Another Visit to the Inn

Back cover art,
Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews
Last year I discovered serials through works by Ilona Andrews and Seanan McGuire. Andrews' Innkeepers had a powerful woman with a kickass broom, werewolves and vamps from space, a thoroughly interesting world and a big bad monster. I had a great time reading it.

Team Andrews is back with a second installment, SWEEP IN PEACE. Again it is a free serial available from their website. New parts are added about every two weeks, with plans to sell the completed story again, just like with the very successful CLEAN SWEEP.

In book 2, Dina is in a bit of a funk until she gets an opportunity to host peace talks. It's a dangerous proposition, but the Inn needs guests so she takes it. Chapter 2 part 2 posted this week, so we haven't ventured far in the story, but we have gotten a visit from a character familiar to fans of Andrews' other series, received tips on diplomacy from Caldenia (more Caldenia, yes!), and seen even more how Dina and her Inn can stretch the laws of physics. Those are really just guidelines anyways, right?

The major players are starting to arrive. Counting down to action and snark. I can't wait for chapter 3.

You can start reading here. If you are new to the Innkeepers, there is some exposition to help.

If you'd like to read where it all began, CLEAN SWEEP is available here: Amazon | B&N | Kobo
