A faint chime tugged me out of sleep. I opened my eyes and blinked. I'd dreamt of a desert, a vast endless sea of shifting yellow sand under a white sun.
Friday 56:
"Your face is different," Helen said, looking up at me.

"It's because she's an innkeeper," Maud said. "This house is magic and she rules it. She's very powerful within the inn."
This week I am listening to the Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews and have reached book 3: One Fell Sweep. Here is the description from Amazon:
From the New York Times best-selling author, Ilona Andrews, comes a new tale from the Innkeeper Chronicles.

Dina DeMille may run the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, but she caters to a very particular kind of guest...the kind that no one on Earth is supposed to know about. Guests like a former intergalactic tyrant with an impressive bounty on her head, the Lord Marshal of a powerful vampire clan, and a displaced-and-superhot werewolf; so don't stand too close, or you may be collateral damage.

But what passes for Dina's normal life is about to be thrown into chaos. First, she must rescue her long-distant older sister, Maud, who's been exiled with her family to a planet that functions as the most lawless penal colony since Botany Bay. Then she agrees to help a guest whose last chance at saving his civilization could bring death and disaster to all Dina holds dear. Now Gertrude Hunt is under siege by a clan of assassins. To keep her guests safe and to find her missing parents, Dina will risk everything, even if she has to pay the ultimate price. Though Sean may have something to say about that!


  1. I love the sound of this one...and it's not my usual genre at all. It would be very distracting, I think.
