Sweep of the Heart is officially finished. We have typed The End.

Shahin Chowdhury says
got it on order thank you
Congratulations! Happy weekend!
Michelle D says
So delighted you can come up for air
Hurrah! Time for a well-deserved vacation, even if it means just. sitting in the back yard staring off into space : )
I wanted to say thank you for this fiction that has punctuated my weeks for several months. No author gives so much to their BDH. Looking forward to December 13 now.
I looked back at when the first chapter was posted. I didn’t remember it being posted on Christmas Eve, but Chapter 1 was posted on December 24, 2021. Can’t look back to see how long Clean Sweep and the others took, but we’ve had 9 months of pleasure following along on this serial. What a ride!
+1 MILLION thanks!
it’s Friday and I was devastated when I realized no more chapters!! Ah well, off to reread something by you guys!
J D says
It’s still FrInnday over on Tapas! Aaaand today’s post is the one where Arland is served coffee for the first time. 😉 IYKYK
And they did a great job!
Debi Murray says
Well done! Now do something fun or nothing at all. Plans to do nothing are still plans.
Patricia Schlorke says
Congratulations! Enjoy the fact that it’s done. 🙂
Thank you so much!! Don’t be afraid to lie on the floor for a bit, you’ve earned it.
Kira Hagen says
Congratulations! Can’t wait to read the finished book!
Congratulations! Rest and recuperate… Have a cup of tea… You’ve earned it!
(Now the w**t really begins!)
(Good thing new Tapas chapter today, else what would we read?! lol)
Inga Abel says
Congratulations to you and us all! ????
Amanda P says
YAY! Congratulations ???? ???? ????
Relax and have a great weekend
Lynne Davidson says
Woo-hoo! Time for you both to take a well deserved rest! When falling over, aim for the bed, or couch!
Sandhya Rao says
WOooHOOOO!!!! ???????????? So happy and so proud!
Melissa Chapman says
I’m happy for you, but also happy for me, cause I’ll get to read it soon. ????
I hope you can take a break and enjoy yourself a bit before you start your next project.
Socorro Villa Glass says
CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Pop a bottle of champagne or wine or nice cup of special tea, whatever you prefer to relax and celebrate.
Thank you, for every word. Seriously, and without exaggeration, your Friday instalments have got me through chemotherapy and radiotherapy and now the recovery. Of all your unforgettable books, this is the one I’ll remember the most because of how much it meant to me during one of my darkest moments. I was sick and alone (my husband passed away 7 years ago and my family is on the southern end of the continent) but Dina and Sean were there for me every Friday while I was hooked to the machines and the medicines. If I ever get the chance to meet you in person, I’ll give you a bear-hug just for that.
Celebrate, rest! Have fun and be happy!
Moderator R says
Congratulations on beating the bastard, Socorro! So happy the serial helped and so happy to have you with us in the BDH comments!
Gordon and I are so glad you endured! We wish you a complete and full recovery and lots of new cool books to read. 🙂
Woohoo, congratulations! ????????????????
Diane Peters says
Congratulations- enjoy some time off. It is apple cider time.
I love you guys! Thank you so much for what you do. ❤️❤️
followed by The Dance of Joy!
Enjoy your well-earned rest. We’ll try to be good. 🙂
Thankfully, Tapas releases on Fridays, so I’m not experiencing too much Innkeeper withdrawal. Arland encountered coffee today. 🙂
Thanks HA for all the wonderful stories and ModR for herding all the BDH cats.
Melissa S. says
Pamela F says
Congratulations! Thank you and looking forward with great expectations on getting my hands on the finished product. Take care and we will do the BDH happy dance in December.
Tonight I will raise a glass for the book and
Frinnsday – the best day of the week. Can’t wait for Sweep of the Heart to appear again!
Congratulations. You did great.
Congratulations! Go take a nice break this weekend! You both deserve it.
I can’t wait to read the final! Thanks so much for your hard work!!
It was 2 Clean Sweeps long, but at least quadruple the brilliance!
Diane E Wilson says
Congratulations! Can’t wait to read the finished version!
Congratulations!!! I can’t wait to read it. Hope you can get a breather and enjoy yourselves for a bit. I recently relistened to the series and the EDGE. I still remember my glee on my second read through of discovering the connection between inkeeper and the Edge.
love to you both
Congratulations! You deserve to fall down in a nice, comfy spot and have a good rest. Thank you so much for a wonderful book. And thanks to Mod R for herding the BDH ???? ????????????????????
woohoo ???? ????????
