Biergarten of the Damned

Biergarten of the Damned (Sam Quinn, #5)Biergarten of the Damned by Seana Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After all the craziness of the last book, this one comes off as almost sedate. Does Sam get thrown into crazy situations? Sure. But there’s a general focus to the big bad here.

Sam and Clive are back and working on building their married life together. After discovering the awesome magical construct the dragons had in the last book, that is currently under construction behind the book store. They are also working on their own house to live in together (outside the nocturn) like normal folks. Oh, and they’ve got a dog, who is maybe the star of this book. Something, however, is very much up with Dave. He’s ditching work and is maybe more ornery than usual.

Sam being Sam, can’t leave that alone so goes after him to discover he no longer wants anything to do with her. Thus begins Sam’s very reluctant entrance into the demon world to try to get her friend back. There’s a lot of secrets that get revealed as part of this journey, but we end up in a better place by the end. We even gain some unexpected friends along the way! This book is definitely setting up whatever happens next, but I did enjoy a deeper dive into the demon world. Oh, and there’s some almost side story for an old archnemesis of theirs (they have a lot of past villains), but this gives good resolution there, too.
