Mortal Danger – World of the Lupi
by Eileen Wilks
Release Date: Jul 1, 2013
Approximate Running Time: 8 Hours
Former cop Lily Yu has her sister's wedding to attend, a missing magical staff to find, and now must deal with her grandmother's decision to return to the old country. Lily could turn to the man she's involved with for advice, but for all the passion that flares between them, she doesn't really know Rule Turner--she's just bound to him for life. Rule happens to be a werewolf, and Lily wonders just how far she can trust him.
Another great listen….. I don’t want to give to much detail as I might give spoilers so I’m going to go with what I liked…..there was not really anything I did not like just some bits that creeped me out at times, like in the prologue where we meet Gan, the description of Xitil and his/her court….gah it was icky. I guess one thing that did bug me was the secrecy if Lily is Rule’s “chosen” why the delay in explaining things. I know that there is a larger story arc and world building but it bugged me.
What I liked – mostly at the beginning where we get to see more of Lily’s relationship with her family… and I just need to say her domineering cousin Freddie was such an ass….anyway the family dynamic was pretty interesting. I also liked that we get to learn more about the werewolf culture and their society. I also really liked Gan, she was very interesting. Lily being split was also interesting weird but interesting. Dragon’s are introduced in this one and end up making their way out of Hel/Dis and it will be interesting to see what role they will play in future books. I also hope we get to learn more about Grandmother, such a secretive and interesting person
While I enjoyed this one, something about it just did not pull me in like the first one, not really sure what it is, I will continue to the next one and keep my fingers crossed that it pulls me in like the first book did.
While there were a few new additions to the story, the introduction of Cynna and the relationship between her and Cullen was fun to watch….two strong personalities clashing….can’t wait for more.
As usual, the narration was great, and I can’t say enough how much I love a full cast narration….it just makes the story so much more entertaining. So if you have not yet started the series or this book….get the graphic audio and get swept up in the World of the Lupi.
