Lupine sorcerer Cullen Seabourne and FBI Agent Cynna Weaver are just coming to terms with having a baby, when they are lured to another realm where magic is commonplace and night never ends. Their only way home lies in tracking down a missing medallion-one also sought by powerful beings who will do anything to claim it.

Our book club has reached book 4 of the World of Lupi series by Eileen Wilks. Night Season is more of a Cullen and Cinna book than we’ve had before. We don’t see much of Lily and Rule, but there is a lot going on in this installment so you don’t really miss them. This installment goes into a completely different realm, with a whole bunch of new characters. The focus is almost completely off the Lupi.

Cullen and Cinna end up getting tricked into a whole new realm where Cinna meets someone unexpected. She’s already struggling to deal with the new revelation about her situation with Cullen, but now adding this new situation puts some more stress on her. Cinna has been brought to this realm to use her Finding skills. There is a missing medallion that can only be held by a ruler of the realm. It can drive anyone who is not supposed to have it crazy. But it is prophesied that Cinna will be able to retrieve it. It is a dangerous trek to find the medallion and it takes some serious trust between our couple to accomplish their task. It was really nice to see how close Cinna and Cullen had become. I think they make a great couple.

This new realm was definitely interesting to explore. It had light and dark seasons and no real days. There were a lot of ideas and rules surrounding humans that will make this kind of controversial when and if the realms try to negotiate some kind of relationship. However, with the surprising and even a little bit ironic twist to the realm’s new leader, some of those rules might change. I can’t wait to see how this realm grows and becomes connected with Earth.

Night Season was a really fun installment in the World of Lupi series. The relationship building between Cinna and Cullen along with the whole addition of a new realm made for interesting twists and turns. I can’t wait to start the next installment!

About Eileen Wilks

Eileen Wilks’ first book, a Silhouette Desire published in 1996, hit the USA Today Bestseller List and was nominated for Romantic Times’ Best First Short Contemporary award. Since then, her books have appeared consistently on national bestseller lists. With thirty two books in print and novellas in nine anthologies, she has been a finalist in the prestigious Rita Awards three times, as well as receiving several nominations from Romantic Times, including one for Career Achievement in Series Romantic Suspense.

Each book in her World of the Lupi series gains a larger audience. It was originally sold in the Romance section of bookstores, but more and more you will be able to find copies cross-shelved under Sci-Fi and Fantasy as the popularity of the series grows!

Eileen has lived in the West Texas town of Midland, TX for over 30 years–three years as a young teen, and the remaining years since she moved back here as an adult. When she first started writing over 10 years ago, it hit her like the first drink for an alcoholic . . . or the first kiss for Romeo and Juliet.

She came to writing romance in a roundabout way. Having read and loved science fiction for years, that’s where she first tried her hand when the writing bug bit. Somehow her stories always ended up having a strong romantic subplot, but she hadn’t read a romance since the early 80’s and didn’t think “those little books” were her kind of stories. But when a friend in her critique group began working on a romance novel, Wilks decided she needed to give the genre another try. She asked her friend to recommend some titles–and quicker than you can say “Jayne Ann Krentz,” she fell in love. The genre had been busy growing up while she wasn’t watching. These days, with romances comprising over 50% of the mass market books published in the U.S., there are romances to appeal to almost every taste–historicals, paranormals and contemporaries that range from romantic suspense to romantic comedy, from inspirational to sizzling.

Eileen covered a lot of territory before coming home to Midland, having lived in Canada and Venezuela as well as twelve U.S. cities in five states.
