I did enjoy it, and will enthusiastically move on to the next in the series, but it wasn't quite as great - so I dropped a star.

The lead characters remain fully 3D and fascinating. I love being inside their heads. It is rare to find people so well drawn, and I appreciate their ethics, dilemmas, affections, humour and courage.

However, the plot felt very episodic, almost as if it was a filler plot within the greater story arc.

This writing is definitely NOT formulaic (it is beautifully detailed, sensitive and witty) but the plot didn't feel quite as well crafted as normal - and rather flat.

This book continues what is one of the best series of its type; it bears multiple re-readings (which I do when each book is released!)The characters are engaging and, whilst remaining recognisable, do grow and develope through the books. Really looking forward to 'Death Magic'.

Since this type of book, ie paranormal /vampire/werewolf is my preferred "relaxaread" I keep up with the new offerings as often as I can. Being a writer myself I have few spare moments. I did not think too much of this series I found it too reliant on other books of its type and the characters did not keep my attention. It seems that when a certain theme makes it big ( Feehan, Adrian.Kenyon, Warren)others climb on the bandwagon and not always as successfully or as gripping for the reader. I would like to see Ms Wilks try a different theme because the talent is there.

Nice continuation of the series 8 Mar 2009
By Fathom - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm glad the plot returned w/ the original characters of Rule Turner and Lily Yu as the leading characters in this book.

FBI agent Lily and her werewolf mate Rule are in a local town trying to deal w/ the custody rights of his son w/o the media catching a whiff of the news. Inadvertantly, on this personal trip Lily gets involved in serial murder case in the area. Being the "touch sensitive" that she is, she knows that the murders are magical related and therefore part of the FBI MCD jurisdiction.

I actually enjoyed the plot of this book very much. The other books were more fantasy/paranormal types. However, this story despite the paranormal aspects of it had a good police murder mystery plot.

The only thing I would have liked more would be for more initimate scenes. However, the plot was very good and found myself reading it in one sitting.

I would highly recommend this book, but only to those who have read the previous books otherwise the characters and the background history would be too confusing.

strong urban fantasy police procedural 3 Feb 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
FBI Agent Lily Yu and her soulmate California's Nokolai clan werewolf Rule Turner are in North Carolina planning to bring home his son, Toby, who lives with his grandma. While on a wolf run near the Lediolf clan's home, he smells death. He follows the scent to a grave containing three corpses and the lingering infection of death magic.

Since Agent Lily is already at the crime scene, she is put in charge of the official investigation. Another "death magic" homicide occurs; leading Lily to believe that something new at least to her is the serial killer. Werewolf sorcerer Cullen tells Lily someone has created a deadly wraith, but offers no clues how ends the reign of terror.

The latest Agent Yu "Mortal" urban fantasy police procedural is refreshed by the family element and by a unique serial killer who the FBI operative, her werewolf significant other and the sorcerer have no earthly idea how to defeat it. Thus solving the whodunit turns out relatively easy while solving how to prevent further deaths proves seemingly impossible. Eileen Wilks provides a strong entry in her Yu thrillers (see MORTAL DANGER).

Mortal Sins 13 May 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lily Yu is with her lover and mate, Rule Turner, in North Carolina on personal family business. Lily is a member of the FBI's Magical Crimes Division and when you are mated to the lu nuncio of the Nokolai werewolf clan, nothing is as simple as taking time off to deal with personal issues. The trip is so that Rule can gain custody of his son and deal with a little bit of clan business.

When bodies are found and death magic is apparent (a federal crime), Lily is pressed into service to discover what is going on in the North Carolina woods. Nothing is adding up and suspects are becoming victims as the investigation goes on. If that wasn't enough to confuse things, the mother of Rule's son has appeared and she has an agenda of her own. Lily and Rule have to use every one of their advantages and bring in friends to solve the crime and keep the entire family safe and together forever.