Congratulations. It is a great book. Rest and celebrate.
Now take some very well earned rest!
Congratulations! Now a well deserved rest.
House DeMille says
Congratulations! Thanks for posting this on Friday – was feeling oddly bereft knowing there would be no Innkeeper, but kept refreshing regardless…
Congrat! ???? Can’t wait for that epilogue!????
Hope you are happy and satisfied about the whole book (as much as all of us have been with the serialized chapters)!
fireworks on the way….
time for rest and relaxation for you both….
Pat Sciarini says
The BDH can’t wait to devour it.
Cori Shaye says
I’ve never had so much fun reading and doing surveys in my life. Maybe the census should take note.
A huge thank you. The two of you are glorious. Be sure to take your crowns off before you take that well earned nap <3
Congratuations! However, I’m concerned that you are so exhausted that you are falling over.
We want you to write for many years to come, so the BDH will just have to learn a little self restraint if it means that your writing process can take less of a toll on you. Hope you can enjoy a nice restorative break!
Self restraint is like wait and patience. There is none in the BDH.
time for teas, naps, attentions, more naps, rest. thank you for the serial and soon to be book.
Christine Gillis says
Congrats! Having FrInnDay to look forward to has literally been the only thing allowing me to successfully human at various points this year. Cannot wait until December to read the rest of it.
“Woo! *falls over*”
Kat Marvel says
Holy wow! House Andrews ROCKS!!!
Seriously, thank for writing us this book. It was so fun and so fascinating and I just can’t wait to see the resolution with Wilmos.
Blessings upon your house, your family, and your animals.
Wishing you a celebration of galactic proportions!!
Leigh Ann Parente says
It’s already a classic.
Donuts for the Costco Lady!!!!
???? CONGRATULATIONS!!! ????
???? ???? ????
Made it 1 character too wide ????????♀️
Congratulations on completing it!!! Excited for the release. I have already pre-ordered!!
Robin Šebelová says
May I have an off-topic question/suggestion:
Have you ever considered creating a HA worlds and characters gallery on your pages?
Louisa Preissler arts are amazing and I love the image of Orro by Isabeau Backhaus in previous post.
So just now I’ve tried to look for older blogposts with Innkeeper and Hidden Legacy images with results being difficult to obtain as some articles went missing. When I looked to “Wallpaper” tag, there were only two older from HL series. Then I found an “art” tag and there finally were more images found.
Could you please create an easily accessible gallery? It is interesting to compare ones imagination with imagination of a painter.
Woot! Now time for a nap.
woo hoo ????
Now, go to a nice restaurant and enjoy this beautiful Texas Fall weekend.
That’s a great idea! It’s delightful out in the mornings now.
New Braunfels has a great Hollydays market in their convention center this weekend. Went to it this morning and lots of nice stuff. The xmas shopping has begun
Yeah … can’t wait for release date
“It is literally 2 Clean Sweeps long.”
So the next one will be “Crystal very clear swep” and will be 3 times long?
Jockyng, please, son’t ban me!
Hooray! Congratulations, I hope you find time to head to a beach for a break!
Melissa Pagluica says
Yeeees!!! So happy for ya!
Cant wait to read the entire story!!
Stephanie F says
Congratulations!! Now for some well deserved rest. 🙂
Many thanks to you & Gordon for all your wonderful writing and for sharing the journey of this book with us in a weekly serial, much appreciated!! Can’t wait to read the final version when it comes out in Dec!
And a question, in anticipation. As I transition my library to digital books I wonder if it might be possible to sell a slightly more expensive digital version of your books with a digital signature page added. I would buy one.
Just a thought.
Cheryl M says
Hooray!!! But I shall miss the weekly installments.
Congratulations and Thank You!!
Woooooooooho!!!! You did it!
Aaah. Wonderful! Have a great weekend.
Terrie C says
Congrats and woohoo for us. Still in top 50 in Kindle store and #1 for Paranormal & Urban Fantasy. And twice the size of Clean Sweep…doing the happy dance.

Thank you for this world!
Michele G says
Congratulations ::happy dance:: Thank you so much for all your hard work. Sleep, rest and unwind please.
Count down to December has started.
Erin M says
You are amazing! The book is amazing! Congratulations!!
