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.
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).
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.

With Rule and Lily firmly a couple, Cullen and Cynna married and pregnant, and Lily on personal leave, things seem to be going as well as our group can ever expect. But, of course, wherever they go, so does trouble.
In North Carolina, Lily and Rule get pulled into a ghost story that has some big implications for Rule in his dual-mantled state, so we get to learn a little more about the Leidolf clan and Rule’s position in it.
North Carolina is where Rule’s son, Toby, lives with his grandmother, Louise. Louise is ready to let Toby live with his father, but Toby’s mother has other ideas. It’s a real treat to meet Louise and see more of Toby. Toby has a part to play in the mystery, and it’s great to see him growing up and learning from his dad.
As always, the voice acting is amazing. I so identify these voices with these characters now that hearing the actors’ voices in a different series is a bit weird. Frequent audio listeners will tell you that consistency in voices is pretty important, especially in long-running series, and that hearing those voices elsewhere can take a little adjusting.
I’ve picked up the next book already and am eager to see what happens next. I’m really looking forward to the birth of Cynna’s baby and to seeing Toby become a regular character in the series.
