Pregnancy has turned FBI Agent Cynna Weaver's whole life upside down. Lupus sorcerer Cullen Seabourne is thrilled to be a father, but what does Cynna know about kids? Her mother was a drunk and her father abandoned his family. Or so she's always believed...

As Cynna is trying to wrap her head around this problem, a new one pops up in the form of a delegation from another re

I think this is my favorite so far.
3.5 Stars


Boy, was I relieved to see the pacing improve in this book! The last one had me a little nervous about a new writing trend, but it was back to normal here. We didn't suffer from constant pov shifts, although there were some that didn't overwhelm the story.

I'm still not as interested in Cullen and Cynna as I was in Lily and Rule. The actual overreaching story arc still hooked me, but I didn't really work up much enthusiasm for the actual relationship

3.5/5; 4 stars; B+

Night Season takes this series on a bit of a detour to another realm. I enjoyed the adventure and the different kinds of creatures but wasnt 100% sure of how the medallion and quest really fit in with Lily and Rule and the Lupi story arc. It was fun to see Gan find a purpose though (besides hunting "fishies").

It’s interesting to me that so many people liked this book a little less than the first three, because it features Cynna and Cullen instead of Lily and Rule. I think that’s actually why I liked it more. It’s not that I dislike the original lead characters; it’s just that their romance was a bit lacking –at least for me. They’re mates. They really have no choice but to be together. It’s different with Cynna and Cullen. There is no physical imperative for them to be a couple. Their relationship ...more

Cynna is a Finder, and a damn good one, able to find almost everything over a vast range. It’s a power that is high in desire – including by the Gnomish rulers of Edge, another realm that is now accessible after the magic flares.

The Realm is in danger – but the ambassadors from Edge are certainly not to be trusted and may have their own agenda.

On top of this, Cynna has to deal with her feelings on another matter – she’s pregnant, and the father is a sorcerer who is essential to their plan for Ed
3.5-3.75 stars. Night Season centers on Cynna and Cullen. Rule and Lily appear briefly, but it is not their story. Cynna and Cullen are two of my favorite characters in Wilks' World of the Lupi world. The world in Night Season is lushly developed, the details are just enough but not overwhelming. There is a decent amount of humor and some decent sexy time. But despite my enjoying these aspects of the book, the story seemed rush, wrapped up too quickly and was decent but not the best I read in ...more
While I enjoyed this installment, it wasn't my favorite. I did enjoy the focus shift to Cynna and Cullen, the introduction of some very interesting characters, and Gan. She stole a lot of the scenes in this one. Her love of chocolate seems almost as strong as mine. :)

I look forward to reading Wilks' free short about "the event" (CYNCERELY YOURS) and seeing what one of the side-effects of the magical shift will have on the Lupi going forward.

Such an intelligent series. Every time I read a book in this series, I am amazed and intrigued all over again. This book continues with Cullen and Cynna as they travel to a magical realm called Edge. She is trying to find a medallion that is messing with the magical realms and he follows her. The Edge is a really interesting place and they encounter all sorts of mayhem and magic while there. Loved it!

Finder and FBI Agent Cynna Weaver is just starting to accept that she's pregnant, that she and the lupus Cullen Seaborne are going to have a child, when a delegation from the alternate realm of Edge show up in a fountain in a Washington D.C. mall. Offering trade with Earth for assistance in locating a medallion that controls the balance in Edge, the members of the delegation are cagey and secretive, and refuse to speak openly without a magical shield in place.

So far, this has been the best book in the series. This book primarily features Cynna and Cullen. Rule and Lily make bookend appearances in the story, though don't worry.

This book picks up about a month after the end events of Blood Lines as well as the events in the anthology On the Prowl. Kai and Nathan's story continues in this book and "Inhuman" is a nice lead in.

Cynna is still coming to terms with being pregnant. After denying the possibility for so long she finally accepts that she is ind

Well, it turns out that I liked this one a lot more than I was expecting to. The only real negative was Cullen. Now granted, that's a big negative, given that he's the hero. He just doesn't interest me at all - I find him to be an unjustifiably arrogant, selfish, bossy know-it-all jerk.

Alright, so now that that's out of the way, let's talk about the good stuff.

Cynna. She's pretty great. I liked watching her come to find her self-confidence as a leader. She cares about her people, and

This is my favorite story of the series so far. I really enjoyed the story, the romance, and suspenseful moments. Cullen and Cynna are an interesting couple. He's a sorcerer lupi stripper. (The occupation does not play a role in the book.) She an FBI agent and gifted Finder. Gan, the demon introduced in Mortal Danger, is growing a soul and the feeling attached to it. Whereas I found this little demon annoying in previous books her moments in this installment were touching.

