This book was a big fat surprise for me. The writing is rather lovely and I absolutely adored the lupi, especially Benedict and Cullen (woo Benedict, I'd love to be your Chosen any day).
I love Eileen Wilks' voice. Her attention and care with her characters really shines.
The world building was pretty awesome, unique in a way I didn't expect from a book about, essentially, werewolves (but the politically correct term is lupus).
My only issue was Lily. I love that she's a strong female character, I love her familial connections (especially Grandmother) but she is so stubborn about denying things she can't explain, particularly with the mate-bond with Rule and the lupi goddess. Normally this wouldn't frustrate me but Lily is a Sensitive (someone who can sense magic or lupus blood in people) so she knows that supposedly inexplicable things exist.
I give this book a 4 because I really like it but it fell short of love. I can tell you that the second book is even better and now I'm hooked on the series so Eileen Wilks is definitely worth looking into for urban fantasy lovers!
