Magic by Eileen Wilks

Death Magic
World of the Lupi, #8
Eileen Wilks

Lily Yu and Rule Turner's latest adventure has them in Washington, DC, where Lily has to testify before a Senate subcommittee. While staying there, the couple is invited to a barbecue at Ruben Brooks' house. The party is a front for a meeting where Ruben is asking Lily to join the Shadow Unit. Lily doesn't want to get involved because she believes it to be in a gray area and like a good cop she sees everything in black or white.

Lily is also dealing with having been given the Wythe Mantle and is trying to pass it on to whomever The Lady wants. The mantle is causing harm to her since it is not meant for a non-Lupi. She is getting headaches and mini-strokes. This makes Rule a little upset towards the Lady.

When the senator who is questioning Lily is murdered and all clues point to her boss Ruben Brooks, Lily will stop seeing in all black and white. She will need to help Ruben with the help of Cullen.

There is a big surprise in this book, which I was not expecting but it completely makes sense and I love than Mrs. Wilks thought about it. Very refreshing idea.

Mrs. Wilks has had Lily and Cullen mature as a couple and I just wish that other authors would keep the magic without giving us an endless love triangle or multiple cliffhangers.

Also, I like that Lily is a smart heroine who can defend herself.

I did miss other characters from the series, like Lily's grandmother, Benedict, Cynthia. At least we get some Cullen.

I can't wait for the next installment. I STRONGLY recommend this series.

Mrs. Wilks- please write many more .......

4.5/5 Fangs
