This is the ninth book in the series and it really is a series that is best read in order. I'm glad I didn't skip the novella because it takes place parallel to this one and is referenced.
The story opens right at the holiday season with Lily and Rule recovered from the troubles in book eight and living protected now that the Lupi are at war with the evil goddess and her followers led by Robert Friar. Lily chafes under the lack of privacy, but understands the necessity.
Things mix up when Cullen's lab is broken into and an important project is stolen. There is a traitor at clanholme who is working with someone on the outside who wants what Cullen has invented. Lily and Rule follow the clues that lead them to investigating in San Francisco. Lily's sister and a surprise relation of Rules are deeply involved. Their enemy is plotting in the shadows and leading them along a certain path. They must figure it out quickly before it's too late. With the help of friends and dubious allies they work hard to recover Cullen's project and stop the new plot against them.
Each book provides an exciting and intriguing mystery plot, a bit more about the Lupi world, and an element of reflection. Lily and Rule both learn more about trust and communication, but also actions meant for protection. Both also are faced with new family elements and another layer to their mate bond. Surprising new characters are introduced and a carryover from the last book has an important role to play. I enjoyed it all though was a little impatient as the book set up for the excitement in the last half. Well worth it.
All in all, another strong installment in the series for me. Looking forward to where things go next for Lily, Rule and the rest.
Mortal Ties by Eileen Wilks is the ninth book in the Lupi series. The Lupi series by Eileen Wilks is one of my all time favorites. It has a very strong Urban Fantasy feel, but is titled a Paranormal Romance. I think this is partly because of the deep world building. Eileen Wilks has created a truly exciting and clear world in this Lupi series. Eileen Wilks makes you feel as if the world she created is your world. Several key factors in this series is why it’s at the top of my list.
The first reason – Character Growth. Often I read a series and by the 5th or 6th book the stories are still great, but the characters are stagnant. The character might be well developed, but they are almost frozen in life. Not growing, not progressing, just existing. NOT this series. Every book in this series the characters are flowing with the story. The story is not simply moving around them. They are changing with it. I believe this is partially why these book feel so realistic. Rule and Lilly have been through many changes and this book is no exception.
The second reason – World Building. It is just fantastic and keeps growing. Every new book in this series adds a new element as Lilly and Rule learn more about the other races in the world and the lands they live in. I don’t want to give spoilers, so I won’t say anymore.
The third reason – The Bad Guys! They are truly evil doers of epic proportions. You have an understanding of what makes them tick and the goals they possess. Eileen has made you passionate about hating them. These three aspects is what makes this series a forever keeper and one I will reread.
I also can’t leave out my love for Rule and Lily. Rule is my perfect Alpha. Respectful, loyal, sexy, and deep just touches the surface of what I love about Rule. He is willing to break rules to follow his heart. Rule’s life is complicated and demanding, but he never whines and always thinks about his pack and chosen. Lily is his perfect counter-part. Lily is just kick-ass. She loves and fights with a passion that I can relate to and recognizes her own flaws. The way Lily and Rule love, not only one another, but their families and friends is beautiful. Mortal Ties did start out a little slow, but the second half was like entertainment crack. Overall Mortal Ties left me hungry for the next book and consumed by the World of the Lupi. I don’t want to leave! I would not try to read Mortal Ties as a stand alone. This really is a series you don’t want to miss. Mortal Ties is a great installment in the Lupi series.
