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...more

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...more
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...more

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...more

A magic medallion...

A diplomatic envoy from another realm...

A dragon who doesn’t like to share...

...and a tester that turns the wrong color when she pees on it. FBI Agent Cynna Weaver’s life is a little too full right now. She’s pregnant--and lupus sorcerer Cullen Seabourne is the father. Cullen is thrilled. Cynna can barely utter the p-word. What does she know about kids? Her mother was a drunk. Her father abandoned them. Or so she’s always believed...

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. A shield that only C...more

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...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!

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...more

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...more
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...more
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...more

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...more

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. (The story can be found in the anthology Cravi...more
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...more

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 ind...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...more

This has been my favorite of Wilks' Lupi series. I am not sure if it is because I am getting used to visiting other realms in fantasy fiction, or because I feel she wrote it better. A previous book in this series travelled to Dis, analogous to Hell, but it was so foreign and weird that I had trouble understanding the whole point. In this installment, we travel to Edge, a high-magic realm that is colonized by many species -- namely gnomes, elves, and a warrior race called Ahk -- all creatures wit...more
I was hoping for a continuation of the plot line that developed in Blood Lines. But this went in a completely different direction. Lily and Rule only show up in the first few chapters. The story is mostly told by Cynna and Cullen and there is an odd bit every now and then from the perspective of Gan, which is always amusing.
They travel to Edge, another realm that is high on magic, elves and gnomes. They travel around a lot on barges and horses and have battles... Made me wonder if Wilks had just...more

Each book that I read in the World of the Lupi series just gets better and better. Book 4 centered on Cynna Weaver and Cullen Seaborne and mostly takes place in the realm of Edge which has a Night Season that lasts several weeks, a Dawning that lasts a few days, and a Day Season that lasts several weeks in turn. Cynna, Cullen, and an assortment of others, including Gan and Steve Timms, are on a quest for a magical medallion that in the wrong hands drives the possessor mad and could disrupt the s...more
Pros: New characters to ‘play with’
Cons: I wanted this book to include more about the pack

First let me begin by saying how much I love reading Eillen Wilks. For anyone looking for a great werewolf/paranormal series please check her out. The only negative I have to say is that some of her previous books are a little hard to find in book stores. However if you can find them online they are worth it.

That being said, this book branches off from the main series telling the story of Cynna and Cullen’s...more

Cynna and Cullen

So I didn't really care for this book. I like Cynna and Cullen but I like them as secondary characters to Lily and Rule. I can't say that I cared a single bit what their story is. I like having background info on them because it shapes how they are in the overall arc but as far as the future for them, meh.

I was annoyed by the wedding plot. If anyone should be getting married it should be Lily and Rule considering they are mate bonded and it is not like Rule would ever st...more
Of all of the four books in the series so far, Night Season was my favorite. Wilks managed to enthrall me with the increasingly interesting growth of the characters we were introduced in earlier novels. This book provides more insight into Cullen and Cynna's characters. I found their conflicted relationship both humorous and endearing. Gan (former demon) has evolved from a self absorbed creature to one of commpassion and caring. With all of the rides on the emotional roller coaster you would thi...more
Another enjoyable entry by Wilks. While I haven't loved Cynna, I do like her, and I'm coming to enjoy her more. I like her and Cullen. I like her view on their relationship, how she doesn't throw herself at him, doesn't exactly resist him, per se, but tries to be more realistic.

I would have preferred just a little bit of a different ending. I wanted them to get together at the end (and I won't say whether or not it happened), but I didn't like the qualification thrown in about the "ancient stor...more