I want to thank you so much for not only making your characters ones we can connect with, but also that your worlds are consistent in and of themselves, even with the powers of the innkeepers to play with. I look forward to the extra chapters with Wilmos’ rescue in the published version.
Now, perhaps you should have a nice cup of tea with a cookie or bit of cake, then check your yarn stash and patterns for a nice, relaxing shawl or scarf to knit. Gordon can nap or catch up on his projects for fun, and Mod R can put up her feet and read with a box/bag of chocolates–it is Halloween season now.
Moderator R says
When it comes to chocolate, my pronouns are sack/crate :D. Yay Spooky Season!
Congratulations and thank you for a great story!
YAY! So glad it is written, will totally wait with baited breath for my kindle to deliver it at 10pm on the day before release. No sleep that night for sure. It has been amazing, once again to have the story installments every Friday. Thanks for all that you guys do to make our lives more enjoyable and giving us something to look forward to. 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS!! And THANK YOU for the wonderful ride so far. I am excitedly looking forward to reading the final version with the ending!
You and Gordon are so good to the BDH. No other authors do so much. And we so so so appreciate you.
Please have a wonderful relaxing break. We must ensure that HA is well taken care of! You are a national treasure.
I think I’m going into withdrawals.
I kept going to your website today to see the new Inn keeper posting… …….
oh wait…….there’s no more Innkeeper posting, crying……
I’m gonna ……cry ????????????
Moderator R says
Awww, it won’t be long until release day!
congratulations!! hope you get a break!!!
Y’all know how to throw a party – ya-hoo!! Hoping there is time for celebratory BBQ, rest, and animal / family time.
Squeezing in a final reread to tide me over until December.
Y’all are amazing! Congratulations! Thank you for your hard work. I know I say that a lot but I like to express my gratitude bc I am grateful lol. I know it’s a TON of work.
So thank you.
Kelly Olson says
Congratulations! Time to kick back and relax
Judy Schultheis says
We love you, too!
Congratulations ???????????? looking forward to it
Congratulations! Hope all other Real Life stuff goes well, and that K2 gets finished with her project.
BT Newman says
You both are just too awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your lives and your writing!
Marcia Sundquist says
Congratulations ???? ????,
rest awhile and decompress, until the next book bug bites.
I am simultaneously ecstatic to read the book in final form in December, and absolutely devastated that my weekly dose of book crack is over for now. Enjoy your break!
Moderator R says
I see what you did there hehe.
Yeah, going through withdrawal myself…
so this morning at around 10 am I go: today is Friday yay, then I think, oh no more installments, but I then I remembered I have December 13 to look forward to…
It was all very circonvoluted in my head… so I figured even if there are no more installments, I’ll console myself with the blog and wait for the ebook, GA book and whatever goodies the AuthorLords will surely come up with ????????♀️
Karen P says
Yay!!! Can’t wait ☺️ and thank you ????
Ilona, have you watched ‘Love Between Fairy and Devil’? I’m in general curious on your thoughts on the show. I usually watch Korean shows more than Chinese, but this one has me hook (though frustrated at times).
Moderator R says
I know Ilona watched both Love Between Fairy and Devil and Love like the Galaxy, yes 🙂
Love like the Galaxy has only recently popped up on my suggested viewing. I’ll have to watch it next!
Trish Springsteen says
awesome , looking forward to reading the complete book. Take time to breathe and be you
Congratulations ???????????? and now enjoy the point you’ve reached and your weekend!
WooHoo! Now take a break and have a great weekend!
Dianna Kilgore says
Thanks for all your hard work. Looking forward to the finished book in December. Loved the roller coaster ride.
Can’t wait to read it.
Yay!!! Thank you❤️
You all rock! Thank you! Now take a break.
That’s so many words! Congrats on done! May the rest of the process be kinder and faster than expected.
Congratulations!! The serial installments were awesome, I’m sure the edited story all together will also be awesome!
Digital-confetti all over the house????????????????????????????????
Stacy McKnight says
What I have read has been brilliant! I can hardly wait to read the final version – yes I have pre ordered it! I really loved Clean Sweep. I am thrilled to get twice as much . You would probably have to start writing absolute crap-it’s ok to say I know you won’t because ethics, standards, talent and skills- before I wouldn’t want more! More! MORE!
I just finished my re-read. Now to look forward to release date and Wilmos!
Thank you for the Friday post. I was wondering how to break my blog checking habit! ????
