Call me shallow, but I am having a lot of fun with this series:) And in this volume we finally got our much needed dose of Cynna and Cullen, who are the main narrators here. They have to go to another dimension called The Edge, and have to leave Lily and Rule behind. However, my favorite character in the whole series so far, the soon to be ex-demon Gan went with them and assisted in a search for a weather-seasons-earth controlling magic medallion, which unfortunately needs just the righ

I think this is my favorite book of the series so far. Yes, the world is extremely complicated so there's still a lot of explaining going on, but I like how complicated it is. If something is too easy to figure out, it gets boring real quick. You hear that hipsters? We get you now, you can stop.


This should help..

So in this book we have Cullen and Cynna traveling to a different dimension to retrieve a magical artifact for some elves. Along with their not-a-demon friend who loves swimming, they al

While we get some time with Lily and Rule, this is Cynnia and Cullen's book. At the end of the book, my dislike for Cynnia had turned into genuine like and my reaction to Cullen went from who's a good boy, my little sullen wolfie will be a good boy to I want him for myself. Drool. Sigh.

At first they had looked incompatible to me, the author trying to fix them up just to get rid of the third wheel feely or for plot conveniences. But they fit. It is a different yet even more engaging fit than Lil

***SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUS BOOKS***

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").

As I said for the perivous book: each one adds to the world-building! Here we meet the Edge: a strange world that I percieved as a world where all others intersect.
I am very curious to know when we will discover more about Kai and Nathan's role in the whole story and when they will reappear! :)
I love Gan and her fishies too! She's such a great character!

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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

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 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

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

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

I picked up the anthology "On the Prowl" and absolutely loved Ms. Wilks contribution. But when I tried to continue reading about those interesting characters in "the next book" they were supposedly featured in (according to the author, via the aforementioned anthology), which was "Night Season". I read the few pages of the story that I got the book for, then I got to be bored out of my mind reading about some pregnant CIA agent. When it seemed that "my" characters were a long time coming back, a ...more

4.5 stars (don't you wish we could do that?)
Full of surprises, this book takes some of our favorite characters, such as Cullen, Cynna, Ruben and Timms, and drops them into an alternate realm called Edge. This "world" has three month nights alternating with three month days. All of this is controlled by a Medallion, that has gone missing. Without it, the Edge will not experience day again. Cynna, who is a gifted "Finder" was brought here to find the Medallion. Much more but don't want to spoil it

It was fine. Mission Accomplished in Edge, and all that. I thought the ending was a bit rushed (and there was a proliferation of battles fought 'off page', so to speak, which felt a bit odd) but generally it was a useful episode in a longer series rather than a stand-alone triumph. The story got moved on a bit. Cynna got a bit more pregnant. Cullen and Cynna got a bit more in love. The Lupi world accommodated a bit more magic, and species from Fae central casting got a look in.
