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 newfound 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Schmerica | 2/17/2014

    " The thing is, I actually really enjoyed this book, but I don't feel like I can give it a higher rating, because the romance parts were so weak. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 2/3/2014

    " Very strange story, but it grew on me, and by the end I was satisfied with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 1/28/2014

    " I always enjoy Crusie and Mayer, there's no denying that. I think I just read this book at the wrong time. I think it was a bit too light to have followed Diana Gabaldon's Echo In The Bone. Good, cute story and one that I enjoyed, but I think I wanted a bit more from it. I think that I'll give myself a few more months and then I'll re-read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Siela | 1/25/2014

    " Agnes and the Hitman is still my favorite book from Crusie and Mayer. This one kind of fell short for me. There were definitely some funny moments, but the characters didn't interest me. It was one of those books that I just want to finish quickly, not because it's good and I can't wait for the ending, but because I just want to get it over with. With that said, I can't wait for what these two will come up with next. I hope it will be as good or even better than Agnes and the Hitman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christa | 1/22/2014

    " funny.demons soothsayers, tricksters, goddesess, highjinks and a bit of romance to wrap it all up in a neat little fun package. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/20/2014

    " This novel is set at an amusement park in the middle of the Ohio River. The town of Parkersburg is mentioned several times and it appears that the author is putting Parkersburg in Ohio (it is actually in West Virginia, but is on the river). Anyway, the amusement park is more than just an amusement park, it is a demon keep which imprisons the five Untouchable demons. The bulk of the story centers around Mab, the woman restoring the park, and a group of park workers who make up the Guardia who keep watch over the demons. Anyway, there are bad guys, demons, minions, possessed teddy bears, government agents, and more in the offbeat cast of characters. I found myself laughing out loud several times and thoroughly enjoyed the romp through the demon prison/amusement park. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marti | 1/15/2014

    " This was weird. Very Buffy-derivative. I really liked Crusie & Mayer's last book together (Agnes & the Hitman) but this one was just a little over the top. :p "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary | 1/12/2014

    " An entertaining read with Crusie's wit and Mayer's knack for action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayanne | 12/31/2013

    " Demon-infested amusement park romance "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara Södergren | 12/22/2013

    " Fun, but a little disappointing, in comparison to Agnes and the Hitman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 12/18/2013

    " I would go with 3.5 stars for this because it wasn't super fantastic, but it was an enjoyable read. Love Jennifer Crusie - can't wait until she writes another solo book again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 12/13/2013

    " I just love Jennifer Crusie. That's all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/1/2013

    " Strange book, but it held my interest enough to want to finish it even at the expense of an over-due fine at the library. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 11/26/2013

    " meh.they've done better. also a little behind at supernatural curve but I like the idea of a demon interment camp at a second tier amusementpark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan Horkey | 9/23/2013

    " Very different from Jennifer Crusie's usual books. Supernatural. Hmmmm. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 8/22/2013

    " Kinda weird but just as good as the others written by this pair "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clarissa | 7/20/2013

    " I loved this book. It was so interesting to me at the end of it I wished that there was a sequel. I also went and read the little prequel they have on the website and wished it had been turned into a full novel. Would read both a prequel and sequel novel in a heartbeat if written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 5/4/2013

    " Pretty cute, but not my favorite Crusie (or even favorite Crusie/Mayer combo). I didn't connect with the characters the way I usually do in Crusie novels-- maybe there were just too many?-- and the snappy dialogue wasn't as good as some of her other works. Still, it was a fun, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi Boyd | 12/5/2012

    " Love this duo of writers, they craft a great story and characters. The premise of this book was a little too far fetched. Agnes and the Hitman was by far my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Dunn | 7/10/2012

    " For my book club. Not impressed so far. Update: After the first third of the book things made more sense and I became more invested in the characters. Ultimately, it was an enjoyable beach novel. Library book -- don't pay money for this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 5/23/2012

    " Fun, funny beach-read type of book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nesannce Coon | 2/3/2012

    " I didn't like the fact that the book starts out with a scene with a clown--but!--I enjoyed this novel. The story was creative and fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica Luxford | 9/11/2011

    " This was my first book by this author. I became a fan instantly! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moira | 8/28/2011

    " Fun! Demons roam the amusement park trying to take over the world and send us all to hell. What's not fun in that?! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ali | 5/16/2011

    " Way more fantastical than I thought it was going to be, but I still kinda liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 5/4/2011

    " Books by this powerhouse team of authors are one of guilty pleasures in life. The balance of action hero from Bob and the pert relational parts from Jennifer make it a truly fun book to read. Same for Agnes and the Hit Man. Also, the premise and plot lines keep you going in taut suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleni | 4/22/2011

    " Wickedly funny, as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/18/2011

    " Highly entertaining - it had good banter and a number of surprises. The romance aspect was more muted than I would have expected, but it made sense and worked well with the rest of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Guenevere | 4/15/2011

    " Cute, but I like Crusie and Mayer better when they're doing their action romance comedy combo, adding the paranormal made it a little more whacky than I was anticipating. Fun read though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 4/6/2011

    " Very fun, as usual. Who else would combine demons, clowns, awkward sex and make me laugh out loud? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rebekah | 4/6/2011

    " I expected more after Agnes and the Hitman "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/1/2011

    " yay! Finally good collab. set in amus. Park "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 2/21/2011

    " When I began reading this book I was wondering what I was getting myself in to. I'm glad I didn't stop reading it. Not as good as Agnes but definitely much better than Don't Look Down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meeta | 2/20/2011

    " Way too weird for my taste. Between that and "Maybe This Time," I think Jennifer Crusie is losing it. YMMV. Might be time to re-read "Bet Me." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/20/2011

    " Kinda weird but just as good as the others written by this pair "
