4.0 out of 5 stars Nice continuation of the series March 8 2009
By Fathom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm glad the plot returned w/ the original characters of Rule Turner and Lily Yu as the leading characters in this book.

FBI agent Lily and her werewolf mate Rule are in a local town trying to deal w/ the custody rights of his son w/o the media catching a whiff of the news. Inadvertantly, on this personal trip Lily gets involved in serial murder case in the area. Being the "touch sensitive" that she is, she knows that the murders are magical related and therefore part of the FBI MCD jurisdiction.

I actually enjoyed the plot of this book very much. The other books were more fantasy/paranormal types. However, this story despite the paranormal aspects of it had a good police murder mystery plot.

The only thing I would have liked more would be for more initimate scenes. However, the plot was very good and found myself reading it in one sitting.

I would highly recommend this book, but only to those who have read the previous books otherwise the characters and the background history would be too confusing.

5.0 out of 5 stars strong urban fantasy police procedural Feb. 3 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
FBI Agent Lily Yu and her soulmate California's Nokolai clan werewolf Rule Turner are in North Carolina planning to bring home his son, Toby, who lives with his grandma. While on a wolf run near the Lediolf clan's home, he smells death. He follows the scent to a grave containing three corpses and the lingering infection of death magic.

Since Agent Lily is already at the crime scene, she is put in charge of the official investigation. Another "death magic" homicide occurs; leading Lily to believe that something new at least to her is the serial killer. Werewolf sorcerer Cullen tells Lily someone has created a deadly wraith, but offers no clues how ends the reign of terror.

The latest Agent Yu "Mortal" urban fantasy police procedural is refreshed by the family element and by a unique serial killer who the FBI operative, her werewolf significant other and the sorcerer have no earthly idea how to defeat it. Thus solving the whodunit turns out relatively easy while solving how to prevent further deaths proves seemingly impossible. Eileen Wilks provides a strong entry in her Yu thrillers (see MORTAL DANGER).

5.0 out of 5 stars Mortal Sins May 13 2009
By MNix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lily Yu is with her lover and mate, Rule Turner, in North Carolina on personal family business. Lily is a member of the FBI's Magical Crimes Division and when you are mated to the lu nuncio of the Nokolai werewolf clan, nothing is as simple as taking time off to deal with personal issues. The trip is so that Rule can gain custody of his son and deal with a little bit of clan business.

When bodies are found and death magic is apparent (a federal crime), Lily is pressed into service to discover what is going on in the North Carolina woods. Nothing is adding up and suspects are becoming victims as the investigation goes on. If that wasn't enough to confuse things, the mother of Rule's son has appeared and she has an agenda of her own. Lily and Rule have to use every one of their advantages and bring in friends to solve the crime and keep the entire family safe and together forever.

Mortal Sins adds yet another chapter in Lily and Rule's lives. This time they have to track down an illusive murderer while dealing with unexpected issues concerning the custody hearing for Rule's son. I love the twisty turns that happen when Lily and Rule have to combine both their responsibilities and try to stay within their respective rules. Lily and Rule become more and more in love as the book unfolds and the danger come up close and personal. There were several places where I was wondering what would happen next and I have to admit that I could not figure out who was the real criminal was or how close it would come to Rule and Lily. I was very happy and shocked by the ending and can't wait for the next chapter in Rule and Lily's lives. Mortal Sins is a great paranormal suspense filled book that will keep you scratching you head. While it could be read alone, I would probably suggest reading the series in order as each book is building the lives of Lily, Rule and their friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, Love Love this Series! April 3 2010
By M. Grigsby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Eileen Wilks has quickly become one of my favorite author. Her ability to weave an intriguing story using atypical heroes and heriones is outstanding. I just love Lily's grandmother and unique abilities. The world of the Lupi is unlike no other werewolf tale. FBI agent Lily Yu (also a sensitive) and her Lupi lover, Rule Turner (La Nuncio of the Nokolai Lupi clan) go to North Carolina to take custody of Rule's son. A simple task you would think; however, the road is paved with peril and intrique. Rule's son's mother enters the picture ensuring there will be an obstacle and three dead bodies appear with the stench of death magic which takes up quite a bit of Lily's time. Oh what a tangled web and I just loved it! I gobbled up all six novels in the series within a week and now I find myself in the precarious position of having to wait until next year for the next book. Oh well, I guess I will just have to read them again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best One Yet! Oct. 15 2010
By A Book Obsession.. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lily and Rule are back in the forefront in this book. What started out as a trip to pick up Rule's son, Toby, quickly turns into a huge mess when Rule stumbles upon three bodies stinking of death magic. Of course Lily is assigned the case, but she quickly learns things are not as they seem. To complicate things further, Toby's mother is now trying to contest Rule gaining custody. Adding into the trouble is the mess with Rule holding both the Leidolf and Nokolai mantles, and all the politics that ensue. When Rule tries to handle some of his duties to Nokolai, the mate bond between Lily and Rule throws a wrench in those plans.

I really do not like the way people treat Lily in this book because of her relationship with Rule. Its a wonder to think that she hid her gift all those years to shield herself from such ridicule, but in the end it comes anyway for a different reason. It just goes to show that there will always be prejudices no matter the race or species for that matter. At least Lily has a tough skin, and it seems to bother me more than her, but perhaps I've just developed a major soft spot for her.

This book kept me guessing the entire time. The brief glimpses into the "killer's" mind were very intriguing and made only want to read faster to figure out who it was. In the end, the culprit turned out to be a really interesting and unexpected twist. To stop the killings some hard choices had to be made, but I think even with the consequences things will work out in the end for the better.

The ending of this book was by far the best so far of any books in The World of the Lupi series. However, while there was definite happiness, I think the ending events are going to reek major havoc in future books. I cannot wait to read the next book to see how things work out. Some series start to fizzle after a few books, but this one is the opposite. It is definitely getting better and better the further into I get.
