Oh, how I love and adore this series and the wide variety of characters. Not often a novella ends up being a 5 star read, but a return to Gertrude Hunt, Dina, Sean and Beast just did it for me.
This novella is a fairly quick read, but I was very happy to be able to revisit some of my favourite characters. Gertrude Hunt's other permanent guests add lots of humour to the storyline - Orro with all of his dramatic antics, and Caldenia's love of watching the local neighbourhood and her slightly blood thirsty attitude.....
" Besides, it's been almost 2 weeks since anyone was brutally murdered. Things were getting a bit dull. We wouldn't want to die of boredom, would we? ".
Caldenia - she's such a great character. I adore Dina, Sean and Beast, so I hope the authors just keep coming up with more storylines for them ❤️
Love, love, love this book but since I love everything written by this team of authors there is no surprise there.
Is was so good to see a little more of Dina and Sean’s relationship watching it develop and grow.
I’m looking forward to the audio version coming out I get the audio to every Ilona Andrews book so I can listen again and again.
The sneak peak of Emerald Fire was an unmitigated tease. I can’t even whinge about the wait for the book because I know they are working very hard already.
How could you not get totally invested in a book with the line ‘holster your weapons and step away from the monkey’. This is why anything these authors write will always be at the top of my got to read pile.
Ilona Andrews never fails. This is a sweet novella written to appease their book-devouring hoard of loyal fans and it brings everything we love about them to our attention again. It is another funny and smart peek into the Innkeeper world, Dinah and Shaun working together to keep their little piece of the universe safe from space chickens, television chefs, and a narcissistic wanna-be. You will love it!
There is so much excitement and beauty in this wonderful world of the Inn and Innkeeper, that it’s impossible to break away until you reach the end. And even after. I love the characters. Caledonia is a favourite of mine. I would love to spend time at the Gertrude Hunt. And so I re-read often.
I love this author. Every series is a great read. This story revisited all of my favourite characters from the Innkeeper series. There were a few grammatical errors which is unusual for this author. Fortunately these errors didn't detract from the story. Highly recommend it.
Unfair as it is, I want more, the wait for the next book is painful, the delight when the new book lands is bliss, the joy when I've finished the first read of it is enriching. This is the most wonderful series - I envy anyone who has just found the Innkeeper books xxx
Once again Ilona Andrews have written a brilliant and entertaining story. I love Dina, she is a wonderful character. I love all the characters in the innkeeper series and the interactions between them are funny.
