Sweep of the Heart is a serial novella set in the Innkeeper Chronicles featuring Sean Evans and Dina Demille.
The Andrews’ release this series weekly on their blog, but I wait for the audio release and it’s been a long two years. I planned to savour the audio but once I dove in it was all over. It was well worth the loss of sleep.
I love Gertrude Hunt, the magical intergalactic inn that is bigger on the inside! If I could choose a dream job… this would be it. Of course it doesn’t come without problems and this bride contest puts those reality tv versions to shame. From hosting different species and handling their dietary and environment needs to keeping the emperor alive.
The bridal selection ceremony & trials brings three hundred and some guests spanning fourteen species. Whoa baby. So why are Sean and Dina hosting? Sean’s werewolf mentor, Wilmos has been captured and they need a boon from the emperor.
In this episode we finally learn about Caldenia, the inn’s permanent guest. The Andrews never cease to amaze me with their storytelling and I found myself completely caught up in the events, rooms, views and political drama that unfolded.
The relationship between Dina & Sean has strengthened since we last visited in the inn. I love the ease, trust and love between them. They’ll need it for the last part of the story when they travel to aid Wilmos. The story is packed with information and twists that had my mind exploding and wishing for the next audiobook.
Narrated by Nora Sofyan I loved listening. From the voices of the different species, to the banter between Dina & Sean. It was epic. Nora does a wonderful job and enhanced the story bringing these characters and events to life for me. The series is wonderful in audio format.