Badmama Battillo says
We in NW Florida are greeting the first day of Fall and a Category 5 hurricane together! May we greet it all with pounding hearts and extreme joy that our favorite authors have been triumphant yet again! 🙂 I plan to take to my bed and begin a relaxing reread and a sincere prayer for the best! CONGRATULATIONS! Thank you again for MANY hours of reading pleasure and the expectation of MANY more!
Woo hoo! So happy for you two and us! ????????
Valerie T says
And our cup runneth over … wheeeeee! And really, thank you so much for the fun & stories. All of ‘em!!
Thank you. It was fabulous and I enjoyed every moment of reading it.
Yay! And now take a long rest. You deserve it!
Angie Papas says
Well done Gordon and Ilona!It is really an amazing book. Thank you!

Omar Mtz says
::throws more confetti::
Congrats, what a terrific achievement!!!
I see you rolling on the floor getting covered in confetti with Charlie standing there with his head tilted, What are doing down here?!
Thank you and Congratulations!
Congratulations, more Confetti, lits of Tea, not too many Edition returning and some downtime for you.
Amazing that it got to be almost two Clean Sweeps long- but then it is two stories in one book really and so many cool things. Can’t wait to rediscover all the little gems in December. Thank you for so many lovely FrInndays ro Brighton our weeks.
It was 2 Clean Sweeps wonderful! Thank you so, so very much!!!
Elizabeth Jensen says
Congratulations on done!
Congratulations!! So grateful for you!
The BDH, thanks you for your efforts and can’t wait to dive into the book!!!!
Mary Beth says
Time for a nice glass of wine and a long vacation.
Marie S says
Can’t wait to read in book form and find out what happens next.
Thrilling so far.
A well deserved break I hope for you both.
Mary Cruickshank Peed says
Congratulations! You both deserve some time off before edits. Thanks for how much you give to your readers. Now go celebrate ????
Kristi Carrillo says
Yay! Get a good rest, please.
Fabulous news ????????
And there was much rejoicing.
Congratulations on the final words!
Hope your October is restful and peaceful.
Congratulations and thank you! I have pre-ordered the final copy. I have had such a wonderful time reading the installments. They have been bright spots in some otherwise way-too-long weeks recently!
Karen L says
Woohoo!!! Congrats! Can’t wait to read it again all at once and find out what happened to Wilmos.
Great job! Off to preorder land.

Tammy C. says

Birgit Fehrs says
Thanks for your wonderful stories! I am reading all your books ???? again and again! Can’t wait for this one to read in one piece!
Stephanie F. says
I’m really looking forward to it. I love the series.
Alison Parker says
Thank you so very much! It was an awesome ride. Please take care of yourselves. I hope you receive as much joy from life as I do when reading your books.
Confetti everywhere!! Tried to upload the grumpy cat confetti gif, but it was too big. I’m kind of grumpy its over because I LOVE Frinnday, but I’m so glad you’re done and can rest! I’ve been writing a project for the last two weeks, and I’ve used your “Die! Just DIE already! in my had a lot! Thanks for your amazing stories and enjoy the rest time.
That was supposed to be head. ????
Yea! Can’t wait to read the conclusion! I’m wondering how you’re going to rescue Wilmos that fast????
That’s so exciting! I’m rereading the entire thing before it disappears, and I preordered the complete version.
This book has been such a joy in a difficult time.
Congratulations! Get lots of rest! Thank you for the new book!
Bonnie Papini says
Congratulations on finishing the book and overcoming all distractions from family issues, pet companion issues, weather issues and decorating issues. Looking forward to the finished product and seeing Wilmos again. Have got to say, loved the section with the Costco lady. Absolute genius.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery, even without Orro’s donuts. When House Andrews is back to work, may I vote for Hugh and Elara? Been wondering about the happenings between the end of “Iron and Magic” and “Magic Triumphs.”
Bill G says
Congratulations! So happy for you (and me)!
karen johnson says
Congratulations???????????? def deserve ???????????? and a well deserved rest!
Well done, a great story and the finish must have been a rush. I have ordered it from Amazon as a kindle and will there be a hardback? (which will out last the fall of civilisation). I need books to keep my depression at bay.
Moderator R says
There will be a print version (available on release day) but no news of a hardback at this time 🙂
Congratulations, get some well deserved rest (if you can).
Congratulations! I hope you enjoy a well deserved break before you begin your next project. I am sad that our Frindays are returning to just a plain old Fridays with no Inn Keeper to read – your posts are such a lovely way to end each week. Thank you for such kindness is sharing the writing process.
