Mortal Danger is the second book in the series and you really need to read Tempting Danger first in order to know what is going on in this book. Lily Yu is now working for the FBI Magical Crimes Division and is on a job to hunt down Harlowe, a cult leader bent on bringing an ancient evil into the world. Lily is mate-bound with Rule Turner - Werewolf Prince of his Clan and he shadows her everywhere to protect her. Also involved in this story is Cullen a sorcerer/werewolf and Cynna, a FBI agent that was involved with Rule 20 years ago.

While Lily is hunting Harlowe, he has set a trap for her, he has gone to Hell and returned with a demon, his plan is for the demon (Gan) to drink from Lily's blood and then possess her.

Lily and Harlowe come face to face and Lily's world as she knows it ends, she wakes up in a new reality and she doesn't seem to have her memory, but she is with Rule in Wolf form and the demon Gan. She knows she can trust Rule, but why is Gan protecting her?

My least favorite book in the series by far (mostly because of the heart-breaking yet strangely WTF? ending). This is where I stopped a few years ago until Wilks's short story in the Inked anthology brought me back to the series. It's helpful to read this to understand what's going on in the rest of the series, but if you chose to skip it, the major parts are summarized when relevant in later books. Lily's grandmother is by far the best part of this book.

The second part of the longer book that was planned. This basically carries on immediately after the first book, puts Lily and Rule into a lot of danger, and in Hell, and lets them acquire some interesting allies.It bounces along quickly and smoothly, integrating its elements nicely and really finding its feet.

I'm enjoying this series, even if this book was weaker than the first (tempting danger) The relationship between Lily and Rule progresses. The war between the female goddesses escalates and there are dragons. What more could you want? It dragged down a bit in the last third, it's very plot heavy, but you just have to love Rule, and Lily does not turn into a TSTL heroine. Unlike many fantasy romances, the fantasy aspect here is very highly worked out. Wilks clearly loves the world she's created and thinks about it alot. I'm looking forward to book 3!

I've had this ever since it came out, but for various reasons I never actually started reading it - which is strange as I loved Tempting Danger and the short story Originally Human.I loved this too. It was great to see more of Lily and Rule - and a 'soulmate' kind of relationship where they still have to work on the relationship was a nice change from the way the concept is often written.Cullen is back and new character Cynna is a fascinating introduction. Considering she's human with a dubious past, the fact her future seems to be firmly bound to the lupi should make life interesting.The story begins as Lily's sister's wedding - the same one her mother kept hassling her about not having a partner for in Tempting Danger - where she is attacked by a demon that attempts to possess her. The attempt fails, at least mostly, but kicks off the events of the book.Lily and Rule are still looking from Patrick Harlowe from the last book and I was rather surprised when they found him only half way through. However, it soon became clear that Harlowe was only a minor player and once again the Aza goddess is the real enemy. She now has demon allies and Rule and Lily - or part of Lily - end up dragged into the demon realm.This is a complicated story - and not really a romance despite it saying so on the cover - that deals with relationships, faith, identity and what it is that makes one "human".I'm delighted to discover the next book will be published in January, so I guess there was an up side to my long delay. Now I don't have so long to wait.

I've heard some people say this one wasn't as good as the first one, but I have to disagree. It was excellent. Although that 'paranormal romance' on the spine is a bit misleading, which may be what they were responding to. This is much heavier on the paranormal than on the romance bit. In fact, the romance between Lily & Rule is pretty much a given, and it's just a matter of them adjusting to it. The story is more about Lily being attacked by a demon, and About the nature of identity. More of Cullen, from the first book, and an introduction of Cynna, who I think will end up with him, from the sparks they strike off each other. I LOVE this series, & think it's one of the best of the several new paranormal series I've read. Can't wait for the next one.

What I Liked: Lily and Rule continue to build a real relationship around the forced mate bond. They argue and make up and learn to appreciate each other. So while the reasons for the relationship are forced, they are creating something real. One of the scenes I enjoyed the most came at the beginning of the book. Lily and Rule are at a reception for Lily’s sister’s wedding. From Lily’s point of view, we get to see more of her relationship with her family, including a domineering cousin and Lily’s younger sister, Beth. From Rule’s point of view, we learn how he feels about his public persona. Rule is getting groped by an older auntie of Lily’s, and though Rule is patient and kind with the old woman, he does think about how often he’s objectified because of his semi-royal, playboy reputation. It’s hard to feel too sorry for Rule, being gorgeous and famous; but, it’s not often we get to hear the perspective of a man who’s being objectified, so it is refreshing. I like the “relationship” between Cynna and Cullen, too. They are spiky with each other, two dominate personalities circling each other, taking each other’s measure. Finally, we get to learn more about the werewolf culture and spiritual practices, which I find very interesting. What I didn’t like: I didn’t care for the portrayal of Hel and demons – particularly because of all the sexual references that I didn’t feel were necessary. It felt as if the author was trying to titillate a fifteen year-old boy with the overt sexual descriptions. I also wasn’t too fond if the splitting of Lily – one in our world and one in Hel – and the solution to bringing her back together. That felt fairly contrived to me. Overall: I felt this book was more Urban Fantasy than the last one, focusing more on the adventure than on the building of the relationships. I can’t say I loved it, but I’m going to stick with the series for a few more books, at least, believing there more good stuff to come. Purchased.
