Combined with that, the less unique details such as magic having returned to the modern world only recently feel less common. In this case I was so swept up in events that I wrote down almost nothing.
On the one hand that makes it tougher to go into a lot of detail in the review, but it also conveniently illustrates how thoroughly I was immersed in the events of Blood Lines. I applaud that kind of thoughtfulness in an author, because making it easier for new readers to jump right in also increases the number of people who might enjoy the series enough to dig up the previous books, as I did.

Just finished the 3rd installment of this series. I liked this one much better then the second book. It didn’t split up the main characters like the last book did so right there is a plus for this book. I initially thought this would have Cynna as the main character but actually she shares the honors with Lily.
Another plus for the book. In this book magic is spilling out into the world in an alarming manner. Rule gets attacked by a demon as do several other Lupi Rhos and heirs. All kinds of bad things start ejleen. And keep happening to the point that the world is in crisis. A task force made up of Lily, Rule, Cynna and Cullen among others is formed to investigate what is happening.
Essentially they bloodllines to save the world and do it before everyone is dead. Lots of action insues and lots more Lupi lore is explored.
Blood Lines (The World of the Lupi, Book 3): Eileen Wilks: : Books
It wasn’t the return to the murder mystery format I really liked from the first book, but still a mystery to solve as to why all the bad magic keeps happening. In addition to more of the romance between Lily and Rule, the book also explores the budding romance between Cynna and Cullen.
I enjoyed the book and will be reading the next book soon. I couldn’t agree more with the Amazon review submitted by Deborah Wiley. I had not read Wilks’ work in a while and I was somewhat lost until I checked back on my highlights from the previous two novels in the series.
I agree with Ms Wiley, by no means blooslines to pick up on the series here. In some ways, this could be considered the third book in a trilogy bloodlihes serves to gloodlines the series. There is no questioning Ms Wilks’ skill at character development, plot and action writing.
This is a great book, but I do think she could have smoothed out some of the rough edges wioks even those familiar with the series may find themselves a bit confused at times.
One Book Two
Given that, this is still a superb read that holds so much promise for the continuation of the series. It’s been eileem weeks since Lily got Rule out of Dis and brought dragons back to the world, not that the dragons stuck around once they returned.
Rule is still struggling with an imbalance between he and his wolf and dealing with latent emotions over failing and losing the Other Lily, but as Christmas approaches, Lily has sprung an early elieen on Rule and takes time out of her handshaking duties to take him to the symphony. Cynna Weaver is also in DC, between cases bloodilnes the moment but driven by a sudden sense of disquiet to get out of her hotel room and wander the cold city streets.
Cullen is further away, off He has so many questions! Each of them, and the whole of the rest of the world, are bloodlinss their own business, doing their own thing, living bloodllines own lives, when a powerful magical wind blows across the planet, surging from the nodes to whirl through and stir up all manner of magical phenomena before disappearing again with nary a whisper.
Leaving everything in its wake changed. Before Lily realizes the scope of what’s happened, there’s a large demon coming ejleen of the shadows intent on killing Rule. A demon that shouldn’t be able to be there at all. Soon it becomes clear that surviving the demon attack, while preferable to the alternative, is fraught with its own difficulties, and the four friends will have to come together not only to help out as the world starts to tip out of balance, but to stop Cynna’s old mentor Jiri from using the increasingly strong magic winds to power a demonic army against the enemy of She who will not be named, the Lupi.
Eileen Wilks continues to amaze and astound with her World of the Lupi series. Fraught with peril, littered with danger, steeped in mythology and history, this series is setting itself far apart and above most in a well-populated genre and doing it with exceptional, twisted, complex plots full of originality and detail, and likable, three dimensional characters who are rich and real and full of culture and personality, driven by fierce pride, love, and honor, and ripe with their own foibles, peccadilloes, and damage.
Unlike the first two books in the series which dealt primarily with Lily and Rule, Blood Lines is more evenly balanced between bloodlinrs four characters, with an alternating third person point-of-view narrative that smoothly transitions between scenes and characters.
Primary focus for the series are the female leads in the book, and while this one has been touted as more Cynna and Cullen’s story, I actually felt that Cynna and Lily both were well represented and saw fairly equal page time, with their individual strengths and independent – though not necessarily mutually exclusive – plot threads supporting them.
As in the first two books in the series, Rule and Cullen blooflines scenes in which the narrative focused on them, but they tend to wolks fewer and further between than those of Lily and Cynna. I love Cullen, though, and blooclines Grandmother Li Lei Yu, bkoodlines my favorite character in the series, and this book provided more of him than in the one previous, and offered up less damage to him than the first.
Blood Lines (Wilks novel)
I continue to admire the blending and masterful bloodlinees Wilks does with her plot threads, and the adept way she continues to define and explore her world for the readers, providing characters who are learning along with the reader and bloodpines more and more of the mythos and history of her world to wulks into focus as the story progresses.
There were things in this book, plot threads connecting to things I’d forgotten about and accepted as unimportant from the first book, that started to fall into place in this one, issues that I hadn’t thought to wonder about now being shown to be important. It’s an amazingly unique and incredibly impressive skill to be able to weave a comprehensive story arc with that much attention to detail and it gives this series a very epic feel – something more often found in high fantasy books than in urban fantasy.
Each of these books feel like another step up a giant and as yet not fileen fully visualized for the reader – I get the impression Wilks visualizes it just fine staircase leading towards the enlightenment of the series arc and as I progress up the stairs, I become more and more anxious to reach the top.
Even as I am more and more impressed with the journey and want to slow down to savor it. I still have a few issues with the book and the series. At times the exposition and weighty history of the clans and the explanations Lily and Cynna always ask for about every little thing do the pacing of the books a booodlines disservice.
There’s so much glorious information and such fantastic culture, spirituality, history, and even religion to impart in these books that it does occasionally overwhelm me as a reader. Wilks is extremely conscientious about her characters, bloovlines through them her readers, learning and understanding her created world on a very visceral and real level.
I can’t say I’d change that, even if I had that sort of mystical power, but it does present moments when I feel almost buried under it all. And I admit, once or twice I wanted to throttle Lily and Cynna and yell at them to shut up with the darn questions and just go with it. Because their questions are always answered. And they ask so darn many of them.
My reading preferences lie with reading about it as it happens, so I’ll bloodlinfs be totally thrilled with that aspect of this book or the series. I’m more than happy with everything else, though. The characters, blooodlines plot, the amazing world building, mythos, and history of it all completely bowls me over every time I pick up a fileen in the series and start reading.
It’s not always the most comfortable read, and I can’t say I love every little thing about it beyond what I mentioned above, there are also a few more minor issues that I had with this book but I deeply admire and respect Wilks for her ability to create it and thoroughly enjoy every delicious hour spent reading it.
If you’re new to the series, I strongly suggest you not start in the middle. I believe that you could, because certainly enough exposition is given to draw a reader into the series even with this third book. I read fileen letter to readers at the very beginning of the book, a letter from Lily Yu that reminds readers familiar with the series of the previous events, and also dips new readers into the world with a brief synopsis.
A new reader could start here and at least have the facts of the previous eleen. I wouldn’t recommend that, though. eleen
These books are full of the sort of details, layers, and connections that can only be truly appreciated if you start at the beginning and savor each piece as you ailks along, experiencing it with the characters you’ll come to love.
