Week 7 Reviews: Mortal Ties, Ritual Magic, Unbinding, Mind Magic

From Goodreads:
"Eileen Wilks is a truly gifted writer," (Romance Junkies) and her Novels of the Lupi have drawn readers into a seductive world of action, suspense, and passion. Now, FBI agent Lily Yu tracks a traitor into the darkest shadows yet… 

FBI agent Lily Yu is living at Nokolai Clanhome with her fiancé, lupi Rule Turner, when an intruder penetrates their territory, stealing the prototpye of a magical device the clan hopes will be worth a fortune--if a few bugs can be worked out . . . 

But the protoytpe can be dangerously erratic, discharging a bizarre form of mind magic—and it looks like the thief wants it for that very side effect. Worse, whoever stole the device didn't learn about it by accident. There's a Nokolai traitor in their midst. Lily and Rule have to find the traitor, the thief, and the prototype. One job proves easy when the thief calls them--and his identity rocks Rule's world.  

As they race to recover their missing property, they find Robert Friar's sticky footprints all over the place. Robert Friar--killer, madman, and acolyte of the Old One the lupi are at war with--an Old One whose power is almost as vast as her ambition to rock the entire world . . .

From Goodreads:
In Eileen Wilks's new Novel of the Lupi, FBI agent Lily Yu is about to confront a power even darker than magic…

On her 57th birthday, Lily's mother suddenly loses all memory beyond the age of twelve. Lily knows her mother was attacked by something more than magic. More . . . and darker.

When Lily and Rule discover that others suffered the same, mysterious loss—at the same time on the same night—their investigation into the darkness begins. Joining them is someone Lily never thought she'd see again: Al Drummond, who once tried to destroy her. He also happens to be dead. But the mysterious attacks were caused by a power strong enough to affect matters beyond the world of the living.

With some victims losing years of memory and others their lives, Lily must discover what on earth—or beyond—connects them.

From Goodreads:
In the newest Novel of the Lupi, the human and elven worlds are both about to come under attack… 

After questing through the sidhe realms with her ex-hellhound lover, Nathan, Kai Tallman Michalski has finally returned home. But she knows Nathan will eventually be called back to serve his queen—and Kai will have to decide whether to enter her majesty's service as well. Sure, the job comes with great bennies, but there's one big downside: she would have to swear absolute fealty to the Queen of Winter.

For now, though, Kai is glad to be home, and glad that Nathan completed his mission for his queen with surprising ease. But what seemed to be a quick conclusion turns out to be anything but. The two of them helped thwart the sidhe god of chaos—and he is not happy about that. He's got plans for them. Plans, too, for the sidhe who killed him some three millennia ago. Nor has he abandoned his plans for Earth, as they learn when chaos begins bursting out all over...

From Goodreads:
FBI agent Lily Yu's mind is a dangerous place to be in the latest Novel of the Lupi…

Thanks to the mindspeech lessons she's receiving from the black dragon, Lily is temporarily benched from Unit Twelve—until her brain acclimates and the risk of total burnout passes. At least she has her new husband, lupi Rule Turner, to keep her occupied.

But when her mentor calls in a favor and sends Lily to a murder scene, she's suddenly back on active status—despite the hallucinations she can't keep at bay. With one touch, Lily knows the man was killed by magic, but her senses don't warn her how far the conspiracy goes…

A shadowy force within the government wants to take Unit Twelve down, and they don't mind killing to achieve their goal. With none of her usual resources, Lily is up against impossible odds–because with her mind in disarray, she can't trust anything she sees. 

My Review:
I've really loved reading this series. So it was really fantastic to read more, and to catch up to what's currently been published. But now I've caught up and have to join the wait for the next book! Oh, well, that's better then not getting any new books at all!

Loved to have more time with Lily, Rule and the others! There were a lot of developments in this series, with relationship struggles, and new knowledge, and Kai and Nathan came back, too! And they got a full length novel, too! And there's going to be long term consequences of these books, too. We saw fall out from Ritual Magic in Unbinding, and Mind Magic is definitely going to have something, too, since the next book talks about dragons and secrets and is called Dragon Spawn!

This world is slowly showing us more of itself as the books go on-of Fae who became archetypes of gods, magic is used in new and unfamiliar ways, and it was just so incredible to read! And so enjoyable, this books are just amazing! And oh, that bad guy that might just be family to Lily!

There were two big things in these books. One was the source of magic-the friction of Order and Chaos. Something that Cullen was really excited to learn! The other, information about dragons and how they reproduce, since they're all male. And about their 3 births-the birth of the egg, the breaking out of the egg and getting a name, and then the final birth, of becoming a female. A bit strange, but fascinating to learn!

Such fantastic books, I just love this series, and I can't wait for more!
