This snippet takes place after Night Season (World of the Lupi, #4) and just before the free short story, Cyncerely Yours (World of the Lupi, #4.5). It’s more of a scene than a complete story, but I thought readers who've enjoyed the series might enjoy listening in on Cullen's counselling session with Father Michaels.
This is a short story to enhance the ending of NIGHT SEASON and it centers around Cynna and Cullen. Unless you're one of those people who doesn't mind spoilers, be sure to read NIGHT SEASON before you read this free short story!
FBI agent Lily Yu is in North Carolina with her lover and mate, Rule Turner, Lu Nuncio of the Nokolai werewolf clan. He is there to take custody of his son from the boy's grandmother. It's a purely personal trip until Rule, in wolf form, finds three bodies in a shallow grave. They carry the stench of death magic, which makes the murders a federal crime. Lily takes charge of the investigation and soon realizes that nothing adds up- not the motives or the main suspect, who is behind bars when death strikes again.
But murder, however bizarre, is an everyday affair for Lily, who was a homicide cop before being recruited into the FBI's Magical Crimes Division. A more personal shock arrives in the form of Rule's son's mother. Why would she now challenge Rule's plan to bring his son to live among the Nokolai? But family matters must take a backseat when the violence escalates, and there's no rhyme or reason for the next strike- by a killer who may not even be of this world.
So awesome to read these stories! I've really been enjoying this series, and these were no exception, there were things going on, and it was just plain awesome, and I want more! The fact that the first two are about Cullen and Cynna's wedding, is the best!
I really enjoyed Good Counsel and Cyncerly Yours, they were short, but they had some really great parts, making up amazing wholes! My one thing that I wish had happened, was her dad, he was a fair part of the previous book, and he either wasn't mentioned, or I missed the mention. And I wanted him there for that!
Mortal Sins takes us back to Lily and Rule, and in a pretty important time-for him to gain custody of his son. Of course there's complications, like the bodies with the death magic feel. And the pretty horrible mothers in this book! (There's two of them!)
Loved the ending, there was some breath-taking moments, but they pulled through, and everybody that we like who was alive got a pretty great ending, and even one person who wasn't, so yeah, that makes for a really great book!
Totally enjoyed reading these, and I need to read more of this series!
