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
Fangs for the Fantasy
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
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

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.

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.

In this story, Cynna f
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
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 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

Out of all of Eileen's Lupi books, this one is my least favorite and not just because it wasn't about Lily and Rule. In Night Season, Cullen, Cynna, Gan and several others have been thrown into what is called "the Edge" by a sort of unscrupulous Gremlin. Magic runs rampant in this new realm as well as many things that go bump in the night.

It was difficult for me (since I'm re-reading these back to back) to go from reading a series about werewolves and cops to an entire book based on magic and p
This book is mainly told from Cynna and Cullen's perspectives. Even though Cynna knows she is pregnant, she is still holding on to every shred of denial she can, including telling herself she can keep Cullen at an arms length. When she and Cullen get kidnapped into another realm called Edge, she must learn to trust him, for he seems to be the only one who cares at all if she lives or dies. She is forced on a search for a magical medallion that controls the seasons in Edge, but not everyone wants ...more
Eileen Wilks keeps delivering in this World of The Lupi series 4th installment. Our favorite characters are back and better than ever before.
You know those series, where you get tired of the main characters? Not the case here.
Introduced earlier in the series Cynna and Cullen are becoming even more believable and closer to each other -as we were all hoping. The reason why I love Wilks' characters so much is because they wake compassion in you. One goes through their inner conflicts with them and
Luke warm at best for me, this book centers around the pregnant Cynna Weaver. Cullen, who had long since given up on the idea of ever being a father thanks to the low fertility rate in the Lupi community, is over the moon about the pregnancy. Cynna, on the other hand, isn’t quite so sure. She is just finally admitting to herself that she is pregnant and she has no idea what to do about it. Cynna didn’t have a great childhood and she isn’t sure she knows enough about children to be a mother. At t ...more

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 chara ...more
Was supposed to get a quick refresher of what happened in this book so I could get back to the rest of the series and finally read book 9, Mortal Sins. Should've known better. Skimming just isn't possible when it comes to Eileen Wilks's writing, even if an entire book is focused on one of my least favorite characters of her World of Lupi universe.

I am glad I read this one though. Cynna left such a bad taste in my mouth after the last book that I probably would've continued viewing her with preju

Note: A few hours after revoking Cullen's book-crush status, I hereby declare it again ;D I seriously love that guy. <3

Squee I was delighted that unlike Blood Lines, there was more Cynna and Cullen, and not so much of Lily and Rule. They both needed this one, IMO because they have so much stuff to sort out, like the baby, as well as trust issues.

I was more prepared this time round to be thrust on a whole new realm with different species of the Blood. In book 2, the whole journey to Dis caught

This fourth book in Eileen Wilks's imaginative werewolves and magic-wielding FBI agents series focuses not on the protagonists of the first three books, Lily Yu and Rule Turner, but on two characters who have been supporting players in the past: magician Cynna Weaver and sorcerer-lupus Cullen Seabourne. I've had a soft spot for Cullen ever since he appeared in the novelette, "Only Human," a prequel to Tempting Danger, the first novel in this series.

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
