The above description may be brief and lacking, but this book is anything but.
Wilks has created such an amazing world of the Lupi. Book 7 in the series, I still can't get enough of Lily and Rule. They are my 2nd ALL-TIME favorite couple from a book series, and I've read a lot of series. Wilks has given us two characters and evolved them to be so memorable. Lily had so many reservations in life when she met Rule in book 1, everything she knew and had resolved to live by has been questioned and turned upside down. Lily has grown so much from the beginning, and watching her changes have been amazing. Rule takes live as it is, and handles it. He's the perfect match for Lily. You can’t get enough of them. Throw in the rest of the cast and you have one of my favorite teams.
The C couple (trying not to spoil) along with Rule's family and pack have complimented the whole story. These books are not just about the paranormal, while magic and fantasy are a large part of the books, mystery and thrills along with true crime investigation are the drivers that keep this series alive. Wilks researches to give the books a real feel, meeting with crime scene investigations, trauma nurses, and probably weres themselves (just kidding on that last part). This book, gives us insight to more of Rule's brother, Benedict. We also place Lily in the pack and out of the police world for a bit.
Wilks Lupi series is action-packed, charged with mystery and true crime solving. The base of the Lupi world she has created is imaginative and, yet, believable. She has a talent matched only by a few. I am on pins and needles awaiting Death Magic Book 8, due out this year also, Nov 2011.