I have pre ordered of course, and I am looking forward to reading the entire book with the resolution of Wilmos!
Congratulations! Can hardly wait until it’s out!!????
Hooray! Big congratulations on finishing it and thank you thank you for all of your work!
Woof! Awesome job! VacateVacateVacateVacateVacateVacateVacate. Shun. Now!
Congratulations! You guys are so amazing!
Dayam, y’all! Two Clean Sweeps?!
Can’t wait to read the whole thing.
::runs through confetti:: Whoot! Yay! Congratulations!
Kat in NJ says
Congrats on a job well done (and that’s based on what you’ve so generously shared with the BDH so far: I’m sure the ending will be just as wonderful!) I can’t wait until December! ????????
Now go get some rest, drink some tea, eat some delicious cookies and donuts, and enjoy some vacation time…the BDH insists! (Mod R, this includes you!!)
Robyn A. says
Yea! Good going Ilona and Gordon! We thank you, thank you, thank you! Have fun collapsing!
Mega congratulations! And mega thanks for writing another fabulous adventure for the world to read and love. So very selfishly happy IA exists and I know about you and your work. Be assured you are of THOSE who add wonder to our world.
Congratulations!! Let the count down begin.
???? thank you thank you thank you
Eleanor Wood says
Congratulations on another superb effort, both with your writing and with keeping the BDH involved! I’m beyond excited that we get such a great pre-holiday gift. When you mentioned confetti, it reminded me of a company in England that grows and harvests flowers in a wide variety of colors for their petals. The dried petals are sold as confetti. I love the idea of a pile of those petals softening your fall. Rest well, and I look forward to December 13!
Jennifer Ellis says
I haven’t read a word you have written without enjoying it to the fullest. Thank you so much. Your Innkeeper chronicles have offered an awful lot and I’m afraid to admit, I’ve pinched structures (not words) for my own stories. I still giggle thinking about ‘A Mere Formality’.
It’s a full Bachelor season and a book so I’m not surprised that is extra long! I’m very thankful you both shared it with us!
Amanda in Austin says
So exciting. Who else but the BDH would have dreamed the Innkeeper could get up to so much trouble? Much earned rest coming your way I hope! Thank you for sharing the Gertrude Hunt crew with us once more!
Liz Kulpa says
Loved the weekly updates, now looking forward to the complete book. Thank you so much to one of my favourite authors, you’re up there with Terry Prachett, May his name be around forever.
BTW, take care of yourselves, hate those fasting efforts before ‘medical testing’ uuugh!
Sharon S says
I loved every serial episode and can’t wait for the pre-ordered book.
Thank you again for the generosity of serialising it…and for the suspense about what’s in the last chapter.
I hope you get a small break and a rest.
Gail G says
Bravo, Brava! Take a nap????
Nice work! Enjoy a breath or two!
WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MOMENTOUS OCCASION!!!!
We are very very excited.
Wishing you a bit of a break though!!!!
We will always be here!
Ann C. says
Yay, and congratulations !????????????
Thank you so much for your gift to us.
Yea????⚡️???????????? Looking forward to my birthday and the BIG day of the release,Dec 13!!!! Can’t wait for them to get here!!!!
Sharon Leahy says
Happy for you!!! Grateful to you!!! Delightedly looking forward to hearing the audiobook!!! So glad you get some rest and play time now. So happy you have a new and different type of story in mind for your next project. Get frisky!!! Have fun!!!
Cathy R says
Thank you so much for the glorious FrINNdays, the fascinating in-between posts and the twice as long (SQUEE!) book that is coming. Please enjoy a well earned celebration and respite!! I can hardly wait foe December 13!! Your blog is still my favorite site to read even without the chapters.
Susan J says
Au revoir, Dina and Sean and all the others. Just finished my rereading. Looking forward to meeting you again in December.
may you land softly and on a bed of roses .. without any thorns… and thankyou and congratulations too????????????
Congratulations!!!IT IS great!!
To add to the horde, thank you so much for the weekly joy. Like many others it’s been a bright light, I had my first baby in November and struggled with PND along with a bereavement.
This was one of the first things I carved out for myself every week and helped me remember my love of reading. Gave me something to look forward to and talk about with my friends. The power of a good story cannot be overstated.
Moderator R says
I’m so happy it helped, Vicki! *hugs* Sending you love!
