Rule is forced to stay in Washington, DC, because of another premonition. Thus when he is arrested on suspicion of having child porn, Lily isn't there. And, by the time his lawyer gets him out of jail, Lily has disappeared. Despite being under house arrest with a monitor on his ankle, Rule is determined to get to Ohio and find his missing mate.
Meanwhile, Lily and the dying werewolf who insisted on going with her are being kept under a magically induced sleep which Lily had thought was impossible since she's generally immune to magic. She had been kidnapped by brownies to help the dragon who is missing from Washington, DC, with a major problem.
A good part of this story is told by Demi who is seventeen, has Asperger's. and is a hacker genius. We learn that she is an orphan who was taken in by Mr. Smith and placed in his home for Gifted children. Demi is also a touch sensitive who identified other Gifted children for Mr. Smith. However, she went away to college at sixteen and, when she returned to the home, she learned that Mr. Smith had been lying to her about his purpose.
Mr. Smith has now launched a campaign to discredit Ruben and his Unit 12. He is the one who is behind the false accusation against Rule since he also wants the werewolves discredited, hunted, and destroyed. Mr. Smith considers himself a patriot who has the best interests of the country in his mind and feels that he is the only one who can serve those best interests. His plan puts the Dragon Accord in danger and he simply doesn't realize how powerful the dragons are and how necessary they are to the smooth running of the world.
This was a very good episode in the series. We learned lots of interesting new things about dragons. We also saw Lily learn a new skill. I especially enjoyed the portions told from Rule's point of view because they showed the world as werewolves see it. The brownies were a fun new species that I don't recall from earlier books.
Fans of the series won't want to miss this great new episode.
Wilks never seems to disappoint. With her strong world building abilities, I am one second from away from being convinced she is some kind of wizard world building genius. Creating vivid images and unique challenges for her characters after the twelfth book in a series is a hard thing to do. Pointing out things that should have been obvious, yet never occurred to me, makes me giddy and pulls me that much deeper into the story.
Brownies. Dragons multiplying. Evil GIANT JERKS (edited for amazon). YEP. Mind Magic takes up another step past just the world of the Lupi. As Lily is in training to mindspeak she losing a slight grip on reality and of course the s*** hits the fan at the least opportune time. Lily and Rule each deal with individual conflicts and struggles, creating a nice feel to this addition. With her normal support under attack, Lily and Rule must fight their own battles and try to save those they care about.
Mind Magic did not disappoint and I easily become critical of series that have this many books in them. If you have not read this series, it is a MUST read for lovers of Urban Fantasy. I would caution about trying to start this series on this book. This series is one continuation and every book provides a look out of another window and into this world. Trying to peek out of one without knowing what has previously been revealed, will likely be information overload.
I rate Mind Magic by Eileen Wilks 4.5 out of 5 Bullets!
I received this book directly from the publisher. I also purchased the paperback later for my collection of this series. All opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way.
Once again the world building, as well as the twists and intricate details of this mystery and how things work are incredible. This type of thing with the theory on magic has blown me away since the first book. This takes magical theory in a new direction. Plenty of action, tension and emotion along with a lot of details on not only magical theory and the conspiracy, but on the investigative process that pulls it all together. Ok, sometimes all of these details can get pretty deep, but the author is good at changing the course of the conversation or thoughts enough to prevent those details from becoming overwhelming.
If you've been reading this series, you'll find this one difficult to set aside for a time.

I can highly recommend re-reading the previous books as a lead up to this one. It's complicated enough without being on top of who's who. And besides, the whole series is a delight.
