I enjoyed this book but not as much as some of the others in the series. There isn't anything really wrong with it but I felt like I was chasing my tail for the whole thing and didn't really get anywhere in terms of the overall story arc.
I just wish someone would kill that bastard Robert Friar and then he would stop showing up as the bad guy. I get the impression that he is a crutch rather than a real and developed character.
Nice move, Rule, telling Lily that her guards are her backup. Even the FBI has to call in backup sometimes…
This story is more of an opportunity for Drummond to rehabilitate himself, to look back over the decisions which led him to throw in with the wrong side. It's also an interesting peek into life after death; Wilks has some intriguing ideas about this, from the gho ...more
What I Liked: I’ve totally adjusted to the new voice of Rule Turner. Actually, that only took about 30 minutes of listening. :) I also really like three of the new characters: Ghost-Al Drummond, Jasper Machek, and Alycithin. I know from the preview of Ritual Magic that Al will be back; I hope we see more of Jasper and Alycithin, too.
Grandmother puts in an appearance! I love it when Grandmother is involved. I love how she bosses everyone around, too.
I also li ...more
The majority of the story takes place in San Francisco and involves another clan new to us, a couple of characters that will probably continue to be important in ...more
It is rated 4.5 out of 5 Bullets.
First off…I want to say that I know I normally stick to the short & sweet reviews. However, the way I reviewed this book is slightly different. I focused more on the series as a whole and they factors that make this one of my favorite series. It is very hard not to give spoilers with a series of this depth and complexity. That factored into my decision. So. It is a long review (f ...more
I can't say it enough...this series gets better with each book. T ...more
Despite the slow start, I was able to appreciate the action and intense focus on the world building. However, there is less time spent on Rule and Lily in this installment. A sense of urgency pulls the plot forward so that you don't necessarily find the romance lacking, but I still would have liked to see more time spent on building a connection between Rule and Lily. After all, they will be getting married soon.
Though not always perfect in its pacing, Wilks creates an intriguing ride w ...more

**“Eileen Wilks is a truly gifted writer,” (*Romance Junkies*)and her Novels of the Lupi have drawn readers into a seductive world of action, suspense, and passion. Now, FBI agent Lily Yu tracks a traitor into the darkest shadows yet…**
FBI agent Lily Yu is living at Nokolai Clanhome with her fiancé, lupi Rule Turner, when an intruder penetrates their territory, stealing the prototpye of a magical device the clan hopes will be worth a fortune--if a few bugs can be worked out . . .
But the proto
Ich freu mich immer wieder auf ein neues Band von Wolf Shadow. Da freut man sich auf das Wiedersehen von alten Bekannten. Man wird nicht müde über die Lupi zu lesen und dem Kampf gegen die deren Namen man nicht ausspricht. Vor al ...more
There isn't much new to say about the dynamics of the 9th installment of this series that finds Lily and Rule still dealing with some of the aftermath from Death Magic which includes a move to Clanhome. In an effort to keep the series fresh, the siblings are called upon to play critical roles this time out as a stolen magical artifact that must be found and returned is key to the latest nefarious scheme.
I liked the new spin with input from Lily's sister and Rule's brother, their ...more
Just a couple of thoughts on this installment, not really a proper review.
1.) what's happened to my Rule? His Alpha card is seriously in jeopardy
2.) I liked Al...he did good
3.) Why would Lily and Rule let the elves off the hook? Really???
4.)the (view spoiler)[half-brother Rule didn't know about? Lame (hide spoiler)]
5.) Too much of the author's politics being pushed and disturbing the flow of the book
6.) Shame on you, Sam
7.) Lily...the Cynna thing...not cool
8.) Beth...you're an idiot
9.) Magi ...more
I’m having a love/hate relationship with this series. I love the characters and how the connect, but I hate some of what happens to them and their inability to be together. The bad guys just don’t seem to stay killed. Let’s move on to a different set. Okay?
I love Lil ...more
Wilks’s well paced writing makes it easy to follow the action, so easy that new readers might be deceived into thinking they’re following along. This book reminded me of prior books in the series t ...more
