I've loved Lily and Rule's characters since I read the initial short story that birthed this complicated plot line and ultimately became the Lupi world. And with each following release, additional plot thread, new characters, near disaster and action filled finale it just keeps getting better and better.
The main characters are all well developed, the plot flows smoothly from scene to scene, and there's never a dull moment or dragging middle, meaning there's always plenty of action from beginning to end. You'll find there's great interaction between the major players(both new and old) and you're likely to see wolf-shifters, dragons, numerous villains, brownies, and other paranormal beings sprinkled throughout. What more could you want?
I don't have any idea what's going to happen next or how many books are planned in the series but I plan to go along for the ride and wait eagerly for the next book. I just wish Ms. Wilks wrote a little faster. I know this book just came out but I want the next one now. Please don't make me wait another year.(less)

Also the hierarchy of the pack is a little different too. Adding a human with a child as a mate and a former CDC doctor at that was a nice touch I really enjoyed. There's plenty of pain, angst, betrayal and danger, giving the story just about everything needed for an entertaining read. I hope the quality of the writing continues and the plots continue to build now that the initial world building has started. I look forward to the next release in the series. (less)

It expanded on Dan's character through his remembering his previous life as a spirit wolf, interweaving into the plot more details on some of their culture and beliefs. I thought this fit well with the concept of the spirit wolves and while it answered some questions, it opened up a few more that I expect will be covered in future releases.
The author did a nice job of pulling in a few old characters... especially Drew, Trent and Valerius and adding some new ones...the Magistrate and Linden's mother, and integrating them into the plot. There was also a nice mix of the paranormal and the emotional as Linden, Dan and Ash try to find their way through the minefield of a three-way relationship when two of them have been mates before. Add in some adversity and danger from the outside and you've got everything needed to keep a readers attention from beginning to end. I can't wait to the next release.(less)

I liked seeing Paulie's interaction with his Dad and his dedication to the research for the feral virus. I also appreciated his reluctance to jump into his mating with Marcus and Sebastian without thinking of the consequences. It was also nice seeing how patient Marcus and Sebastian was with Paulie, giving him the time he needed to realize his heart was involved, not just his hormone.
The integration of the previously met secondary characters was a nice touch, giving the story a sense of continuity. We also get that from the research story line. The action scenes are well plotted and scattered throughout, the ones at the end setting up the next book nicely. I look forward the Star Crossed Mates. (less)

I loved Fletcher, Caspian and Shade from the start and picking a house cat, gargoyle and Pegasus was totally unexpected...but I loved it. You wouldn't think that these three men could make a go it as mates but in truth they work perfectly. They're all wounded in their own way and need someone to love and despite from big bumps in the road...I mean assassins...the author creatively works through their personal problems and the dangers to find a happily-ever-after.
The story is well written, the characters nicely developed and the growth of their relationship believable. Enjoy.(less)

It's well written, has good flow and the characters of Misha and Ifan are well developed. I liked the change in the powers of the characters. That Misha was a human dreamwalker was a new and creative change in paranormal abilities. These new powers resulted in Misha being abused by his father for years and there is danger surrounding him and his mate at every turn.
There are plenty of secondary characters,Brodelyn,being the one I found the most interesting and who I'd like to see again in another book in the future. The villain...Misha's father is a convincing nutcase and the ending confrontation scene is handled well. Enjoy.(less)

I liked these two guys and Kirby being a spider money shifter was totally unexpected. Pairing him off with a self-conscious but powerful witch was odd but still worked. Throw in the whole male pregnancy thing and Amery's betrayal at the hospital and you've got plenty to keep you're attention.
I do wish that at times big, hunky and powerful Amery hadn't acted so much like a girl but between the hormones and low self-esteem I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Overall the story is well paced, the characters have good personalities and it has a satisfying ending. I enjoyed and I think you will too.(less)

He's got a warm and caring personality and the pain he's experienced over Manuel's abandonment is heart wrenching. The personal history of both men is interesting, the pace is smooth, there is plenty of conflict and passion and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing from beginning to end. That includes Davan's long-held secret. I have to admit that I didn't expect this one but it worked into the plotline beautifully. I wasn't expecting a Fae male to get pregnant in this series and the kids are adorable.
The part of the story revolving around what happened to keep Manuel and Davan apart was very well done. Terrifying and horrible but well done. Ms. Glenn really outdid herself with this one. It's a real keeper.(less)
