All the magical devices are super advanced tech, and the creatures are from other planets. While I'm definitely interested in seeing more of this big new universe, the authors don't bog us down with too many details. After all, this story is really about an adventure and an innkeeper coming into her own.
Dina's parents were innkeepers, and her upbringing and recent travels through the universe make her a capable manager and protector. (However, she's not much of a realtor or she would have known better when accepting this particular inn: "Location, location, location.") Dina has quite a few tricks up her sleeve, but she never seemed all-knowing or unreasonably strong. She's still learning and she knows she can't do everything on her own. It leaves a lot of room for character growth as the series progresses.
Finally, Clean Sweep has such a great, light, humorous tone, and there were several laugh out loud moments. (I do believe I spied a Twilight joke.) It reminds me of Nice Dragons Finish Last in that it doesn't take itself too seriously and is all about entertaining the reader. I will definitely be reading the next book.
As with all Andrews books, there is a tight plot and plenty of action but there is also humor. The authors fully exploit all the outrageous absurdities of their world and take obvious joy in them. How can you not love a military hero vampire who says this: <blockquote> "Mhm," Arland said. "I have spent my spare time studying literature popular with young women of this planet. One should always study the battlefield." Sean glanced at him. "And?" "I suggest you give up now. According to my research, in a vampire-werewolf love triangle, the vampire always gets the girl."</blockquote>
Dina is an innkeeper who provides a waystation for all the beings who use Earth as a stopover on their intergalactic travels. She, her werewolf neighbor Sean, and the aforementioned Arland must defeat a powerful mercenary creature gone amok. The interplay among these three is great and don’t worry, it’s not a Twilight-like love triangle. In fact, the romance is kept to a minimum.
