the previous books are unnecessarily rehashed, and second, there is virtually no character development for any of the protagonists. This is unfortunate as they are all very intriguing and there is definitely room for growth here, especially with regard to Dina and Sean's relationship, which is neglected throughout.

Despite these issues, Sweep in Peace is very well-written, and Gordon and Ilona Andrews know how to create interesting characters, compelling storylines and action packed scenarios. Hopefully the next installments will build on the solid foundation that has been established so far. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Dina DeMille isn't your typical Bed and Breakfast owner. Her inn defies laws of physics, her dog is secretly a monster, and the only permanent guest of the inn is a former Galactic tyrant with a price on her head. 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, bridging the gap between space vampires, the Hope Crushing Horde, and the merchants of Baha-char is much easier said than done. To make the summit a success, she must find a chef, remodel the inn, keep her guests from murdering each other, 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.… (more)
