    Filled with incredibly exciting twists and turns

    Death Magic (World of the Lupi #8) by Eileen Wilks There are authors and series that you consider auto-buy. This is one of them for me. I always look forward with great anticipation to the next World of the Lupi book. Eileen Wilks has created a fantastic world of fantasy and drama. In this latest installment Lily Yu and Rule Turner are in Washington D.C. to testify in front of a couple of subcommittees. As per normal for them nothing is ever quite that easy or straight forward. The "Humans First" senator that was on each of the subcommittees that Lily and Rule were to appear in front of is killed and Ruben Brooks (Lily's boss) is accused of the murder. With the help of Lupi sorcerer Cullen and various friends and allies Lily and Rule run through a gauntlet of trials to help establish Rubens innocence. Death Magic is filled with incredibly exciting twists and turns. I am eagerly awaiting the next adventure.

    I really like this urban fantasy series. While the core of the stories are about humans and werewolves, the universe works because Wilks has developed a sophisticated magic system which forms the Newtonian physics of her universe. It provides for demons, dragons, the fey court and potentially dozens of other magical creatures seamlessly coming together in the novels. There is always a good mystery and plenty of action, and the romances—especially the maturing romances—are depicted with great skill. My only complaint, and it seriously colored this latest novel for me, is that Wilks has an aversion against letting any of her heroes be involved in a bad relationship. It’s a small thing, but I found it jarring when a rather unpleasant woman in a previous novel turned into a simperingly sweet member of the cast in this one just because she’s married to an increasingly important character. But that won’t stop me from buying the next book in the series the first day it becomes available.

    Wilks series on werewolves [Lupi #8] just gets better & better!

    I read many paranormals, and this is one of the best series. Why? Some of my reasons; 1) Unlike Christine Feehan, Marjorie Liu, Nalini Singh, J. R. Ward and others, the main couple from the first book still leads the action, instead of each new volume featuring a new romantic pairing with the first ones just as background, though Ward does some ongoing relationships. After nine volumes Rule Turner, the "werewolf prince" and Lily Yu, the cop, are still going strong. And they're not even married yet.
    2) Most interesting system of magic, with lots of detail, since Lyndon Hardy, and it is even more detailed and "scientific" like Cullen Seaborne explaining the difference between a charm and a spell and an inborn Gifted magical result.
    3) Having different Clans among the Lupi allows for a sort of cultural diversity among the werewolves instead of just species variance like Tolkien ...where all elves tend to be one way. Here we have Lupi werewolves, Elves, gnomes, Great Sidhe, lesser Sidhe, demons, hellhounds, talking dragons, witches, sorcerers, ghosts, wraiths and who knows what next.
    4) A great diversity of bad guys and adversity in plotlines. In spite of a main monolithic villain in She Who Cannot be Named, like Meljean Brook's Satan, or Tolkien's Dark Lord, each book has a different sort of trouble, not all of them minions of the great evil one.
    5) An understated vein of humor that reminds me of Laurell K. Hamilton, that also mixes the arcane and mundane details of ordinary life. (Like Anita Blake explaining to her insurance company that her car was eaten by werehyenas) A little post-traumatic stress? Oh yeah, ever since that trip to hell... In this book the healer prescribes coffee as therapeutic. Or in Volume 9 "Give humans a button and they will push it"
    6) New plot twists just keep coming. After an early volume trip to hell and a later "sucked in to the alternate universe/ other world" plotline, I just did not see what kind of things could break new ground. SPOILER ALERT - Ruben Brooks becoming a werewolf, when we thought previously you had to be born one - would be a major plot twist. Prophecy and revelation revealed as well.

    So many good reasons to buy these books. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
