Characters: Mary Alice Brannigan, Ethan Wayne
Mary Alice Brannigan doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Nor does she expect to find that Dreamland, the decaying amusement park she’s been hired to restore, is a prison for the five Untouchables, the most powerful demons in the history of the world. Plus, there’s a guy she’s falling hard for, and there’s something about him that’s not quite right.
But rocky romances and demented demons aren’t the only problems in Dreamland: Mab’s also coping with a crooked politician, a supernatural raven, a secret government agency, an inexperienced sorceress, an unsettling inheritance, and some mind-boggling revelations from her past. As her personal demons wreck her new found relationship and real demons wreck the park, Mab faces down immortal evil and discovers what everybody who’s ever been to an amusement park knows: The end of the ride is always the wildest
At first I was a little confused because I was expecting a romance. Although there were some sexual interludes, I won't exactly call it a romance. It was paranormal without the romance. With that being said, I still loved it!
Every time Jennifer and Bob have teamed up, they've had a winner! (Agnes and the Hitman is still my all-time favorite!) Ther's always humor to be had in a Cruise novel, which was one of my main draws to this book, wanting to have that same feeling I had for Agnes. As always, it was witty as hell. (lol) I haven't come across a Jennifer Crusie heroine I didn't love.
Mab and Ethan are now part of the Guardia, which stands guard over powerful demons that are being held captive at Dreamland, so there's a lot of action-packed scenes with little time for romance. Both Ethan and Mab do of course find love, but there is no drawn out love affair type scenarios. Without giving to much away, I will say that Mab and Ethan don't end up with who you think they will.
