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 is ...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 th ...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.

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

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!

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

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

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

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.

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.

I admit to being slow to warm to this series. There is no question that Ms Wilks is a masterful writer. I must admit that, at times, I have to go back and reread some of the previous pages to fully understanding what is going on at a given point in the book. I have no doubt, this is the best book of the series so far. The reader gets to know Cullen Seabourne and Cynna Weaver, usually more peripheral characters, both of whom have talents that are quite magical. Seaborne is not only a werewolf, bu ...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 al ...more

Cynna’s trying to cope with being pregnant and Cullen’s presence in her life. She’s attracted to him, but is his attention just for the baby or for her?

Meanwhile as the world is coping with the massive arrival of magic, visitors from the Edge arrive to negotiate ‘trade’ but their real goal is much craftier.

Cynna, Cullen and their friend’s journey and adventures in the Edge are exciting. I enjoyed the chase through the mountains, but the city and the Chancellery were too weird and uncomfortable.

Nice addition to the series, though I feel it's helpful to read Inhumanfirst, as the characters of Kai and Nathan play a role in NS, but not absolutely necessary.

So this is Cynna & Cullen's story. how they both deal with the fact that she's unexpectedly pregnant, and how they help save another dimension. Since the magic surges, and return of dragons, gates are reopening to other worlds, and one of them needs Cynna's help to find a medallion that basically regulates the weather.

As many of you know, I’m making my way through the World of the Lupi series by Eileen Wilks in the format. I know there are some vast differences of opinion about full-cast audios in the audiobook listening world, but I have to say, I love it. I haven’t experienced many other audios like this, however, so I may be spoiled – does a really good job with voices and sound effects, and I don’t know if the quality is typical or not.