Yes, my copy is preordered. I am really looking forward to filling in the obvious blanks and seeing how it all works out.
I am absolutely impressed by the way House Andrews managed to move the story along given the time restraints you put on yourselves. It’s always nice to watch a couple of professionals at work.
Congratulations! And a heart-felt “Thank you!”
I am so happy that Dina spoke up for herself in the face of the Innkeepers. I have multiple feels about this and I need to process! Before I retire and curl up in a blanket with doughnuts, however, I must thank you House Andrews. This was a wonderful gift that brought many moments of delight during hard weeks, and joy in difficult times. Thank you x 1000
What? Did I miss the last chapter??? Nooooooo!
Badmama Battillo says
I am so pleased my prophesy came true and he chose the one who would make them BOTH very happy! 🙂
To the best writing Andrews in our Universe: May you have all the doughnuts that can be safely delivered to your bedchamber, and after a deliberate act of gluttony, may you fall into the soft, warm, poofy bed and may you blissfully sleep until you (very soon) are struck by the first line of your next wonderful offering!
WOOOOHOOOOO!!!! Thank you 🙂
Katrina Collins says
I had my husband read a chapter of _Sweep of the Heart_ and it intrigued him enough that he started the first book this morning. He has to leave for a doctor’s appointment and he’s having a fit that he has to stop reading in order to get cleaned up, drive out there, do the appointment, and drive home. Another supplicant to the BDH! His frustration is highly amusing.
Congratulations! Thank you so much for this wonderful reading journey!
May you have a great vacation, with tea, snacks, rest and lots of joy!
Very excited for when the “Innkeeper Chronicles” books are released in my language. Portuguese publishers are very slow.
Kim W says
I know this blog is a ton of work on top of writing a double length book. I don’t often comment, but I wanted to say that when I’m sad or anxious, this blog is a balm. Most authors are not this approachable or funny. I appreciate all of you– Ilona, Gordon, Mod R. Thanks.
Jessica Freitas says
This time I didn’t follow on the blog so I am SOOOO EXCIITEEEDDD
MELINDA FLICK says
Oooh, longer than standard! YAY!
Was there a chapter after Lady W chats to Dina about her contract and knowing K as a child? Have a missed an instalment?
Moderator R says
Yes, there was a finale chapter, I’m afraid you did miss it ????.
But December isn’t so far now!
Noooo! Drat real life and my 4 kids. Oh well, something to look forward to.
Andrea Smith says
Congratulations on finishing!
I’m smiling to myself remembering that Lil’Red Riding Hood music video you posted after finishing the first Innkeeper.
Brenda French says
I showed up today to read the last couple of installments, but the site won’t let me. The Innkeeper screen still says active, but when I try to click on latest post, it won’t let me!
Moderator R says
The serial has been archived on Monday as announced last week ????
Not long until December!
Barbara Shelby says
What next? Do you have an itinerary of what book you plan on writing next? Curious to know now that Fridays are open again.
Moderator R says
It’s edits next ????, getting Sweep of the Heart ready for the audio book recording.
As for further projects, House Andrews will not be announcing what they are working on until the preorder is ready to go up. For more details, please see https://ilona-andrews.com/2022/on-being-difficult/
Kym Vance says
OMGosh. Read the draft through chapter 26. I have no idea how it ended. I’m in shock.
I can’t wait to be back in Gertrude Hunt! Thank you so much for this wonderful series.
I knew I should’ve invented time to read the last chapter when I saw it here, even if I was in the middle of a big move-out. :”(
Oh well, c’est la vie!
I may have missed something but as you said you will concentrate on other projects for a while but will Dina and her sister find their brother and their parents? How could and entire Inn disappear. If you have covered this I would love to read it. Thank you for sharing your stories with us.
Congrats! I can’t wait!
Oh…I still have to wait…for Arabella!
Have I missed it?
Dina told Cookie he could have his choice of candidates to eliminate. I think I read all of the chapters available, he didn’t eliminate any of them?
Moderator R says
She didn’t tell him he would “have his choice” 🙂 . Just that uncovering information on a candidate will lead to an elimination- that of the *specific candidate* he gives Dina dirt on. Which it did ????
Whoop whoop, but were did it go? Why dont I see it on here any more? Im still in the middle of reading it
Moderator R says
The chapters of SotH are now in edits, so they are no longer available on the blog, as announced 2 weeks ago.
For further details, please see https://ilona-andrews.com/2022/where-is-the-precious/