Mortal Sins adds yet another chapter in Lily and Rule's lives. This time they have to track down an illusive murderer while dealing with unexpected issues concerning the custody hearing for Rule's son. I love the twisty turns that happen when Lily and Rule have to combine both their responsibilities and try to stay within their respective rules. Lily and Rule become more and more in love as the book unfolds and the danger come up close and personal. There were several places where I was wondering what would happen next and I have to admit that I could not figure out who was the real criminal was or how close it would come to Rule and Lily. I was very happy and shocked by the ending and can't wait for the next chapter in Rule and Lily's lives. Mortal Sins is a great paranormal suspense filled book that will keep you scratching you head. While it could be read alone, I would probably suggest reading the series in order as each book is building the lives of Lily, Rule and their friends and family.

Love, Love Love this Series! 3 April 2010
By M. Grigsby - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Eileen Wilks has quickly become one of my favorite author. Her ability to weave an intriguing story using atypical heroes and heriones is outstanding. I just love Lily's grandmother and unique abilities. The world of the Lupi is unlike no other werewolf tale. FBI agent Lily Yu (also a sensitive) and her Lupi lover, Rule Turner (La Nuncio of the Nokolai Lupi clan) go to North Carolina to take custody of Rule's son. A simple task you would think; however, the road is paved with peril and intrique. Rule's son's mother enters the picture ensuring there will be an obstacle and three dead bodies appear with the stench of death magic which takes up quite a bit of Lily's time. Oh what a tangled web and I just loved it! I gobbled up all six novels in the series within a week and now I find myself in the precarious position of having to wait until next year for the next book. Oh well, I guess I will just have to read them again and again!

Lily And Rule Are Still Great 28 Jan 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very glad to get back to Lily and Rule as the main characters. I think that switching to a different set of lead characters for a book or two was a great idea to keep the series fresh, and I was really excited to read about Cynna and Cullen originally, but I ended up not really enjoying their storyline that much. So, getting back to Lily and Rule was something of a relief.

This isn't a series that I feel you can pick up in the middle. Each book builds on each other and I think you'll lose the attachment and care you'd have after reading the other books if you jumped into the series here. I think this series is good enough to make reading all of the books worth it, but that's just me. :)

I really liked getting to see more of Toby in this book. His very existence is so important to Rule that I've been craving more information about their relationship. I certainly got that here, and I was very pleased by how that whole situation resolved.

Occasionally things got a bit slow while reading, but it always ended up picking back up. The storyline with Toby and the storyline with the magically influenced murders really kept my attention. I think Wilks does an excellent job making Lily's job seem lifelike and interesting without boring the reader with too much tedious detail.

Rule and Lily continue to be the main draw of this series. Even after so many books in the series I still find their relationship interesting to read about. The author continues to have them work through the issues that arise and shows them both working to navigate the unfamiliar waters of the mate bond.

I think one of my favorite things about this series is that in the midst of all these paranormal creatures, Lily and Rule seem like a normal couple doing the best that they can to work out their issues to make sure their relationship continues to be happy. And I don't mean normal as in Romance couple normal, I mean real life normal.

Lily and Rule talk things out and don't have huge misunderstandings that create high drama for the reader. They disagree and they occasionally snipe, but if they're mad they usually back away and then come back together later to try to work things out. They don't scream and throw things and play the hate game. They seem real and I love them for it. Don't get me wrong, I like drama, but I crave relationships like this in more of my books.

I loved the way that this story developed, but I feared for a while there that I would have to reach through the book and strangle a certain mother. I CANNOT believe she did that. I know that she loves him (even if it's not healthy) but I still haven't forgiven her, even if other characters have. I wouldn't be displeased at all to hear that something unfortunate had occurred and she would never again be able to mess up their lives.

The end of this book had my eyebrows shooting up in surprise. I had been wondering if that would ever crop up, and I'm excited to see where the author goes with it.
