Let's just say that there is a crazy, power hungry magical villain, a ghost, some sidhe, and lots of fur flying. We are looking forward to reading the next instalment. Lily's better half is Rule Turner who is a werewolf and the Lu Nuncio heir to the Alpha position Rho. Plus those couple of sweet encounters between Lily and Rule are very nice, and I love the series overall. Pull them out by the roots.
There is no better way to escape reality than with a Wilks adventure! There's plenty going on, action and danger, and as is true in the last few books, the ongoing back story which began early in the series, has become more of the major focus. The way Lily and Rule love, not only one another, but their families and friends is beautiful. I'm anxious to read on. I had a hard time starting this book. The secluded beach house was the perfect honeymoon hideaway.
Lily is managing the conflict between her duty as an officer of the law and the need for secrecy pretty well. This is an action packed series and well worth the read. They will all be in adult diapers before she makes a decision. Once I got back to where I knew what was going on with the story, I loved it. I wish I'd re-read book 8, I think would've enjoyed the earlier parts of this book.
This is the ninth book in the series and it really is a series that is best read in order. Her character development is excellent, and her plot lines beautifully done. Like Tony Romano, the new Laban Rho. I'm more anxious than ever to get my hands on the next book. We would like to start with some background information. That Lily and Rule keep negotiating what they want from each other and can offer each other, even as the stakes in the game of war between the Lupi and their adversaries get explored in more detail.
I absolutely love this series 4. So, while there are a couple of nice moments, overall there's not much passion between Lily and Rule this time. Even with their goal being for reasons completely beyond anything Cullen and Lily had imagined because the Sidhe goals and values are society is so different from anything they knew. I'm glad I didn't skip the novella because it takes place parallel to this one and is referenced. Lily and Rule have to find the traitor, the thief, and the prototype. We also get an excerpt from the next book, Ritual Magic. My one and only criticism is that as we're approaching the story's climax, one of the scenes just seems to go on too long; probably because I was anxious for the resolution.
I actually grew to like this guy. Which brings me back to relationships — because so often Lily can be in opposition to someone yet still have a lot of respect for them which we see here again. Congratulations on the release of Mortal Ties. We've had time to become accustomed to the lupi culture, although Wilks is providing even more back history on general and personal histories in this installment. In this book, Rule gets a little angsty.
Shame on me for forgetting that. Eileen: When I need to talk out a problem, I usually call my daughter. Lily and Rule both learn more about trust and communication, but also actions meant for protection. But what seemed to be a quick conclusion turns out to be anything but. Author Eileen Wilks was once best known for her light romance novels, which she has written in great number, and which have been very popular over the years. I highly recommend this series to Urban Fantasy fans.
But the prototype can be dangerously erratic, discharging a bizarre form of mind magic--and it looks like the thief wants it for that very side effect. But I agree with them on this one. Eventually I got it transcribed into a form I could copy and send out. There was an interesting event early in the book that did not go where you expected, which is also to be expected from this author. It's also the series with the world's longest-running love triangle.
I have waited and waited for them to be married so maybe in the next book it wi I have read all the books in the series and each story gets more engrossing and more exciting than the last. Mortal Danger The World of the Lupi, Book 2 This is one of the top-ranked Eileen Wilks books written pieces that teen and adult teen readers will absolutely love! Cullen Seaborn, the Nokolai werewolf and sorcerer has created a prototype that could change so much for the world — helping reduce the ongoing problem of the magical turn which is so destructive for technology. Lily is very special as she is one of the Chosen. Either way, I can't wait to find out what happens next when the story continues in 2013 with Ritual Magic and even though I am not sure where Wilks will take us in the next book, I hope that there are still a few more books left to go in the series before the final confrontation between the Lupi's mortal enemy who is not named and the Lupi's Lady goddess, because I am going to be sad when this series is finally done. The story opens right at the holiday season with Lily and Rule recovered from the troubles in book eight and living protected now that the Lupi are at war with the evil goddess and her followers led by Robert Friar. So as you can see there's a little bit of everything going on and Ms. In addition to this excellent character we also have the idea that all elves are culturally bisexual and consider monosexuals deviant… so more bisexuals? The Lupi series by Eileen Wilks is one of my all time favorites.