Fourth book in the World of the Lupi series and most of it happens in an offshoot of Faerie called the Edge. Sound familiar? Well this one was written first. LOL.

The first 3 books center around Rule, wolf heir of the Nicolai Pack and FBI Agent Lily Yu, but this one moves to FBI Agent Cynna Weaver, a Finder and Cullen Seaborne, a wolf sorcerer of the Nicolai Pack.

All 4 of them are recovering from the events of the previous book when a trio of beings, led by a Gnome appear in a shopping center, lo

I think this is my favorite book of the series so far. Yes, the world is extremely complicated so there's still a lot of explaining going on, but I like how complicated it is. If something is too easy to figure out, it gets boring real quick. You hear that hipsters? We get you now, you can stop.

This should help..

So in this book we have Cullen and Cynna traveling to a different dimension to retrieve a magical artifact for some elves. Along with their not-a-demon friend who loves swimming, they al

While we get some time with Lily and Rule, this is Cynnia and Cullen's book. At the end of the book, my dislike for Cynnia had turned into genuine like and my reaction to Cullen went from who's a good boy, my little sullen wolfie will be a good boy to I want him for myself. Drool. Sigh.

At first they had looked incompatible to me, the author trying to fix them up just to get rid of the third wheel feely or for plot conveniences. But they fit. It is a different yet even more engaging fit than Lil

I still don’t want to jinx it, so I’m going to continue to refrain from saying that this series is great...There are 12 books in this series so far and that is more than enough room for things to go left. So I’m just taking each book one at a time and enjoying them as they come.

Night Season is book four in the World of Lupi series and is a little bit different than the previous three books in that, the majority of the book is focused on the adventures of Cynna and Cullen. Cynna is a

Night Season is the fourth release of the World of the Lupi series by Eileen Wilks. This time around the story centers, mostly, on Lupine sorcerer Cullen Seabourne and FBI Agent Cynna Weaver. Weaver works for the Magical Crimes Division of the FBI and is also a Finder (a person who is able to find things and people that are missing). She still refuses to come to terms with the fact that she’s having a baby with Cullen. She goes through a period of self-doubt until finally she gets a positive ...more

Unlike the books that come before this one in the series, Night Season takes a different direction entirely. First, it makes Cynna and Cullen the main characters and secondly, it takes them on an adventure into a whole new realm with not much to do with Lupi.

The story begins with a Prologue introducing a new couple of characters, Nathan and Kai, and their mysterious mission to save a realm through Kai because of her emerging gifts. Then it does a flip to Cynna Weaver. In the last book, Cullen ge

Genre: Paranormal Romance

I bought this book to find out what happened to Kai and Nathan after the novella in _On the Prowl_. It was rather disappointing - Kai and Nathan appear in maybe 20 pages. They are the des ex machina of the plot but still, you barely see them and there is no relationship development between them.

Beyond that, the book was a disappointment. The setting is slightly different then most werewolf-paranormal romances: recently there's been a change and magic has come back to ea

Cynna and Cullen are tricked into opening a gate to the Edge realm. Lured by intimations of open trade with the human earth realm, the government and demons from the Edge work together to enlist Cynna's help. She is further intrigued by information of her father being alive there.
Cynna is coping with a new life and new life with Cullen when she decides to take on the finding assignment and locate a lost medallion for the demons. Not about to let Cynna out of his sight, Cullen is

I read the first 3 books in this series fairly back to back. All in February. But I kept putting this one off, because it switched focus from Rule and Lily, to Cullen and Cynna. I thought it would feel very different from the first 3 but it didnt. We already knew Cullen and Cynna pretty well, and they were still dealing with the shifting magic, and a fair amount of lupus issues. It has its place in the this series. And I really grew to love them much more. I already really enjoyed Cullen's ...more

Edge, the world that Cynna, Cullen, and a few others get pulled off to, is an interesting locale. The only thing that keeps it stable is a medallion that’s been stolen, and that will destroy the minds of anyone who picks it up who isn’t supposed to (and it chooses its own bearer). Cynna has been brought here to use her Gift to Find the medallion. It’s gone far enough away, of course, that Finding it will be tricky at best. And of course there are plenty of dangerous things to get caught up in ...more
