The Innkeeper Chronicles, Volume Two by Ilona Andrews

We're pleased to announce, from NYT #1 bestselling author Ilona Andrews, a second omnibus collecting further novels, novellas, and short stories in the Innkeeper series. Turn the opening page of The Innkeeper Chronicles Volume Two and enter a world where a quaint B&B in a small Texas town is the entrance to an entire universe where monsters of legend rub shoulders with alien species, and the Innkeepers serve as hosts and try to keep the peace...

Sweep of the Blade follows Dina’s sister, Maud Demille. Rescued from the savage prison planet Karhari, where she and her daughter Helen were exiled along with her disgraced—and soon deceased—husband, a proud vampire knight. Maud has spent the last year avenging his debt, at great peril. But Fate has put her in the path of an even more powerful vampire: Arland, the Marshal of House Krahr, who is determined to marry her, despite her discouragements. To settle the matter, Maud agrees to a trip to his home planet where many surprises and mayhem await…

In Sweep with Me, Dina Demille and Sean Evans are readying Gertrude Hunt Inn for a special Innkeeper holiday that celebrates the treaty uniting all the Inns and setting the rules that keep intergalactic guests—and the people of Earth—safe. During the festivity, the Innkeepers must open their doors to anyone who asks. Anyone. Dina is hoping for the best while preparing for the worst…and this year, she has good reasons for both!

The charming prequel story “Gerard Demille and Helen Meet” depicts the first meeting of Dina’s father and mother, and her two young children, Klaus and Maud. Of course, Helen can’t exactly see Gerard, trapped as he is in the house she’s visiting with an eye toward purchase…

Fans of both The Edge and Innkeeper series will delight at “George and Jack in School,” a glimpse of George and Jack in their youth, tossed in among the aristocrats of the Weird, and with their usual penchant for trouble…
